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.

The Difference Between Ultrasonic and Radar Level Sensors

Both radar and ultrasonic sensors transmit wavesThere is a tendency, at least in the industrial media, to put Ultrasonic and Radar level measurement technology in the same hat. Even though many people use the terms interchangeably, the two technologies are quite different.

So, at the risk of sounding a bit nit-picky, we feel that defining the differences between ultrasonic and radar sensors is important, as it affects how sensors are selected and applied. In this blog, we will look at ultrasonic vs. radar sensors and explain the difference between the two level transmitter types.

Three Reasons the FS-500 is the Only All-Purpose Horizontal Float Switch You Need

The FS-500 is a great fit for food prep and storage applicationsA couple of weeks ago we released our new, side-mount, stainless steel float switches, the FS-500s. They are designed and built here at our facility in Logan, Utah for long-lasting dependability in tough environments. And because you, our customers, use float switches in a wide variety of places to monitor many different liquids, we designed the FS-500 to be tough enough and versatile enough to be the only go-anywhere, use-everywhere horizontal float switch you need.
