The purpose of this paper is to analyze the function of each part of a tank gauging system and present a reasonable program for selecting components that relate to the system as a whole. At the same time it must be recognized that the maintenance necessary to keep a gauging system in top condition often will not be provided, thus selection of components is directed towards those that will be most likely to survive with the least practical maintenance. Nevertheless, it must be accented that no piece of mechanical equipment can be ignored for months, or even years, and continue to give completely satisfactory service.
