How Wireless Technology Secures and Protects Existing Tank Gauging Systems
Wireless Tank Gauging: Theory & Considerations When Upgrading Existing Mechanical Systems
Outdated mechanical tank gauging systems are difficult to maintain, prone to failure, and are difficult to integrate into a facility-wide communications strategy. Through a multiple-path information flow via wireless and fiber, wireless tank gauging provides access to data from tanks previously out of reach—without the need for long-distance field wiring.
A wireless monitoring solution offers several advantages such as real-time tank data for accurate net volume calculations, certified custody transfer accuracy, leak detection, and reliable high-level alarm functionality to prevent potential overflow.
In this webinar you will learn:
- The types of level measurements, the principals behind the technology, and the theory of operation of radar gauges
- An overview of wireless mesh networks will also be discussed, along with specific applications
- The benefits of wireless level measurement over traditional wired level measurement systems
Professional development hours are available.
