UTS™ - Ultrasonic Tank Switch

Designed for the harsh environment in tank and pipeline installations UTS™ provides correct data for constant liquid level control including indication of the top and bottom levels as well as monitoring of pumps. Protection of pumps and prevention of spillage is obtained with a high level of efficiency. UTS™ can operate and provide accurate measurements in any liquid, in extreme temperatures and in any shape of tank.

The operating principle of UTS™ is based on a breakthrough patented acoustic wave technology, providing outstanding results in extreme operating temperatures ranging from –200°C to +450°C. Accuracy of measurement is ensured regardless of shape of tank, type of liquid or liquid temperature.

UTS™ is installed outside the tank/pipe with only a metal rod inside the tank/pipe. Acoustic waves in the metal rod created by piezo-electric transducer ensure transmission of signals. When liquid in the tank reaches the probe on the rod, the emission of sound waves is muffled. This change is picked up by the piezo-electric transducer and a signal is transmitted to the corresponding alarm. Having only the metal rod inside the tank and no mechanical or moving parts means no maintenance is required.

UTS™ can be easily installed in vertical, horizontal or any inclined position and is tested for operation in a wide range of media, such as water, oil, petroleum, petrochemicals, acids, wastewater as well as many others. Made of high-grade stainless steel, UTS™ can also be used in tanks and reservoirs with food products.

UTS™ can be installed indoors as well as outdoors, including explosive environments and harsh arctic conditions.

Universal liquid level switch UTS™ is characterized by high resistance to sticky products, reliability under dynamic load and vibrations due to reinforced rod.
