Electro-Pneumatic Tank Level and Ship Draft Measurement

The electro-pneumatic systems provide reliable and accurate continuous on-line information on actual tank levels, possible water ingress and ship’s draft. Every tank, hold/ void space and draft measurement has its own dedicated sensor. All sensors are located in cabinets in a safe area.
Two main methods are being used to measure hydrostatic pressure:
Sounding pipe — used in tanks where bubbling air is fed into the tanks, or Pneumatic 1:1 pressure converter — used where air fed into the tanks is prohibited, such as in drinking water tanks.
