The Chemtape gauging system is designed for monitoring above or below ground storage tanks that are at or near atmospheric pressure
The Chemtape gauging system is designed for monitoring above or below ground storage tanks that are at or near atmospheric pressure. Gauged products include general industrial chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and petrochemicals with temperatures up to 225°F.
The packaged system consists of the resistance-tape sensor in either Hastelloy C276 or Teflon, a compact filter assembly, a sensor housing and a two-wire 4-20mA current transmitter. It is available in overall lengths of 3 to 100 feet. The filter assembly protects the sensor from moisture and contaminates and provides pressure equalization. The stainless steel sensor housing mounts to a 3 inch flange. Excitation required is nominal 24VDC.
This system offers the option of one temperature detector and corresponding 4-20mA output for temperature monitoring. This system is not suitable for temperatures above 225°F, radioactive materials, chlorinated solvents or high vapor pressure materials.
