The downpipe (or “bubbler”) technique has broad applica­tion and helps to isolate the transmitter both from the process and liquid media. At the Coastline Chemical facility in New Church VA, they have our D/P Purge Control transmitter on 8 tanks that are linked to a central LP2 tank display. In addition to producing Pride brand antifreeze and coolant products, the company is also an industrial chemical distributor and offers contract packaging services.

They utilize a tank level gauging system based on our KING-GAGE LP2 Model 4641 Multiple Tank Display. Level measurement at the tank begins with KING-GAGE Model 788 D/P Purge Control that continuously flows compressed air into a downpipe extending into the tank. This creates pressure applied at the transmitter equal to the hydrostatic pressure due to liquid depth.

The LP2 display allows plant operators to view tank level in gallons, pounds, or percent-full. Owing to a range of product formulations, they also can input the specific gravity independently for each tank using the front panel keypad. Tank levels can be viewed on demand or the display can be set to automatically scroll through all 8 tanks for continuous monitoring.
