Oil Field Diesel Storage Tank Level Measurement

When a Canadian oil drilling contractor needed reliable level measurement of their diesel storage tanks, they turned to Flowline. The firm maintains remote fuel stations to support their vehicles, rigs and power generators in the field. The tanks are monitored, and the inventory data is uploaded to their fuel supplier for monthly replenishment. The operator said that during winter, condensation in the tank turns to ice, which caused previous float level sensors to stick high, and falsely indicate they had lots of diesel. He wanted a reliable, solid-state level sensor that’s unaffected by condensation and that performs to -40º C. For this reason, Flowline suggested our reflective ultrasonic sensors. The ultrasonic sensors provide reliable level data to the SCADA which monitors the inventories and alarms for replenishment. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
