Steaua se judecă la TAS cu Inter Milano pentru jucătorul Ionuţ Radu


Fotbalistul in varsta de 26 de ani si-a amintit de meciul nebun dintre FC Botosani si Farul Constanta, scor 4-4, atunci cand el reusise egalarea pentru constanteni in minutul 94, desi in minutul 90 botosanenii au inscris pentru 4-3.

Petre Ivanovici este la FC Botosani de doi ani de zile si este cotat la 400.000 de euro.

Reporter: La ce varsta ai calcat pentru prima oara pe un teren de fotbal?

Petre Ivanovici: La 8 ani am fost prima oara. M-a dus cel mai buna prieten al meu la Auto Timisoara si de atunci nu am lipsit aproape la niciun antrenament. Mergeam in fiecare zi la antrenament. Era foarte aproape terenul de mine, la fel si scoala. Bine, mai mult stateam la fotbal decat la scoala.

Adica mai fentai orele de curs...

Nu, nu. Nu chiuleam de la scoala. Dimineata avea cursuri, iar dupa-amiaza si pana seara stateam pe teren.

Ce a urmat dupa Auto Timisoara?

Pana la varsta de 17 ani am jucat pentru Auto. La 17 ani am avut un meci amical intrei Auto Timisoara si CFR Timisoara, care atunci erau in Liga a II-a. La CFR era antrenor domnul Alin Artimon si am jucat bine in acel meci. La finalul partidei m-au intrebat daca vreau sa merg din vara la ei si am acceptat. Am debutat la CFR Timisoara (foto dreapta) intr-un meci cu Ariesul Turda, atunci cand am jucat 30 de minute. Am reusit sa ne salvam de la retrogradare. Dupa un sezon petrecut la CFR am mers la formatia Alto Gradimento Albina, care evolua atunci in Liga a III-a. Am facut un tur de sezon foarte bun, iar eu eram juniorul din teren.

Pe ce post jucai atunci?

Jucam fundas dreapta. De mic am jucat fundas dreapta.

Ce a urmat?

La finalul sezonului s-a facut un top trei in Liga a III-a cu cei mai buni juniori. Pe prima pozitie era George Tucudean, apoi Razvan Trandu, iar pe locul trei eram eu. Fostul meu presedinte de la Auto Timisoara a discutat cu echipa Dunakanyar-Vác FC din liga secunda din Ungaria si m-a trimis sa dau probe acolo. Am jucat in doua meciuri si m-au luat. Am evoluat timp de 1 an si jumatate, jucand in 43 de meciuri. Am primit si o diploma acolo pentru cele 9 goluri marcate. In Ungaria am jucat pentru prima data mijlocas dreapta. Dupa primul sezon ungurii m-au trimis in probe la echipa Lechia Gdańsk, din prima liga poloneza. Am jucat in cateva meciuri, insa a picat transferul. 

Dupa aventura din Ungaria ai revenit in tara la Farul.

Da. Dupa ce am plecat din Ungaria am revenit acasa si din nou presedintele clubului Auto Timisoara a discutat cu cei de la Farul Constanta si am plecat la ei cu doua saptamani inainte sa inceapa campionatul. Am jucat un meci amical si am evoluat foarte bine.

Cu patru zile inainte sa inceapa campionatul am semnat cu Farul. In primul sezon am bifat toate meciurile. Nu am fost rezerva si nu am fost suspendat sau accidentat. Am avut 9 goluri si 11 pase de gol. A fost cel mai bun an al meu la Farul. Imi amintesc de meciul cu FC Botosani, scor 4-4, cand am marcat in minutul 94 golul egalizator.


Am stat acolo trei ani, apoi ne-am despartit pentru ca erau probleme financiare.
(Ivanovici a petrecut 3 ani la Farul Constanta)

Si atunci a sunat telefonul de la Cornel Sfaiter?

