SRM Produces Innovative Three Function Tank Gauging System

Thursday, June 20, 2002
Saab Rosemount Marine recently released a new innovative 3-in-1 tank gauging solution–groundbreaking technique for improved performance. The new 3-in-1 solution for level gauging, high level and overfill alarm in one single tank gauge unit has been presented for improved gauging performance and more efficient handling during loading and discharge as well as easier installation. All three functions are for the first time handled by the radar technique, sharing the same deck penetration. Its level gauging, high level and overfill alarm means that all three functions are integrated in one single unit. The functions are designed as independent measuring channels, galvanically separated and intrinsically safe. Saab TankRadar STaR takes advantage of a new sensor technology. Ready-processed signals from the intelligent radar tank unit are transmitted. More frequent gauging intervals mean fast response to level changes, making it easy to act and react in fast processes for safer, more reliable loading and discharge. The result is a cost-effective system that ensures maximum uptime, productivity and profitability. The integrated solution means lower installation cost due to fewer deck penetrations and less cabling. The system includes temperature measurement with up to five different sensors. A digital, high-accuracy pressure sensor can be built into the tank gauge unit. An additional safety feature is the backup battery that ensures uninterrupted power supply to the system at all times. The new Saab TankRadar STaR offers a single system solution that takes care of everything from gauging and data capture to presentation and cargo handling. STaR provides ha trouble-free operation and virtually no maintenance requirements. The gauge unit can be serviced during operation, under closed loading conditions, for maximum safety and convenience. It offers reliable and accurate readings for the lifetime of the ship and an efficient cargo handling that improves productivity and saves time in port. The interface is designed to provide clear read-outs and a good overview for easy, close monitoring. Saab TankRadar STaR is the latest proof of the technology leadership of Saab Rosemount Marine.
