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.

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.
