Fires and explosions pose a constant threat to the safety of miners and to the productive capacity of mines. Mine fires and explosions traditionally have ranked among the most devastating industrial disasters. The prevention and control of these in mines is fundamental.
At Coltraco Ultrasonics we continue to propel forward our Research & Development projects and are proud to be launching new products during the crisis, notably the Portatank® – the brand new portable ultrasonic liquid level indicator for inspecting industrial tanks up to 15 metres diameter.
As our lead design engineer, Benjamin is responsible for the research, design and development of new technologies. Employing knowledge of material properties, electronics, programming, and 3D design; Benjamin is able to bring novel instrumentation to the various markets we serve.
With thanks to Mr Seiji Uehara for this video which clearly demonstrates the benefits of using an ultrasonic liquid level indicator rather than using radioactive level indicator.
The Portalevel® IS proudly boasts Ex Veritas approval to Zone 1, II 2 G Ex ib IIA T4 Gb standard, the only ultrasonic liquid level indicator of its kind with such rating. With this approval the Portalevel® IS is explosion proof instrumentation. The unit is ideal for environments with gas, vapours and mists (IECEx Zone 1) such as LNG Tankers, Offshore Platforms with flammable gases, Breweries, Chemical plants, Petrochemical and Hazardous material storage facilities plus many more.