Da. Am incheiat contractul cu Farul si am venit acasa. Am mai avut ceva ofrte, dar m-a sunat domnul Cornel Sfaiter si m-a intrebat daca vreau sa vin si i-am zis ca da. Eram la piscina cu prietenii si nici nu stiam cine ma suna. (rade). Mi-a zis ca in doua zile trebuie sa fiu la Botosani.

Nu ai crezut ca e o gluma?

Ba da. Nu cunosteam numarul si nu stiam nimic.

Spuneai ca ai mai avut oferte. Tot din Liga 1?

Nu. Din liga secunda si mi-am zis ca ori merg in Liga 1, ori plec in strainatate.

Ce a urmat?

In doua zile am ajuns la Botosani. Am facut 15 ore cu trenul. Dimineata la ora 5 am ajuns in Botosani si la ora 10 trebuia sa plecam in cantonament. Era domnul Leo antrenor. Dupa 4 zile am semnat contractul si de atunci sunt aici.

(Petre Ivanovici intr-un meci amical cu Dinamo Kiev)

Ti-ai facut debutul intr-un meci cu Gaz Metan, scor 0-3. Cum a fost?

Da. Cand am intrat era deja 2-0 sau 3-0. A urmat meciul cu Petrolul unde am fost titular si am pierdut si acolo cu 4-1. A fost un debut nu tocmai placut, dar dupa asta ne-am revenit. 

Cum a fost experienta din Europa League?

A fost ceva foarte frumos ce nu am mai trait. Nici nu ma gandeam ca voi ajunge sa joc in preliminariile Europa League, dar in viata este posibil orice. Am reusit sa si marchez cu Tskinvali la primul meci in aceasta competitie. Sper sa mai am astfel de meciuri.

Parintii tai au fost vreodata pe Municipal?

Nu au fost niciodata. Doar la Timisoara cand jucam atunci vin si ei, dar si prietenii mei. Sunt fani FC Botosani. Dupa meciul castigat aici cu 6-1 erau foarte fericiti, mai ales ca jucasem foarte bine, la fel si anul trecut cand am marcat pentru 1-1.

Treci printr-o perioada buna acum. Gol si pase de gol, penalty obtinut cu Voluntari. Cum e?

Da. La penalty eu am vrut sa centrez, dar i-am lovit pe ambii fundasi centrali in mana. Trec printr-un moment bun. Sper sa mai marchez. Nu vreau sa ma opresc aici.

Cum explici perioada ta cu Cristi Pustai pe banca? Nu ai prea jucat.

Chiar nu stiu. Cand a venit la echipa m-a folosit de cateva ori din postura de rezerva. Am si marcat 3 golori. In retur am jucat mai putin, iar in Play-Out deloc. Chiar nu stiu de ce pentru ca am jucat bine, mai marcam goluri si am dat pase de gol. Intr-un singur meci am fost titular, cel cu Iasi. 

Cum ai descrie tu orasul Botosani? Sunt multi care privesc cu alti ochi aceasta zona.

Nu este nicio diferenta intre marile orase si Botosani. Este un oras curat, cu aer curat. Nu sunt cladiri daramate. Nu am avut nicio problema pana acum. M-am acomodat repede. Poti sa iesi sa te distrezi daca ai cu cine. Ai restaurante, ai tot ce-ti trebuie.

Ce alte pasiuni mai ai?

Imi place sa joc tenis de camp si tenis cu piciorul. Imi place sa ascult muzica, pentru ca ma linisteste. Ma joc Play Station in timpul liber. Mai merg la sala de forta de doua ori pe saptamana cand sunt liber. Ies in oras cu prietenii.

Cu dragostea cum stai?

Cu dragostea? (rade) Nu am pe nimeni. Sunt singur. Inca nu am gasit pe cineva.

Fostul mijlocas al echipei FC Botosani, Petre Ivanovici, legimitat in prezent la FC Voluntari, a vorbit pentru site-ul Stiri.Botosani.ro despre intalnirea de vineri seara cu botosanenii.

