Liquid Level Detection in a Tank Using Ultrasonic Waves

Here you find the details for the internship named "Liquid Level Detection in a Tank Using Ultrasonic Waves" in the company Plastic Omnium.

Details
Name: Liquid Level Detection in a Tank Using Ultrasonic Waves
Company: Plastic Omnium
Description:

The goal of this project is to detect the presence of a water based liquid in a vertically mounted stainless steel tank. The tank is heated to evaporate the liquid in the tank and the tank output is the vapor. A valve is controlling the flow of the vapor and keeps the tank pressurized. The liquid is fed from the bottom of the tank using a pump. There should be a minimum volume of the liquid in the tank to maintain a constant supply of vapor. This is the reason why a sensor is needed to detect the presence of the liquid in the tank at a certain level.
Invasive level sensing techniques such as using a float are strictly prohibited for this project. Therefore the sensor has to detect the presence of the liquid from outside of the tank. One solution is to detect the presence of the liquid based on ultrasound waves.
