Process Instrumentation : Level Measurement


Level measurement of fluids in process equipment is necessary to maintain proper fluid levels in concerned equipment. Every equipment has Normal liquid levels (NLL), high liquid level (HLL) and low liquid level (LLL). Equipment shall ideally  operate at Normal liquid level. Level sensors provide signal to pumps control unit and control valves so that they can take necessary action to maintain liquid level at NLL.

There are various types of level measuring instruments. Some are for local readout, some transmit level information to process control room. Level switches send signal only when level in an equipment goes above HLL or below LLL.
