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.

Newspaper Article from 1986 on Krueger Sentry Gauge

I was doing some spring cleaning and organizing, and I found a treasure trove of classic Krueger Sentry Gauge documents, articles, photos, etc…

I will be posting some of this stuff over the next few weeks/months.  Some of it dates all the way back to 1943.

First up is an old Newspaper Article from 1986, when we only had 2 full time employees and one part timer.

Krueger Sentry Gauge 70th Anniversary

Krueger Sentry Gauge Founded in 1942:
  • Archie Comics were First Released in 1942
  • Casablanca and Bambie came out in 1942
  • Harrison Ford, Paul McCartney, and Jimi Hendrix were born in 1942
  • The first digital computer known as the Atanasoff-Berry Computer, or ABC, was conceptualized in 1937. In 1942, the invention came to fruition and was built at Iowa State University. John Vincent Atanasoff and Clifford Berry created this computer. It featured binary arithmetic, dual processors, regenerative memory and separate functions for computing and memory
  • On a personal note, when I started working for Krueger Gauge in 1994 at the age of 18, no one knew what the “intra-net” really was, and now Search Engine Optimization and social networking are my primary jobs.
  • Here is a funny video from 1994 that shows how far we have come in the last 18 years. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUs7iG1mNjI
In April, Krueger Sentry Gauge celebrated their 70th year of being in business, manufacturing liquid level mechanical gauges for the petroleum industry.
The company was founded during the upheaval and uncertainty of World War II and in this time of economic ups and downs the Krueger Gauge Family is proud to not only announce our 70th anniversary, but also re-state our policy on American Made products.  Not only is our gauge manufactured in Green Bay Wisconsin, nearly every component on our gauge is sourced from American Manufacturers.  We take pride in being American Made and will continue to take this hard stance on supporting our local economy. 

We would like to thank everyone who has made this milestone possible. It is truly a blessing to have customers and vendors that Krueger Sentry Gauge can rely and depend on for support.

Level Gauge Web Store Tutorial

Following up the announcement of our new web store, I would like to draw your attention to this video.  I go thru the process of ordering a custom liquid level gauge using our new store.   It is a short tutorial that shows the general functionality of the custom gauge configurator.

Link to our new level gauge store here.

New Krueger Sentry Gauge Webstore

The new web store is live.

http://level-gauges.ksentry.com/

This link takes you to the public store, which shows list pricing/end user pricing for our level gauges.  Wholesale customers / Distributors can call us for a special wholesale login which gives access to special pricing.   Now, you can fully configure a liquid level gauge through our store, regardless of how much customizing you need to do.

A quick walk thru:

  • On the first page, you see the 4 main categories.  Level, Leak, Overfill, and Parts.  For the sake of our demonstration, click on liquid level gauges.
  • On this page, you will see the 5 different gauges we offer for reading liquid level.  Click on the Therma Gauge.
  • On the product page, you have the choice between selecting pre configured gauges, or Configure Custom Gauge.  The pre configured gauges are common part numbers and then just some random stuff.  The Configure Custom Gauge link is the cool part, so lets start there.
  • On this page, you can select every gauge option that we have available for the gauge.  Certain options eliminate other options.  So if you select an option that conflicts with another option, the system will “grey out” or “change” what you are able to select.  (Example, max tank depth is usually 144 inches.  But if you select a gauge with stainless floats, the max tank depth is reduced to 120 inches.

OSHA Cites Coomes Oil & Supply and Florida Rock & Tank Lines in August BP

Gas Station Explosion in St. Augustine

4:45 PM, Feb 21, 2012   |   0  comments

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. — The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration today announced Coomes Oil & Supply Inc. has been cited in August’s explosion at a BP gas station.

According to an OSHA news release, a delivery driver for Florida Rock & Tank Lines was refilling an above-ground gasoline storage tank that had a broken gauge.

PICTURES: BP Gas Station Explosion

The tank overflowed. Vapors then combined with heat from the running delivery truck to trigger the explosion.

The OSHA inspection found that the gas station and Florida Rock & Tank Lines refilled the tank despite the inoperable liquid level gauging system.

OSHA has proposed a $70,000 fine be leveled against Florida Rock & Tank Lines along with a citation for one willful violation.

This violation is for “failing to provide the delivery driver to determine if the storage tank had enough capacity for additional gasoline.”

A “willful violation” is one committed with intentional knowing or voluntary disregard for the law’s requirements, according to the release.

In addition to Florida Rock & Tank Lines, Coomes Oil & Supply has also been issued a citation by OSHA.  Coomes Oil & Supply has been cited for failing to provide employees and delivery drivers a mean to determine the gasoline levels in the above-ground storage tank, a “serious violation” according to OSHA.

Too often broken gauges are ignored for years, never being repaired or replaced, the underlying danger going unnoticed.  As the story above goes to prove, the danger is all to real.  Don’t ignore that broken gauge.

In order to prevent breakage and weathering to a gauge, order a Krueger Sentry Level Gauge with the optional inner Glass Calibration and Gauge Guard.  These two components, when combined, severely limit the possibility of weathering and breakage of your liquid level gauge.

No chemicals were released into the environment.

The DEC said it received a report of the spill on December 2.

The following materials leaked:

- Sodium Hydroxide
- Sulfuric Acid

The DEC said two doublewall aboveground storage tanks leaked their chemical product into the secondary containment of their respective tank.

Plant personnel plan to pump product back into the original tanks, use the chemical up, then replace the tanks, the DEC said.
