The Institute of Technical Acoustics offers consumers a capacitive-type fuel volume sensor, modification of sensors for specific customer tasks in accordance with technical specifications, under a manufacturing agreement, and is looking for partners interested in a distribution services agreement.
In terms of the totality of technical characteristics, the fuel volume sensor is at the level of the best foreign analogues at a significantly lower cost. Capacitive-type fuel volume sensors coupled with external information display and signaling devices have not previously been produced in the Republic of Belarus.

The calculation of a model of a measuring capacitor with electrodes of different lengths was carried out, which made it possible to establish the nature of the field distribution at the ends of the capacitor outside the interelectrode gap. It was found that the main reason for the difference between the calculated and measured values of the sensor capacities is the misalignment of the electrode shells, as well as their shape and variations of these parameters along the length of the sensor.

Additional information is posted in the Album of promising developments of organizations of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus for the real sector of the economy (in Russian).

Advantages and Innovations
The design of a two-channel fuel volume sensor has been developed, which makes it possible to control dielectric properties, to assess the grade of fuel that does not require calibration.

The competitiveness of the development is ensured by full compliance with the technical requirements of the consumer and a competitive price. The advantages of a fuel volume sensor are the ability to control quality fuel, reducing its supply, deteriorating the quality of fuel atomization. Simultaneous monitoring of the fuel level and its quality makes it possible to increase safety through early detection of disturbances in the mixture formation process.

Additional comments
The Institute of Technical Acoustics is a leading organization in the field of new directions in the physics and technology of ultrasound and the scientific foundations of the use of high-power ultrasound in technological processes of materials processing.

At the present stage, the activities of the Institute correspond to the priority areas of scientific, technical and socio-economic development of the country and the Vitebsk region. The Institute conducts fundamental and applied research, and also carries out scientific and technical developments within the framework of state scientific research programs (GPNI), regional scientific and technical program (RSTP), republican and international projects of the Belarusian Foundation for Basic Research (BRFFR), individual projects and grants in fields of semiconductor physics, magnetoelectric phenomena, ultrasonic vibrations, thermoelastic phase transformations, etc.

Scientific areas of activity of the Institute:
- study of the impact of concentrated energy flows on condensed media and physical processes;
- development of methods and technologies for obtaining materials for functional and special purposes.

A branch of the Republican Center for Technology Transfer has been created at the State Scientific Institution “Institute of Technical Acoustics of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus”, the main activities of which are:
- support for innovation and technology transfer in the field of using concentrated energy flows (ultrasound, laser radiation, high-frequency electromagnetic fields, ion-plasma flows, high-temperature synthesis) on the structure and properties of condensed matter; synthesis of new composite, structural and ceramic materials with specified physical and mechanical properties in an ultrasonic field; processing of metals using thermal methods, pressure and powerful ultrasound; development of new instruments and equipment, creation of new information technologies;
- promoting the development of innovative entrepreneurship and the expansion of international partnerships in the field of innovation and scientific developments;
- providing assistance in the implementation of state policy in the field of small and medium-sized innovative businesses in the creation of new technologies, the development of new devices and equipment.

The Republican Center for Ultrasound Technologies, which is an interdisciplinary scientific and technical center (cluster) for advanced scientific research, has been created at the State Scientific Institution “Institute of Technical Acoustics of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus”. The center was created with the aim of developing new highly efficient processes and devices for processing materials, creating new functional materials to improve the quality of products, reduce costs and increase the level of safety of production using high-power ultrasound. The expected scientific results of the center’s work are aimed at obtaining new scientific knowledge about the influence of acoustic influences on:
- structure formation and properties of materials;
- technological processes;
- thermoelastic phase transformations in materials with shape memory.

The expected practical results are aimed at mastering new technologies and developing unique equipment with high export potential.
