DTGS Digital Tank Gauging System

DTGS – Marine Tank Level Monitoring Made Easy

Initially conceived as an all in one package for smaller vessels such as tugs and workboats, to provide an up to date replacement for conventional local mechanical gauges with accurate electronic measurement and a centralised display  the powerful functionality, ease of expansion and multiple display capabilities of the Digital Tank Gauging System (DTGS) has also found applications on larger vessels such as naval corvettes and ferries.

A Tank Gauging System That is Cost-Effective and Simple to Operate

Over forty years of global marine application experience, has led to the development of a system that offers the highest possible standards in terms of performance, versatility, functionality and reliability.

The DTGS tank level monitoring system uses marine certified components to build a tailored solution for vessels of all types:

The DTGS offers a complete tank monitoring system with remote display options and simple cabling. A real-time display with history logging means remote tank monitoring has never been easier.

Where required, parts are certified for installation in a hazardous area and approved by major classification societies for use in marine applications. They are suitable for fuel, lube oil, water, bilge and ballast level tanks.

The DTGS allows the benefits of electronic measurement transmitters and centralised display with alarm handling to be used for fuel and service tanks, with a reduced cost compared to a radar based inventory systems or transmitters connected to a PLC running custom software.

Each DTGS marine tank gauging system can be configured to the application, based on the actual number, size and type of tanks to be measured, and provides a system which offers clear accuracy and functional advantages compared to mechanical and visual level gauges.
