Pressure sensor exclusively designed for storage tanks

October 30, 2009

New pressure sensor with digital instrumentation is designed specifically for tank level control and indication. The remote digital read out lends itself to easy installation in flange outlets on storage tanks. Besides storage tanks, the pressure sensor is also ideal for handling raw sewage, paper stock, oil, water, chemicals, etc. The pressure sensor prevents the overflow of tanks. The digital instrumentation allows the operator to remotely control pumps filling tanks fully without spillage, increasing the total storage holding capacity of a tank or series of tanks. The sensors with digital instrumentation are now available in 2-inch through 12-inch flange mounting. This makes the direct mounting of gauges, pressure switches and transmitters possible for either digital reading or remote control. The pressure sensor can be battery-, loop- or voltage-powered. Digital accuracy brings a new level of control to pressure monitoring, pump control and digital input to your PLC, computer or system controller.
