OPW, a Dover Company and a leader in fluid-handling solutions, has acquired VisiLevel, a fluid gauging system from MechTronic, based in Leeds, United Kingdom.
OPW will manufacture VisiLevel at its facility in Nieuw-Vennep, the Netherlands, expanding its fluid transfer product and technology offerings to its global customers.
The VisiLevel gauging system is both ATEX- and IECEx-approved, meeting international safety requirements for workplaces and equipment used in explosive atmospheres. The system accurately identifies a tanker’s contents by measuring the volume, temperature, density and color. When used in conjunction with a fleet and order management system, such as StockSmart, VisiLevel’s patented system can provide a complete live audit trail of all product movements.
“VisiLevel works to help prevent fuel theft and contamination, as well as improve driver safety,” said Edwin Smit, managing director, OPW EMEA Fluid Transfer Group.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
