World Leading Radar Tank Gauging System Slightly Changed Over Night

On March 1 2007, we dropped the word "Saab" from our brand name of high-precision radar tank gauging systems from Emerson. The former Saab Rosemount product range is now called simply Rosemount. For example the former "Saab TankRadar Rex" gauges become "Rosemount TankRadar Rex".

The reason for the change is that the licence agreement that was made 2001 when Emerson acquired the radar line of Saab has expired.

We are of course very happy with our new product brand; "Rosemount" is one of the most highly rated global product brands throughout the process industry.

The product names have changed, but everything else remains - still the same people, experience and industry expertise.

Rosemount Tank Gauging Safety Solutions, now also Featuring SIL 2

TankRadar Rex (RTG 3900 Series) is the first level gauge to be assessed by third party to be suitable for use in SIL 2 safety functions according to IEC 61508/61511. The safety function is based on the relay outputs. One relay, or a combination of two, can be used for overfill or dry run prevention.

In addition, both Rosemount TankRadar Rex and Pro radar level gauges, are approved by German TÜV to be used for both level measurements, and at the same time for overfill prevention.

If a separate device is required to detect an overfill, you can use the Mobrey DS20D or Rosemount 2120 Vibrating Fork alarm switches. The first one is intended for tanks with floating roofs, and the second for fixed roofs.
