Say Goodbye to the Cork Floats

NO MORE CORK Floats on our Leak Gauges.  

Krueger Sentry Gauge has a newly designed HDPE Plastic Float that is going to be in use on all of our Leak Gauges moving forward regardless of gauge size.  In the past, the only float available for our larger leak gauges was a poly coated cork.  This cork presented several problems in the field, especially since the advent of some of the new fuel blends.

Now we have a newly designed, oversized, plastic float that has enough buoyancy to float even our largest Leak Gauges.

This news is especially important for our Florida customers, where the FDEP would not allow the use of Cork.  The new plastic float is now the standard material on all interstial leak detection gauges.

The new floats have not affected pricing either.  As you know, we pride ourselves on our products being manufactured in the USA.  Not only that, but we also source all of our components from US manufacturers. This policy has not changed with our new plastic floats, which are sourced and manufactured in the USA.

As always, Simple, Durable, Inexpensive, Easy to Use.

Solid Glass Calibrations for Liquid Level Gauges

Solid Glass Gauge Tops Now Available:

Liquid Level Tank Gauge with more durable solid glass top

 

The new solid glass gauge display offers the same or better physical durability as the original plastic tops. However, this new glass gauge top offers much better resistance to sun damage, heat, weathering, chemical fumes, and more.  

The new glass gauge top eliminates the discoloration and cloudiness that can sometimes occur with the original plastic tops.  

It also will not warp, no matter how much heat and sun you expose it to. 

The new glass calibration will also hold up better when exposed to more aggressive chemical conditions, such as acids, caustics, high ethanol E85, Bio Diesel, etc…  

Currently, this glass option is available on three models.  The Type D At A Glance Direct Reading Gauge, the Type H Therma Gauge, and the Type K At A Glance Leak Gauge.

The oldest most reliable mechanical gauge on the market just got better.  As always, our gauges and all the parts on our gauges are Made in the USA.

Krueger Liquid Level Gauge Glass Calibration

Solid Glass Calibration for Krueger Sentry Liquid Level Gauge

Krueger Sentry Gauge has added a new Option for the liquid level Therma Gauge.  The exposed calibration on top of the gauge is now available in an ALL GLASS OPTION.  Our new level gauge calibration is made of thick/durable glass.  This will make the gauge more durable when it is outside and exposed to the elements.  No more cracked, cloudy, warped, or discolored plastic tops.  This new glass gauge will hold up to virtually any amount of sun exposure and heat.

Order the new Solid Glass Calibration as either an add on option for your new gauges, or order the Solid Glass Repair Kit to upgrade your current gauge in the field.  Currently this new glass level  gauge is only available for the Krueger Sentry Therma Gauge model Type H (other models coming soon).

We hope to have the new product in hand and ready to supply to you by February 1st, 2015.  A small quantity of samples are available now to distributors upon request.

Krueger Sentry Therma Gauge Is A Movie Star

So, I sat down the other day to watch a horribly fantastic SyFy movie called Alien Tornado.  You know the type of movie this is.  Bad acting, bad special effects, low budget, and a fantastic title. Movies that are so bad, they are good.  Kind of like Sharknado, Piranhaconda, Ghost Shark, or Robo Croc, just to name a few.   But something about Alien Tornado jumped out at me like the end of a horror movie when the bad guy is not actually dead.  (Speaking of which, never forget rule number 4: Double Tap)  Alien Tornado has a scene near the end of the movie that features a Krueger Sentry Gauge.  Yes, you heard it here first.  Alien Tornado gave our Therma Gauge some screen time.  How awesome is that.  Well, not very to most of you, but we frickin love it.

Oh yeah, I would like to make two points. First, If you want to use the Krueger Liquid Level Gauge as a handle to save you from an Alien Tornado, I suggest you equip it with the Gauge Guard.  In its base form, it really is not meant as a handle.  Second, the whole point of this scene is that they have to fill up the tank for some reason.  Ummmmm, look at your handy little gauge there.  The tank is full…

Green Bay Packers Training Camp- Defensive Line

Of all the free agency losses this year, the one that hurt the most was Cullen Jenkins.  With no proven back up, replacing him on the line is a shot in the dark.  Packers fans have become accustomed to not panicking during free agency.  Every year guys leave and the Packers stick to there guns and there plans, young guys step up, and by the end of the year we don’t even remember the free agency panic we all went through.  This one could be different.

With no proven pass rusher at OLB opposite of Clay Matthews, Cullen Jenkins pass rush ability was what kept defenses honest and helped prevent double teams on Clay (or at least limit double teams).  Here is a depth chart of the D-Line.

  • Left Defensive End: Mike Neal, CJ Wilson, Lawrence Guy
  • Nose Tackle: Ryan Pickett, Howard Green
  • Right Defensive End: BJ Raji, Jarius Wynn

There are a few others, but for the purposes of this article, I am sticking to the top guys.  They have moved Raji from his natural nose tackle position into Jenkins old position.  This move has pros and cons.  The pros:  Pickett is able to go back to his best position at nose tackle after playing Left End last year.  Also, BJ Raji is likely the best candidate on the team for replacing Jenkins.  The cons:  BJ Raji is an awesome nose tackle.  Moving him scares me, but I look forward to be proven wrong.

I have no fears or concerns about Ryan Pickett and Howard Green in the middle.  These guys are effective run stuffers and anchors in the middle.  In the pass game they collapse the pocket and in the run game they force you to run around them.   I love it when the big guys in the middle drop anchor and suck up blocks.  It is such an under rated portion of the game.

At left end (or strong side) is Mike Neal or CJ Wilson.  Mike Neal is a little small for the spot, but he is the strongest player on the whole team which should balance out.  And when he has been in the line up he has shown flashes of brilliance.  Problem is, he has had bad luck with injuries.  I never label a player injury prone.  In most cases it is simple bad luck.  We cannot ignore, however, that he is a young player that needs reps and he currently is not getting them.

The Green Bay Packers are thin on the D-Line.  Hopefully the injury bug stays away and the young guys step up, but even if there are problems history says that the Packers don’t often use 3 down lineman anyway.  Have to find some way to get all of our awesome corners and safeties on the field.

Barrel Gauge – Now Available in All Stainless Steel Construction

The Liquid Level Barrel Gauge is now available in

All Stainless Steel Construction.

The Type B-Barrel Gauge can be purchased with all stainless steel wetted components. This includes the bushing, the wetted rods, and the floats.

In order to increase the level gauge’s compatibility with more aggressive liquids (including Caustics, DEF, E85, and more…) this gauge also comes standard with viton gaskets.  The internal piece of the calibration is made of glass.  This alternative gives the plastic calibration added resistance to internal fumes and all types of heat.
