About the product

The Quantum Manual Hydrostatic Fuel Tank Gauge is new to our range of commercial tank gauges and boasts a number of beneficial factors – one of which being it requires no power, and has a hand pump mechanism which is used to reveal the current tank contents.

Constructed from 304 grade stainless steel, this fuel tank contents gauge gives readings in litres/gallons, is suitable for any shape tank with a maximum height of 8 meters and has a high accuracy of +/-1% at full scale. Please note, this fuel tank level gauge must be calibrated to the size of your tank.

The Quantum fuel tank gauge is ideal for heavy duty, industrial and plant applications, and can be used with water, diesel, kerosene, lubricants and tanks containing more aggressive fluids.

Please find the downloadable calibration questionnaire, which must be filled in and sent to sales@centretank.com upon ordering this gauge. This fuel tank gauge is made to order, so please be aware there is a lead time of up to 10-15 working days.

How does this diesel and heating oil tank gauge work?

The hydrostatic fuel and heating oil tank gauge uses a submersible pressure sensor or balance chamber that is installed at a specific depth (zero level) into the tank. When the pressure sensor is filled with air by pumping a plunger on the gauge, it measures the pressure caused by the weight of the liquid directly on top of it, which allows you to get a reading.

Due to the hydrostatic paradox, the pressure sensor does not measure the complete volume in the tank above it, but only the liquid column vertically above it. For this reason, in order to provide a litre reading, these diesel and oil tank level gauges have to be calibrated with the tank shape and size details.

Why do I have to fill out a questionnaire?

If you are buying a calibrated fuel tank contents gauge then you will always need to fill out a tank questionnaire which requests details such as the exact dimensions and shape of the tank, as well as the fluid the tank contains. As a calibrated tank level gauge’s reading is in litres, if any of the information needed about the tank is wrong or missing, then an inaccurate reading will be given.
