Reduce tank operating costs through optimised site visits
Telemisis provide an out-of-the-box Liquid Storage Tank Monitoring Solution which is simple and easy to deploy, that combines SitePro and TankNode, with the option of including cellular airtime. The solution can be deployed as either a Cloud based SaaS or, for larger enterprises, as a self-hosted solution.
As monitoring and control demands grow, either through increase in the number or type of assets connected to the system, and/or an increase in the number of system users, SitePro scales seamlessly. If required, the initial deployment can be provided as a Cloud based SaaS before migrating to dedicated self-hosted server.
Our Liquid Storage Tank Monitoring Solution allows owners and operators of liquid storage tanks, including water, diesel, heating oil, lubricating oil, and AdBlue tanks, to reduce the operating costs of their assets by optimising site visits and avoiding or mitigating potentially costly events.
SitePro replaces the need for expensive site visits to monitor liquid levels. Using the new solution, operators can monitor liquid levels remotely from their computer via a web portal, or by phone or tablet using the Android or IoS application, without the need for an on-site presence.For mobile liquid storage tanks, the solution can be used to set geographic boundaries and raise alerts if the tank moves beyond these boundaries.
Predict and Schedule
Continuously monitoring liquid levels enables asset operators to accurately forecast usage, and schedule replenishment visits. When replenished SitePro can be used to verify actual delivery volumes against invoiced volumes.
Analyse and Report
In addition to monitoring liquid levels, SitePro provides a wide range of analysis, reporting and compliance capabilities.
Already in operation with major international organisations, our new Liquid Storage Tank Monitoring Solution, drives down tank operating costs, while minimising capital expenditure … providing a pathway to additional monitoring and control capabilities Chris Begent, Commercial Director Telemisis
Once in operation, the solution can be expanded to monitor and control other asset types, such as generators, communications infrastructure, and industrial processes, through the deployment of additional SiteNode3G and SiteNode3G+; while retaining the same SitePro user interface, applications and back-end.
At the heart of the Liquid Storage Tank Monitoring Solution, is our latest remote telemetry unit, TankNode Solar.
TankNode Solar, is a solar powered, IP67 node with an integrated liquid level sensor. Designed for continuous autonomous operation, it can be fitted directly to the top of a liquid storage tank. The node incorporates a solar panel, and a compensated hydrostatic level sensor, suitable for ½ inch BSP tank entry and tanks up to three metres in depth. TankNode Solar includes a GSM wireless modem for connection to the SitePro server and GPS for ease of location on the map interface.
Specifically designed for liquid level monitoring applications, TankNode is a battery powered, IP67 node with an integrated liquid level sensor.
Designed to be fitted directly to the top of a liquid storage tank, TankNode incorporates a compensated hydrostatic level sensor, suitable for ½ inch BSP tank entry and tanks up to three metres in depth. TankNode includes a GSM wireless modem for connection to the SitePro server and GPS for ease of location on the map interface. Typical operation period on batteries is up to 1 year without replacement.
Some of the key readings and alerts provided by the solution include:
Liquid Level (volume)
Liquid Level (percentage)
High and Low Liquid level alerts
Graphing and reporting
Theft & leak detection and alerts
Battery low & replacement alert
Missed poll alert
Refill detection and Alerts
Designed To Ease Deployment
Drawing upon all of our experience of deploying remote monitoring and control solutions across the globe, our Liquid Storage Tank Monitoring Solution has been specifically architected to ease deployment and increase speed of roll out.
External Power Eliminated
TankNode and TankNode Solar eliminate the need to provide an AC or DC power source at the remote tank.
Tank Capacity Calculated
At time of commissioning, simply chose a stored tank profile, or select a take shape and enter its dimensions and the tank capacity is automatically calculated.
Sensor Installation Simplified
The choice of flexible level sensing technology means that a single sensor can be used for any depth of tank, up to three metres, eliminating the need to hold stock of different (and exact) length sensors, ensures the full depth of the tank can be utilised, and enables sensor installation to be performed without draining the tank.
The solution optionally includes airtime capable of being used in over 100 countries, eliminating the need to manage SIM cards and airtime packages.
Our Liquid Storage Tank Monitoring Solution flexibly scales as an operators demands expand over time.
Integration with existing back office systems is simplified through the use of MQTT, REST, SNMP and Azure Bus protocols.
