Orange Research announces a simple, innovative solution to replacing Barton level gauges on cryogenic tanks, without moving piping or changing mounting brackets…and at less than ½ the price and with a 2 week delivery!

Orange Research has been supplying the popular model 1516 to replace Barton level gauges on cryogenic tanks for decades. Our 1516 has become the standard on micro-bulk and bulk tanks. For new installations the 1516 is the perfect solution to the high Barton price and long lead times.

But for older tanks, or for distributors with many tanks in the field, service or replacement often requires changing the mounting configuration and moving the piping to accommodate a different level gauge. By adding a manifold the model 1536 mimics the back of the Barton gauge. You can remove the Barton gauge and install model 1536 in minutes.

Like the 1516, the same, easy-to-read, 150mm (6 inch) diameter dial clearly presents the user with the level information while allowing many standard features. A bright, white dial with your logo or multicolor arc are standard options, something not attainable in 2 weeks from Barton.


The standard 1536 pressure body is Brass or Aluminum. Both are very popular.

Standard configuration has the high pressure on the left (Hi-left). Hi-right is a standard no-charge option. These left and right configurations can be changed in the field by changing the back manifold.
