For tanks that need a more versatile solution, there is the Liquidator 2. While it operates on the same principle as the Liquidator, the aluminum indicator is driven by the weighted float and balanced by the counterweight within. With the Liquidator 2, the distance between the Indicator pipe on the outside of the tank, and the point where the cord enters the roof of the tank is variable. The indicator slides freely up and down on the outside of the guide tube.
Accurate Reading & Great Visibility
The Liquidator 2 has an indicator that matches the tank’s liquid level exactly. What you see is what you have in your tank. Graduations can be marked on or beside the guide tube for accurate measurement. As for visibility, it is possible to read the gauge from as far away as 325 feet, day or night. The standard Liquidator 2 gauge features a braided nylon cord with marine-grade Delrin® pulleys.
What kind of tank do you have? Concrete, fiberglass, plastic, timber, corrugated steel, steel panels, round, oval or square? The Liquidator 2 fits them all. In fact, the Liquidator 2 is suitable for tanks up to 10-feet high and any diameter. Longer cords enable the Liquidator 2 to be used on even taller tanks – up to 30-feet high.
The polyethylene float is the only part of the Liquidator 2 that comes in contact with the liquid in your tank. That makes the Liquidator 2 compatible with a wide range of liquids: fertilizer, waste water, molasses, acids, wine, olive oil, chemicals, oils and, of course, plain water.
Along with the above features, which are found in the standard Liquidator, Liquidator 2 has these additional features:
Separate Pulley Housings
Liquidator 2 comes ready to mount on the tank roof close to the edge. The pulley housings can easily be separated and joined by a horizontal length of ½” pipe, if you like. This allows the float to be located well away from the edge or high up on the tank roof, if necessary.
Adaptable to Roof Shapes
Steep roofs can easily be accommodated, thanks to the pivoted pulley housing. Plus, the base of the pulley housing can be readily shaped to conform to roofs with ribs or bulges, shapes that are common to modern plastic tanks.
Guide Pipe & Simple Installation
As the name implies, Liquidator 2 is designed to work with 2” round pipe, which is a common size worldwide. Pipe does not come with the Liquidator 2, but both types are readily available from hardware and plumbing supply stores in either plastic or thin-wall metal. Square tubes, either 2” square thin wall galvanized or aluminum, or the slightly smaller 50mm square tube, also can be used. In each case, mounting is usually carried out using simple tools. Only a few small holes must be drilled in the tank roof. (The only gauge component inside the tank is the float, which easily passes through the manhole).
Insect Proof & Weatherproof
All moving parts of Liquidator 2 are fully enclosed. The only point of entry is where the indicator cord emerges. Tucked up underneath the pulley housing,the cord passes through a close-fitting floating grommet, making it impossible for insects to enter the tank. Liquidator 2 is dust and weatherproof too. For complete security, silicone rubber should be used at the time of installation to ensure that the gauge is fully sealed against the elements – rain, hail, or snow.
You Have Options
Two optional items are available for your Yaktek gauge:
• Longer cords (for tanks up to 30-feet high)
• Mounting bracket for open top tanks
