|Publication Date:||1 August 2009|
|ICS Code (Electrical equipment of ships and of marine structures):||47.020.60|
This specification covers the requirements for electrical liquid level indicating equipment for shipboard low pressure and high pressure tanks containing freshwater, feed water, potable water, seawater, wastewater, diesel fuel, lubricating oil, contaminated oil, refrigerants, JP fuels, and various other fluids. Application includes compensating tanks in which the equipment must locate the interface.
Each liquid level indicating equipment typically consists of the following components:
(a) One or more sensing devices;
(b) Flexible interconnections, if needed;
(c) Primary indicator panel assembly;
(d) Auxiliary indicator panel assembly, when required; and
(e) Portable indicator panel assembly, when required.
Special requirements for naval shipboard applications are included in the Supplementary Requirements section to this specification.
