Diesel Generator Tank Guided Wave Level Measurement

Diesel Generator Fuel Tank Guided Wave Liquid Level Transmitter

When a Las Vegas suburb needed reliable level measurement of their diesel generator storage tanks, they turned to Flowline. Perched above the valley floor, a pump station transfers drinking water from the plant to a hillside reservoir for gravity fed distribution back to the community. During power outages, two diesel generators ensure continued service with each supplied by a 1,000 gallon tank. To verify readiness, once a month the generators are run for one shift, and then inspected. Station operators complained that as the level dropped, previous TDR level sensors became intermittent, bouncing between the actual level and an extreme high alarm. For this reason, Flowline suggested our guided wave sensors that feature disturbance scan mapping, that automatically disregards false signal returns caused by fitting structures. The guided wave sensors provide reliable level data to the SCADA system, which monitors the tanks, and alarms for replenishment. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
