TWS – R&D Full/Empty sensor


Hamburg-based TWS, a leasing company with a reputation for innovation and new technology and already customer of IMT, is working with IMT to develop a new sensor called the FE17-Ex. This will be an ATEX-approved ‘full-empty’ sensor.

It will be made up of two sensors that are welded onto the outside of the tank container at the 20% and 80% fill heights. By registering the presence of liquid on the other side of tank container wall, the exact moment that the tank container is filled and/or emptied can be identified.

Important: both sensors are non-intrusive so no drilling is needed to install the sensors nor tank tests after their installation is needed.
