Cargo tanks on LNG carriers

Pressure, level and point level detection in Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) applications

Pressure, level and point level detection in Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) applications

Process data

Measuring task:
Level and pressure measurement, point level detection
Measuring point:
Measuring range up to:
40 m
Liquefied gas
Process temperature:
-20 … -196 °C
Process pressure:
0 … +5 bar
Special challenges:
Extremely low temperatures, low dielectric constants, low density, different products, ship approvals, Ex zone


Liquefied gas is transported in insulated cargo tanks on LNG carriers at temperatures of -196 °C. The instrumentation used must be specially designed for these extreme temperatures. Pressure, level and point level of LNG in the cargo tanks must be reliably measured for the transport.

Your benefit

Reliable and safe measurement in all media
Cost effective
Full utilization of the tank volume
User friendly
Simple planning and commissioning
