Industrial tank systems play a key role in industrial applications, for instance in the pharmaceutical industry, food processing, water purification systems, chemical industry, etc. Currently, there are various level measurement technologies available in the market such as ultrasonic level sensor, microwave sensor, capacitance level sensor, etc. One of the commonly used technologies in such tank systems is liquid level controller, which is used to ensure the supply of liquid is at a constant rate or ensures that the level of liquid is maintained at the required level.
Microcontroller unit designs are used to quantify and control the level of liquid perfectly, which helps in improving the efficacy of motor pumping units. To develop a liquid level controller system, a starter kit is provided by the system vendor to control the motor or pumping unit, a constant fluid level sensor is used to measure the liquid level by means of a LED display circuit, and a temperature sensor is used to maintain a constant temperature of liquid inside the tank.

The liquid level controller helps with level indication, level control, and alarm. In a liquid level indicator, three LEDs are used to indicate the level of liquid (low, medium, and high). The level controller helps to automatically switch a pump and/or a valve to on/off, to maintain the preset level of the liquid. Besides, an alarm signal is available to indicate dry or wet condition of the tank which means that the liquid level controller identifies the level of liquid when it touches the maximum or minimum limit. The system controls actuation of valves or pumps to normalize liquid levels. The liquid level controller demonstrates functions such as level monitoring for conductive and non-conductive liquids, one or dual level monitoring, and single or dual tank level monitoring.
Wastage of liquid could be hazardous at times if it is an industrial liquid i.e. a petroleum product that could pose a major risk to the vicinity. Water wastage poses a challenge to water conservation efforts, making it mandatory to deploy the technology to reduce wastage. The use of automatic liquid level controllers eliminates wastage and limits the power usage. This domino effect comes in the form of monetary benefits as well as energy savings, which is a major factor driving the growth of the automatic liquid level controller market.
The global liquid level controller market can be categorized based on level sensors, applications, end-user industry, and region. On the basis of level sensors, the liquid level controller market can be categorized into contact type sensors and non-contact type sensors. The liquid level controller market is undergoing a transition from contact type sensors to non-contact type sensors due to their accuracy, flexibility in measurement, and low maintenance. In terms of applications, the liquid level controller market can be bifurcated into wastewater treatments, chemically pure water, pump stations, wet well and tank level controlling applications. In terms of end-user industry, the liquid level controller market can be segregated into nuclear power generation, oil & gas, and power generation.
