Different Methods to Measure Fluid Levels

Different Methods to Measure Fluid Levels

When you need to measure fluid levels, you have a few choices in front of you. Make sure that you’re fully aware of all of your options when you decide to purchase your non-invasive flow meter. You’ll want to know what each kind of meter is capable of so you know which one best suits the needs of your business. You don’t want to end up with a meter that doesn’t get the job done and end up frustrated.

Continuous Float Level Transmitters

This kind of fluid level sensor functions somewhat similarly to the dipstick on your car. The tip goes into the water and sends vibrations up the rod that indicate where the water is at. This is a simple but effective fluid level sensor that can get the job done without too much fuss. This is a great choice if you’re looking to handle your fluid level sensor needs as easily as possible.

Differential Pressure Transmitter

This fluid detection sensor detects the pressure at the high and low end and transmits the data back to determine the fluid level. It’s a great way to make sure that you’re getting an accurate reading without an overly complicated device.

Load Cell

This type of fluid detection sensor measures weight to give accurate readings on the fluid level in the object. There are a wide variety of the cells, from the cheaper mass-produced type to the custom-designed kind, that can give even more accurate readouts.

Radar Level Transmitters

This noninvasive flow meter is the perfect way to measure the fluid level without interfering with it directly. There are times when you don’t want to make direct contact with the water in order to measure it, and this is the perfect way to get those accurate measurements that you need without disturbing the liquid in any way. It requires more effort to set up than other methods, but it’s worth it for the accurate measurements. One of the weaknesses of this type of non-invasive flow meter is the fact that it’s not very portable.


This kind of sensor is very simple and straightforward to use. It uses ultrasonic waves to detect the fluid level without ever interfering with the liquid itself. This is one of the easiest and best ways to get these measurements, and it’s one that you should seriously consider for your business.

To Summarize

There is a wide variety of options for measuring fluid levels out there. It’s easy to see why when each of them has such different methodologies. Whatever your needs are, you should visit the Introtek website to learn more about this and other products.
