Best Diesel Level Transmitter

2 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I would like to ask about the best transmitter to measure the level of a diesel tank. the tank is 2.5m high and 1.85m in diameter.

I was thinking of pressure transmitter, however, it is not clear for me how to convert pressure to level or to liters.

Your help is highly appreciated.

First of all, Diesel is hazardous so I would suggest contacting a distributor of sensor equipment to get a suitable sensor for your application. When that is said, you can mostly use any kind of sensor and just calculate the level in the tank. To take an example with a pressure transmitter you would need to know the min/max level of the pressure transmitter, and calculate what level of pressure corresponds with what level of height in the tank.

Example water: Sensor 0-10bar equals 0-10m of water (regardless of diameter in tank). Diesel has a different viscosity and would be a little different...
