Automatic Tank Gauging
Specialising in fuel management LAS is involved in automatic tank gauging that will assist you to reach more accurate figures when measuring fuel.
Most owners of petroleum products stored in tanks are used to monitor their stock by dipping the tank with a dip stick. The value on the dipstick is a rough estimate of the product level.
Modern times with high fuel prices require a more reliable method of controlling wet stock.
Do the following concern you?
Automatic tank gauging has the following advantages:
Versatile In Tank Observer - VITO LT
Temperature and water bottom fuel measurement
The VITO LT is a member of the VITO family product line for temperature and water bottom measurement the VITO LT is used for less demanding requirements in comparison with the W&M approved VITO series.
Like any member of the VITO family, the VITO LT is a robust and reliable device representing the leading edge in sensor technology, fully complying with all major industrial standards such as ISO and API.
Due to the large quantities and characteristics of products stored, the temperature of the tanks content is rarely uniform. Single spot temperature measurement cause a higher uncertainty of the average product temperature, running into differences in stock accounting of several thousands of US dollars for an average 50,000 cubic meter storage tank. Not to mention the uncertainty in total storage capacity of the tank farm. That is why the VITO LT sensors provide average temperature of your stored product by averaging the emerged temperature sensing elements to take the effect of product layers into account. Optionally it measures the water level at the bottom of the tank as well, to get the right figures for asset management calculations.
The VITO LT interface is a solid state electronic unit supplying the measured data to any other field instrument. Power and transmission is taken care of by using only a 2-core (twisted pair) cable between interface and gauge. The intrinsically safe signals from the VITO LT comply with all major safety requirements for use in hazardous areas. Together with the Enraf tank gauges, the VITO LT contributes in solving your accurate tank inventory management needs.
Optimizing your business !
Enraf keeps leaping ahead with it’s technological innovativeness. Why? It is our mission to help our customers optimizing their business and be recognised and accepted as the world leading supplier of tank inventory equipment.
Precision in the Flexline is achieved by implementing revolutionary new software algorithms, in combination with the field proven and highly accurate planar antenna technology. This combination offers you installation of the gauge at any roof nozzle available. Tank shell or welding seems can easily be dealt with to ensure the proper performance of the gauge in all circumstances. The always present dead zone close to the antenna is limited to the absolute minimum, allowing more product to be stored and monitored safely into your tank.
We are proud to present our SmartRadar Xtreme Performance as top of the range, offering you the utmost in reliability, safety and ease of use. This Weights & Measures approved gauge sets the standard for accurate level gauging, speeding up your product transfer procedures.
The SmartRadar High Performance perfectly matches your requirements. The compliance to industry standards such as API, OIML, IEC Ex, ATEX, CSA and FM offers you both standardised and overall accepted operations together with accurate tank inventory management. For intermediate storage, the SmartRadar Advanced Performance offers you, like the other members of the family, a broad range of communication protocols, which can be freely selected to integrate efficiently into the tank gauging system of your choice. A broad range of I/O options is available for every radar solution, please check the individual module sheets for reference.
