Simplified hazardous materials monitoring

Oilfield Technology,

Thermo Scientific have released two new gauges, the Thermo Scientific LevelPRO and Thermo Scientific DensityPRO, which are designed to offer highly precise non-contact density and level measurements of process materials in the most challenging industrial conditions.

The gauges use a smaller nuclear source, approximately 50% smaller than the previous generation of gamma ray gauges, and therefore require less lead shielding and have a significantly lower overall cost of ownership.

Both the LevelPRO and DensityPRO are certified by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for safe operation in case of shock, vibration and earthquake. Together, the instruments are designed to offer a comprehensive, reliable and easy solution for EPA Low As Reasonably Acceptable (LARA) compliance.

The gauges additionally provide:

  • The widest and most stable operating temperature range (-40 – 75 °C) of any competing instrument.
  • Independent multiplexing, which allows up to three gauges to use the same data system and transmitter.
  • Lead free circuit boards for compliance with the EU Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) and other regulations.
  • EZ CAL II calibration software for simplified instrument setup and maintenance.
