level transmitters are ideal for small tanks and containers
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.
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
