  • What is a Pressure Regulator?

    A pressure regulator is a useful valve for controlling the flow rate of a gas or liquid. The valves automatically cut off the flow of the gas or liquid when the pressure inside the tank reaches a predetermined point. Usually, a pressure regulator is used to prevent high-pressure fluid or gas supplies from exploding, or to regulate the safe pressure range for less volatile materials. Pressure regulators vary depending on whether they are regulating the pressure of a gas or liquid. Pressure regulators are not interchangeable with flow regulators. For...

  • The Regulator of Water Pressure

    Plumbing relies on water pressure to function. Without water pressure, water would just stay stagnant in the pipes. If pressure is too low, water may not reach all the required faucets and applications throughout a building. On the other hand, if water pressure is too high it can result in eroded washers, banging pipes, leaks and potentially explosions. To monitor and regulate incoming water pressure, buildings are equipped with a water pressure regulator. Multistory buildings will most likely have more than one pressure regulator because more pressure is required to...

  • Pressure Calibrators: Checking for Accuracy

    Every system needs a safeguard to ensure that equipment is working properly and doing what it is supposed to be doing in as accurate a fashion as possible. For the pressure transducers, pressure sensors and pressure transmitters of the world, that check-up system is known as pressure calibrators. In essence, pressure calibrators do the same thing that pressure sensors do, except they are used to double check the accuracy of the sensors and are therefore much more rarely used. While measuring pressure, pressure calibrators are often designed to take temperature...

  • Level Transmitters: For Measuring Solids and Slurries

    Liquid and gas are not the only two substance types that are able to flow through pipes, tubes and systems and therefore require measurement. Solids and slurries may also flow, to a certain extent and need the same sort of monitoring that liquids and gases do for safety and maintenance reasons. Level transmitters are the tools used to monitor the flow of slurries and solids, utilizing similar parts as pressure transducers and pressure sensors but in two different styles. A variety of methods and technologies have also created variances in...

Industry Information

Level Transmitters

Level transmitters are devices that measure the level of a solid, liquid or slurry within a container and then convert the information into a comprehensible form. Transmitters are also called sensors or transducers; they both convert signals into a reading of pressure or temperature. There are two main ways level transmitters receive information: by making point level or continuous level readings.

Of the two types of information receiving styles employed by level transmitters, point level transmitters sense when a substance has reached a predetermined level, usually providing an alarm or electrical charge that shuts off the feed. Continuous level transmitters are made up of multiple sensors that provide a constant reading of the level of the substance. These transmitters are small and usually encased in stainless steel for protection because level transmitters are built to withstand a wide range of temperatures, pressures, substances and conditions in the specified space. This space can be a vat, tank, silo or other container used for mixing, processing or other operations. The transmitters perform an important task because they take measurements where people cannot, like in an enclosed tank or a vat of chemicals with a mixing blade. Knowing how much material is in a container is valuable across many industries because over or under-filling a specified space can lead to hazardous conditions as well as loss of product and time.


Level transmitters use many different methods and technologies to measure the levels of substances. These sensors are unaffected by changes in conductivity, temperature, pressure, humidity or moisture content as well as dust and static-charge buildup. There are five main kinds: non-contacting radar, guided wave radar, ultrasonic, differential pressure and vibrating fork. Non-contacting radar transmitters typically are installed on top of a container, so the waves are sent downward into the enclosure. The transmitter uses the returning echoes to determine how much substance is in the tank. Guided wave radar transmitters are able to provide both level and interface measurements because the advanced technology can differentiate between different layers of fluids, such as oil and water. Ultrasonic level transmitters have non-contacting sensors housed in watertight enclosures. They use ultrasonic waves to gather information. Differential pressure level transmitters take multiple readings in different places in the container and compare the readings to determine the level. Vibrating fork transmitters are used with fine powders and granular solids. Multiple tines are lowered down toward the powder and stop when they reach the top of it. They vibrate to minimize material buildup between the probes. Other styles include optical level transmitters, air bubblers and rotation paddle level transmitters.
