Barge Fuel and Lube Tank Radar Level Measurement

Barge Fuel and Lube Tank Liquid Level Sensor

 Barge Fuel and Lube Tank Liquid Level Transmitter

When a Tennessee barge transportation company needed reliable level measurement of their holding tanks, they turned to Flowline. The firm transports crude, diesel, process oils, lubricants and asphalt between terminal locations and customers up and down the Mississippi river. Barge scheduling and logistics is optimized through tank level inventory monitoring and a satellite based telemetry system. The liquids are hazardous, vaporous, sticky and agitated when underway, and the operations team wanted non-contact level measurement. For these reasons, Flowline suggested our intrinsically safe radar sensors that reliably measure petroleum media, independent of such variables. The radar sensors provide reliable level data to the telemetry system, which uploads to the operations center. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
