Reliable Level Measurement for the Oil and Gas Industry

SAN LUIS OBISPO, USA – Within the oil and gas industry, reliable instrumentation is critical to maximize production. Tanks holding various fluids all need level instruments that are capable of withstanding harsh environments while still providing accurate information. Depending on what each tank contains, some of these instruments also need intrinsic safety ratings. Selecting the appropriate equipment is key to assuring accurate and reliable measurement of level to avoid spills and other potentially dangerous mistakes.

U.S. Gauge offers a broad selection of submersible level transducers on their webstore that are available for quick delivery. The offering includes intrinsically safe approved sensors for hazardous applications and general industrial units to measure clean water. Five different models are available for immediate delivery, from the low-cost SDT to the Intrinsically Safe Model 675 Shark Cage unit for applications in lift stations, sludge tanks, or process sumps. The Slimline SST is one of the few units on the market that has an outside diameter of less than 1" and is very lightweight, making it ideal for deep wells and small-bore applications.

U.S. Gauge sensors are configurable on their webstore, www.usgauge.com. Configuration options range from the output needed, feet or pressure range, to the type and length cable. Each unit is built to order and shipped from their plant in Horsham, PA, USA.
