Overfill Gauge Alarms – New Options Available.

New models available for the Krueger Audible Overfill Prevention Alarms

The Audible Alarm accessory for the Krueger Gauge line of products has become a hot selling item.  Able to provide audible overfill protection or audible low level warnings, it is a convenient and inexpensive solution.  In response to feedback, we are now offering the Overfill Gauge Alarm in several new configurations.  All of the configurations are available in both our remote mounted versions and direct mounted versions.

  • DAlarm-FL and RAlarm-FL : With this model, the audible fill alarm is replaced with a flashing light.  The flashing light will trigger with the magnetic sensor in the fill gauge and continues to flash until reset.
  • Dalarm-FL-TO & RAlarm-FL-TO : With this model, there is an audible alarm, a flashing light, and a time out feature.  When triggered, the alarm will sound for 20 seconds, then it will silence itself and chirp every few seconds.  The flashing light will go until reset.
  • DAlarm-DC-FL & RAlarm-DC-FL : This gauge alarm replaces the audible alarm with a set of dry contacts and a flashing light.  The light will flash until reset.
  • DAlarm-DC-FL-TO & RAlarm-DC-FL-TO : This version has dry contacts, audible alarm, flashing light, and a time out feature.  The alarm itself will shut off after 20 seconds and begin to chirp until reset.  The flashing light will go until reset as well.

Remote Liquid Level Gauge Monitor- Extreme Tests

LED At A Glance Remote Monitor – Liquid Level

The LED At A Glance, a remote display accessory for the Krueger line of liquid level gauges, has been put through some rigorous weather tests and has passed with flying colors.

Early in the winter season, we set up some liquid level gauges outside the shop mounted to some 55 gallon drums.  The wires for the remote level monitors were then run over to the wall and the LED At A Glance remote level gauge displays were then set up in exposed areas.

Luckily, (for our testing purposes anyway), we got hit with a major snow storm. (18 inches of snow, 20 below zero with windchill).

Pictured above (the first picture) you can see the exposed remote display wire encased in ice.

Pictured directly above, you can see how the remote liquid level monitor itself was totally buried in snow and then dug out.

Although we do suggest placing a hood or some other sort protection over the level monitor, in all testing cases the remote liquid level monitor still worked great after the storm went through.