Acesta a tinut sa-i multumeasca presedintelui clubului, Cornel Sfaiter, pentru i-a dat sansa de a juca in prima liga si spune ca partida va fi foarte dificila.

"In primul rand trebuie sa-i multumesc domnului Sfaiter ca mi-a dat aceasta sansa de a juca in Liga 1. Va fi un meci special pentr mine. Stim ca va fi o partida dificila, pentru ca ei vin dupa o victorie cu CFR Cluj si au un moral bun, dar eu imi doresc sa castigam acest joc. Nu este nici un atu faptul ca stiu cum pregateste domnul Leo Grozavu meciurile, pentru ca echipa care este mai in forma si mai determinata la ora jocului, aceea va castiga. Am urmarit meciul cu CFR Cluj si FC Botosani e la fel de puternica ca si anul trecut. Este o echipa unita si din punct de vedere fizic sta cel mai bine din Liga 1.", ne-a declarat Petre Ivanovici.

Petre Ivanovici a ajuns la FC Botosani in anul 2014, de la Farul Constanta, bifand 53 de meciuri in tricoul botosanenilor. A plecat in aceasta vara la FC Voluntari, liber de contract.

9 goluri a marcat Ivanovici pentru FC Botosani

400.000 de euro este valoarea lui Ivanovici pe transfermarkt.com

Schimbări importante în lotul Farului

Golgheterul Sorin Chițu a fost ofertat de FC Brașov
Candidată la promovarea în prima ligă, FC Farul Constanța va relua pregătirile pentru partea a doua sezonului luni, 18 ianuarie, antrenorul Constantin Gache chemându-și elevii la ora 10.30, la stadionul din str. Primăverii. Față de lotul folosit în finalul anului trecut, se anunță schimbări importante, mai ales la capitolul achiziții. Astfel, doi dintre jucătorii care au pus umărul la promovarea celor de la Săgeata Năvodari în prima ligă, mijlocașul Ovidiu Vezan și fundașul central Florin Popa, au ajuns la un acord de principiu cu gruparea de pe litoral. Cei doi au evoluat ultima oară la Delta Tulcea, de unde FC Farul ar putea să-l achiziționeze și pe mijlocașul Marius Tigoianu, toți fiind liberi de contract. „Cu Vezan și Popa s-a discutat deja și am ajuns la o înțelegere. În privința lui Tigoianu, urmează ca antrenorul Constantin Gache să decidă”, a spus președintele clubului constănțean, Auraș Brașoveanu. Pe lista jucătorilor doriți de FC Farul se mai află doi jucători din Liga 1, mijlocașii Dinu Todoran și George Călințaru, ambii de la FC Voluntari. Primul a mai evoluat pentru constănțeni în perioada 2004-2008, are 37 de ani și în prima parte a sezonului a prins 16 meciuri în prima ligă, marcând un gol. În schimb, Călințaru, în vârstă de 26 de ani, a mai fost la FC Farul în sezonul 2012/2013 și a bifat doar patru prezențe pentru FC Voluntari în acest campionat.
La capitolul plecări sunt mai multe semne de întrebare, existând varianta pierderii unor titulari indiscutabili. Astfel, golgheterul Sorin Chițu este curtat insistent de o altă formație din liga secundă, FC Brașov, în timp ce fundașul Doru Bratu s-a prezentat deja la pregătirile echipei Rapid București. „Eu cred că vor fi prezenți amândoi la reunirea lotului, mai ales că au contract cu noi până în vară, cu renegociere financiară în această iarnă”, a explicat Brașoveanu. Nici în privința unui eventual cantonament montan nu s-a luat o decizie clară. „Am văzut că multe echipe din liga secundă au ales să facă stagiul de pregătire pe plan local. S-ar putea să facem și noi la fel, ținând cont de condițiile de care dispunem la propria bază sportivă, dar și de condițiile meteo”, a declarat Brașoveanu.

