In an ideal world there would be a perfect liquid level measurement system that would work for every liquid and every application. Unfortunately, that product does not yet exist, leaving operators and technicians to go through the trial and error process of finding the level instrumentation that will work for them.
So in this high-tech world, is there still a need for the old faithful pneumatic systems like air bubblers? The answer is YES! Why? Because air bubbler systems work when other systems fail.
Air bubbler systems will work with the more difficult of liquids such as…
In order to understand level readings, you must first comprehend how the instrument works. Three of the most common level-measuring techniques involve using a displacer, float, or differential pressure instrument.
Here’s the catch.
While each of these instruments can be used to report a level reading, none of them actually measure level.
I know what you’re thinking…
If none of these instruments measure level, how do we end up with a level reading? Read the rest of this entry »

Yesterday and today, people all over Chicago and the Midwest were looking at pictures from last year. We had 22″ of snowfall in one day. The roads were closed. The airports were closed. Even the Lesman offices were closed. And today’s weather forecast? 45°… in Chicago… in February.
This morning in Pennsylvania, a groundhog named Phil came out, looked back, and saw… his shadow.
All this looking back made me a little reflective myself. I’ve been writing this blog for about 6 months now. So I thought I’d take a minute and recap the articles people keep coming back to read:
Since Lesman started focusing on level instrumentation 15 years ago, we’ve seen a lot of change. High-tech solutions bring higher accuracy, the ability to automatically eliminate tank obstructions for fewer false readings, the ability to measure level in almost any medium, and even send data from remote tank level systems to a control room miles away.
So is there still a need for more traditional, pneumatic systems, like air bubblers? Absolutely! And why? Because there are still applications where DP, capacitance, ultrasonic, and radar level systems just won’t work.
