An Overview of Level Measurement Techniques
In order to determine the type of level measurement technique to be applied, a number of questions ought to be borne in mind. First, a complete knowledge of the type of vessel, including internal obstructions, size and depth, and existing connections, must be acquired. The technique applied will also depend on the type of substance to be measured - whether it is solid, liquid, dielectric, as well as the temperature and pressure of the substance. Moreover, any possible chemical reactions and the amount of electricity that can be consumed must also be checked.
