Automatic Tank Gauging System

Fuel is one of the biggest expenditures in any operation, and it is used in almost every operation around the globe, from powering emergency generators to fueling large earth moving equipment. We have recognised the importance of fuel, and we have therefore made it our goal to offer an Automatic Tank Gauging System specially designed to measure the fuel in your fuel storage tanks. Our fuel monitoring system includes suitable level sensors, selected for each individual application. Our fuel level sensors come with IEC approval as well as Explosion proof housings to ensure longevity and low maintenance costs while installed in your fuel storage tanks.

The level sensors though, are just one piece of the puzzle, we also have a local monitor cabinet, equipped with IEC approved, SunBrite displays to ensure easy visibility and readability even in harsh sunlight. This is where most other Automatic Tank Gauging Systems would stop, but we have included one of the most useful features you could want in a Fuel Monitoring System, remote access. This remote access works using the GSM/GPRS signal at the display cabinet, and transmits the tank levels to a server where real-time data, including, usage rates, tank levels, estimated time until empty and archived history are all accessible from a secure intranet/internet connection.

Our Automatic Tank Gauging System and Fuel Monitoring Systems have already been deployed throughout various sites in Australia and we hope these sytems will only become increasingly popular as they become better celebrated due to the enormous benefits they bring, the fantastic quality, and awesome reliability.

Tank Gauging System Integrated with Smart Wireless Technology

Tank farm automation is now easier, faster and less costly with the integration tank gauging systems and Smart Wireless technology. System installation costs can be reduced up to 50 per cent by wirelessly connecting the tank farm to the control room, with the added benefit of reducing implementation time by as much as 60 per cent. The savings free up budget for expanded automation of tank farms.

The tank gauging system with Smart Wireless technology, features a complete line of tank gauging components, including high precision radar gauges that use self-configuring, 2-wire, high speed FOUNDATION fieldbus technology. The combined communications technologies enable use of a wide range of standardised equipment. The resulting tank gauging system forms a network of digital intelligence that improves inventory management, loss control, overfill avoidance, and maintenance efficiency throughout the plant.

Many tank storage facilities that could benefit from modern, non-contact gauging currently use obsolete signal wiring, or are not connected from the tank storage area. Retrofitting an obsolete gauging system is expensive and time consuming because the distance between storage tanks and the control room can be more than one kilometre, requiring extensive trenching and cabling.

As a result of budget restrictions, some plants continue to experience maintenance problems caused by communications limitations and low performing mechanical tank gauges and instruments. Now, with Smart Wireless technology, a new radar-based tank gauging system can be installed without new long distance signal wiring. This will radically reduce material and labour costs, as well as engineering and project execution time.

How Tank Gauging System Works

The Tank Gauging System monitors inventory, so you know the exact amount of stored products. The tank gauging system measures precise batches and custody transfers between ship and shore as well as in pipeline transmissions. Use the tank gauging system for everyday operations, oil movement, scheduling purposes and blending programs. Keep accurate track of leaks and prevent overfills to reduce environmental impact and the financial consequences of oil losses.

Reduce uncertainty in oil inventory and transfers:
• Receive real-time tank data for accurate net volume calculations.
• Get certified custody transfer accuracy.
• Utilize tank capacity efficiently.
Improve safety:
• Comply with overfill prevention standards such as API 2350.
• Use SIL 2 and SIL 3 certified devices.
Simplify installation and terminal operations:
• Benefit from unique 2-in-1 technology.
• Simplify automation and expansion with Smart Wireless.
• Use gauge emulation to replace old mechanical gauges.

Automatic Tank Gauge Installation and Certification

Leak Detection

Installing or upgrading the right automatic leak detection system is crucial for environmental risk reduction. Selecting the appropriate equipment, utilizing certified installers, and selecting the right company to partner with are the components of success.

Automatic Tank Gauge Vendors

As the owner or operator of a tank system, make sure your vendor or installer is certified and provides you with the system information and the proper training necessary to guarantee your system works effectively to detect leaks.

If you don’t know how your system works, you may fail inspections and may find yourself with violations and penalty fees. Or even worse, you may find too late that you have had a leak and you may now have to pay for extensive cleanup of a contaminated site and for damages caused to others.

Automatic Tank Gauge Certification

Most states currently require UST system owners to perform periodic testing on their Automatic Tank Gauges (ATG’s). This testing is needed in order to verify that all tank probes and sensors are in proper working order. Additionally, ALL testing records must be readily available, if requested by a regulator or inspector.

Automatic Tank Gauge (ATG) Testing and Repairs

Field technicians routinely inspect ATG systems and certify that its components are performing at the standards required by your state or local jurisdiction. Our technicians can test your electronic leak detectors, leak detector sensors, and high level leak alarms assuring accurate configuration, functionality and system continuity.

Our ability troubleshoot and repair potential issues while on your site corrects problems such as failing leak detectors or malfunctioning sensors during our visits , thus eliminating the need for costly return visits or site down-time.

The Benefits of Automatic Tank Gauge

With ongoing measurement of tank levels and temperature you can insure the integrity of your product while also preventing costly inventory loss and the environmental costs associated with cleanup from a leak. Automatic tank gauge’s are sophisticated monitoring systems that can detect fluctuations in tank volume and alert operators when there is a minimal or substantial leak. Temperature measurements monitor the integrity of fluids like gasoline, which pressurizes in response to an increase or drop in temperature as it expands and contracts. Because of the expanding and contracting nature of certain fluids, automatic tank gauge testing requires a window of time post-delivery to allow for the stabilization of temperature within the tank.

Another key benefit to installing an automatic tank gauge system is reassurance that you will always have enough fuel on hand to satisfy your inventory needs. With an automatic tank gauge system you will be alerted when it’s time to re-order and refill, and deliveries can even be setup to be automated, freeing up your facility manager and warehouse operators for other tasks.

As automatic tank gauge technology continues to evolve, we remain steadfast in automatic tank gauge software solutions to help maximize Just-In-Time deliveries and inventory transparency with our customers. Having an automatic tank gauge solution that focuses specifically on your fluid inventory needs provides peace of mind you need so you can focus on your customers and your business needs.
