Chemical Sight Gauge for more aggressive liquids

Standard Krueger sight gauges are best known in the petroleum equipment industry for providing inexpensive yet reliable liquid level fill gauges for all types of tanks.  Yet with the growing amount of alternative fuels including bio diesel and E-85, we found it advantageous to create sight gauge packages that include all stainless steel or all plastic components.  This created an excellent side effect.

Our sight gauges can now handle extremely aggressive chemicals including Sulfuric Acid and Hydrochloric Acid.  Some chemical sight gauge examples include:

DEF -Diesel Exhaust Fluid Level Gauges

I have done some research, and I am proud to announce that the current Krueger Liquid Level Gauge product line will be fully compatible with the new DEF that will be hitting markets soon.  I recommend any one of the following three material configurations.

  • SSR – Stainless Steel Rods, the rest of the gauge is standard.  This is compatible, and the least expensive option.
  • AllSS – Stainless Rods, Stainless Floats, and a Stainless Bushing.  This DEF level gauge is a tank.  The top model of our gauges.
  • AllPlastic – Peek Rods, HDPE Float, PVC bushing.  This Diesel Exhaust Fluid Level gauge is extremely corrosion resistant and is fully compatible with DEF.

Overfill Prevention and Leak Detection Regulations

As most of you know, regulations on above ground storage tanks are getting more strict.  Krueger Gauge has gotten some third party testing done on our Therma Tank Level Gauge and our Overfill Alert Gauge.  The results have gotten us approved by Florida (FDEP) as an overfill prevention device on above ground storage tanks.   We have not been informed at this point that we need any special approvals for other states, but you should check with your local governments for info on this.  Special Documents are and ordering instructions are required for you to comply with some of these overfill regulations.

Also, some time ago, we were approved as a Leak detection gauge on double wall storage tanks in Florida as well.  The documents documents for this are as follows.

For more information or product documents, please visit our website.

1943 Vintage Krueger Sentry At A Glance Gauge

I was on Ebay when I found this gem.  A vintage 1943 At A Glance Krueger Sentry Gauge.  It has all the original packaging and instructions.  Of course I had to buy it.  And obviously, there wasn’t a lot of competition on the purchase.  Go figure, I was the only one who wanted a 66 year old liquid level gauge.

New Product – http://www.ksentry.com/led.htm

New Product- Remote Liquid Level Gauge

Our new product is just on the horizon.  The LED At A Glance.  It is a remote display accessory that fits right on our current line of liquid level gauges.  Now you can turn any Krueger tank level gauge into a remote reading gauge.  This was originally designed with the home heating oil market in mind.  Home owners can mount this to their gauge in the basement, and put the remote display in a more convenient location.  The parallel applications for the product seem endless, however.  If you have a tank that is 10 feet in the air and you want to be able to read the gauge at ground level.  This is perfect.  Check out the picture, and if you have any questions just visit our website and get in contact with us.

China -The Manufacturing Giant

A salesman called me the other day offering assistance in getting our manufacturing outsourced to China. “It’s the wave of the future, if you don’t get on the boat you will be left behind and your business will fail.” This was his quote. Everyone from other manufacturers, to magazine articles, and even motivational speakers at conventions have told me this. Get on the boat, or fail. The only way we can remain competitive is to not only get our components from China, but to get our entire product line manufactured in China.

Krueger Sentry Gauge has taken a hard stand on this topic. Our plant is in Green Bay Wisonsin and we manufacture our product right here at home. Any component that we can produce ourselves at competitive prices is done so right here in our facilities. All components for our products that we can’t produce ourselves we have produced by other United States Manufacturer’s. I see no reason to change this. We get quality parts at fair prices from our US manufacturers.

In other words, our liquid level gauges and all of the components on our gauges are Made in the USA and will continue to be made in the USA. We have been in business for over 65 years, we have sold over 3 million gauges, our business continues to grow, and our business has stayed strong and competive despite not getting on the so called “boat”.

I am not a golden aged 75 year old man with a grudge. I am not taking a stand and trying to do what I think is best for this country. I am a 33 year old future business leader doing what I believe is best for this company and its products.
