Ultimate Level Sensing Solution

The OleumTech® OTC Wireless Resistive Level Transmitters with the integral LCD push button interface leverage the company’s flagship level sensing solution for delivering unrivaled performance, reliability, and accuracy in hazardous locations as well as under harsh, extreme environmental conditions.

The OleumTech Resistive Level Sensors offer industry’s leading 3-in-1 monitoring capabilities: product (oil), interface (water), and temperature. The patented sensors are available in both flexible (PTFE) and rigid (316 SS) materials in various custom lengths.

The WT-LL3-T and WT-LL3-DT options are compatible with the 1/4” resolution sensors while the WT-LL3 and WT-LL3-D work with 1/2” resolution sensors. The “D” option provides one discrete input for connecting to a dry contact source.

The ultra-low-powered transmitter and sensor are powered by a replaceable battery pack that provides up to a 10-year life.

Reliable, Scalable, and Safe

The field-proven wireless level transmitter communicates with an assigned wireless gateway within the OTC Wireless Sensor and I/O Network, creating a highly scalable network, accommodating virtually any I/O requirement.

OleumTech Wireless Level Transmitters are certified for use in Class I, Division 1 (Zone 0) hazardous locations.  They are Intrinsically Safe, designed not to cause a spark and can be serviced without being removed from a process.

This product is also available without a local display.

This product is also available in a hardwired version.

Applications

The Resistive Level Sensors are ideal for use as oil level sensors, water level sensors for storage tanks that contain either or both liquid densities. These level instruments are widely used in oil production tank batteries, condensate tanks, water treatment centers, petrochemical and chemical-making plants, wastewater handling and storage facilities, refineries, and power generating plants.
