Kerosene Tank Level Monitoring with Local Display
We have just fitted some level sensors, a telemetry unit and displays to a couple of 200,000 litre kerosene tanks. The application needed ATEX approved sensors and barriers. At the heart of the system is the Metron2 which is sending the data to our web based portal allowing the client to securely view the level readings via the internet. The results are great with a fantastic local display, accurate readings and internet connected level sensors.
The data is incredibly stable and is a good example of how we can provide affordable yet reliable tank level readings. Over a 48 hour period the readings have only fluctuated by 321 litres out of the 200,000 capacity, so 0.16%. The sensor and the telemetry each have an accuracy of 0.5% - this is not to be confused with the stability.
If you distribute liquids or gases in bulk, Powelectrics IoT remote tank level monitoring systems are proven to reduce logistics and admin costs, and help win & retain business by improving customer service.
Remote Inventory Management/ Vendor Managed Inventory/ VMI is the use of remote level sensing technology to measure and report the level of any type of substance, to significantly reduce the cost of bulk distribution (diesel, petrol, home heating oil, kerosene, biofuels, lubricants, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs, animal feed, construction additives, AdBlue) and collection (waste, recycling).
Powelectrics technology can accomodate any shape or size of tank and contents may be liquid, gas, powder and even granules.
By knowing when a tank needs attention, efficient logistics can be planned and costs reduced. No wasted journeys panic deliveries/collections or part load returns.
Moreover, service and supply contracts can be won and retained by offering enhanced service levels to end-users and removing the responsibility for them to check their own levels and arrange deliveries/collections.
