Working principle

It operates by generating an ultrasonic wave or pulse and measuring the time it takes for the echo to return. An ultrasonic transmitter receiver along with the necessary signal conversion unit is mounted on top of tank for measurement of level of either solids or liquids as shown in figure. The ultrasonic waves generated by transmitter are directed towards the liquid surface in the tank which is to be measured. These waves get reflected from the surface of the liquid and are received by the receiver. The time take by the wave during its travel is a measure of the distance travelled by the wave. Therefore the time ‘t’ between transmitting and receiving a wave is proportional to the distance ‘d’ between ultrasonic set and surface of the liquid in the tank. As the distance ‘H’ between ultrasonic set and the bottom of the tank is fixed time‘t’ becomes a measure of level ‘l’ ie, t α d α (H-l).

Principle : It operates by generating on ultrasonic pulse and measuring the time it takes for the echo to return. In below diagram ultrasonic pulse source which is acts as transmitter. It will generate pulse which will pass through liquid and reflect back after certain time depend on level of liquid and base which will capture by receiver. Time will be measure between generation pulse and echo which then calibrated in term of distance.

In this method, an ultrasonic transmitter receiver is mounted on top of the tank for measurement of level. The ultrasonic beam generated by transmitter is projected downwards towards the liquid surface in the tank which is to be measured. This beam is reflected from the surface of the liquid and is received by the receiver. The time taken by the beam is a measure of the distance travelled by the beam. Therefore the time ‘t’ between transmitting and receiving a pressure pulse is proportional to the distance ‘h’ between ultrasonic set and surface of the liquid in the tank.
