GL-300 Tank Monitoring System for Oil, Product and Chemical tankers consists of the GLA- 300/P Radar Tank Gauge, the GC-300 Cargo Temperature Unit and the GLK- 300 Signal Processing Unit.
The KONGSBERG Radar Tank Gauge, GLA- 300/P, is designed with an offset parabolic antenna where both the signal transmitter and the parabolic antenna is angled 45 degrees to allow for natural draining should condensation and deposits from the tank atmosphere occur. The Radar Tank Gauge introduces modern and flexible arrangements for simple installation. The tank pressure transmitter is fully integrated mechanically, electronically and cabling wise. The radar technology provides accurate measurement regardless of the atmospheric conditions inside the tank.
Tank pressure transmitter
The GT-450 tank pressure transmitter is fully integrated in the Radar Tank Gauge. The only installation work needed is connecting the cable to the terminal block, the rest is performed before delivery.
The GT-450 pressure transmitter is built around a dry, robust ceramic measurement capsule with internal capacitive sensing and with a ratiometric output. The ceramic capsule is "burned in" during the
manufacturing, giving a transmitter with very good long term behaviour.
The robust ceramic membrane gives the transmitter well over pressures properties.
The Radar Tank Gauge adapts to a Gauge Socket with inner diameter of 200 mm or larger. The Gauge Socket shall be welded to the top of the tank, preferably as close to the centre of gravity of the tank
Optional sounding plug requires a Gauge Socket diameter from 400 mm and above. Also if strict cleaning of tank equipment is essential, a larger diameter socket than 200 mm can be used.
