Typical Ultrasonic Level Sensor Applications and Advantages

Typical Ultrasonic Level Sensor Applications and Advantages

Ultrasonic Level Sensor Applications are very broad. The ultrasonic liquid level sensor uses ultrasonic pulse echo to achieve liquid level measurement. It can be widely used in liquid level-material level monitoring.

The transducer (probe) of an ultrasonic level sensor emits high-frequency ultrasonic pulses. When it encounters the surface of the liquid level being measured, the sound wave is reflected back. Part of the reflected echo is received by the transducer (probe) and converted into an electrical signal. Users can truly know the water level based on the time of the reflected signal. It is the most common non-contact liquid level measuring instrument in industry.

Typical Ultrasonic Level Sensor Applications

Ultrasonic Level Sensor calculates the distance between the measured liquid surface and the emitted pulse based on the reflection time of the emitted pulse, thereby achieving the purpose of measuring the height of the liquid. Ultrasonic level gauges are mainly used to measure various types of liquid and solid media. Such as: various oils, water, emulsified slurry, soap liquid, asphalt mortar, concrete mortar, etc.

1. Liquid level measurement in sewage treatment plants:

The composition of sewage is complex and corrosive, and floating objects are easy to form on the liquid surface. Therefore, the liquid level meter is required to be sensitive and reliable. Ultrasonic wave has the characteristics of strong signal penetration and sensitive response, and is the recommended choice for sewage level measurement.

2. Chemical tank liquid level monitoring:

Chemical tanks in various sizes. Ultrasonic Level Meter, high frequency model, with a maximum range of 40 meters. The entire output system is equipped with 4-20mA + RS485 communication as standard. Resistant to stirring, foam and floating objects.

3. River-channel-reservoir water level monitoring:

Ultrasonic Level Sensor can be used to monitor water level changes in reservoirs, dams, rivers, channels and other water bodies in real time. This real-time monitoring capability can help the water conservancy department understand water levels in a timely manner and predict the occurrence of floods. Provide accurate data support for reservoir scheduling and flood control decisions.

At the same time, Ultrasonic Level Sensor can also be configured as an open channel flow meter.

Non-contact liquid level measurement

4. Liquid level measurement in automated production lines:

Ultrasonic Level Sensors can measure liquids and can be configured as liquid level switches. While monitoring the real-time liquid level, high and low liquid levels can be controlled. Can replace other types of liquid level control.

5. Lake-river-shallow water level measurement:

Utilizing ultrasonic level sensor technology, our portable ultrasonic depth sounder is a powerful product.

It is a water depth measuring instrument integrating ultrasonic transceiver sensor, service circuit, temperature compensation sensor and compensation circuit unit, display, control signal output and serial data or analog output unit (optional).

It is an ideal water depth measuring instrument that is widely used in hydrographic surveys, hydropower plants, reservoir areas, shallow seas, lakes, river surveys, and environmental water monitoring.

6. Sludge level measurement:

The ultrasonic sludge interface meter uses reliable ultrasonic echo detection principles to achieve real-time detection of sludge thickness. Use ultrasonic emission and echo analysis of suspended solids in water to determine the height of the sludge layer.

Provide reliable data for process control of related processes. This optimizes the process control processes such as mud discharge and dosing. It is used for mud level measurement in primary sedimentation tank, secondary sedimentation tank, concentration tank, water plant sedimentation tank, etc. in sewage treatment plants.

Explosion-proof ultrasonic liquid level sensor measures diesel liquid level

7. Diesel tank level measurement:

Explosion-proof ultrasonic liquid level sensors can be used in diesel storage tanks and other liquid level measurements that require explosion-proof levels.

The explosion-proof ultrasonic liquid level meter can be used with the volume recorder to monitor the tank volume.

8. Fire cylinder liquid level measurement:

A portable ultrasonic liquid level indicator developed using ultrasonic sensor technology. It can detect CO2 cylinders and indicate the level of pure liquid, emulsion liquid and suspended liquid.

9. Material level measurement:

The ultrasonic level meter sensor is installed above the silo and liquid tank and does not directly contact the material. It overcomes the shortcomings caused by other types of liquid (material) level meters that directly contact materials.
