GL-300 Tank Monitoring System for Asphalt and Bitumen tankers consists of the GLA- 300/H Radar Tank Gauge, the GC-300 Cargo Temperature Unit and the GLK- 300 Signal Processing Unit.
The KONGSBERG Radar Tank Gauge, GLA- 300/H, is designed with a horn antenna using a PTFE plate to isolate the radar electronics from the tank atmosphere. In combination with a specially designed angular adapter, the Radar Tank Gauge avoids direct radiation heat from the cargo. This reduces the exposure to the high temperature and increases the life span of the electronics inside the GLA-300/H housing. 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.
The Radar Tank Gauge adapts to an angular adapter with inner diameter of 200 mm. The angular adapter shall be welded to the top of the tank, preferably as close to the centre of gravity of the tank as possible.
Optional 1" sounding plug is available on the inspection hatch of the adapter.
