Pump Station Diesel Tank Guided Wave Level Measurement

Pump Station Diesel Tank Guided Wave Level Sensor

Pump Station Diesel Tank Guided Wave Level Transmitter

When a New Mexico water plant needed reliable level measurement of their pump station diesel fuel tank, they turned to Flowline. Located at the base of a large urban valley, the pump station transfers drinking water to hillside storage tanks that supply the community below. A diesel generator provides backup power and is automatically run every other week to ensure readiness. There the operator said that previous float level switches had failed due to coating and caused fuel shortages. They wanted to replace it with a rugged solid state level transmitter that’s unaffected by coating diesel. For this reason, Flowline suggested our guided wave sensors with 316L antennas and a durable aluminum enclosure. The guided wave sensor provides reliable level data to the SCADA which monitors the tank and alarms for fuel replenishment. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
