Calibration of big tanks

Topic: Calibration of big tanks

Fuel level sensors can be used for remote fuel volume monitoring of fuel tankers and fuel storages. Tank calibration by fuel portions is a big headache because you need to refill a large amount of fuel.

We've made 2 simple online calculators of tank calibration tables - for horizontal cylinder and for horizontal cylinder with ellyptic sides  (like fuel tanker).

for horizontal cylinder:

for horizontal cylinder with ellyptic sides

As result, you will get a file with tank calibration table. It is for our Eurosens Dominator fuel level sensor, but you can easily convert it in any other format.

Remember that it is simplified method, accuracy will be affected because real tank shape is not "perfect".

Re: Calibration of big tanks

And if tank have an inclination and sensor is not installed into the middle the table work ?

Not, of course.  smile

Great idea man thanks keep it up all the time. am very happy to see your standard.

Re: Calibration of big tanks

Another calibration solution is using existing tank calibration table.

For example normally customer can provide tank calibration tables for tanker trucks. They have level-volume format. (see attachment)

All we have to do is recalculate height into sensor value.

And we have online calculator to do so  - for Eurosens Dominator fuel level sensors
