How does a tilt level switch work?

The mechanical tilt level switch for bulk solids level measurement is the most simple, reliable, and economical solids level measurement technology on the market. Mechanical tilt level switches are ideal for applications such as grains, cereals, animal food, powders, and diverse bulk solids (pellets, stones, minerals, sawdust, etc.). For this reason, ATMI has developed its range of SOLIBA tilt level switches designed to stop the filling of diverse storage zones, such as: grain silos, port silos, airport silos, storage bins, bulk storage, etc. How does the SOLIBA tilt level switch work? The SOLIBA needs to be suspended vertically at the […]

Types of Level Guages

Level gauges measure the depth or level of liquids and powder in tanks. They use a variety of principles and produce outputs in electrical and pneumatic forms. The type to use depends on the substance in the tank. Here are a few The ultrasonic system reflects sound waves from the surface and determines the depth from the time taken to receive the reflected sound. The electronic version uses a variety of electrical affects including conduction of the fluid and capacitance. The pneumatic version bubbles air through the liquid and the pressure of the air is related to the depth. A […]
