Remote Tank Level Monitoring
There is significant value in tank visibility, a concept that industrial gas companies have started to embrace. A major challenge is the scale of deploying so-called "smart tanks" is a significant long term investment, as many gas companies have existing equipment footprints that can range from one-thousand to over a million industrial gas tanks for a variety of applications and uses.
Visibility into the level, capacity, and flow output of each tank has historically been a manual process, leaving industrial gas companies with uncertainty, inefficiency, and a lack of visibility into their tank ecosystem and fulfillment infrastructure. The investment to modernize industrial tanks with flow, tank level, output, and capacity sensors will help industrial gas companies increase their asset visibility, and will help identify operational changes to boost efficiency (refilling tanks as needed, not by estimation) and quality-of-service for the end customer or user.