Academia Farul Constanța organizează selecție pentru grupele de copii născuți în anii 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 și 2010. Selecția se adresează copiilor din municipiul Constanța, dar și celor din județul Constanța. „Pentru relații și informații aveți la dispoziție numărul de telefon 0721.08.26.83 (Lucian Marinof) sau vă așteptăm la sediul nostru din Strada Primăverii zilnic între orele 9.00 și 16.00”, spun reprezentanţii Academiei. „FC Farul și-a tras mereu seva din sau de lângă mare. Cei mai mari jucători pe care Farul i-a avut au fost constănțeni. Credem că putem construi o Academie puternică, cu jucători din Constanța și din împrejurimi. Ne gândim și la un program județean de descoperire a tinerelor talente”, a declarat Lucian Marinof, directorul centrului de copii și juniori de la Academia Farul.

Nu spera si nu ai teama,
Ce e val ca valul trece;
De te-ndeamna, de te cheama,
Tu ramâi la toate rece."
O seară liniștită sa aveți!



Daniel Drozd Danke Marcelo, ich wünsche dir alles Gute bei Celta Vigo. Wir werden dich nie vergessen



Bruno Labbadia abschließend: "Unter diesen Voraussetzungen wird die Rückrunde eine große Herausforderung für uns. Wir können nicht sagen, dass hier alles gut gelaufen ist. Wir sind gefordert, die Dinge in die richtige Richtung zu lenken."

SUPER FAST stealth attack boat for the US military and Navy

Another great idea for the us military and us navy . This fast attack stealth boat will make a difference. GHOST is a super-cavitating surface craft which is able to achieve 900 times less hull friction compared to a conventional watercraft and is developed by US Citizens for the US Navy at no cost to the US government for providing superior protection to US service personnel. The craft was built by Juliet Marine Systems. The secrecy orders on the project were removed on 11 August 2011[1]

Design
The Ghost uses a gyro-stabilized dual-pontoon supercavitating hull to run at top speed through 10-foot seas. Called small waterplane-area twin-hull (SWATH), it is controlled by 22 computer-controlled underwater control surfaces. When at rest or moving slowly, the Ghost sits in the water on its centerline module. At eight knots or faster, the high-grade marine aluminum buoyant hulls lift the vessel and achieve full stability. Propulsion on the prototype is provided by T53-703 turboshaft engines, with the company planning to replace them with the General Electric T700 turboshaft. The Ghost has achieved speeds of over 30 knots, and is being tested to 50 knots. It can perform several different missions including anti-surface warfare (ASuW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW), and mine countermeasures (MCM): ASuW armament consists of the M197 20mm rotary cannon and launch tubes that expel exhaust downward between the struts of the SWATH hulls, concealing and dissipating the thermal signature of the launch for BGM-176B Griffin missiles and Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System rockets, with an electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensor and radar; an ASW version could be equipped with an EO/IR sensor, radar, sonobuoy launch tubes, a dipping sonar, and four aft-firing torpedo tubes; an MCM version could be equipped with a towing boom to lower and raise two towed mine-hunting sonars, such as the Kline 5000 or Raytheon AN/AQS-20A. The current Ghost costs $10 million per copy, is crewed by 3-5 sailors, and can be partially disassembled to fit in a C-17 Globemaster III for transport if needed. It is designed for fleet protection for navies with few blue-water needs but require a small and affordable craft in large numbers for near-shore maritime border patrol and defense missions; it is being offered to international customers including Bahrain, Qatar, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, and Singapore. High-level discussions have been held with a foreign nation interested in 25 Ghosts for a potential $300 million sale. Juliet Marine is also offering a scaled-up version of the Ghost to the U.S. Navy as part of their re-evaluation of the Littoral Combat Ship program. Plans are to build a corvette-sized Ghost of 150 ft (46 m) in length or more costing about $50 million per vessel, six times cheaper than the $300 million per-ship cost of a current Freedom-class and Independence-class littoral combat ship. One impediment to the U.S. Navy procuring the Ghost is the desire of senior Navy leaders to have large-hulled oceangoing vessels that can also perform inshore operations rather than smaller craft specialized for inshore missions.[2][3]

Juliet Marine Systems is a maritime technology think tank that is developing innovative solutions for naval and commercial applications. We seek to assure fleet force protection in response to small vessel terrorist attacks against our Navy and coalition ships. There is a clear and present danger of these tactics being used against the U.S. Navy throughout the world and in our home ports. These same innovative technologies, applied to commercial needs, will provide a significant decrease in transit time and increase in energy efficiency, resulting in the savings of thousands of gallons of fuel daily.

