The UTI detector is a portable liquid level gauge that is commonly used in the shipping industry to measure the amount of hydrocarbons and chemicals in a ship’s tank. This device includes a sensor probe, measurement tape, display unit, and winding drum. Its primary purpose is to determine the temperature and oil-water interface on tankers by attaching the sensor probe to the measurement tape, which can vary in length from 15m to 40m. Manufacturers offer a temperature range between -40°C and 110°C. All UTI meters have earth grounding capabilities for safety purposes.

The sensing component of the UTI detector is a Platinum Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD). This element is situated in the temperature electrode that is filled with a heat transfer compound paste to hasten the latency. After digitizing the RTD element signal, the micro-controller in the sensor probe corrects and compensates for any errors. The RTD element’s attributes are saved in the sensor memory and are exclusively for that sensor, so a new calibration is not required when replacing the sensor. The micro-controller sends the data to the Display Unit that can be read by the technician.

The operating principle for oil-water interface level detection of the UTI detector involves measuring conductivity between an active electrode and a grounded electrode. When the liquid measured is conductive (e.g., water), the ullage sensor detects its existence. Afterwards, the conductivity electrodes and their related electronic circuits modify the coded signal generating an intermittent beep sound.
