Ballast water tanks

Level measurement in the forepeak, wing and double bottom tanks with ballast water

Level measurement in the forepeak, wing and double bottom tanks with ballast water

Process data

Measuring task:
Level measurement
Measuring point:
Forepeak, wing and double bottom tank
Measuring range up to:
15 m
Medium:
Salt/fresh water
Process temperature:
0 ... +30 °C
Process pressure:
0 … 0 bar
Special challenges:
Pressure surges, abrasion, aggressive saltwater, ship approvals

Application

The ballast water measurements in the wing and double bottom tanks go directly into the control system for the ship trim, draught and list. Since these measuring points are virtually inaccessible during operation on board, reliability and stability are an absolute must. Pressure shocks, abrasive sand particles and seawater place additional heavy demands on the instrumentation.

Your benefit

Reliable
Exact level measurement in abrasive and aggressive seawater
Cost effective
Low installation and integration costs
User friendly
Maintenance-free operation due to seawater resistant materials