Our Navy is in a revolutionary period of change. Historic military tactics combined with modern materials and technology present a formidable fleet protection challenge for our Navy today. One of the greatest threats to our Navy is low tech vessel attacks with conventional explosives, as seen on October 12, 2000, when the USS Cole was attacked, killing 17 sailors and wounding 39 others and in the continued success of pirates. As a maritime systems think tank, Juliet Marine Systems provides offensive, defensive and ISR solutions that are developed in a skunk works operation able to rapidly invent and construct needed technologies and systems for the Navy and armed forces. We have already developed a surface variant of a super cavitating craft and are planning to apply our unique technology in a UUV prototype.

While the GHOST is a surface vessel, the hydrodynamics of the twin submerged buoyant tubular foils are also a test bed for Juliet Marine's next planned prototype, a long duration UUV. The GHOST is a revolutionary proprietary technology vessel platform that will assure force protection through stealth fighter/attack capabilities along with integrated situation awareness.

SUPER FAST US Navy M80 Stiletto Stealth Ship
The United States Navy (USN) is the naval warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the seven uniformed services of the United States.
The M80 Stiletto is a prototype naval ship manufactured by the M Ship Company as an operational experiment for The Pentagon's Office of Force Transformation. It is notable for its Pentamaran hull design and carbon fiber construction, as well as its networked architecture.
The M80 Stiletto is a U.S. Navy vessel designed for combat in littoral waters. It takes the name from the Italian Stiletto, a short knife or dagger.

The 88-foot (27 m) long vessel has a notable hull design, an M-shaped hull that provides a stable yet fast platform for mounting electronic surveillance equipment or weapons, or for conducting special operations. The hull design does not require foils or lifting devices to achieve a smooth ride at high speeds in rough conditions. Its shallow draft means the M80 Stiletto can operate in littoral and riverine environments and potentially allows for beach landings. The faceted design suggests that the vessel has a low radar signature (i.e., stealth) in the frontal aspect and somewhat so from the sides.

The M80 Stiletto is equipped with four Caterpillar, Inc. C32 1232 kW (1652 HP) engines yielding a top speed in excess of 50 knots (90 km/h) and a range of 500 nautical miles (900 km) when fully loaded. It can be outfitted with jet drives for shallow water operations and beaching.

It has a topside flight deck for launching and retrieving UAVs and a rear ramp that can launch and recover an 11-meter rigid-hull inflatable boat (RIB) or Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV).

It weighs 45 tons unloaded, light enough that it can be hoisted onto a cargo ship, while still able to carry up to 20 tons of cargo. The ship is 88.6 feet (27.0 m) in length, with a width of 40 feet (12 m) and a height of 18.5 feet (5.6 m), yet has a draft of only 2.5 feet (0.8 m).

The M80 Stiletto is the largest U.S. naval vessel built using carbon-fiber composite and epoxy building techniques, which yields a very light but strong hull. The prototype M80 Stiletto is expected to be in use in less than one year. Ships are expected to cost between $6 and $10 million.
Historically, ships have evolved to become narrower and deeper to achieve speed and stability. The M Hull however become wider, because its distinctively wide hull captures the vessel's bow wave and redirects the energy under the hull. The Stiletto's double-M hull enables the craft to achieve an unequaled ride in rough seas at high speed, which is critical for the Navy SEALS and other Special Operations Forces, because it reduces the G-forces and related injuries these personnel are subjected to during training and on missions.

