Servo Tank Gauge System Used For Bulk Storage Of Gasoline

This paper presents an outline of the most commonly adopted servo tank gauge and level measurement systems used in the gasoline storage industry.

It highlights the advantages and disadvantages of the named systems and gives a brief explanation of how the systems work. The outcome of discussion held with professionals and manufacturers in the industry and their view on how level measurement technology is evolving and improving is then summarized showing how more accurate and operationally reliable level measurements should be possible in the future.

It is intended that this review will present information to help reduce the risk of such an equipment failure contributing to a servo tank gauge overfill event in the future, by highlighting appropriate and established level measurement systems for gasoline storage facilities.
