Title: Apparatus and method for measuring level

Abstract

A vessel with a cavity for measuring level is disclosed. The vessel includes a differential pressure sensor having a first port and a second port, a reference tube that connects the first port of the differential pressure sensor to a bottom portion of the cavity, and an impulse tube that connects the second port of the differential pressure sensor to an impulse tube ending. At least a portion of the impulse tube extends through the cavity and ends at a fluid inlet. The fluid inlet is located at a level above the reference tube.
