Tank Farm Monitoring - Thirteen TFT32s and ultrasonic sensors were installed at this waste oil recycling facility near Ottawa, Ontario. Before installing the system operators had to manually dip the tanks before filling and used an high level float/alarm to prevent overfills.

Lacombe selected the TFT32 system so that several operators could view tank levels from their different locations around the plant and office.

They liked TFS Tank Farm Supervisor software and TFC Tank Farm Client software because it allowed each operator to monitor the tank farm right from their own PC.

Sensors are installed in 6 diameter standpipes at the top of each tank with up to 500 ft. (150 m) coaxial sensor cable run back to the TFT32 electronics installed in a central shed near the tanks.

Eight of the tanks contain solvents or small concentrations of explosive hydrocarbons so these TFT32s include Intrinsic Safety Barriers. PZ32TE all-Teflon sensors were used on the solvent tanks for chemical compatibility.

Shipbuilding industry / Dockyards

One of our customers (a shipyard) uses the AVFM-II to monitor the tide of the river Weser and to steer a floating dock. The AVFM-II uses a submerged ultrasonic sensor to continuously measure both velocity and level of the river. Tide-depending ships are therefore able to run into the dock with those measurement results without any damage.

The AVFM-II monitor flow through open channels, partially full sewer pipes and surcharged pipes without a flume or weir. Ideal for stormwater, combined effluent, raw sewage, irrigation water and streams.

The sensor is a completely sealed ultrasonic unit with no orifices or ports. Calibration is simple: enter the pipe diameter or channel width and the AVFM-II computes the flow volume and displays the flow rate.
