OleumTech Announces a Continuous Liquid Level Sensor Based on Proven Magnetostrictive Technology

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2009) - OleumTech today announced the release of the H-Series, hard-wired continuous level sensors, which complements its existing wireless liquid level transmitter offering. The H-Series is a digital level sensor based on a field proven magnetostrictive technology, which makes it ideal for Oil & Gas, Food & Beverage and other level measurement applications requiring process control, leak detection or inventory control.

With a low power design, H-Series sensors can be multi-dropped on a RS485 network, providing Modbus connectivity to a RTU or PLC controller. By combining low power requirements with high resolution of 0.01" across full span, the H-Series provides the ultimate performance and reliability.

"The new liquid level solution is ideal for short distance runs to the RTU or existing legacy installs where conduit and wiring is available," said Vrej Isa, COO at OleumTech. "But it's the innovative packaging with the ease of installation that will set us apart from the competition."

The Liquid Level Sensor is capable of providing product level, interface level and temperature measurement in virtually all tank sizes (up to 60 feet tall) in a variety of liquids such as crude oil, solvents, water, diesel, kerosene, gasoline and other media. The H-Series is available in a rigid stainless steel or flexible PVDF package.

The H-Series design meets applicable regulatory requirements for use in hazardous environments. OleumTech additionally offers an optional barrier board that limits the current, voltage, and total energy delivered to the sensor in a hazardous area or flammable environment. The barrier boards also provide extra protection to the level sensor from lightning strikes or any surge damage.

Each unit is factory tested and comes with a 24-month warranty.
