Alcogage has been developed for the purpose of measuring alcohol levels in bulk storages and transportation facilities. When the product is thick, as in the case of furnace or lubricating oils, there’s no difficulty whatever in reading the level of the tape or rod to which it has reached. Solvents like ethanol, methanol and other alcohols do not leave sufficient trace on a perfectly clean gadget to allow readings to be made.
The Alcogage Alcohol Level Finder is specially made for this operation, in as much as, it visibly retains the alcohol level on the dipping gadget by forming a distinct horizontal line accompanied by a sharp contrasting colour change.
An alcohol-reactive brownish coloured paste giving instant colour change to blue on contact with alcohol. It is unaffected by moisture and does not affect the product tested.
Apply thinly and evenly on the dipping gadget (making sure surface is clean and free from traces of oil), 8-10 cm on either side of the anticipated alcohol level.
Introduce gadget vertically till the coated end touches the tank bottom. Hold steady for 1 second.
Withdraw gadget immediately. Observe for sharp blue horizontal demarcation representing the alcohol level.
