What is water level gauge?

Water tank level gauges are used to quickly tell how much water is in your storage tank at any given time. We sells two types of level gauges: electronic indicators and mechanical indicators.

Electronic Indicators

Water tank level gauges with electronic indicators are a convenient way to keep an eye on your water levels from inside your own home or office.

Electronic level gauges consist of a transmitter and a receiver. The electronic indicator inside the tank transmits a wireless signal to a receiver located in the home or office.

Level gauges with electronic indicators eliminate the need for you to go to the actual physical location of the tank to read the water level.

Mechanical Indicators

Water tank level gauges with mechanical indicators work by using a weighted float and an indicator. The indicator is connected to a counter-weight which moves down with the rising water level and lifts up the float.

Level gauges with mechanical indicators are precisely accurate, as the sliding indicator located on the outside of the tank is able to match with the water level exactly.

Unlike level gauges with electronic indicators, those with mechanical indicators will never go down on you. Since there are no electronic parts,no power source is required and certainly no batteries. That makes these gauges an appealing option over those with electronic indicators.

Of course, the best one is whichever most closely suits the needs of your rainwater harvesting system.

3 Types of Level Gauges

Armoured level gauge: Armored level gages are used in a variety of applications, such as in petrochemical refineries and chemical plants. They work well in high-pressure environments, coming in a variety of PSI ratings up to 4000 PSI. They are available with transparent and reflex gauge glasses.

Tubular level gauge: Tubular gauges come with a clear or red line Borosilicate (Pyrex) to help improve visibility and measurement of clear fluids. They are often used in low-pressure applications up to 600 psi. Normally, they are recommended for use with oils and petrochemical liquids as opposed to water or steam as there is a possibility of the level gauge’s steel valves developing rust or corrosion. However, the tubular gauges sold at McRae Engineering have automatic valves made with corrosion-resistant ball checks and stainless steel valves.

Magnetic type level gauge: For this type of level gauge, the chamber is constructed of non‐magnetic materials, with its float engineered and located inside the chamber. It is sized and weighed to the specific gravity of the process fluid to be measured. The float contains a 360° magnetic assembly, generating a strong uniform magnetic circuit. The float will move according to the changes in the liquid level, allowing for precise measurements.

Liquid Level Gauges & Valves

Liquid level gauges are industrial meters that are used to determine the level of a liquid in a process tank. Liquid level gauge calibration is used to ensure proper readings are obtained when using level gauges.

They have several advantages including durability for severe environments and also having the ability to withstand high temperatures and pressure. They are easy to read from a distance and can be used in addition to a switch or alarm in a system. There is little maintenance required and all repairs can be done without disturbing the system.

They can also be customized for extreme applications. Our liquid level gauge & valve specialists are available to answer your product specification questions.
