Level Measurement for Chemical Tank on the Ship

Date: 2022-Mar-31


Marine pollution is a significant concern, and one of the sources of pollution in the oceans is from leaks and spills that occur during transportation activities at sea. These events can cause extensive damage to ecological resources and lead to the contamination of marine environments. Differs from the ballast tank, the main function of the ship that transport chemicals is to store and transport liquid cargo by closed compartment. Most of the liquid cargoes are flammable and explosive that some will emit a large amount of toxic and harmful gases and even poisonous gases.

In order to ensure the safety of the ship's operation, especially during the loading and unloading procedure, it is essential to prevent the liquid level from being too high to overflow which will cause fire or ocean pollution. Therefore, the key parameters on the ship must be monitored in real-time.

Level Measurement

Liquid cargo ships are typically loaded in a sealed manner, ensuring the containment of the cargo. Users can obtain relevant information regarding pressure, temperature, and liquid level within the tanks by analyzing data provided by sensors. This allows for monitoring and control of the cargo's conditions during transportation.

Choose a Pressure Sensor

1. Since the chemicals are highly corrosive, the sensor probe and cable should have strong corrosion resistance.

The MPM426TC level transmitter, produced by Micro Sensor, is fully stainless steel 316L constructed. It is sealed with a special sealing ring and is made of high temperature and corrosion-resistant Teflon cable.


2. According to the customer's requirements, select 4-20mA analog signal to simulate the liquid tank height.

3. Change the submersible type to the flange type to install and fix. The junction box is reserved which is convenient for installation and maintenance.
