In the digital era of soft sensors and virtual gauges it’s reassuring that some folks are still making meters that actually measure stuff. Boerne, Texas-based Electrolab is one such outfit that has just announced a new Model 2100 digital level sensor (DLS) with a high level shut-in function. The 2100’s patented sensing technology captures up to two fluid levels and eight temperature measurements in the same tank with a single sensor. A dedicated safety circuit ensures accurate high level and ‘high-high’ protection. The intrinsically safe unit is certified as class I, div 1 Group D for hazardous locations. Patent pending ‘oleophobic’ treatment mitigates paraffin and asphaltene buildup. The system meets Category 3, API STD 2350 (4th Edition 2012) requirements for mitigating the risk of environmental exposure to petrochemicals.
