Storage tanks require level measurement, leak detection, and often temperature data. Tanks are subject to both U.S. Federal regulations and State and local regulations such as U.S. EPA's Spill, Prevention, and Countermeasure (SPCC) requirements (40 CFR, Part 112). Real-time monitoring of pump motor conditions and pump pressure can also be critical for operational efficiency and equipment maintenance. In addition, the remote nature of tank farms often leads to safety concerns and security challenges. For example, many remote tanks contain hazardous material and these tanks are not frequently inspected due to manual maintenance processes. Infrequent inspections lead to more leaks and other problems, and place operators in danger when they climb the tank ladders.
The ION Tank Farm Monitoring Solution integrates the ION Wireless Condition Monitoring Application which provides a single integrated window into the health and status of all tank farm measurements – tank level, leak detection, temperature, pressure, etc. Wireless condition monitoring devices from a variety of vendors, using many different wireless technologies are combined into a single easy-to-understand interface that provides status on all aspects of your tank farm.
The ION Video Monitoring Application adds remote monitoring of tank farms for both safety and security. Providing a full suite of industrial video monitoring capabilities, ION Video provides scalable capabilities from basic remote monitoring to state-of-the-art advanced video analytics.
All tank farm instrumentation, wireless sensors, and video monitoring are integrated into the ION Tank Farm Monitoring Solution – providing you a single integrated dashboard for effectively managing all aspects of your tank farm.
