Application

Floating drilling or pumping assets such as platforms or FPSOs are stabilized by filling or emptying ballast tanks with seawater. This enables operators to critically and safely manage the ballast and trim of a vessel according to operational needs, deck loading and sea conditions. For trouble-free operation of the ballast system and the safety of personnel and equipment on board, reliable level measurement and point level detection are absolutely essential.
