Submersible pressure sensors

Submersible pressure sensors from WIKA - market leader since 1946

The submersible pressure sensor is a special type of pressure sensor for hydrostatic level measurement in tanks, wells, shafts and bore holes. For this, the submersible pressure sensor is submerged directly in the liquid to be measured, and positioned as close as possible to the bottom. There, the submersible pressure sensor measures the hydrostatic pressure, which enables a direct conclusion regarding the current level, i.e. the height of the liquid column above it.
FAQ
FAQ

How is the filling level measured using the level probe?

The sensor element of the level probe measures the hydrostatic pressure of the liquid column above it. The rule of thumb is that 1 m water column corresponds to approx. 100 mbar.

Can each pressure transmitter measure any medium?

No, the materials stated in the data sheet are to be checked by the customer for resistance.
