The difference between a transparent surface gauge and a reflex level gauge
The reflex level gauge uses a prismatic groove as a means of reflecting light if there is liquid in the chamber. Transparent surface gauges, on the other hand, measure liquids only easily through flat glass. Both are widely used in offshore oil and gas projects, but which one will we use for each specific application
Transparent level gauge vs. reflex level gauge
In general, the transparent level gauge is used as the default option. This is because the transparent level gauge can do what the reflex level does, but vice versa. Transparent gauge measurements are best used in interface fluid as well as liquid that is colorless. If our liquid is colored, we recommend using a reflex gauge to return light to the viewer and darken the chamber. On the other hand, if dirty liquid is used, light will be reflected and it will not be easy to see the surface of the liquid. Reflex level measurement also cannot be used in the interface program because it cannot clearly identify two different liquids (it only changes to dark when the fluid fills the chamber)
Reflex level gauge
Transparent level gauge may use such as diesel + water level, process discharge + water and so on. Reflex level measurements may use MEG (monoethylene glycol), water level and so on
