When a Northeast fuel distributor needed reliable level measurement of their diesel, bio-fuel, heating oil and additive tanks, they turned to Flowline. The firm receives, stores, blends and delivers energy products to automotive, residential, aviation and marine customers via their terminal distribution centers, and timely fulfillment requires accurate inventory, logistics and weather data. These sticky oil based products are stored in horizontal tanks that previously had mechanical level gauges. The operators complained that the gauges stuck and were unreliable, which forced them to make daily visual tank inspections. For this reason, Flowline suggested our non-contact ultrasonic sensors that are ideal for oil based fuels and lubricants. The intrinsically safe ultrasonic sensors provide reliable level data to the PLC, which monitors the inventories and alarms for replenishment. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
