Types Of Level Gauges
Posted by Admin on April, 24, 2015
Level Gauges have been in use for a long time, for measuring fluids. There are different types of fluids, which can range from neutral like water, and even acidic chemicals like hydrochloric and sulphuric acid. So it makes it important that different gauges should be made from different materials for accurately measuring the volume of these compounds without deteriorating. Some of the gauges used in different industries include:
- Magnetic: They are built for handling corrosive chemicals and can manage functions at severe environmental conditions. They can work at temperatures that can range up to 4000C and pressures of 220 bar. They can be installed in overhead and underground storage tanks and works according to Archimedes Principle and magnetic property of attraction and repulsion.
- Tubular: Tubular gauges usually have a glass exterior, so they are mounted parallel to the tank, so that it can measure the liquid level. At the end blocks of the gauge, there are ports for isolation of the drain valve and the vent plug. For preventing accidental damage to tubular gauge, they are fitted with guards in the form of tie-rods. They are also fitted with Auto ball check to prevent liquid loss. Tubular Level Gauge Manufacturer make good quality gauges that provide reliable readings for measuring liquids at low temperature or pressure.
- Reflex: They work on the principle of refractive differences between liquid and vapor. They are majorly used for detection of liquid level in a vessel. A transparent tube is attached to the gauge, where sight glass contains liquid behind it. This sight glass has prismatic grooves towards the liquid and vapor space, which would reflect the external light coming towards it. If light encounters the groves in vapor space, it appears silvery white, while in liquid space it would appear black.
Level Gauges play a very important part in determining the level of any liquid, hence used in many manufacturing and scientific industries.
