Tool provides propane cylinder users tank level details

April 1, 2017 By    

Bergquist Inc. introduced the LPG TankCheck sensor from Mopeka Products at the National Propane Gas Association’s 2017 Southeastern Convention & International Propane Expo.

According to Bergquist, the LPG TankCheck lets individuals know the level of liquid propane within cylinders. The magnetic monitor is ideal for RV cylinders, gas grills, residential LP tanks and even steel forklift cylinders, Bergquist says.

“Users have always had difficulty determining the level of propane in their tanks,” says Dale Aldrich, director of inside sales at Bergquist. “With the TankCheck sensor from Mopeka, we can help our customers solve the age-old problem of running out of propane while grilling, traveling in their motorhomes or when using forklifts.”

Specifically, TankCheck is a small ultrasonic sensor that sits at the bottom of the propane tank and reads the exact amount of propane present in the cylinder at all times. Users can read accurate and up-to-date levels either through a standalone display monitor or via a Bluetooth application that’s available for both IOS or Android phones and tablets.

The sensor’s Bluetooth communications range enables remote monitoring up to 50 ft. away, depending on obstructions such as walls and other materials. Monitoring the sensor with a smart device requires downloading the free app.
