Ballast Water in the Wing and Double Bottom Tanks
The ballast water measurements in the wing and double bottom tanks go directly into the calculations for ship trim, draft, and list. Since the measuring sites during operation on board are virtually inaccessible, reliability and stability are an absolute must. Pressure shocks, abrasive sand particles, and brackish water place additional heavy demands on the instrumentation.
VEGABAR 66 for Double Bottom Tanks
Thanks to its separate electronics, sensor housing in IP 69K, and ceramic measuring cell, the pressure transmitter VEGABAR 66 is the perfect sensor for harsh conditions.
The mounting bosses, which are partly located on deck, are sealed with stainless steel process fittings and thus withstand the effects of the atmosphere or breaking waves. The climate compensated electronics can be installed on site.
VEGAPULS 66 in the Wing Tank
VEGAPULS 66 offers reliable and safe measurement in the straight, vertical wing tanks. The sensors are unaffected by breaking waves and abrasion. Temperature fluctuations in the tank also do not influence the measuring result. The housing is available in an IP 68 version and does not need ventilation. A special connection is available for optional hand sounding.
