Non-contact level gauge guide released

April 11, 2005


pitzer and Boyes, LLC and The Instrumentation, Systems and Automation Society (ISA) have announced the release of The Consumer Guide to Non-Contact Level Gauges. The book, by David W. Spitzer and Walt Boyes, provides insights into the advantages and disadvantages of non-contact level gauge technologies (ultrasonic, laser and radar).

Did you know that the 60+ suppliers of non-contact level gauges (ultrasonic, laser and radar) describe level gauge performance in about 30 different ways?  As a result, it is difficult (if not impossible) for users to compare and contrast the performance of non-contact gauges when making purchasing decisions.  You can read The Consumer Guide to Non-Contact Level Gauges to learn how to sort this out. 

The guide includes listings by tank height, performance, supplier, and model, and is written specifically for designers, engineers, owners and end-users of level measurement systems. The guide can be used to measure trends in level measurement developments and to help decide which level gauge is most applicable for their applications. The book is available from Spitzer and Boyes, LLC and through the .

Chip Lee, Director of ISA, commented, “This is another very important book, and I am very pleased that we will be able to offer it in this series that previously included books about flowmeters and fieldbus.”

David W. Spitzer is a recognized measurement expert and author of Industrial Flow Measurement and five other books in this series. Walt Boyes is the editor of the Instrumentation Reference Book. Spitzer and Boyes specializes in providing engineering, market research, and related consulting services to instrumentation users, manufacturers, and representatives on a worldwide basis.
