6700 Series Gauge

Fixed Length Magnetic Gauges

Application

Measures gasoline or diesel fuel levels in tanks on trucks, boats, generators, recreational vehicles, and other applications.

General Information & Features

These top mounting magnetic liquid-level gauges are built to the high standards of all Rochester designed instruments. The construction permits the replacement of dials when necessary without releasing fumes or liquid to the atmosphere.

Both available dials are fractional and silicone-dampened, and are easily replaced by removing and reinstalling two screws. Rochester's rugged gear drive incorporates shrouded, stainless-steel, beveled gears designed to work out any loose particles that might affect gear function. Sealing between the gauge and the tank is achieved through the use of the 0015-00423 Buna-N gasket.

6741 Large Alnico Direct-reading dial or TwinSite® sender.
Choice of 0-30, 0-90, 240-30 Ohms
