Tank Level Monitoring Systems for Level and Volume Management Needs

Proper monitoring and management of level and volume in tanks increase the profitability and productivity of an industry. With IoT powered level monitoring systems the level of any liquid stored in any tank can be monitored from any location at any time.

For residential and commercial applications too, level monitoring solutions allow estimation of water available in rooftop as well as overhead tanks. With predictive maintenance and multichannel alerting features of IoT platforms, alerts about increasing or decreasing liquid levels in tanks can be obtained and the utilization pattern of liquid stored in the tank can be determined.

End to end Working of Tank Level Monitoring

To install the sensor, either a hole is drilled on the lid of a closed tank, or the sensor is suspended using a rod or rope over an open tank. The sensor once installed can measure the level of liquid present in the tank by propagating a wave through it and calculating the round-trip time of the signal to reflect from the stored liquid surface. A gateway collects the liquid level data from its nearby installed sensors and transmits it to a cloud-powered platform. These readings can be retrieved through our IoT platform from anywhere in the world and can be used to track the live level of liquid in any tank via a mobile application or web app.

Features of Tank Level Monitoring System

  • Real-time Alerts

    Alerts pertaining to increasing or decreasing liquid level in tank can be gathered by pre-determining threshold range and limits. The alerts can be gathered to either prevent overfilling and exhaustion of liquid or maintain a particular liquid volume in the tanks.

  • Compatible with any Tank

    The solution can be implemented with a tank of any shape, size, material, and orientation containing any liquid. Whether the tank is open or closed, stationary or moving, symmetric or asymmetric, or is used for above or below the ground application; the solution can be seamlessly executed.

  • Volume Measurement

    The autocalibration and calculative features of our IoT platform allow you to obtain information regarding the amount of liquid present in a tank through live liquid level readings based on its profile and orientation.

Level Monitoring in Fixed Tank

Tanks, containers, or totes installed in different environments act as a repository and provide pressure for the effective distribution of the liquid through a pipeline network. In both indoor and outdoor deployments, these tanks play a crucial role in facilitating the storage and quantification of any liquid.

Level monitoring in a fixed tank allow the measurement of the level of liquid stored in the tank. Implementation of this automatic system also save cost associated with the manual level measurement as it eliminates the dependency from workers to take readings for liquid level again and again.

Level Monitoring in Movable Tank

Tankers carried by trucks are one of the prominent means to transport liquid products from one site to another. However, there is always a chance for expensive liquid products like petrol and diesel to be stolen from these tankers while they are being distributed to gas pumps.

With distant monitoring solutions, it is now possible to track the live location of the truck along with the amount of liquid it is carrying. The real-time multichannel alert system measures the fluctuation in liquid due to the truck’s movement and alarm authorities about probable theft if the liquid level fluctuation crosses the permissible range.
