Fluids Issue with Tanks

Solution Partner Pioneer Solution Partner Pioneer

Hello,

 

I am working on a model that includes the Fluids library. I am trying to create a system of tanks that fill one mixer. The problem that I am having is that all of my tanks that fill the mixer are constantly at 100% Fill level while the mixer fluctuates from 0-75. I want the tanks to endure the same process of fluctuation but i do not understand enough about the Fluids library to make my idea into reality.

 

Do you know of any way that i can achieve this functionality with the Tank objects?

 

Thank you!

I guess you need to lock the entrance of the tanks after filling it. Otherwise the fluid source will refill the tank in the same moment the mixer is filled. You can try an observer method for "full" or you include a sensor in the tank.
For refilling you can also use a sensor (just lock the exit after unloading the tank and unlock the entrance).
