Cryogenic gases, such as oxygen, nitrogen or argon, are used for a wide variety of applications and processes in industry, research, medical science and catering. The gases are liquefied by cooling them down to temperatures as low as –196 °C to separate them into their primary gas elements. The considerably lower volume achieved by liquefying the gases makes them easier to transport and store.
Situations requiring an immediate response can occur in tank farms, for example when the filling level is too low, the tank overflows, the operating pressure is too high or too low, or when the vaporizer is overloaded. Immediate notifications that such parameters are outside their permissible ranges make it easier to remedy faults early on. In addition, safe operation is ensured and logistics are optimized.

The Media 7 Differential Pressure Meter and the SAM Connect gateway are suitable for wireless connection to SAM TANK MANAGEMENT. This ensures safe data exchange all across the world, polling of states, monitoring of limits and operation of Media devices.
Additionally, the Media 7 Differential Pressure Meter and the SAM Connect gateway function as a hub, which can connect up to four Media devices to SAM TANK MANAGEMENT and as a result, monitor several tank farms at the same time.
