Flotechâ€™s tank gauging system is designed specifically for the offshore and marine industry. The system is suitable for measurement of ballast and other water/fuel oil tanks through the use of electro-pneumatic technique, level and non-contact transmitters.
The system overview above shows the tank gauging cabinet which receives inputs from level transmitters and bubbling point. These inputs are then processed by the systemâ€™s PLC, which in turn provides and display correct tank data, such as product level, tank volume etc. on the HMI
Options for interfaces to offloading computers or vessel monitoring systems include the industry standard communication protocols such as Modbus RTU, Fieldbus and Ethernet networks. Redundant communications are available where required, depending on the class regulations and vessel type.
