Getting the most accurate readings out of any of the WESROC Tank Monitors starts with selecting the correct Rochester R3D dial for the tank gauge. Whenever you replace a dialon the tank, it is important to note the "Before" and "After" dial readings. The dials should read within 5% of each other or further investigation needs to be done. Our Dial Replacement Guide and the Rochester R3D dial cross reference sheet can be found on our on this website. Click on "Products", and then click on "Dial Replacement" or "Dial to R3D Reference" in the drop down. These two documents cover the vast majority of the situationsyou will run into in the field. If your dial is reading more than a few % off, try another dial out of your bag. The magnetic properties of the dials can vary slightly, and sometimes different dials in a bag will read closer to the specific gauge head than others.
When replacing the dials on a Vertical Tank (120 Gal) it is very important to use a dial that is the correct model for Veritcal tanks. Any R3D dial for use of vertical tanks will have "Vertical
Tank" printed in fine print around the outside of the dial face.
Our Large Dial (8" and 4") Transmitters and Large Dial Cellular Tank Monitors use a 3 pin locking connector to mate with the dial sensor pig tails. It is very important to make sure that the
connector alignment tab and all the pins are aligned correctly when connecting these two parts. We have started shipping a small packet of dielectric grease with these products to coat
the pins and sockets of this connector to help keep moisture from affecting the connection if it's not properly seated in a water proof manner. It's good practice to make sure there is a "drip loop" in the sensor cable coming from the dial face to allow water running down this wire to drip off before coming into contact with the cable connector. Water intrusion into this connector can cause false readings and false fills if the pins get wet or corroded.
