If you have a tank of any sort of liquid that needs monitoring, you want a liquid flow sensor that gives you liquid level measurement as accurately and as automatically as possible. Determining when you need to refill your tank or ration your liquid should not be an arduous task. Fortunately, there is a wide variety of liquid sensors of all different types.
Liquid sensors operate in many different ways, and can be both non-contact ultrasonic measures or full immersion sensors, and automotive liquid level sensor systems may be set up in custom configurations. Here are some options to look for when browsing for liquid flow sensors:
1. Type of sensor. Decide whether you want an ultrasonic, immersion, or buoyant sensor.
2. Automated systems. Find a full sensor system that can give automatic alerts about liquid levels and even refill an empty tank.
3. Custom sensors. Many companies offer to custom build a liquid level sensor to fit your personal needs.
Look through online catalogs of liquid level control sensorsCatalogs are an easy way for you to see many different products at once, but printed copies can be bulky and take to time ship to your office. Look through online catalogs of parts and services, or find a directory of multiple companies that offer the liquid level sensors you need.
Monitor multiple tanks with a single tank level sensorWith an operation requiring many different types of liquids or fuels, it's a pain to have to set up separate flow sensors for each tank and monitor each one individually. Look for liquid flow sensors than can monitor many tanks at once so you have a single source for information on the status of every tank you use.
Have a custom liquid level sensor built just for youIf you find that the standard products in catalogs don't fit your needs, have a supplier build a sensor just for you.
- For easy viewing of liquid levels in your tanks, think about purchasing a liquid level sensor monitor along with the sensor itself
