Digital Probes

Inventory & Leak Detection

Digital inventory and leak detection probes provide accurate tank level monitoring and reporting with optional leak detection capabilities. These probes employ digital magnetostrictive position measurement technology for highly accurate tank readings.

    Mitigate Static Friction

    With any probe, naturally occurring static friction between the float and the probe shaft can cause the float to remain in place when the product level drops and even when it rises.Our digital probes feature a unique and innovative vibration motor mounted inside the probe head. Every 5 minutes, the vibration motor automatically pulses. This frees the floats from any static friction with the probe shaft and mitigates the negative effects static friction can have on level readings or leak detection accuracy.


     

    Bottom Mount Installation

    With no hanging installation kit needed, the probe can simply be placed in the tank riser and rested on the tank bottom.


     

    Faster Setup

    The probe automatically sends important setup data to the tank gauge eliminating manual input by technicians. This data includes:

    • Gradient
    • Probe type
    • Length
    • Serial number

     

    Additional Features

    • Models available for inventory control or inventory control with leak detection.
    • Capable of precise leak detection, density measurement, and inventory monitoring.
    • Suitable for use with gasoline, diesel, DEF/AdBlue®, and other manufacturer approved products.
    • Bottom mounted installation for fast and simple install.
    • Vibration motor integrated into probe head pulses every 5 minutes to reduce the effects of stiction on level reading and leak detection, providing readings with higher accuracy.
    • Screw-in electrical connector provides quick installation or removal, eliminating the need to re-splice wires.
    • Highly accurate digital communication between the probe and the tank gauge.
    • Probes are available in many sizes that are suitable for all common tanks.
    • Easily installed into 2”, 3” or 4” riser pipes.

    Applications

    Digital probes feature exceptional linearity, resolution, and stability, and are used in underground and aboveground storage tanks. Two types of probes are available for the following applications:

    • The leak detection probes are typically used for underground storage tanks and petroleum applications when static or SCALD leak detection is required.
    • The inventory control probes are typically used for aboveground storage tanks, chemical or oil waste, or underground storage tanks that do not require in-tank leak detection.

    Components

    • 1. Probe head
    • 2. Guides
    • 3. Bottom mount fitting
    • 4. Probe shaft
    • 5. Product float
    • 6. 2” or 4” gas, diesel or phase separation water floats
    • 7. Precision or standard density float
    • 8. LPG float
    • 9. Chemical float
    • Note: All float kits sold separately.

    Operation

    An electromagnetic field is created inside the probe head and forms around a long waveguide within the probe shaft when position measurements are taken. The electromagnetic field interacts with the magnetic field of the float(s) and produces a shock wave in the waveguide that travels at a known speed. When the shock wave is detected at the probe head, the probe creates a signal that corresponds precisely to the product level. Product expansion calculations are enabled by temperature sensors that are located at various points in the probe shaft.
