Protecting the environment improves your profitability!

To reduce waste and extend product lifespans we design and manufacture level products that are built to last and ensure they are maintainable and repairable.  This gives the added benefit of a lower cost of ownership and therefore greater profitability.

Capacitance Switches

Suitable for both liquids and solids, capacitance probes are proven in applications with aggressive contents and those which are prone to media build up occurring.  The switches are reliable for use where vapours occur and also in tanks with agitators.

Easy to install and commission, our range of capacitance probes includes a robust branded version with options limited which enables us to engineer out unnecessary costs to reduce its selling price for the most used applications.  We compliment this with a range of other manufacturers products.

    • Versions for liquids and solids
    • Slurry tanks
    • Sludge silos
    • Bitumen tanks
    • Varnishes, paints & thinners
    • Solid raw materials

Train level measurement, gauges and indicators

To solve a specific problem with access and the lack of height between a fuel tank and the trains body, AMS have modified the head of our approved level sensors to allow fitting in confined spaces. This development also removed the need for the transmitter to be located in a separate box on the side of the tank and allowed the sensor to be wired directly to the indicators, saving significant additional costs in materials and wiring time.

Train level measurement and control

Advances in the way instrumentation can be powered due to processing capabilities at reduced power levels, combined with the ever-continuing miniaturisation of electronics capability, has created the opportunity for rail companies to consider more modern electronic/digital technology as an alternative to the traditional methods for level measurement.
