How to Monitor Your Propane (LPG) Level With a Float Sensor

You don't have to drain your tank to start remotely monitoring your propane (LPG) level. This makes it easy to make sure that your building's generator always has enough fuel to withstand a commercial power failure.

See how a typical float works, how it magnetically engages with a needle gauge, and how an "R3D-ready" gauge can output a level reading to a LAN-enabled RTU at your facility.

See RTUs compatible with this propane sensor.

The LPG Controller

The NetGuardian LPG Controller gives you maximum control over propane/diesel distribution and vessel management. This small propane tank monitor is ideal for remotely managing up to 5 liquid propane gas or diesel fuel tanks from a single piece of equipment.

The LPG Controller provides accurate and up-to-date readings to help you easily avoid preventable propane outages. It uses advanced analog sensor technology like Rochester gauges. This propane monitor RTU can also be used for diesel by simply connecting the appropriate tank level sensors.

The LPG Controller features both automatic and manual gas tank cycling. Whenever a tank is nearly empty, the valve is closed. Then, the next tank valve is opened. This function provides a steady supply of fuel and ensures that your revenue-generating network equipment is never compromised.

With a built-in web interface, the NetGuardian LPG allows you to remotely monitor your tank levels anytime, from virtually anywhere in the world. You need only a standard internet browser. In addition, the unit's front panel provides four propane threshold levels and valve status (open/close) through visual LED displays.
