VesselCheck ST1AD Non-Invasive Level Gauge - 1

Level Measurement VesselCheck ST1AD Non-Invasive Level Gauge Data sheet : ST1AD/2012 Processor / Display Unit Background Rototherm Canongate Technology has been using ultrasound technology in a variety of applications for over twenty years. VesselCheck is used by most of the leading beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical companies around the world for accurate, reliable, simple and safe tank contents gauging. This particular configuration has been specifically designed to meet requirements on LPG vessels. A number of leading LPG suppliers and users are already using our technology to provide reliable level measurement. Principle of Operation A small ultrasonic sensor is bonded to the outside base of the vessel. Signals from the transceiver are fed into the processor, displayed beside the tank and/or output to a separate system. The ST1AD transmitter measures the time for the transmitted ultrasonic signal to return from the liquid surface. It applies ambient temperature compensation to that value and uses it to accurately calculate the height of the liquid in the tank. The package is supplied as a sensor / processor pair. Truly non-invasive sensing technique Transceiver bonds to outside of tank shell Ambient temperature compensated (temperature measurement in display unit) 0..5v / 4…20mA Analogue Output Approved for hazardous areas (flameproof Exd) No tank break-in - Easy installation No down-time during installation Suitable for tanks of most shapes and materials Not affected by pressure No moving parts – no maintenance Low cost & reliable tank gauging ATEX Sensor shown Excellence the World can Measure
