Are bubbler systems still viable for measuring liquid level? Yes, they are. And Lesman can build one for you.
A bubbler system in an accurate and still inexpensive way to measure the fluid level in open or vented containers. A complete bubbler level measurement system consists of a source of compressed air, an air flow restrictor, sensing tube, and pressure transmitter. And the Lesman bubbler system comes complete, wired, and ready to drop directly into your applcation.
Air bubbler systems contain no moving parts, making them suitable for measuring the level of water, viscous fluids, liquids with large quantities of suspended solids, slurries, sewage, drainage water and sludge. The only part of the sensor that contacts the liquid is a dip tube that is chemically compatible with the material being measured. Since the point of measurement has no electrical components, the technique is a good choice for most fluids and especially good for fluids classified as hazardous.
What makes the bubbler more safe is that the system controls are located outside the tank in a separate enclosure with only the pneumatic plumbing running to the tank, isolating the hazardous from the safe area.
