# Open and Closed Tank Level Calculations

### Open tank : Level Transmitter installed at HP Tapping Point In above example, transmitter installed exactly at HP tapping point i.e. at 0 % Level

#### Calibration Range

LRV or 4mA point = 1.1 * 0 = 0 inH2O

URV or 20mA Point = Head = 1.1*50” = 55 inH2O

Cal. Range = 0 to 55 inH2O

### Open Tank : Level Transmitter Zero Scale above HP Tapping Point In above example, transmitter installed point and Tank Zero Percentage level are different.

#### Calibration Range

LRV or 4mA point = Head1 = 1.1*10” = 11 inH2O

URV or 20mA Point = Head2 = 1.1*50” = 55  inH2O

Cal. Range = 11 to 55 inH2O

### Open Tank : Level Transmitter Installed below HP Tapping Point #### Calibration Range

LRV or 4mA point = Head1 = 1.1*10” = 11 inH2O

URV or 20mA Point = Head1 + Head2 = (1.1*10”) + (1.1*50”) = 66 inH2O

Cal. Range = 11 to 66 inH2O

## Closed Tank Level Calculation (Wet Leg)

### Closed Tank : Level Transmitter installed at HP Tapping Point In above example, transmitter installed exactly at HP tapping point i.e. at 0 % Level

#### Calibration Range

LRV or 4mA point =  Phigh – Plow = 0 – Head1 = 0 – (1.2*70”) = -84”H2O

URV or 20mA Point = Phigh – Plow = Head2 – Head1 = (1.1*50”)] – (1.2*70”) = -29”H2O

Cal. Range = -84 to -29 inH2O

### Closed Tank : Level Transmitter Zero Scale above HP Tapping Point In above example, transmitter installed point and Tank Zero Percentage level are different.

#### Calibration Range

LRV or 4mA point = Phigh – Plow = Head2 – Head1 = (1.1*10”) – (1.2*70”) = -73”H2O

= [(1.1*10”) + (1.1*40”)] – (1.2*70”) = -29”H2O

Cal. Range = -73 to -29 inH2O

### Closed Tank : Level Transmitter Installed below HP Tapping Point #### Calibration Range

LRV or 4mA point = Phigh – Plow = Head2 – Head1 = (1.1*10”) – (1.2*80”) = -85”H2O

= [(1.1*10”) + (1.1*50”)] – (1.2*80”) = -30”H2O

Cal. Range = -85 to -30 inH2O

Easy Calculations & in Understandable way. Thanks Bharadwaj sir. May 20, 2016 at 6:57 am

Sir how to mount dot in for vaccum tank level measurement already we are using magnetic level gauge which works on magnetostrictive principle. June 1, 2016 at 4:45 am

Thank you this a simple calculation June 23, 2016 at 2:55 am

It’s really use full & simple calculations sir.Thank you very much sir. September 10, 2017 at 6:03 am

I am so happy finding this learning web site. Suggested to my friends as well. Using daily to improve my skills. Thanks for this web site creator. November 27, 2019 at 5:33 pm

We have two articles one about zero elevation suppression and one about URV and LRV calibration range. M question is in calibration range we need to include the pressure head in HP tapping or remove? same for suppression. February 23, 2020 at 10:57 pm
