The Petrotape gauging system is designed for monitoring above or below ground storage tanks that are at or near atmospheric pressure
The Petrotape gauging system is designed for monitoring above or below ground storage tanks that are at or near atmospheric pressure. Gauged products include gasoline, fuel oils, crude oils, kerosene and diesel fuel with temperatures up to 225° F.
This packaged system consists of a Hastelloy jacketed resistance-tape sensor, a compact filter assembly, a sensor housing and a two-wire 4-20mA current transmitter. It is available in 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 adding one temperature detector and corresponding 4-20mA output for monitoring temperature. It is not suitable for temperatures above 225°F, radioactive materials, chlorinated solvents or high vapor pressure materials.
