Types of tank gauging

Level measurement

In continuous tank gauging, the level of a medium in a tank is detected and converted into an electronic signal. The level signal is either displayed directly on site or incorporated into a process control or management system. The measured media are liquids, pastes, powders or bulk solids.

Point level detection

In point level detection, a level switch detects when a certain predefined level in the tank is reached. Such a device is employed when it is not necessary to measure every possible intermediate level, as is the case with continuous tank gauging. A switching command starts or stops filling equipment such as conveyors or pumps.
