    Non-contacting Radar for Automatic Tank Gauging and Overfill Prevention Systems

    Bulk liquid storage tanks often contain fluids that are hazardous, flammable and/or explosive. These tanks require not only a control system to control levels but and overfill prevention system (OPS) as layer of protection beyond the control system. This basic process control system (BPCS) is commonly referred to as an automatic tank gauging (ATG) system and the OPS is the safety instrumented system (SIS). A Fluid...

    Radar Level Measurement for Cryogenic Tank Storage

    If you are unfamiliar with cryogenic processes such as those found liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants, then you may be unaware of some of their unique challenges. One big one is overfill prevention and inventory measurement for cryogenic storage tanks. A cryogenic tank is not opened during operation and normally not accessed for maintenance purposes during its entire operating lifespan. A 4:35 YouTube video, Inventory...

    Avoiding Floating Roof Storage Tank Incidents

    Last year during the epic rains of Hurricane Harvey, more than 15 floating roof storage tanks in the Texas Gulf coast region failed during this record-setting storm. These failures resulted in a combined 3.1 million pounds of volatile chemicals being released into the atmosphere across the region, according to reports filed with the environmental agencies. There are several factors that can lead to failure from inadequate...
