Benefits of Wireless Monitoring of Tank Storage Pressure Safety Valves


Low pressure storage tanks are used throughout the world in industries including oil and gas, chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and food & beverage. These tanks hold liquids until they are moved to the
next step in a production or supply chain process. Due to changes in temperature and liquid level, the pressure in the storage tanks may change.
In order to maintain a safe tank pressure, special valves are utilized which are able to sense small changes in tank pressure. These valves provide vital pressure control, but have historically remained un-monitored, with none of the feedback loops commonly seem in other pressure control devices. One way to address this issue is through the use a wireless transmitter. The device allows detection of an open or closed position of the pressure and/or vacuum side.
The integration of a wireless transmitter and proximity sensor can enable quick identification and response to potential issues.

Key benefits of Wireless Tank Monitoring include:
  • Safety: Reduces operational emergencies and the climbing into tanks
  • Emissions Control: Reduces unintended emissions that may result in environmental issues and fines
  • Asset Protection: Protects the valuable tank contents and the tank itself
