Magne-Trac Level Measurement Line

Innovative Level Measurement with Magne-Trac

For oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical, metals and minerals, refining, power generation, aerospace, food processing, and pulp and paper industries operating with products under extreme pressure, temperature, vibration, and highly corrosive or hazardous material, Questtec Solutions Magne-Trac product line provides one of the safest and most economical ways to meet your level measurement requirements.

Minimum Vessel Penetration

Our innovative magnetic level line can be custom-engineered to fit your exact requirements. Constructed of non-magnetic materials, with exotic materials such as Alloy 20 and Hastelloy C as available options, the Magne-Trac line is installed with minimum vessel penetration thanks to the magnet technology.

True Redundancy

Two independent level measurement technologies are used in the Magne-Trac Plus system, by combining the rugged versatility of the original Magne-Trac with our flexible, accurate, and reliable Guided Wave Radar Transmitter inserted into the Bridle-Trac Bypass Chamber.

By using the magnetic gauge as the secondary chamber, the operator has the option to rotate the indicator up to 180 degrees easily in the field. Though the two chambers can be welded or flanged together, we recommend installing valves between the magnetic gauge and bridle chamber to isolate one if necessary.

Distance Level Viewing

Our wide-flag indicator design is constructed of multiple flag each 1.4″ wide to heighten overall viewing capabilities from up to 200 feet. Standard indicators consist of anodized aluminum housing with black and yellow rotating flags and a clear, UV scratch-resistant, poly-carbonate window.

Eliminate Deterioration

The non-corrosive flag materials eliminate problems with deterioration often encountered with standard aluminum flag and stainless steel pins. The UV scratch-resistant, poly-carbonate window eliminates the fragility often encountered with glass while still forming a high-integrity fit. The tightly-sealed housing contains a single-column-wide flag assembly all aligned within an extruded aluminum case.

Fugitive Emissions Valves

Fugitive Emissions (FE) regulations are becoming increasingly strict, and government agencies are focused on valves. According to the EPA, over 60% of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions comes from valves.

Low Emission valves offer significant reduction of harmful gases versus valves with traditional packing. This increases the safety of personnel and reduces the effect on the environment. Read More

ASME and NBIC Certificates

ASME established the Certificate Holder program in 1916. This program gives formal recognition to a company that can fabricate to relevant ASME standards, and permits application of an ASME owned stamp. There are over 6500 Certificate Holders. The Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code Section I has 5 categories:

  • S – Power Boilers
  • A – Assembly of Power Boilers
  • E – Electric Boilers
  • M – Miniature Boiler
  • PP – Pressure Piping
  • V – Boiler Pressure Relief Valves

The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors (NB) offers a similar program to certify companies to repair and/or alter boilers, pressure vessels, and other pressure-retaining items. This Certificate of Authorization is known as the “R” stamp, with the requirements laid out in NB-415, Accreditation of R Repair Organizations. Read More

Positive Material Identification (PMI)

Positive Material Identification (PMI) emerged as a common customer requirement in the 1990’s as X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) instrumentation became mobile. It can be a confusing and misunderstood requirement. This paper is an effort to provide some clarity to the requirement, the cost involved and steps required to comply with customer requirements.

When considering PMI, there are several key factors that must be clarified prior to quotation. Following is an outline of how reduce the requirement to a manageable task. Read More
