Mini Cryogenic Level Overview

The many features available on our standard model 1516 have been stripped out to provide you with a low-cost, OEM version that will fit your budget. It's the same rugged design, but smaller, with fewer features and offers big savings.

Orange Research mini cryogenic level gauges and transmitters are popular in applications that require lower costs, such as on CO2 beverage tanks and many smaller liquid cylinders. Lightweight, with a smaller profile, our mini cryo level gauges and transmitters provide an economical solution for smaller tank level measure.

Tank Level Applications:

  • Liquid Cylinders
  • Beverage Tanks
  • Microbulk & Bulk Tank Telemetry

Same Rugged Cryo Level Gauge Design

Our model 1020 "mini" cryogenic level gauges are built from machined blocks of metal, just like the standard sized models. Made of anodized aluminum, they withstand pressures to 1000psi and the same difficult weather conditions.

This unique design also incorporates the same frictionless magnetic movement found in the larger 1516 models, so they handle shock and vibration during transport as well as abuse the cylinders may take.

Orange Research Gauges vs. Float Gauges

We often receive calls from people who are fed up with cheaper plastic float gauges that crack, have linkage problems or simply stop working for a number of reasons. Often the float gauge tubes are found to be bent, at the top of the tank or within the tank, which immediately renders them inoperable.

The top of many liquid cylinders are relatively fragile. Components protrude from the tank leaving them susceptible to damage caused by bumps, blows or careless abuse. The tank handling ring does little to protect these components. Sometimes costly elaborate covers that limit readability are even placed on the floatgauges to protect the fragile components. We hear this over and over again from many tank users and tank manufacturers. Many companies are designing out the floats for a reliable 1020 model which can withstand the abuse and difficult transport conditions.

Mini Cryogenic Level Gauge Features

Our 1020 cryogenic level gauge models come with a 25mm or 70mm dial. The 25mm dial is a red/green arc dial that tells you when it's time to call for a tank refill. The 70mm dial offers a number of calibrated points to give greater detail on the amount of liquid in the tank.

A popular scale for the 70mm dial has marks of E, ¼, ½, ¾ and F…like a car gas tank. This is an easy-to-read low cost indicator.


A level transmitter output of 0-5Volts or 4-20mA is available on gauge models. We also offer a stand-alone transmitter with no indicator.
