Monitoring Of Cargo Tanks Level

Storage Tanks On Board

The levels of storage tanks on board of chemical tankers must be continuously monitored because of strict safety and environmental requirements. Overfilling or product discharge on deck or into the sea could have devastating consequences for human life and the environment. Continuous level measurement and redundant monitoring of conveyor pumps with level switches are essential parts of the safety system. The internal pressure of the tanks is monitored continuously, to prevent damage to the tanks caused by overpressure or vacuum, during charging and discharging procedures or through fluctuations in external temperature.
