Liquid level indicator is equipment used to measure liquid level in industrial or household areas, where there is presence, storage

or need of any kind of liquid substance. Either in manufacturing processes or in storage areas, wherever there is liquid, a liquid level sensor is highly demanded for producing better quality or maintaining high standard. In industrial areas or manufacturing factories there is a dire need of keeping liquid, slurries, powders, granular and liquid gases at a fixed level, and hence different kinds of liquid sensors are used extensively. For such purposes and for the ease of operations in manufacturing Industries, different new and smart types of liquid level indicator are being manufactured in USA and all over the world. Some of the innovative new liquid level sensors are given below: Ultrasonic Liquid Level Indicator Ultrasonic liquid level indicator is by far the most advanced and safe technology being used in United States for the measurement of liquids and gases. One thing which makes it tempting enough is its simple usability. It is extremely easy to use and requires no training to operate it. It is best to measure the liquid level in huge steel containers, fire extinguishers and sprinkler systems. Magnetic Float Indicator Magnetic float liquid level indicator is used for the point level detection of liquids. It has a permanent magnet attached inside, which rise and fall to tell the measurement of variety of liquids in vast containers and cylinders. Conductive Liquid Level indicator This type of liquid level indicator is considered one of the best methods for measuring the high liquid level of harsh acids such as Nitric acid, caustic soda, ferric chloride and hydrochloric acid. Mostly used for the measurement of wastewater wells and pump controls, conductive liquid level indicators require very low voltage to run and thus prove to be the most economical liquid level indicators on industry level. Resistive Chain Level Indicator Resistive chain level indicators are used for the continuous level measurement detection of liquids. This device has a permanent magnet. It receives signals from voltage or currents proportional to the liquid level, which is being measured. Resistive chain level indicators are being used in chemical processing, marine industry, waste treatment, food processing and pharmaceuticals from ages. Optical Interface Level Indicator Used for two methods of detection. I.e. Point level detection method and continuous monitoring of solids and liquids, Optical level indicator measure the level of liquids, which have suspended solids. These sensors are used extensively for the measurement of wide variety of corrosive, organic and aqueous liquids in industry. Capacitance Level Indicator Capacitance level indicators are currently being used in pressure measurement of a number of different solids, organic and aqueous liquids and slurries. However, they may not prove to be the best liquid level detection method in case of tall containers having large amount of solids.
