New Tank Gauging System Has Modular Components- Literature Available

A new standardized marine tank gauging system, designed with modular, interchangeable, and plug-in components packed with marine gauging benefits, has been introduced by Metritape, Inc.

The new Metrimodule™ system features unique compact Metrimodule- digital displays—each providing level, temperature, and alarm indications plus operational controls for a single tank. Continuous tank ullage is displayed to the nearest centimeter, tenth foot, or inch, and product temperature in degrees C or F at the press of a button. Three adjustable audible and visual alarms are for high, overfill, and low levels.

Low alarm also monitors deck cables for open circuit.

Metrimodule-digital displays can be panel-box mounted in bowup tank plan pattern (up to 23 displays plus system control module), or recessed into an available console.

All major Metrimodule system components, including Metritape Level/Temp sensors, Multifunction- 4 circuit cards, intrinsic safety barriers and Metrimodule-digital displays are separate for each tank, interchangeable and plugin.

These standardized repeated elements assure most component failures will affect only one tank, and simplify service by shipboard personnel — maximizing system reliability.
