Running out of fuel in your car is embarrassing. Running out of fuel at a fuel station and turning away customers is unforgivable. Fortunately, management systems is there to keep you in control of your current inventory levels, and much more. Monitoring is also a key fire code requirement for fuel storage. It can be done either using an electronic monitoring system or by manually conducting daily or weekly visual inspections (frequency will vary based on local code).
At Liquid Automation Systems, we provide fuel management solutions. It is important to deal with a professional and reputable company when it comes to your fuel management solutions.
We determine what functionality you require for your specific plant. Most electronic systems are designed to monitor product storage tank fuel levels and provide basic leak detection, and will alert you if there’s a problem or concern. Yet, as with anything, there is a range of models and options: each offering different levels of functionality.
The key options include:
- Electronic line leak detection
- Statistical line leak detection
- Phase separation detection
- Tank mapping
- Business inventory reconciliation
- Discriminating and non-discriminating sensors
- Monitor well sensors
- Maintenance tracking
- High level alarms
We advise clients to choose a system that can differentiate between ground water and leaked product (discriminating sensors). this will help reduce those urgent maintenance calls to calls that can be addressed during normal business hours.
We also offer systems that allow for easy web-based access and monitoring. As with any investment, remote monitoring systems can help save you time and money. The huge benefit is that you can live your life away from you station – knowing that you are still in control and have the latest data at your fingertips.
Most systems can be monitored online using a PC, so you can get an overview of your fuel inventory anytime, anywhere. Some companies now allow you to view everything on your smart-phone using a secure polling app.