The Stiletto is being tested by the United States Navy SEALs and Special Warfare Combat Crewmen, who operate small, fast craft in the rough littoral seas for which the vessel was designed.
In 2006 and 2007, the Stiletto participated in Trident Warrior exercises, as well as a number of other naval exercises. This included three days of mine-clearing experimentation during Exercise Howler in 2006, when the vessel was operated by the Naval Special Clearance Team-1 (NSCT-1) from the Naval Amphibious Base in Coronado.

A key feature of this vessel is that it can set up a network between a special forces team by launching an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that relays information between the team and boat. The Stiletto can also carry surveillance UAVs to provide reconnaissance for the SEAL team, and, using a clustered supercomputer on board, will be able to send real-time images to the team on shore.

The Stiletto was selected by Time magazine as one of the Best Inventions of 2006 and one of two inventions in the Armed Forces category.[1] San Diego-based CONNECT named the M80 Stiletto as the Most Innovative New Product for 2006 in the General Technology category.

In 2008, the Stiletto deployed on a 70 day mission for USSOUTHCOM as part of a joint agency operation that included the Drug Enforcement Administration and U.S. Coast Guard.[2]

In July 2012, the US Navy deployed a Stiletto to retrieve the NASA Inflatable Reentry Vehicle Experiment 3 (IRVE-3) test article[3] with 3 m (9.8 ft) diameter heat shield which splashed down in the Atlantic Ocean off North Carolina after being launched on July 23 by a sounding rocket from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility. The Stiletto is referred to as a maritime demonstration craft operated by the Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock, Combatant Craft Division, and based at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Ft Story, Va.[4]

Integrated Solutions to Support Safe Cargo Handling Operations


Level Master cargo handling support and tank gauging solutions by Musasino bring together our long experience in marine equipment with state of the art and innovative new systems. From level gauging equipment, through the network architecture and operating software, we have developed and refined streamlined solutions for a wide variety of applications.
Level Master – 11 solutions are founded on the principle of providing support for safe and accurate cargo handling operations. The on-deck gauges provide current conditions to the tank monitoring and cargo planning software applications, giving the crew the information they need when they need it. Operators are immediately alerted to any alarm limits being exceeded or to any failures in the system. Theoperator interface allows straight-forward setting of cargo parameters and alarm points. Cargo planning functions assist the crew in drawing up safe cargo loading and discharging plans through simulations based on current onboard conditions and user input. The operator interface is designed to integrate signals from other manufacturers' equipment as desired, and can facilitate monitoring and control for pumps and valves.

Level Gauges and Alarms

Portable Level Detector

  • • Level Porta air-purge type portable level detector for ballast tanks
  • • Level Cera Portable hydrostatic pressure type level gauge for bunker and ballast tanks
  • Pipeline, Pump & Valve Monitoring & Control
  • Musasino makes full use of frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radar technology in the Level Echo Ace cargo tank gauge. The detector emits microwaves throughout the 10GHz band, calculating the distance to the liquid cargo surface (ullage) from the time it takes to receive the return signal. The built-in processor sends a digital signal directly to the display in the cargo control room, and to the on-deck display if included.

    Key Features & Benefits

    • • FMCW technology
    • • Accurate and reliable
    • • Built-in digital signal processing
    • • Built-in self-diagnostic function
    • • Built-in tank pressure sensor
    • • Small, lightweight
    • • Easy maintenance
    In addition to the tank level gauging function, a tank gas pressure sensor is built in to the housing. Signals from the tank temperature gauge are also processed and sent in a bundle with the other tank information, reducing the amount of wiring needed on deck.
    The housing is small and lightweight, yet designed to endure the harsh conditions found on the decks of tankers. The hoop clamp closure allows easy access when maintenance or inspection is necessary.

    Specifications differ between models in the same line.
  • Level Master Ace (LMA) is the most recent design of our original level gauge. For over 45 years, this gauge has proven to be reliable, accurate and versatile. The choice of materials, features and measuring range allow LMA to be used on a wide range of ships and for a wide variety of applications.

