Special challenges
Extremely low temperatures, low dielectric constants, low density, different products, ship approvals, Ex zone

Application

Liquefied gas is transported in insulated cargo tanks on LNG carriers at temperatures between -20 °C and -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.
