Measuring liquid levels in water utilities applications with a sensor that is immersed in the fluid seems counter intuitive for accurate and dependable measurement. The unique and innovative Gill 7014 sensor turns this view on its head with its non-stick maintenance free coating. Here we take a quick look at the key benefits the sensor offers.
Providing the industry with a sensor that provides accurate and reliable level measurement in fluids with solids contamination. A recent application shows how Gill helps a well known UK water utility company overcome one of the water industries toughest problems.
Optimising the flocculation process to ensure maximum effectiveness requires that the volumes of water being treated is known. By combining the dimensions of the flocculation tank with an accurate and reliable water level measurement, Gill helped a US water company improve water quality whilst reducing their costs.
Measuring tank levels in wastewater processing is a difficult task to carry out with repeated accuracy and reliability. Liquids containing contamination and suspended solids suggests that the best option for measuring liquid levels is to use a sensor that does not come into contact with the fluid itself, such as Ultrasonics, to try to minimise the potential of false reading caused by contamination build-up or corrosion.
However, the 7014 conductive sensor from Gill Sensors & Controls is challenging the assumption that non-contact is the best answer to the seemingly intractable problem of reliable level measurement.
First we take a quick look at 5 benefits of the conductive sensor and then some of the comparative drawbacks of ultrasonic devices.
As proud sponsors of Bloodhound SSC, we're very excited to be attending the first test run at Cornwall Newquay airport.

Gill Sensors & Controls was approached because it offered durable and accurate capacitive liquid level sensors. The sensors are designed using solid-state technology with no moving parts and a tolerance of high temperatures which gives these sensors the reliability to meet the service specification of the locomotive.
The shock loads in Class 1 powerboat racing are so severe that the liquid level sensors supplied with the ballast tanks were only lasting 1 - 2 races. Read how, by fitting Gill liquid level sensors, the service life of the sensors went from weeks to 8 years.

The Terrier is a multi-function armoured digger, designed and built in the United Kingdom, to provide a wide variety of roles including obstacle and mine clearance, route opening and maintenance, digging-in, excavation and general engineer tasks.
Weighing 30 tonnes, Terrier can still reach speeds of almost 50mph. To ensure it can be used both night and day and provide operators with a full 360° surveillance capability, it is fitted with five on-board cameras and thermal imaging technology.
Potentially operating in combat zones - either with a crew or via remote control - dependable reliability is essential in such demanding and severe environments. Monitoring and controlling the sophisticated systems requires sensors that will also continue to function and provide reliable outputs in these challenging conditions.