    Key Features & Benefits

    • • Proven accuracy, reliability, and durability
    • • Simple, robust design
    • • Wide range of applications
    • • Range of options and functions
    • • Maximum 40 meter measuring range
    • • Low maintenance
    • • Available self-diagnostic function
    The basic methodology of LMA has not changed much since the first installation, though we have continued to improve the overall design and functionality. A float containing magnets rises and falls along the guide pipe triggering reed switches embedded in the sensor element. Depending on customer requirements, LMA can be fitted with a built-in pressure sensor and built-in temperature sensors, reducing wiring requirements and the need for any further deck penetrations. With various options for float shape and materials, LMA can be applied to a wide range of liquids.

  • air-purge type level gauge

  • Level Aeran 2 (LA2) uses a unique technology to deliver high accuracy ballast tank monitoring efficiently. Rather than the constant flow of air to the purge head used in traditional designs, LA2 uses a series of solenoid valves to regulate air flow and ultimately reduce the amount of air - and energy - needed for accurate level gauging. By intermittently stopping the supply of air, stable pressure is maintained during measurement. An added benefit is that the slightly higher air pressure that follows helps keep the purge head clear of blockage.

    Key Features & Benefits

    • • High accuracy
    • • Low air consumption
    • • Small on-deck and control room footprints
    • • Automated air control and atmospheric pressure adjustments
    • • Built-in self-diagnostics
    We have designed the control box to handle up to 24 tanks, yet still take up little space. Integrating the wiring and air supply pipes, along with the small purge head, has kept the deck space needed for an LA2 installation to a minimum.

  • ultrasonic type independent alarm

  • Level Watch 2 (LW2) was designed as an independent high level and overfill alarm for cargo tanks that would have no moving parts or need calibration for different applications. The detector works by sending an ultrasonic wave between a transmitter and a receiver. When liquid comes between the two, there is a change in the strength of the wave reaching the receiver, and the alarm is triggered.

    Key Features & Benefits

    • • Simple and robust structure
    • • No moving parts
    • • Simple operational testing
    • • Digital signal processing
    • • Standard self-diagnostic function
    • • Wide range of applications
    LW2 works with a range of applications, and is designed to stand up to the harsh conditions found in cargo tanks, such as sloshing and vibration.

  • hydrostatic pressure type level gauge

  • Level Cera (LC) is designed for use in fresh water, sea water and fuel tanks, and as a draft gauge. To combat the corrosive effects of sea water, LC has been given a corrosion-resistant ceramic diaphragm and sensor housing. This helps prolong the operating life and reduce the maintenance requirements. The gauge works by converting the water pressure on the diaphragm in to a level reading. A signal processor in the gauge housing puts out a digital signal to the control room display.

  • Level Watch III

    ultrasonic type water ingress alarm / dryness sensor

  • Level Watch III (LWIII) uses ultrasonic waves to detect the presence of water or other liquids in the cargo holds of bulkers and other dry cargo ships, as well as in other areas where it may be necessary to detect water ingress. Various mounting configurations for LWIII are available, but the basic functions of the detector remain the same. LWIII is mounted at a set point. When water submerges the transmitter and receiver in the probe, there is a change in the ultrasonic wave that reaches the receiver. This change activates the alarm.

    Key Features & Benefits

    • • Robust architecture
    • • Simple design and maintenance
    • • No moving parts
    • • Range of installation configurations
    • Float Switch

      horizontal float type level gauge

    • Float Switch (FS) is a versatile little gauge that has been recently redesigned. The gauge mounts on the sidewall of a tank to provide high or low level indications. Once the level of the liquid in the tank passes the float arm, a magnet in the base of the arm triggers a reed switch in the detector. It is a simple design that requires very little maintenance.

      Key Features & Benefits

      • • Light weight
      • • Simple maintenance
      • • Multiple applications
      FS can be used for fresh water, sea water, chemical and petroleum product applications.
