JOWA USA is innovative.

With its innovative resistance-tape technology, JOWA USA provides reliable level gauging solutions for a diverse and demanding mix of industrial, municipal and marine applications, including power plants, refineries, aquariums, wastewater facilities and cargo, ballast, draft, fuel, oil and water tanks aboard a wide range of vessels.

Commonly known as Metritape, this non-mechanical, continuous level sensor offers clear advantages over other level technologies, especially in thick, sticky liquids that cause mechanical level gauges to seize, and in agitated tanks and open channels where surface waves and floating debris cause conventional level gauges to give false level readings. With over 25,000 units installed throughout the world, the Metritape resistance-tape level sensor is a proven success with high user acceptance and customer loyalty.

JOWA USA is committed.

JOWA USA is committed to providing cost-effective, reliable and low-maintenance level gauging solutions. With its line of Metritape resistance-tape liquid level gauges, pressure transmitters, non-contact ultrasonic level sensors for liquid applications, pump controller packages and single and multi-tank instruments and displays, JOWA USA fulfills the demanding application requirements of industrial, municipal and marine customers worldwide.
