Designed with cryogenic tanks in mind, our cryogenic fuel level indicator model 1516 level gauges has specific features that tank manufacturers, gas companies, distributors and end users prefer. They are found on LIN, LOX, LAR tanks along with CO2 and LNG.


Tank Level Applications:

  • Liquid Cylinders
  • Micro-Bulk
  • Bulk Tanks
  • ISO Tanks
  • Tank Trailers


Rugged Design

Machined from solid blocks of brass or aluminum, our cryogenic level gauges are built to withstand high tank pressures and rough handling. Magnetic coupling of sensor and indicator eliminates mechanical linkages that can wear or fail. Strong weatherproof metal dials allow our cryogenic level gauges to weather extreme elements while protecting the sensitive sensor inside.


Cryogenic storage tanks can take a beating. Transported by ship, truck or rail, liquid cylinders often contend with vibration, shock and difficult weather conditions, including hot and cold temperatures, rain and sea salt. Not every gauge can handle such conditions. Most gauges cannot combine accuracy and sensitivity with this required ruggedness. Orange Research cryogenic level gauges achieve this balance, proving themselves on all tanks, in all conditions, working reliably for many years.


Many Standard Cryogenic Level Gauge Features

We offer brass or aluminum pressure bodies, with dial sizes 70mm, 100mm, 120mm and 150mm. Whether you need to read a gauge up close or at a distance, we have a solution for both small and large tanks. Side, back or bottom port bodies are available.

We offer many standard dial options, including the popular red arc on the lower 30% of the scale to indicate low tank level. Oxygen cleaning option and custom logos are also available.

Our 0-5 Volt and 4-20mA output transmitters are gaining in popularity. Having an easy-to-read dial with a transmitter option allows for convenient local and remote monitoring from a single instrument. This reduces installation time and saves you money.
