HMG Paints is the UK’s largest independent paint manufacturer, with a specialist portfolio of industrial coatings that are used in many applications including aircraft, commercial vehicles, and canal barges to name a few. Many of the coatings and other additives are solvent-based, and the wide variety of solvent stock is held in two tank farms.  

Before Pulsar Measurement equipment was installed, outdated and unreliable bubbler type level measurement was used with each gauge requiring to be pumped by hand before a reading could be taken.  

Pulsar Measurement was pleased to supply HMG Paints with UltraTWIN controller, each fitted with two chemical resistant ultrasonic transducers which were mounted into the top of each vessel.

The UltraTWIN controllers are mounted in cabinets by each tank farm, protected by Zener barriers. HMG also purchased the optional Modbus interface and Pulsar Measurement UltraScan software so that they can display levels at a local PC, and see at a glance the level and most efficient re-order point for each material.
