Four Bolt Gauge for Pressurized Tanks, Columns or Vessels up to 300 PSIG

M6200 Series gauges are widely used to measure liquid levels of fuels, hydraulic fluids, refrigerants, lube oils and cryogenic products in pressurized tanks, columns or vessels up to 300 PSIG [20,7 Bar]. Stainless steel mounting bolts are optional.

General Information & Features
Direct-reading fractional dials, gear actions and aluminum floats are standard models. Remote-reading TwinSite® senders are available for some models. Lever actions are available for centerline mounted models. Nitrile rubber floats are optional. Please refer to instructions on “How to Order” on reverse side of this technical data sheet.

2.For lever action on C/L mounted gauges only, instead of gear action, add prefix ”L” to the model number.
3. Neoprene Senior gasket, part number 15-836.
4. Viton Senior gasket, part number 15-415.
5. Teflon Senior gasket, part number 15-401.

General Specifications*

Gear-action gauges are suitable for top, side, end or angle mounting. Lever-action gauges are suitable for centerline mounting on flat end of tank only.

Accuracy depends upon proper gauge sizing. Junior and Senior dials are ±6%, TwinSite® dials are ±10%. Accuracy may be less for some tank shapes and sizes. Accuracy may be less near full and empty. Accuracy may be less if tank is not level. This gauge is not to be used for filling. All accuracy estimates are expressed as a percent of full scale.

Standard operating temperature range -40°F to 158°F, -40°C to 70°C with optional stainless steel mountin bolts which maybe required for temperatures below -20°F, -29°C.

For high humidity and marine application, painting of exposed portion of gauge, less dial, is recommended.

Passes MIL-S-901 B Naval Standard Shock Test.

Passes MIL-STD-167 Naval Standard Vibration Test.

0.5 watts maximum for TwinSite® versions.

Tank Pressure
Up to 300 PSIG [20.7 Bar] with standard aluminum float and steel mounting bolts; up to 450 PSIG [31 Bar] with standard aluminum float and stainless steel mounting bolts.
