The TCG2000 digital tank contents gauge has been designed to meet the specific application requirements of bulk liquid mass measurement on storage tanks, for stock control and local contents readout. The TCG2000 is a highly accurate digital gauge, which when mounted near the base of a storage tank will calculate and display the product contents in tonnes. Basically the design consists of state of the art silicon-on- sapphire pressure sensor, a digital processor unit and a 5 digit LCD local readout display. With this unique design the pressure generated by the liquid contents is sensed and by digital processing a measurement for the contents mass is then calculated.

The unique Silicon-on-Sapphire sensor technology provides outstanding performance and gives excellent stability over a wide temperature range. The advanced sensor design consists of a piezoresistive silicon strain gauge circuit, which is epitaxially grown onto the surface of a sapphire diaphragm to form a single crystalline structure. The sapphire sensor element is then molecularly bonded to a Titanium alloy sub-diaphragm. This enables the sensor to endure higher over- pressures and provides superb corrosion resistance. The completed sensor exhibits virtually no hysteresis and excellent long-term stability. With outstanding insulation properties, the sapphire substrate protects the strain gauge circuit from electromagnetic pulse radiation and allows the sensor to operate over a very wide temperature range without loss of performance.

A 3/4“ ASA 150lb stainless steel flange with 14mm diameter inlet bore provides the process connection. The large inlet bore and special crevice free design of the process connection enables even viscous liquids to free flow to the sensing diaphragm, this enhances measurement accuracy and assists with maintenance and cleaning. To assist commissioning and allow re-calibration on-site the zero and span can simply be readjusted with the push button controls on the local display panel located inside the weatherproof enclosure.
