Process Propane Package
The MCG 1812 Process Propane Package is a revolutionary non-contact level gauging kit for both new and existing propane bullet tanks. The package consists of L&J Engineering's MCG 1800 Process Radar Gauge, a special target float which will be dropped into the stilling well or bridle to ride on the product and a ball valve with a special spool piece to allow for easy maintenance and troubleshooting of the gauge without having to disrupt the tank. The MCG 1800's easy 5-Step Setup Wizards further simplifies setup by allowing you to have the gauge up and operational within minutes.

Process Applications
The MCG 1812 is designed for use with pressurized and atmospheric propane and butane tanks along with similar types of products. The usage of the MCG 1812 is not limited to just propane and butane applications, but it can also be mounted to bullet tanks which have both internal stilling wells and also bullet tanks which have external bridles in applications where the user wants to isolate the level gauge from the product environment. Either way the MCG 1812 configuration can be easily adapted to your specific tank requirements.

Infrared Compatibilities
L&J Engineering's patented Infrared technology provides the ability to setup, calibrate, diagnose and maintain your MCG 1812 package by using the intrinsically safe L&J Engineering MCG 2150 Remote Calibrator, along with the local or remote LCD display with infrared pickup.

Ground Level Display
A ground level display is also available for use with this package, which is identical to the gauge display itself. This will allow full calibration, programming and diagnostic functionality from the ground level using the intrinsically safe MCG 2150 Remote Calibrator.

Multiple Protocol
The standard unit is 24 VDC loop powered with a 2-wire 4-20mA output. Digital HART compliant output is also available as well as; L&J Tankway, Foundation Fieldbus, Profibus and many others.

Input / Output
The MCG 1812 can also accept remote temperature devices such as the MCG 300 3-Wire Remote Spot Temperature Detector or other similar 3-wire RTD's. Up to 4 relay switches can also be provided with the MCG 1812.
