Pumps in ballast water tanks

Monitoring of pump pressure in ballast water tanks

Process data

Measuring task:
Pressure monitoring
Measuring point:
Measuring range up to:
10 bar
Ballast water
Process temperature:
0 … +30 °C
Process pressure:
0 … +10 bar
Special challenges:
Mechanical stress caused by vibration on ships


Ballast water is taken on board seagoing vessels to ensure the stability of the ship when sailing with little or no cargo. The water is stored in ballast water tanks. To monitor the function of the pumps, appropriate pressure measurements are employed – pump failure can thus be detected immediately.
