Calculating the volume of a partially filled horizontal cylindrical tank based on a liquid level is not that straight forward as when having a vertical cylindrical tank. The YDOC data loggers are provided with up to 8 calculation channels, which can a/o be used to calculate the volume of a horizontal cylindrical tank based on a measured liquid level.
A complete equation for measuring the volume of a horizontal cylindrical tank
The equation to calculate the volume in m³ is:
- :TR is the tank radius in m (You should substitute :TR with the radius of your tank or alternatively use another calculation channel returning the radius).
- :TL is the tank length in m (You should substitute :TL with the length of your tank).
- :LEV is the measured liquid height in m (e.g. measured with a liquid pressure probe).
