Moscap Engineering Releases a Propane Liquid Level Indicator, the GasCheck

Share Article

Thanks to propane-powered patio heaters, fire pits, fireplaces, and fire tables, outdoor living and grilling now extends well beyond Labor Day. But since it’s tough to tell how much gas is in a propane tank, the fire often goes out just when you least expect it – which, on a chilly fall night, means the outdoor fun is over.

The Gas Check

From high-tech gadget geeks to backyard barbecuers, outdoor enthusiasts, RVers, tailgaters and campers, anyone who relies on propane cylinders to fuel grills, patio heaters, firepits and other equipment will find this useful and affordable.

A new study by the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association shows 62% of Americans use their grills year-round, up six percent since 2009. So how can you avoid running out of propane gas on a frigid fall evening? Moscap Engineering proudly releases a new product to accurately determine liquid propane levels.

The GasCheck from Moscap Engineering, is a new device that allows users to determine exactly how much gas is in a propane tank before it runs dry. To operate, the rubberized tip of the pen-sized GasCheck is simply pressed against the outer wall of the tank at a 90-degree angle. It emits a high-tech ultrasonic signal to determine the liquid levels in the tank, signaling with a red light that there is no liquid at that level or a green light to indicate liquid is present at that level.

“As people use more and more propane-fueled products on their patio, it becomes impractical to keep a spare filled tank for each one,” says Thomas Tarantin, president/CEO of Moscap Engineering. “Shaking your tank or banking on temperature based products to determine the level of gas in your tank is not a reliable way to determine your gas level. The Gas Check liquid level indicator lets you monitor the propane level of all your tanks to prevent unexpected run-outs.”

GasCheck is powered by only two watch batteries. Intrinsically safe, GasCheck can be used in conjunction with flammable gases and complies with EU EMC Directive 2004/108/EG. Its readings are consistent regardless of external temperatures or weather conditions. GasCheck, which comes in a sleek cyan blue finish, has a suggested retail price of $49.95 – half the price of similar propane-level testing products in the marketplace. GasCheck is manufactured in Germany and distributed in the USA by Moscap Engineering, an affiliate of Tarantin Industries, Inc.
