In tank storage applications the challenge for operations is to maximize tank capacity while minimizing the risk of overfill and hazardous spillage. Preventing pump overheating is also a concern. Many of these tanks are in remote or difficult to reach locations without easy access to cable infrastructure or communications. Adoption of traditional wired technologies to address this challenge can be cumbersome, as the cost of installing new wiring can be prohibitive. In addition to wiring, required infrastructure can include ducting, cable trays and trenching, not to mention the challenges of performing this work while the site is operational.
Emerson's Smart Wireless technology eliminates the need for wire related processes. Studies have shown that utilizing wireless technology enables savings of 30% or more over the installed cost of a wired alternative. The suite of wireless solutions can cover any level application, from tank level and interface measurement, to high and low level alarms, valve position, pump vibration and even hydrocarbon leak detection. Ensure accurate, reliable level measurement and diagnostics in remote or difficult to reach locations providing visibility to operations and safely optimizing tank usage to avoid spills.
