MBA Instruments at Fair Trans Tank Germany / HamburgStall D12 Technology for level and conductivity measurement
MBA Instruments GmbH, the level and conductivity measurement technology specialist, is presenting the measuring device MLA1000, the only one of its kind in the world, at the trade fair TANK STORAGE GERMANY from 25 to 26 November 2015. The new conductivity measuring device, installed directly within the pipeline, continuously measures the conductivity of light oils, such as kerosene (Jet A-1) while in flux.
Using this method, the additives infused to prevent electrostatic charging can be controlled in an extremely precise manner and in accordance with the principle ”as much as is necessary and as little as possible”. The conductivity rating of kerosene in a pipeline is, thus, precisely adjusted and is continuously maintained at the value defined. The system has proven itself time and again in tank storage depots and at airports.
Mode of operation:
The MLA1000 measuring device leverages the flow velocity within the pipeline. While there is a relatively strong flow

Installed directly in pipelines, the new MLA1000 constantly measures inline the electric conductivity and the temperature of flowing light oils, for example Jet A-1 kerosene, and is consequently able to control continuously the dosing of additives.
“Utilising the MLA1000 enhances significantly the safety in handling aviation fuel,” declared MBA Instruments CEO Hans-Heinrich Westphal, who added “At high flow speeds and simultaneous low conductivity for example kerosene can be electrostatically charged and ignite.” To prevent this, the conductivity is increased by dosing additives to dissipate the electrostatic charge to the tank or pipeline wall. “Until now conductivity has been measured at longer intervals using either individual laboratory samples or our own hand-held MLA900 device. “The dosed volumes of the required additives were often estimated,” explained Hans-Heinrich Westphal. “Regularly we received enquiries from airports and operators of tank storage and pipeline
