How Do Liquid Level Gauges Work?

Liquid level gauges are measuring instruments used to measure fluid levels in tanks and barrels.

These are made up of two parts, known as the ‘Upper’ and ‘Lower’ fitting which is used with 19.05mm polycarbonate or borosilicate glass tube.

This tube is friction fitted between the two fittings into a silicone seal at the outlets, allowing fluid to flow into the tube. Each unit has a stainless steel retaining nut that secures the tube and 25.4-38.1m Tri Clover ferruled connections that secure to the tank.

As the name suggests, liquid levels of tanks or barrels can be gauged by positioning the Upper Gauge at the top of the tank and the Lower Gauge near the bottom, allowing an external view of the liquid level within.

Each fitting has a tap to stop the flow of liquid if the tube needs repairing or replacing. The lower fitting also has a hosetail and extra function which allows the liquid in the tube to be drained if not in use.

The individual gauges are able to withstand a maximum pressure of 145 PSI (10 Bar); however, this may be less depending on the glass tube handling pressure.

FlexiFlow: Stainless Steel Braided Flexible Hose 

The Metal Company stock both PTFE and stainless steel convoluted flexible braided hoses. We hold these in stock ready for dispatch over night. Because of their flexibility these hoses are great for reducing mechanical vibration, compensating for expansion and contraction or misalignment of pipework.

RapidPress Deburrer Tool | RapidPress Rundown

The RapidPress Deburrer Tool is designed for use on RapidPress tube from 15-54mm but can also be used on other stainless tubes or pipes. Watch Patrick discuss what the deburrer tool is and how to use it.

RapidPress Rotary Tube Cutter | RapidPress Rundown

The RapidPress rotary tube cutter is our preferred method of cutting tubes from 15mm – 76mm as it leaves a burr free edge on the external of the tube. Watch Patrick discuss how to use this tool.

RapidPress Expansion Bellows | RapidPress Rundown

When pipelines are heated or cooled it can cause them to expand or contract in length. If this is not compensated for it can put extreme pressure on welds or pressed joints resulting in failure. Watch Patrick discuss our RapidPress Expansion Bellows.
