In order to select the right one, you need to know:

  • What is being measured or sampled

  • Its chemical composition

  • What type and size of container it is in

  • In what unit of measure you want to see the results

BASCO offers a wide selection of Gauges and Samplers including:

  • A gauge stick is a very simple gauge made of wood and is marked in gallons that are calibrated for measuring the level in a 55-gallon steel drum.

  • A simple pop-up gauge indicates when your container is full, to prevent over filling

  • An Ultrasonic Gauge is a battery operated digital gauge that needs to be programmed to the size of your drum whether you wish to measure in gallons or liters.

  • Samplers are designed to take a sample of your product for analysis. BASCO also offers a selection of sampling bags in which to send your sample for laboratory testing. 

  • Sampling a liquid product is part of the quality control process. It is important to know the chemical composition of the product to be sampled. Knowing the chemical composition of the liquid will allow you to determine whether the wetted parts (parts that are in direct contact with the liquid) will be chemically compatible with the sampler.
