Bergan Float Gauging System

Float based gauging is accomplished by a cargo/pressure compatible stainless steel float installed on a gauge pipe.

The float contains a magnet inside to activate gauging device. The switch or gauging device is inserted into the pipe, and activated by the magnets in the floats. When cargo is loaded into a tank, the float rises with the level of the cargo.

This is measured by the gauging device in the pipe and sent to either an alarm control panel for alarms or local display and cabinet for ullage/innage in meters or feet/inches.

When discharging cargo, the function is reversed, showing the level or closing the alarm switches.
