Magnetostrictive level probes

PURPOSE


Magnetostrictive level probes are intended for continious measurement of petroleum products levels (fuel and LPG), produced water level and temperature in tanks at petrol stations, tank farms and refineries.

TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS


SP300 Magnetostrictive probe 
Windbell SP series magnetostrictive probe is the core part of Automatic tank gauges products. This probe take advantages of Wiedeman effect, Viuary effect and Ultrasonic effect of intelligent material, by measuring time value difference which can be easily measured with high-precision, to convert to displacement difference, so achieven high accuracy measuring for liquid product level.

Applied liquid products

  • Gasoline
  • Diesel 
  • Kerosene
  • Ethanol Gasoline
  • Bio Diesel
  • Water
  • Other approved light oil products

Data measured

  • Product level
  • Water level
  • Temperature
  • Product inventory
  • Empty capacity (Order capacity)

Features

  • Transfer probe data to console in real time, including product level, water level, tempature
  • 5 points temperature sensors offer precision measurement as the basis of temperature compensation and leak detection
  • Digital signal transmit have remarkable highlights than traditional analog signals, especially on high anti-interruption ability, enhance long distance communication as 500m, and higher security.
  • Leak detection ability support 0.38Liter/Hour, and 0.76Liter/Hour, static and dynamic leak detection connects with SS160 console. This programmable Leak Detection can be set detect by daily, weekly, monthly or annually.

CONNECTION SCHEME EXAMPLE


Probes can be connected either directly to a PC through an interface converter RS-485/RS-232 and an intrinsically safe power supply unit (in case if used in explosive zones), or through a CBX controller for fuel dispensers and ATG systems for petrol stations. Using a CBX controller additionally allows simulataneous control over a large variety of fuel and LPG dispensers used at petrol stations and storage depots.
