Major Characteristics and Benefits of Permalevel Load Weight by Coltraco

The Load Weigh System offers businesses with a low-cost alternative to continuous fire-suppressant cylinder monitoring. It is capable of monitoring the contents of any number of cylinders and is ideal for CO2 & Marine CO2 Systems. The unit, after being fitted to individual cylinders, closely monitors the weight of fire suppression agent they contain.

Alarms are triggered when the agent mass decreases by 5% or more. The counterweight included in the system falls as a visual signal of leakage or accidental discharge. The system provides an immediate notification if used in conjunction with an infrared sensor or limit switch. These can also be used to monitor system and connect external alarms such as buzzers.

Core Benefits of this Fire Extinguishing Monitoring System

Low Cost: The lowest priced model in Coltraco's Permalevel® range

Fully manageable 'in house': No need for third-party access to high-security sites once the contractor has installed the system

No Power Connection needed: Due to the purely mechanical nature of the system

Characteristics of Fire Suppression System

Little maintenance required: Due the mechanical nature of the system

Immediate notification: Operators are immediately notified of leakage/accidental discharge if used in conjunction with an infrared sensor or limit switch

Simple Installation: This system, which is integrated with liquid level indicator is good for enhancing time efficiency and security as third party access to sites is unnecessary

Invasive to retrofit: Unlike the Permalevel Multiplex and Single Point Systems

No remote monitoring or off-site alerts: Unlike the Permalevel Multiplex and Single Point Systems

Only monitors CO2 type seamless cylinders: Unlike the Permalevel Multiplex and Single Point Systems


CEO Message

Integrity and Science Key to Our Culture of Performance

Dear Coltraco Customers, Strategic Partners and Distributors,

Integrity is our defining value. Performance is its consequence. We understand that our customers have choices, and how we perform determines whether customers choose us. Coltraco’s Code of Ethics does not merely require compliance with laws. It embodies a Commitment to positive behaviours that build trust, promote respect, operate with distinction, with courtesy and global levels of performance, demonstrating our integrity and delivering customer performance.

We honour our commitments, communicate transparently, and act with honour. Ethics are the foundation of our performance culture and our science-based approach. We lead in specific technologies delivering the watertight integrity monitoring of marine structures and the monitoring of fixed liquefied gaseous fire extinguishing systems and the room integrity of protected space to ensure agent hold-times post-installation. We show this by our understanding of the science in them and the mathematics that explain them.

I would like to thank you for your business and for the relationships with our Customers, Strategic Partners, Distributors and ODAs who we value so highly.

My kindest regards,
