Floating roofs are used on storage tanks to minimize vapor space between the top of the tank and the level of the liquid, typically a petroleum-based product, inside the tank. Per the External floating roof tank Wikipedia entry: The roof rises and falls with the liquid level in the tank. As opposed to a fixed […]

Accurately measuring levels in vessels is important in many aspects—safety, efficiency, reliability and availability to name a few. Mechanical level measurement devices historically have been failure prone and have required regular maintenance. Guided wave radar (GWR) technology avoids the problems with associated with mechanical devices, but is affected by obstructions in the vessel such as […]
