size, order/size order, ????

I have had this construction many times (in stats, engineering, etc). All it comes down to is basically, SIZE!

However, you refer to levles, so I don't know if you're referring to a liquid or what. the context would be useful, becuase 'order' may in fact refer to 'order', 'sequence'.

So compare these suggestions with your context.
