Automatic Tank Gauging

Specialising in fuel management LAS provide automatic tank gauging solutions that will assist you to reach more accurate figures when measuring fuel.

Most owners of petroleum products stored in tanks are used to monitoring 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.

Does the following concern you?

  • Inaccuracies of the dipstick make it difficult to reconcile the stock level back to the volume sold through the dispensers.
  • Daily opening of manholes on the forecourt to dip present a danger to your personnel as well as customers.
  • Product in the tanks are contaminated by the dirt entering the tank during dipping or dirt on the dipstick.
  • Fraud takes place as the pump attendants record the dips themselves.
  • Water contamination is not detected at an early stage.

Automatic tank gauging has the following advantages:

  • Automatic and accurate reconciliation to the sales volumes.
  • Delivery detection with confirmation of volume, date and time.
  • Leak detection.
  • Remote level recording to an accuracy of 1 mm.
  • Automatic calibration of the tank levels.
