What are the types of Level Gauges and its applications?

What is Level Gauges?

Level Gauges is a type of meter used to determine the amount of liquid in a fixed storage or process tank. The head, float, tape, lower anchored bracket, guide wires, elbows, anchors, coupling, pipe support brackets, and pipework are all components of a gauge. The Liquid Level Gauge Calibration is used to ensure that the correct readings are received when using Level gauges.

Types of Level Gauges.

Different types of level gauges and various characteristics of character have a variety of behavior for a variety of kinds of various types for the intended application. The ordinary types of level gauges are:

  • Reflex Level Gauges
  • Transparent Level Gauges
  • Bi-Color Level Gauges
  • Magnetic Level Gauges

Reflex Level Gauges

Reflex level Gauge Level Gauge Based on Laws and Reason Rules

Reflex Glass Level Gauges Glasses are using glasses, prismatic exploitation in 90 of Section corner. When working, the cavity is filled with liquid in the lower part and gases and gases in the upper part.

In different bridges of liquid, the liquid level is known in the glass/steam field. Reflex level gauges don’t need a special light. The daylight is sufficient to see the level.

Liquid Zone:

The zone seems to be dark when the gauge is on the external face of the glass, so did not deviate through the glass. With a 45° inclination, these rays reach the glass/liquid interface. Critical angle glass/fluid is always better up to 45 °.

Therefore the incident of the rays within the Critical Conclusion does not reflect the inner walls of the gauge-cavity, and the rays cannot be seen from outside. In fact zone is dark and almost black and observer.

Gas / Vapor Zone:

To the observer, this zone appears silver bright. In the liquid zone, light rays approach the glass/gas-vapor interface at an angle of about 45°.

The rays are completely reflected because this angle is greater than the glass/gas-vapor critical angle, making a 90° turn and returning at a 45° angle to the nearest glass/gas-vapor interface. For the same reason, they will be reflected and turned 90 degrees towards the observer, giving the zone a silvery glow.

Apps :

Reflex Glass Level Gauges can be used in most liquids and apps.

For example, the reflex level gauges cannot be used:

  • Need to read (interface) between two fluids (interface)
  • when the process fluid is high-pressure water steam, because the glass must be protected from the solvent action of the boiler water using mica shields.

Transparent Level Gauges

Transparent Level Gauges are always attached to two plate transparent glasses. The liquid status indicates as a result of different transparency of two media.

The process can attach transparent level gages with Micha Shields to protect the surfaces from the full operation of the liquid. The applications should be recommended to save glass from the transparent level gauge and high temperatures.

Apps :

  • In a corrosive liquid.
  • The observation of the interface
  • Monitoring of liquid color
  • For an operating stressful steam> 20 bar
  • If repeated heat shocks will come

Bi-Color Level Gauges

Bi-color level gauges are used in boilers to measure the media level. To protect against wet steam generated in a boiler drum, the gauge is made of high-quality mica sheets. The level is determined by comparing the indexes of refraction of steam and water. A transparent level gauge with a liquid chamber in a wedge-shaped section is known as a bi-color level gauge. An illuminator on the device’s backside is equipped with two color filters, one red and the other green. When red-colored light rays strike the water, they are averted and absorbed to one side. When the same light is shone on the steam, it passes through and appears red. When light passes through green filters, the opposite happens. This allows users to declare that each piece of media is available on the system.

Magnetic Level Gauges

To control the fluids, a magnetic field is used. Anything that is dropped in a liquid is said to have the ability to change the weight of the fluid. It can be used in the apps that are magnetic level gauges and apps that are broken or destroyed by glass gauges. They have the maximum temperature and stress of operational temperature and stress, respectively, and they can be used under the soil. Even in a very poisonous or destroying media, these gauges can be found in Inter-Face levels.
