Tank Farm Monitoring

Tank Farm Monitoring Image

Application: Continuously monitoring tanks

Challenges: Located in remote locations

Solution: Banner Engineering's SureCross Wireless Networks

Benefits: No need for wiring and long battery life

In any tank farm, tank levels, pressure, flow rates, or temperatures must be measured accurately and quickly. When the tanks are in remote or difficult-to-access locations, there may be significant challenges with wiring and power supplies and frequent risk to personnel.

Description

With a SureCross Wireless Network, FlexPower Nodes are deployed at each tank without the need to run cables for power or I/O data transmission. Banner’s unique power management capability enables a Node equipped with an ultrasonic analog level sensor to operate for years on a single DX81 battery power supply.

A DX80 FlexPower Node offers a combination of discrete and analog I/O in a single package, eliminating the need for time-consuming manual data collection. Tank levels can be monitored with an ultrasonic sensor wired to an analog input. Alarms or setpoints can be announced with an EZ-LIGHT on the discrete outputs. Remotely located tank sensor readings can be collected by the DX80 Gateway Pro for data tracking, sending e-mail alerts, or to trigger specific events.
