System Features

Accurate measurement of gas from any production area using our unique dielectric constant estimation method.

LNG is made up of methane, ethane, and propane, etc., but the ratio of these gases in LNG varies depending on the region in which the gas is produced. These differences in composition can cause errors in measurements of the liquid level.
Musasino has developed a proprietary dielectric constant estimation method, which uses a unique formula to eliminate the errors caused by differences in composition. Since the calculation is automatic, there is no need to change settings for each loading, making the system easy to use.

The All-in-One concepts takes advantage of digital signal technology for a smart design and reduced cabling.

Various equipment such as level gauges, pressure gauges, and temperature gauges, are necessary for liquid gas measurements. Musasino’s proprietary digital signal processing is applied to unify the signals. One cable is used to send signals to the control box, so the number of cables required for outfitting is reduced.

Simple & Strong In-Tank Structure

Still pipe and thermo-well designed for a long working life.
Structures within the tank need to withstand harsh conditions. Musasino conducted extensive sloshing model simulations to ensure the strength and endurance of system components. The results showed the in-tank structures can withstand over 40 years of sloshing.
