Glass Tube Level Indicator for Direct Column & Tank Liquid Level Measurement

Glass tube level indicators of different sizes
Threaded & flange connection

Glass tube level indicator is a direct reading measuring meter, featuring simple structure, direct-reading, reliable, durable, etc. It is widely used to measure the liquid level of various tanks, columns, boxes and other containers. However, the media in the container shall not corrode steel, vulcanized paper and graphite ring. It is equipped with a steel ball in upper and lower valves. When the glass tube accidentally broken, the steel ball will block the channel under the pressure inside the vessel. In this way, the vessel achieves automatically seal to prevent the liquid inside the vessel from flowing out.

Working Principle

The working principle of glass tube level indicator installed on the tank.
Working Principle

The glass tube level indicator is designed based on the principle of the connector. When the liquid in the tank and the glass tube form a liquid path, the liquid in the tank will flow towards the glass tube under the influence of air pressure until the two sides remain at the same level. At this time, the liquid level observed from the glass tube is the same as the liquid level in the tank, that is, the height of liquid.
