Buoyancy / Float Level Sensors

Principles of Operation

The float in a buoyancy level sensor is less dense than the medium being measured, therefore floating on top of it, rising and falling with the medium level. The sensor then employs mechanical or magnetic methods to communicate level.

Advantages of Buoyancy | Float Level Sensors
