Level Control and Measurement
Fluid Level Control
Fluid level control is a mechanism, device or system which monitors, compares and regulates the level of liquids or gases within a process to a set value. Level control is used to adjust the level value to a safe level using electric or pneumatic signals. To provide good control, accurate measurement is paramount.
Fluid Level Measurement
Level measurement determines the position of the level relative to the top of bottom of the process fluid storage tank or silo. Level control and measurement is essential to assure the safety and profitability of industrial processes. This Technology Zone offers an insight into the latest innovations in level control and measurement of fluids.
Magnetrol® recently visited the second largest oil refinery in California. The facility produces roughly 270,000 BPD. It primarily produces gasoline, jet fuel and diesel, in addition to propylene gas and CO2.Read more

AURORA, IL – Fluid catalytic cracking, or FCC, is a key conversion process for many petroleum refining plants. The fluid catalytic cracking unit (FCCU) turns heavy, low-value feedstocks into high-value, lighter molecular weight hydrocarbons using a chemical catalyst.Read more
AURORA, IL – Gas turbines are used throughout power generation plants to drive electrical generators. The compressor of a gas turbine ingests a large amount of air containing particulate matter, aerosols of hydrocarbons and other organic compounds and gases. Although the larger particulate matter is filtered out, the other compounds are deposited on the compressor blades. Compressor washing removes this deposited fouling and restores the aerodynamic profile and compressor efficiency.Read more
AURORA, IL – There are many things to consider when choosing a radar transmitter. Deciding what instrumentation to use for a specific application will depend not only on the nature of the application, but also on other factors such as cost and availability. Four of the most important factors to consider when selecting radar level transmitters for any application are performance, diagnostics, versatility, and ease of use.Read more
BUCKS – Bell Flow Systems are proud to introduce the cost effective dipperLog NANO water level logger to our ground water measurement range. The dipperLog NANO sensor is a cost effective solution, costing only £299. The sensor is ideal for people looking to monitor water level applications in ground water, estuarine and surface water applications.Read more
BRANFORD, CT – Steam cogeneration, or CHP, is a highly efficient and environmentally friendly way to produce useful heat from electricity production. However, operating conditions in a CHP plant can be challenging for the longevity of equipment and components. Water is at a constant 260˚F (126˚C) and mineral salts and dirt create a corrosive environment that shortens the useful life of equipment.Read more
LUND – Alfa Laval UltraPure pumps are specifically designed for the toughest, most demanding pharmaceutical applications. From high-value, high-risk productions, where every second counts, to reliability and repeatability process-driven productions – whatever your challenge is, there is an UltraPure solution to meet your needs.Read more
AURORA, IL – Power generating facilities have large, open atmosphere collection basins known as sumps that are usually found in wastewater treatment areas. Often constructed of concrete, with depths ranging from four to ten feet, sumps function as collection and treatment sites for waste liquids ranging from storm water runoff to excess make-up water.Read more
