How To Choose The Right Capacitance Level Transmitter For Your Industry

Capacitance Level Transmitter

When you’re ready to install a Capacitance Level Transmitter (CLT) in your business, you want to make sure that you purchase the best possible device for your needs. With so many different models and types on the market, how can you safeguard your purchase and ensure that you’re getting the most for your money?

Here are the 4 primary factors you need to keep in mind when you’re ready to buy a CLT:

  • The Nature of The Material You Need to Measure:

The first thing that you need to consider is what type of material will be flowing through your pipe or tube. You can use capacitance level measurement to measure liquids or gases, but each type requires different specifications.

For example, liquid CLTs must be able to withstand  high pressures, while gas CLTs must allow gases to flow through them without leaking out.

When choosing your CLT model, think about what kind of material will be flowing through it and make sure that it has been tested successfully with the same material before buying it.

  • The Accuracy You Need:

When it comes to purchasing a CLT, two main factors will determine its accuracy: range and resolution. The range refers to how much distance exists between the transmitter and receiver, while resolution refers to how many bits of information can be transmitted per second. The higher both of these values are, the more accurate your readings will be.

  • The Range of The Device:

The range refers to how much distance exists between the transmitter and receiver (usually measured in feet). The longer this distance is, the more accurate your readings will be because there is less chance that they will be affected by outside forces like temperature change or vibration. It also means that less power is required from either source, as well as less maintenance over time as fewer moving parts are involved in calculating data points.

  • The Installation Process:

The installation process is another thing to consider when making a decision about which CLT to buy. There are three main types of installation methods: direct immersion, direct immersion with external sensors, and remote mounting. Each has its own benefits and drawbacks, so be sure to read up on them before deciding on a particular model.


By keeping these five factors at the forefront of your mind, you can be sure that you’re choosing the right Capacitance Level Transmitter for your business.
