American Sensor Technologies, Inc. (AST) has received ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) Type Approval for its pressure instrumentation.  Through a factory audit of its New Jersey manufacturing facility, ABS confirmed AST’s manufacturing site, quality management system and conformance to ABS standards.  By receiving the approval, AST has broadened its portfolio for the marine and offshore instrumentation industry. 

AST's pressure transmitters are known as a cost effective, yet extremely reliable alternative to other transmitters available on the marketplace, the manufacturer said. The new approval will aide customers in specifying pressure transmitters and liquid level sensors by reducing the amount of qualification and documentation, as are required with design certification.

Additionally, AST has added ABS approval for the AST46DS, AST46PT, AST4530, AST5300 and AST20HA pressure transmitters. This expands customers' measurement capabilities for monitoring pressure and level in engine controls, sealed and vented tanks and offshore rig panels.
