The application of liquid level sensor

The application of liquid level sensor in monitoring Storage Tank Liquid Level in the petroleum field

With the growth of non-traditional drilling business, people's demand for liquid level sensors is also increasing. Oil and gas drilling has sprouted a new look. Nowadays, people use various sensors and controllers to drill for oil and gas. This high-tech means not only realize resource exploitation but also protects the environment.

The application of liquid level measurment in the field of oil and gas has become increasingly important. Water, oil and chemical fluids are integrated into the whole life cycle of oil wells, which is more obvious with the rise of non-traditional drilling technologies such as hydraulic fracturing. The emergence of new technologies and the introduction of new regulations require that various chemicals be monitored as well as the treatment of reflux and generated wastewater. In this way, the application of liquid level measurement will go far beyond the use of monitoring only the performance and reliability of equipment. Manufacturers now need to deal more with by-products in production processes to avoid environmental pollution by better collecting, storing and processing procedures. The use of a liquid level sensor will help these processes to be more efficient and reliable.

Tank level monitoring of Level sensor:

  • Chemical agent injection 
  • Hydraulic and lubricating oil tanks 
  • Monitoring of drilling fluid (mud) tanks 
  • Monitoring of liquid level in the conveying a process

Using a reliable liquid level sensor to monitor produced water

Although today's hydraulic fracturing is not restricted by the Water Purification Act, various environmental organizations have been urging drilling companies to conduct business in good faith and self-management of water use and pollutants. Many toxic substances are related to produced water from non-traditional drilling. Depending on the location, scale, and duration of the drilling site, the produced water may be treated on-site or transferred to other treatment facilities for treatment. Nevertheless, contaminated water is usually stored in a place in some form before being treated.

The liquid level sensor is suitable for high power output occasions. It can directly drive incandescent lamp indicator, sound alarm, relay or other situations. An infrared LED light source and photoelectric detector are accurately mounted on the base of the sensing end to ensure good optical coupling in the air. When the induction end is immersed in liquid, infrared light will be transmitted from the conical surface, and the light intensity received by the phototube will be reduced, resulting in changes in the output level. Various output circuits can meet different applications.
