Keywords:Morgan Advanced Materials? sensor? fluid level sensing?

An ultrasonic sensor capable of continuously detecting fluid levels and the location of objects within them has been launched by Morgan Advanced Materials. The sensor can be used for static and live fluid level sensing for multiple market sectors, including transportation, medical, chemical and industrial.

The company's latest sensor has been developed in response to customers requiring increasingly precise means of recording fluid levels and identifying objects within fluids. It can allow measurements to be accurately taken in a variety of fluids with different viscosities and opacities, such as fuel, oil, blood and water.

Hermetically sealed to deliver exceptional reliability, the sensor is able to function in even the harshest and most demanding of environments. It has been developed to withstand attack from hot and cold water, petroleum, kerosene, jet fuel, oils and alcohol.

The device operates by transmitting an ultrasonic wave through the fluid, which is then reflected back from the surface of the fluid or the object. The time that the ultrasonic wave takes to reach its destination and return enables the sensor to calculate the fluid level or distance of an object within the liquid. Capable of being mounted in any orientation as long as its front face is in contact with the fluid, the sensor can be fully immersed without sustaining damage.
