Natural gas is considered one of the fuels of the future – with the development and extraction of deposits being pushed forward worldwide. Even with oil production, natural gas plays a role. The local production conditions require robust technologies, which also applies to measuring instruments. One particular challenge is level control in gas tanks, in which extreme pressure and low density of the medium occur simultaneously, meaning the measuring instrument must be immensely strong. WIKA provides a special patented design for these requirements:
• Level control in gas tanks is a particular challenge.
• The measuring instrument must be immensely strong as extreme pressure and low density of the medium occur simultaneously.
• A special design for these requirements is a level indicator with portholes from metal-fused glass.
