AMETEK STC offers U.S. gauge models of level transmitters. The Model 575 intrinsically safe level transmitter and the Model DDMC meter/controller continuously monitor the fuel level in diesel storage tanks.
This level transmitter is placed in the liquid, and an optional conduit adapter is used in the tank to protect the cable. The Model DDMC meter is used to power the transmitter through approved electrical barriers. The DDMC also provides a continuous display of the level in the tank.
The Model 575 submersible level transmitter is a hydrostatic level product for quick, reliable level measurement. It comes standard with CSA Intrinsically Safe approvals for many different level monitoring needs including lifts stations, inventory tank measurement, ponds, lakes, rivers, landfills, reservoirs, or any type of water treatment facility including power plants, steel mills, mines, industrial chemical plants, refineries, and municipal water and wastewater treatment facilities.
It indicates level by continuously measuring hydrostatic level pressure via its sensing element and transmitted by a 4-20 mA signal. This design provides excellent linearity and repeatability, low hysteresis and long-term stability.
To install, simply lower the transmitter into the tank, well, or vessel. It has a measuring range of up to 690 ft, but can go in much deeper wells if needed, with thousands of ft of cable, as long as the actual measuring range is 690 ft or less.
