Tank Gauge for LPG LNG: Crude, Petroleum Products And Lng Applications

Tank gauge for LPG LNG plays an important role in the smooth functioning of the Petroleum Supply Chain. Some gaseous petroleum products like LNG and LPG (despite being part of the gas supply chain) are also measured by tank gauge for LPG LNG while in the liquid phase at the time of custody transfer or fiscal metering.

Industrial storage tanks usually contain large volumes of liquid product with significant fiscal value – the larger the tank larger is the financial impact of any incorrect operations. Tank gauge for LPG LNG is critically important for measuring liquids in large storage tanks. The ultimate objective is to accurately determine the value of volume and mass of the product in the tanks. The oil and gas industry generally uses static volumetric assessments of the tank content. However, mass measurements are also implemented in China.

Tank gauge for LPG LNG involves liquid level, temperature and pressure measurements. Since liquids undergo volume changes, depending on individual thermal expansion coefficient, there is an additional requirement for proper volume compensation during calculations of volumes at varying temperature conditions. Often, more significantly, for high vertical tanks and pressurised tanks, pressure measurement of the liquid head is important and included in calculating the pressure correction factor. This, in turn, provides an accurate assessment of the average observed density for converting volume to mass.

In addition, dimensional correction factors for variations in tank structural volume under changing operating parameters are applied to maximise liquid product quantity measurement accuracy. Tank gauge for LPG LNG scope varies and is dependent on 1) type of tank, 2) type of liquid, and 3) the purpose storage tank is used for.

Float and Tape Tank Gauge System

These instruments have been the liquid level measurement technique of the petroleum tank gauge system market for over 90 years due to their simplicity, reliability and cost.

Float and tape tank gauge system solution consists of a 2500 automatic tank gauge selected for the appropriate tank type. The instrument provides a measurement to +/- 4 mm accuracy and tank side display that is suitable for inventory management to API specifications. If control room integration and volumetric calculations are required, a tank gauge system transmitter is recommended with a 8500 STS for spot temperature measurement. The selection of the transmitter often depends on the required or existing field communications and protocols.

The automatic tank gauge combination is ATEX approved and is also able to provide optional contact outputs for triggering alarms or relays. If only an analog (4…20 mA) level output is required (without temperature) the 8200 COT can be used.

Working Principle of the Level Gauge

Level gauge consists of two parts: a magnetic indicator and a float. The magnetic indicator is composed of a red and white magnetic flipping column or a magnetic flipping card and a guard plate equipped with a small magnetic steel. When the floating ball equipped with magnetic steel moves up and down with the liquid, the beam magnetic field of the permanent magnet in the floating ball turns the magnetic turning column 180°.

When the liquid level rises, the turning column turns from white to red. It turns from red to white to indicate the height of the liquid level. (The color of the flop and the flop can be different, such as blue and red or black and white, etc.).

When it is necessary to transmit output, install a reed switch or magnetic sensor transmitter parallel to the magnetic indicator to realize the remote transmission of 4-20mA or 0-10mA current signal; equipped with a liquid level alarm switch, and The upper and lower limits of the liquid level can be alarmed.
