This range of Hydrostatic sensors is suitable for ATEX applications such as Kerosene and Petroleum
Tanks using these sensors must be vented to atmosphere. ATEX EexiaIIcT4 Rated & IECEx
(For non vented tanks see D11 and DPE5 probes)
These tank sensors operate from 9 to 28 volts dc and provide a linear 4-20 milliamp output proportional to the sensor range. The sensor face is ceramic, and the elastomer seal is FKM
There are a number of options here.
A12 is a 0-3 meter Tank sensor with 10 meters Cable. ATEX certified.
A14 is a 0-5 meter Tank sensor with 10 meters Cable, ATEX certified.
A16 is a 0-10 meter Tank sensor with 10 meters Cable, ATEX certified.
A18 is a 0-20 meter Tank sensor with 20 meters Cable. ATEX Certified.
A20 is a 0-30 meter Tank sensor with 30 meters Cable, ATEX Certified.
Note, for Tanks with Vapour recovery, see the D11 - D12 sensor family. (Choose Petrol fluid)
These sensors can be used in most liquid media such as
Petrol ( vented tanks)

Q/ Do I need to use an ATEX sensor in a Diesel Tank (2016+)
A/ If your risk assessment results in there being a potential for 52 degrees C conditions, and a "Mist" spray of diesel then the answer is Yes. If storage is lower than 52 Degrees C then No
Q/ Do I need to use an ATEX sensor in a Kerosene Tank.
A/ Kerosene has a flash point of approx 38 DEgrees C. If there is a chance the product / vapour above the product could reach 38 Degrees C then Yes. (We would suggest this is quite possible in a metal tank in the sunshine in the UK and Europe.
