Easily take level measurements without specialized skills
Level Cera Portable is the world’s first portable level gauge for bunker and ballast tanks. This easy-to-use level gauge continually monitors the liquid level during bunkering, and contributes to the prevention of overflows with fewer man-hours than when only a sounding tape is used.
When using sounding tape to take level measurements on a ship, it is necessary to take multiple measurements due to the ship’s movements. In addition, it requires performing manual calculations, and specialized skills. When bunkering or ballasting the ship, and the liquid level is moving, the level of difficulty increases.
By contrast, Musasino’s Level Cera Portable continually monitors the level, and the average value is automatically calculated and displayed. An accurate level reading is possible without being influenced by factors such as the movement of the ship and changes in the liquid level.

Detecting the Cappuccino Phenomenon Monitoring Fair Bunkering Transactions
In addition to easily taking level measurements, you can also monitor fair bunkering transactions.
The 'cappuccino phenomenon' is when air bubbles are fed in to the fuel during bunkering, inflating apparent volume. But, Level Cera Portable is a pressure-receiving gauge, and so is not influenced by the cappuccino effect, and accurately measures the level. Using a tank table, the exact bunkering capacity can be calculated.
Liquid level measurement is possible in all kinds of scenarios.
With Level Cera Portable, you can easily find the level. Level readings can be taken in a variety of settings, including checking levels on tanks that do not have fixed level gauging equipment during ship construction.
