TGS-3937 Magnetically Coupled Rising Stick Gauge
- REGULATORY COMPIANCE
The TIMCO Model TSG-3937 is USCG Accepted and satisfies 46CFR 39.20 3(b) as well as OPA 90 regulations for overfill devices
Personnel and the environment are NOT exposed to hazardous cargo vapors when using the TSG-3937 magnetically coupled rising stick gauge. When fitted with a properly labeled Tri-Colored Gauge/Rod, the reliable TSG-3937 in conjunction with a Sight Glass, are invaluable tools for use by Tankering personnel in the safe transfer of liquid cargo.
- EASY STANDARD INSTALLATION
The TSG-3937 Rising Stick Gauge mounts to an 8” 150LB Class Flange Spool piece, typically6” above deck. The spool piece location is best near the geometric center of each cargo compartment adjacent to HL/OF Alarm Sensors.
Spool piece welding to the deck should only be on the OD of the pipe and not on the inside of the spool piece to allow the SS float to pass without interference into the cargo tank.
SMALLER FLANGES OR THREADED COLLARS CAN BE PROVIDEDFOR RISING STICK GAUGE INSTALLATION ON TOWBOAT OR DECK MOUNTED FUEL TANKS
- ALL STAINLESS CONSTRUCTION
All Wetted components are 300 series SS and fully pressure tested. Each 316SS float is laser etched with both S.G. and Pressure Ratings. Proven Magnetic Design, Buoyant American MFG Float Technology and Lightweight but Strong Tri-Colored Gauge Rod, insure extended life and reliability with the TSG-3937.
- CUSTOM TO YOUR BARGE IS STANDARD
The reflective Tri-Colored Gauge Rod graphic by TIMCO is computer printed as one graphic prior to encapsulation. This process allows for the colored lengths, numbering scale as well as High Level or Overfill Markings to be customized and correct for your barge providing Tankering personnel tools that are meaningful and safer than standard off the shelf one-size fits all gauge rods.
The Model TGS-3937 is U.S. Coast Guard accepted. It satisfies 46 CFR 39.20 3(b) as well as OPA 90 regulations for overfill devices and is suitable for use on ABS classed vessels.
Personnel are not exposed to hazardous cargo vapors on the tank top when using. The hazard of overfill spills is greatly reduced when properly used.
Simply bolt the TGS-3937 to an 8” flanged pipe stand located at or near the geometric center of the cargo compartment. The deck opening must be large enough for the 7” dia. float to pass through. TIMCO can provide optional prefabricated mounting standpipes, flange gaskets and mounting hardware upon request.
