What is a Tank Strapping Chart?

tank level measurementWhen volume is a concern, your tank might just come with a strapping chart. But what exactly is a tank strapping chart? A tank strapping chart tells you the volume of liquid that is in your tank at a specific level. For example, when your tank has a level reading of 5 inches, you may have 5 gallons of liquid, and at 8.5 inches, you may have 10 gallons. A tank strapping chart helps you easily and quickly convert these levels of measurement into volumes. This is especially useful for non-linear tanks.

You might also hear a tank strapping chart being called a tank calibration chart, strapping table or other names. No matter what it is called, a tank strapping chart is an invaluable tool for ensuring your level measurements are accurate.
