Manufacturing standards and specifications for marine liquid level gauges

1. Introduction

Marine liquid level gauge is an important equipment on ships, used to measure the liquid level of cargo in the cabin, and plays a very important role in the transportation and operation of ships. However, as a liquid level measurement device, the manufacturing process and quality of marine liquid level gauges are crucial for the accuracy of measurement results and ship safety. It is necessary to understand the corresponding manufacturing standards and specifications during the selection, installation, and maintenance of marine level gauges.

2. Material requirements

The materials used for marine level gauges must have sufficient strength and corrosion resistance, as well as high and low temperature resistance. Common materials include carbon steel, stainless steel, copper, aluminum, etc. In addition, due to the harsh environment and shaking conditions of ships, the internal structure and materials of the liquid level gauge must have certain seismic and vibration resistance performance.

3. Manufacturing process

The manufacturing process of marine liquid level gauges requires continuous improvement, especially in the processing, assembly, and debugging processes, ensuring meticulous and strict control of every detail. The key points of the manufacturing process include: 1) the accuracy of the meter head should reach level 0.5; 2) Correct connection of cables and protective pipes; 3) Conduct strict inspections before assembly to ensure the integrity and completeness of the parts; 4) The protective measures are complete, such as waterproofing the connection between the meter head and the wire.

4.  Inspection standards

Marine liquid level gauge is a liquid level measuring device, whose accuracy and reliability directly affect the safety of ship operation. In order to ensure the safe and reliable operation of marine level gauges, their performance must be verified through strict inspection standards. Common inspection standards include: 1) The static error and repeatability error of the liquid level gauge should be less than 0.5%; 2) The liquid level gauge should be able to respond normally to changes in the liquid level; 3) The protective cover and protective tube should be able to withstand adverse environmental effects such as salt mist, sunlight, and storms.

5. Conclusion

As a necessary equipment on ships, the production and manufacturing standards and specifications of marine liquid level gauges are very important. Only by adopting strict manufacturing standards and specifications can the reliability and accuracy of the liquid level gauge be guaranteed, thereby ensuring the safe operation of the ship. The design and manufacturing of marine level gauges require extremely high technical capabilities and strict quality control. Only level gauges that truly meet these conditions can be widely used.
