Underground Oil Storage Tank Level

Application Problem: A customer required a robust and reliable level sensor to monitor the level of oil in an underground storage tank.

Application History: The environment posed challenges for the customer to find a suitable level sensor that was explosion-proof and able to reliably monitor the low dielectric oil in the tank.

Solution: ABM’s explosion-proof, non-contact radar level sensor was selected for the application. The sensor measures the level of the low dielectric oil and with the oil-water interface detector mode, is also able to measure the water level in the tanks bottom. High condensation inside the tank does not affect the radars performance as the self-cleaning operation automatically removes water from the rod antenna.
