Level Handbook now available for download

Don Horne   


Accuracy is paramount when choosing the right level measuring technology, and there are many factors to consider before purchasing, such as the existence of foam or gas fumes associated with the process, the dielectric or specific gravity of the process, pressure and temperature, and the use of an agitator, or the existence of a turbulent surface.

A variety of common technologies are available for continuous level measurement, including capacitance, free space radar, guided wave radar, gamma, pressure and ultrasonic. PROCESSWest’s Level Handbook contains a number of articles that provide expert advice and applications that work best for each of these technologies.
