WIKA Part of your business
Pressure, temperature and level measurement solutions from WIKA are components integrated in the business processes of our customers.
This is why we consider ourselves to be not just suppliers of measurement components but rather more a competent partner that offers comprehensive solutions in close co-operation with our customers – customised and precisely designed products for the exact requirement.
Tank level measurement
Whenever liquid media circulate from and into a storage tank in the circuit, for example the cooling lubricant of a machine tool or when liquids are conveyed from a tank or delivered into a tank, the filling height in the tank is a relevant control variable.
This can be designed as a simple on/off control of the pump using a float switch or an optoelectronic level switch. Frequently, a continuously measuring submersible pressure sensor (hydrostatic pressure of the liquid column in the tank) is also used to operate an energy-efficient speed-controlled pump.
For all installations, the customer requires a “fit and forget” solution. The plant must function 100 % reliably, resistant against the widest variety of media and insensitive to solids. Of course this also applies to float switches and submersible pressure sensors.
The pictured example of a sewage lifting system shows the challenging task of maintenance-free level measurement with an extremely solids-laden medium. Here WIKA, in close cooperation with our customers, has developed a solution with unique reliability.
