1-1/4” or 1-1/2” MNPT Lever Gauge for Stationary Horizontal Cylindrical Farm Tanks or Tanks With Flat Heads

These lever-action gauges are designed primarily for use in stationary horizontal cylindrical farm tanks or other tanks with flat heads. They are to be mounted on the centerline in the middle of the head. The maximum recommended float length is 48″ [1219mm]. They are available in either 1-1⁄4″ MNPT or 1-1⁄2″ MNPT versions.

General Information & Features
The float and rod assembly is normally shipped unassembled to the head assembly for maximum flexibility to your inventory. The float rod is cut to the proper length for each size tank, notched, then inserted into the sleeve attached to the short section of lever rod, and crimped for firm retention.

The standard # 5001s00605 fractional dial is used in stationary tanks. If the gauge is to be used in a mobile tank, a # 5002s00605 dampened fractional dial should be used. Other dials, calibrated in gallons or percentage, can be supplied on special order at extra cost. Field replacement of dials can be done without draining the tank by simply removing the dial screws, aligning a new dial and re-installing the screws, if needed.
