Depth of Knowledge – Measuring Depth

Depth of Knowledge – Measuring Depth

Brace yourself because this article’s about to get pretty deep.  When it comes to determining depth, accurate readings can be difficult to gauge because of so many different factors.  The medium being measured might be particularly dense.  There may be obstructions in the way.  The bottom of the container may not be consistently level.  For this reason, SRP Control offers a wide array of tools that are capable of measuring depths in a variety of ways for many different mediums.


The depth of powders, granulates, and other kinds of solids can be very difficult to determine because it’s not easy to dig into them without displacing a considerable amount of the material.  Traditional pulse radars aren’t always the most effective solution either.  The Krohne Optiwave 6300 Non-Contact Radar, however, gives a stable measurement, much more stable than the pulse radars in fact, and operates effectively in dusty conditions, which are common where measuring solids of this nature are concerned.  As long as conditions are observed closely, the device can also operate in very high and very low temperatures as well.


SRP Control offers a wide range of depth measuring devices that can be submerged in liquid.  Their durable, stainless steel design ensures that the product will be durable and long-lasting.  These are used for a variety of purposes including wells, irrigation systems, dams, sewage stations, rivers, lakes, and even oceanography.

Mud and Sludge

Sometimes you’re dealing with something that’s in between a solid and liquid.  Mediums such as mud and sludge can be very difficult to manage.  The Pulsar Sludge Finder 2 can be used with both waste water and other industrial applications that involve sludge.  The PMC Mud Level and Density Monitor can measure both fluid density and level for an extremely accurate reading.
