Headquartered in Littleton MA, Jowa USA, Inc. (formerly Metritape) has provided reliable liquid level gauging products to customers worldwide since 1965. Its innovative resistance-tape technology provides solutions for a diverse mix of industrial, municipal and marine applications, including power plants, refineries, wastewater facilities and cargo, ballast, and water tanks aboard a wide range of vessels. Known as Metritape, this continuous level sensor offers clear advantages over other technologies, especially in sticky liquids that cause mechanical level gauges to seize, and in agitated tanks where surface waves and debris cause other level gauges to give false level readings.
