Measurement of level, point level and pressure in the cargo tanks on board

Process data

Measuring task:
Level measurement, point level detection, pressure measurement
Measuring point:

Changing media, aggressive chemicals, tank


The levels in storage tanks, especially those on board chemical tankers must be continuously measured. This is especially important to monitor during loading and unloading operations, because of strict safety and environmental requirements. Any overfilling or product discharge on deck or into the sea could have devastating consequences for human life as well as the wider environment. Also, to prevent damage to the tanks caused via external temperature fluctuations, or overpressure and underpressure created by charging and discharging procedures, the internal tank pressures require continuous monitoring.

Your benefit

Precise measurement regardless of the medium
Cost effective
Multi-sensor flange reduces costs in planning and commissioning
User friendly
Simple installation of the radar, pressure and high level alarm sensors in one multi-sensor flange
