Round Rock, TX— Weed Instrument reports that it has introduced a new, permanently installed sensor that is designed to measure tank temperature while determining the interface level between the tank’s water bottom and product.

The company says its Accu-Temp Type MWR tank temperature measurement sensor provides average or spot temperature readings, while continuously indicating water/product interface. Though reportedly lightweight for easier installation, the sensor is built of corrosion-resistant stainless steel or Monel. Accu-Temp Type MWR can be used in tanks as high as 150 ft (50 m).

Designed for direct immersion in the product in a tank, Accu-Temp Type MWR requires only one entry opening in its tank. Various tank entry connections and terminal enclosures are available.

The sensor’s averaging temperature curve can be either 100-ohm copper or 100-ohm DIN platinum-characterized copper. Its spot temperature curve may be either 100-ohm copper or 100-ohm DIN platinum.

In addition, a water bottom probe is available without the temperature sensing elements. The water interface data provided by the probe can be used to calculate net barrels or to schedule water draw-off operations.
