In today’s competitive business environment, which focuses on increased throughput, economies of scale and a healthy bottom line, accurate and reliable measurement is a key component. Monitoring production processes by installing a wide range of sensors including flow, level, temperature, and pressure is common and crucial to be competitive. Although there are many reasons why plant managers decide to install monitoring devices in their process, environmental and regulatory reasons dominate one side of the spectrum, whereas quality, process control and monitoring govern the other.
And if that’s not enough, the market place offers many level technologies to choose from. Thus, making the right choice can present many challenges as to what the right technology is if there is not a basic understanding of the principle of operation and what to look for when deciding for a level sensor that best serves the application needs.
