Submersible gauging level transmitters are ideal for small tanks and containers

Posted: Friday 31st August 2012

A range of submersible tank gauging level transmitters for small tanks and containers is now available in the UK from instrumentation specialist Impress Sensors & Systems Ltd.

Manufactured in the UK by Impress Sensors, the new IMTG range of transmitters is designed for continuous submersion in liquids such as water, oils and fuels. The transmitters are ideally suited to applications in small (0 to 10 metre depth) tanks or containers, where conventional mechanical level switches and sensors are not suitable because of reliability issues and a higher degree of level ‘control’ and measurement is required. WRAS-approved versions of the transmitter are also available for drinking water applications. Typical applications include measurements of static tank level, container or chamber level, and vehicle tank level.

The IMTG transmitters use a piezoresistive, silicon pressure sensing technology and a stainless steel diaphragm, which provide excellent stability, repeatability and resolution. The sensor housing is made from stainless steel, making it ideal for reliable, repeatable hydrostatic level measurement. The sensors are available in nominal pressure ranges from 0.5mWG to 10mWG. An optional self-flushing nose cone is also available.

All IMTG sensors are temperature-compensated, calibrated and supplied with a traceable serial number and calibration certificate. Operating (media) temperatures are from -20 deg C to +60 deg C in non-freezing media. Cable material is either PVC, PUR, FEP or TPE, enabling compatibility with any media.

Sam Drury, Sales & Marketing Director at Impress Sensors & Systems comments: “As well as the standard options that we offer on the IMTG, we can also custom engineer the sensors for specific applications to suit the application requirements. Customers can choose from a wide range of sensor options, including pressure ranges and engineering units, output types, cable lengths, cable materials, O-ring seal materials, static accuracy and thermal accuracy. WRAS-approved versions of the sensor are also available for water industry customers.”
