Drexelbrook Enhances Communications Capabilities of Total Tank Level System

Friday, February 17, 2017

Drexelbrook has enhanced the communication capabilities of its Total Tank Level Measurement System to include Dual 4-20mA and Hart outputs in addition to the standard Modbus protocol for measuring total level, interface level and temperature.

The rugged and versatile level measurement system is an accurate, cost-effective alternative to flexible stainless steel cable probes. It incorporates proven magnetostrictive sensing technology and features multi-variable functionality. The system is accurate to 0.01% of measured span – less than 1mm absolute – over the full measurement range.

The Total Tank Level Measurement System’s intrinsically safe, explosion-proof design and all-welded construction make it an ideal choice for oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical storage tank and inventory control applications. Its five temperature sensors are evenly distributed over the active length of the polymer or stainless steel probe. The probe is available in a rigid 316 stainless steel version and in flexible PVDF in lengths up to 50 feet, an industry exclusive. 

The level measurement system meets FM, FMc, ATEX and IECEX hazardous area approvals and requires minimal maintenance. A variety of floats and mounting accessories are available to fit virtually any application. The probes are offered with a choice of mounting configurations.

Drexelbrook is an acknowledged leader in level measurement with more than 50 years of industry experience. It offers a full range of process level measurement solutions, including RF Admittance/Capacitance, TDR/Guided Wave Radar, Open Air Radar, Ultrasonic, Magnetostrictive, Hydrostatic, Vibration, Conductive and Float devices.

Drexelbrook level measurement instruments are used in a wide range of industries, including petroleum, chemical, petrochemical, food/beverage, water/wastewater, power, pharmaceutical, pulp/paper, mining, aggregates, feed/grain among others.
