The importance of level measurement cannot be overstated. Incorrect or inappropriate measurements can cause levels in vessels to be excessively higher or lower than their measured values. Low levels can cause problems and damage equipment, while high levels can cause overflow and potentially create safety and environmental problems. When working in industrial settings, getting accurate level measurements saves time and money, and optimizes the performance of your plant and its processes.
