The 7 steps below outline the simple testing process for the Portalevel® MAX. Further technical support is available to all users for the lifetime of the equipment if required.
Attach the sensor to the main Portalevel® MAX, switch the unit on and ensure the “Battery Low” Indication is not showing.
Depending on the condition of the cylinder, some couplet may need to be applied to the side of the cylinder; this could be in the form of Water spray, Ultrasonic Gel or an Oil&Water mix depending on what is easily accessible. This is not always essential and they all accomplish the required results.
Place the senor towards the top of the cylinder and engage the “CAL” feature. This will set the unit to that particular cylinder, catering for the material thickness, paint or surface covering.
When engaging the “CAL” feature, the Bar Graph on the screen will extend all the way to the right and the numbers will read high values.
The user should then move the sensor down the cylinder in small steps, making sure not to drag the sensor down the cylinder face.
When the sensor passes the level mark, the numbers will drop dramatically and the Bar graph will reduce all the way to the left. It is this change in display readings, which identifies the difference between Air (above Level) and Liquid (below Level) in a cylinder.
Through moving the sensor up in smaller steps, one can accurately pinpoint the exact liquid level location.
