Easily verify float sensor response and perform overfill alarm response testing without disturbing sensors in the tank. Ensure that your overfill protection system responds to high and overfill levels. Takes under 5 minutes to set-up and perform test. Test alarm system only or test electronically controlled inlet valves for function. Tester is able to isolate float sensors from the Ullage, testing their liquid level response.
In the past, the only means of determining if Overfill Protection Equipment was functioning correctly was to overfill the tank, (hopefully) triggering the Overfill Protection Equipment to actuate. Float sensors can be removed from the tank and manually tested to ensure they monitor and transmit the proper information correctly, but there has been no way of knowing that the sensor will function “as installed” in the tank.
The sensor tester installs permanently in a 4” bung (opening) in the tank top. The tank’s float sensor is then installed through a 2” port in the Sensor Tester. The technician engages the Sensor Tester, fills the column with fuel, and assures the tank monitoring equipment alarms appropriately. If tank monitoring equipment alarms, the float sensor(s) is functioning. The In-Tank Float Sensor Tester is then quickly reset for normal operations. There is a go-no go cap that assures the sensors are in communication with the tank.
