US Gauge provides reliable oil and gas level measurement
Within the oil and gas industry, reliable instrumentation is critical to maximize production. Tanks holding various fluids all need level instruments that are capable of withstanding harsh environments while still providing accurate information.
Depending on what each tank contains, some of these instruments also need intrinsic safety ratings. Selecting the appropriate equipment is key to assuring accurate and reliable measurement of level to avoid spills and other potentially dangerous mistakes.
U.S. Gauge offers a broad selection of submersible level transducers on their webstore that are available for quick delivery. The selection includes intrinsically safe sensors for hazardous applications and general industrial units to measure clean water. There are five different models available for immediate delivery, including the low-cost SDT as well as the Intrinsically Safe Model 675 Shark Cage unit, which is designed for applications in lift stations, sludge tanks, or process sumps. The Slimline SST is one of the few units on the market that has an outside diameter of less than 1 inch while being extremely lightweight, making it ideal for deep wells and small-bore applications.
Customers can configure U.S. Gauge sensors at www.usgauge.com. Configuration options range from the output needed (feet or pressure range) to the type and length cable. Each unit is built to order and shipped from the U.S. Gauge plant in Horsham, PA, USA.
U.S. Gauge is one of the world's leading suppliers of high quality, competitively priced pressure gauges, diaphragm seals, temperature gauges, level transmitters, and thermowell fittings. Founded in 1904, U.S. Gauge produces a wide range of pressure gauges, from vacuum to 23,000 psi, in single or dual scale dials. Gauge sizes range from 1.5 inch to 6 inches, with brass, 316 stainless steel, or Monel internals.
U.S. Gauge is a part of the AMETEK STC (Sensors, Test and Calibration), business unit of AMETEK Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
