Oil condition monitoring

An insurance policy to keep hungry pizza ovens working

One of the country’s largest manufacturers of own label chilled pizza, with a 43% market share, relies on high production availability to meet the freshness and just-in-time delivery requirements of its customers. The costs - and reputational damage as a reliable supplier - of unplanned downtime and the consequent supply disruption are so significant that the company is willing to invest in protecting both its reputation and profits.

Why choose the Gill 7014 Water Utilities Sensor?

Why choose the Gill 7014 Water Utilities Sensor?

Measuring liquid levels in water utilities applications with a sensor that is immersed in the fluid seems counter intuitive for accurate and dependable measurement. The unique and innovative Gill 7014 sensor turns this view on its head with its non-stick maintenance free coating. Here we take a quick look at the key benefits the sensor offers. 

Sometimes you have to get down and dirty to achieve the best results.

Helping a utility company clean up in the water supply industry.

Optimising the flocculation process to ensure maximum effectiveness requires that the volumes of water being treated is known. By combining the dimensions of the flocculation tank with an accurate and reliable water level measurement, Gill helped a US water company improve water quality whilst reducing their costs.

5 benefits of conductive over ultrasonic sensors for water utilities level measurement.

Measuring tank levels in wastewater processing is a difficult task to carry out with repeated accuracy and reliability. Liquids containing contamination and suspended solids suggests that the best option for measuring liquid levels is to use a sensor that does not come into contact with the fluid itself, such as Ultrasonics, to try to minimise the potential of false reading caused by contamination build-up or corrosion.

However, the 7014 conductive sensor from Gill Sensors & Controls is challenging the assumption that non-contact is the best answer to the seemingly intractable problem of reliable level measurement.

First we take a quick look at 5 benefits of the conductive sensor and then some of the comparative drawbacks of ultrasonic devices.

Railway Coolant Level Sensor

Railway Coolant Level Sensor

Gill Sensors & Controls was approached because it offered durable and accurate capacitive liquid level sensors. The sensors are designed using solid-state technology with no moving parts and a tolerance of high temperatures which gives these sensors the reliability to meet the service specification of the locomotive.

Class 1 Powerboat Level Sensor

Class 1 Powerboat Level Sensor

The shock loads in Class 1 powerboat racing are so severe that the liquid level sensors supplied with the ballast tanks were only lasting 1 - 2 races. Read how, by fitting Gill liquid level sensors, the service life of the sensors went from weeks to 8 years.

Gill Sensors digs in with the British Army.

The Terrier is a multi-function armoured digger, designed and built in the United Kingdom, to provide a wide variety of roles including obstacle and mine clearance, route opening and maintenance, digging-in, excavation and general engineer tasks.

Weighing 30 tonnes, Terrier can still reach speeds of almost 50mph. To ensure it can be used both night and day and provide operators with a full 360° surveillance capability, it is fitted with five on-board cameras and thermal imaging technology.

Potentially operating in combat zones - either with a crew or via remote control - dependable reliability is essential in such demanding and severe environments. Monitoring and controlling the sophisticated systems requires sensors that will also continue to function and provide reliable outputs in these challenging conditions.
