How often do you calibrate your level transmitters?

Level Measuring Transmitter is a device providing continuous level measurement. A very common and practical application of the transmitter is to measure anything in bulk–liquid or solid– used for process control. Different level transmitters have different working principle. In this article, we are going to touch base with a few of their types and look into the detailed reason behind calibrating them.


Using in a myriad of applications that requires measurements of levels within containers or tanks, Level Measurement Transmitter always comes handy. These transmitters are applicable in many industries such as water treatment industries, power chemicals, food & beverage, and material handling. It can be useful in various different types of processes.

Capacitance Level Transmitters–Transmitters with a dielectric medium between two or more electrodes stored in a tank or container. Capacitance level transmitters can calculate the current-fill level of the tank or container.

Hydrostatic Level Transmitter–Transmitters that determine fluid contents of a container by measuring the presence of a resting body of the fluid within it. Also, known as pressure level transmitters.

Magnetic Level Transmitters–Transmitters that are suspended in a buoyant float, usually in a narrow auxiliary column. These use magnetic objects as transmitters and help in measurement owing to the tendency to float or sink on the liquid level.

Ultrasonic Level Transmitters–Transmitters with ultrasonic transducers mounted at the top or near the top of a container. They enable the transducer to send an ultrasonic pulse and get reflected upon getting hit. The sensor calculates the level based on the time between transmitted and received the reflec signal.


Lastly, your competitive edge depends on maintaining and continuously improving your plant efficiency. This can be accomplished through periodic calibration of your transmitters at fixed intervals.

Our qualified engineers and technicians are fully trained to handle all aspects of on-site instrument calibration based on your business requirements. They can optimize your calibration intervals and identify potential improvements to help reduce calibration costs. This will ensure that your plant performs with maximum accuracy to improve your production without any temporary shutdowns. Our on-site calibration services are supported with comprehensive and easy-to-interpret calibration certificates. Hence, optimize your calibration with us and look out for any uncalled-for incidents in your machines beforehand.
