1. Application purposes of modern level gage

Why is the level gage bought:

  • increasing ofmeasuring accuracy;

  • elimination of possibilities of individual errors at measuring;

  • automation of measuring process – refusal fromgauge stick;

  • use of measured data inautomated accounting systems;

  • obtaining of information aboutproduct density;

  • use as signalling device in system of EDES;

  • use as a device for automatic calibration of tanks;

  • continuous observation of life cycle of tank and product in it

  • during the whole storage period


Kiev 2013

2. Review ofUkrainian market of level gages

  • According to the used measuring method:

  • magnetostriction

  • (“float”) ~ 64%

  • capacity ~ 0,3%

  • - radio frequency ~ 12%

  • ultrasonic

  • (only “ND”) ~ 17%

  • - others~ 6,7%

* All known types of objects are taken into account

(filling stations, petroleum storage depots, industry, railway, etc.)


Kiev 2013

2. Review ofUkrainian market of level gages

  • The main brands, used in Ukraine:

  • - Veeder-Root (TLS…)

  • OPW (Site Sentinel…)

  • Struna (PSD…)

  • “ND” (UUS, UUP…) ~ 24%

  • - othermanufacturers ~ 18%

~ 58%

* All known types of objects are taken into account

(filling stations, petroleum storage depots, industry, railway)


Kiev 2013

  • Characteristic features of ultrasonic level measuring method

Background of creation and developmentof method:

  • conversion of method frommilitary production ofUSSR;

  • deeplong-term theoretical and practicalinvestigation of

  • ultrasound extension properties in liquid medium;

  • application practice on hundreds of objects of varioussections and

  • areas of practice (filling stations, petroleum storage depots,

  • utility companies, industry, etc.)


Kiev 2013

  • Characteristic features of ultrasonic level measuring method

Positive side of the use of ultrasound as“measuring device”:

  • possibility of use of noncontact measuring method throughmetal walls of tanks;

  • possibility of determination of weight characteristic of fuel of standardized types*,

  • percentage ratio of propane/butane for liquefied gas;

  • absence of high requirements to wear resistance and strength of equipment design

  • at realization of method ;

  • - simplicity of transducer design and method for their installationin/on tanks,

  • as a result– simplicity of service maintenance andsimplified service support procedure,

  • absence of necessity of expensive SPTA;

  • - durability of ultrasonic sensors is not less than14 years

*There is a possibility of identification of

oil product manufacturer


Kiev 2013

  • Characteristic features of ultrasonic level measuring method

Principle of operation of ultrasonic method:

  • based ondetection and ranging of reflecting surface by means of ultrasound

  • throughsound transparent media;

  • - level gage carriers out time measuring between radiation of acoustic signals and

  • arrival of echo signals fromreflecting surfaces;

  • according to the results of detection and ranging a boundary line of material

  • (liquid level) or two unmixed liquids of various density (level of bottom water)

  • is determined,

  • in case ofstratification– levels for separation of liquids;

  • self-diagnostic check– presence of “measuring base”, automatic regulation of signal

  • amplification level, etc.


Kiev 2013

  • Characteristic features of ultrasonic level measuring method

Unquestionableadvantages of ultrasoniclevel gages,

to which it is necessary to pay attention:

  • - calibration interval of 2 years (rivals– 1 year);

  • periodic verification can take place directly on object -

  • special imitator is developed for this purpose and verificationcan be carried out without

  • dismantling of probes (rivals– dismantlingandexport);

  • central block of level gage isunified: more than 64 probes of different types

  • (immersion, surface contact, air, OPW probes) can be simultaneously connected to one

  • central block;

  • - absence ofmoving elements, exception of mechanical wear

4. Review of models of ultrasonic level gages

Level gages with SURFACE CONTACT

electroacoustic transducers:

  • - used for noncontact measuringof liquid leveland estimate of density;

  • are essential for control of tanks with liquefied gas ortoxic aggressive liquids;

  • allow carrying out measuring without opening of tanks onrailway vehicles;

  • - while working with gas– determination of propane/butane ratio

Stationarylevel gageUUS-00*

Portable level gageUUP

for railway tanks**

* There are no any analogs in Ukraine

** estimation measuring of product density

without opening of tank is possible
