The system is approved by all the major classification societies. LEVELMASTER is one of the most precise and flexible electro pneumatic level-gauging systems available.
LEVELMASTER H8, our electro-pneumatic system, can handle all tanks, onboard vessels and offshore vessels, including mud tanks and brine tanks. The system is type-approved by all the major classification societies.
A Kockum Sonics whistle is not only a high-quality design; it also contains the experience of more than 1 million TYFON installations. Audibility is determined not simply by the strength of sound emanating from the whistle – much more is entailed to overcome absorption, distortion and local noise.
Kockum Sonics offers complete installation, including air-driven whistles, electric-driven whistles and electronic whistles. In addition, we offer a wide range of acccessories such as bell and gong, signal automation, and light.
The TYFON fulfils all current IMO and national authority regulations.
