KROHNE level production and marketing We offer a comprehensive and versatile range of level gauges and level
facilities are located in Germany, France, switches for level measurement.
England, the United States and other count- KROHNE level products are found in all industries, in all types of storage
ries for a variety of reasons. Primarily to gain tanks and silos, in hazardous areas, onshore and offshore as well as on
an international edge in applications. tanker ships, road and rail transporters.
We make our products globally applicable. Implementation of various measuring principles, advanced technology
The latest in quality assurance and a parti- and stringent quality control procedures have produced measuring
cularly intense KANBAN production help us instruments which guarantee high accuracy even under extreme

to a few days for regular products and only a (140°C) to the storage of liquefied gases; from tanks on oceangoing
few weeks for specials. ships to storage tanks in nuclear power stations.
Our experience in the industry enables us to adapt to a wide variety of
applications in every industry. You can count on KROHNE for accurate,
reliable measurements, even under the most difficult conditions, all at
an affordable price.

KROHNE level measuring instruments meet the requirements of EMC


guidelines and CE directives. All factories are certified to ISO 9001.
Official approvals are available for many of our devices as follows:
The KROHNE Strategy
● FM and ’Ex’ certificates of conformity
KROHNE is present in almost every plant
● Approval as part of an overfill protection system
