The hydrostatic paradox describes the apparent phenomenon that the pressure prevailing at the bottom of a container filled with liquid does not depend on the shape of the container, and therefore does not depend on its capacity. Instead it depends solely on the level height.
The mounting position of the sensor membrane also does not play a role when it comes to hydrostatic measurements. The pressure acts in all directions at any altitude. A pressure transmitter can be mounted on the side of the tank or suspended inside the tank as a level probe. The only decisive factor for the measurement result is the mounting height – the measurement is only performed once the membrane is fully covered.
