Density Measurement Sensor

Whether for a new or existing installation, the Density Measurement Sensor easily installs on the OPW Magnetostrictive Probe. Combining industry-leading accuracy for water, product and density measurement, the SiteSentinel® family Density Measurement Sensor uses a single magnetostrictive in-tank probe assembly.

The sensor continuously measures the density of the fuel in the tank, providing a measure of even the smallest changes in product quality within the API density range. Fuel density reports can be displayed real-time on the SiteSentinel® family of controllers or exported to an external display. The density readings can be configured to either nominal or temperature-corrected density.

Density Measurement Sensor Features

  • Accurate - Uses float displacement, taking advantage of the precision and accuracy of the magnetostrictive probe’s level measurement which is capable of detecting changes of 0.0005 inches (0.0127 mm)
  • Installation - Density and level measurement combined on one IS channel
  • Integration - As with every OPW tank gauge component, the density sensor works seamlessly with the SiteSentinel® family of products
  • Savings - Easily retrofitted to new and existing in-tank SiteSentinel® 924B level probes, providing an economical solution to ensure continuous product quality
  • Trouble-free design
  • Easy to retrofit to existing in-tank level probes (SiteSentinel® 924B Probe)
  • Density and level measurement combined on one IS module position connection without the need for a dedicated input channel or additional wiring
  • Fits through the same 2" (5 cm) opening in the tank that’s used by the probe
  • Economical solution to ensure continuous product quality
  • 4 probes (with density sensor) per IS Channel (Sitesentinel® iSite™ only)
  • Dedicated density probes can support three (3) density sensors per probe to ensure product quality – not available with level measurement
  • Applications

  • Provide real-time, accurate density information
  • Displays density in kg/m3, g/cc or API
  • Applicable in petroleum products designed for both underground (UST) and aboveground (AST) rigid probe applications
  • Single sensor per standard in-tank probe or multi-sensor for dedicated triple-sensor density probe
