In today’s situation where business margins are decreasing, cost control in the transaction of petroleum, LPG, chemicals, and oils is very vital. Although storing, transferring, blending or processing, and strict consistency in volumetric measures is imperative, accurate calibration of storage and process vessels is necessary for providing high-quality products.
A high standard of tank calibration not only guarantees quality products, but it also lessens troubles within customers and troubles in internal stocktaking and accountability. Calibration of tanks is a science that involves accurately defining the volume in confined vessels at various stages.
Why calibrate at regular intervals
Tank shells undergo expansion and contraction due to hydrostatic liquid head pressure. When wrongly calibrated, conditions can make a big difference in volume at various levels and dip reference height. Moreover, any structural changes or restorations made to the tank should be re-calibrated.
To achieve the highest pinnacle of accuracy, a tank calibration must be equipped with accurate and calibrated linear measuring instruments, precision digital optical laser total stations, ultrasonic devices, flow meters, and other instruments. Also, filed data are administered for analysis by our indigenously developed software and calibration charts that are printed error-free.
Whether it be an inclined horizontal tank whose volume upsurges exponentially, a tank with irregular bottom, dished ends, blades and heating coils inside, an intricate bottom shell arrangement, a floating roof tank with liquid dislocation to be taken care of, we are always a step ahead of a critical assignment.
A tank calibration is developed with uniquely correlated physical, mathematical, and error-free computer-aided volumetric solutions.
Standards to follow
In doing tank calibration, it needs to be traceable and within the standards. A company should be licensed to operate and provide specific data. It is a must to follow various methods for calibrated and error-free results.
TOIC makes use of a patented tank calibration system called CalibeX – 3D Laser Calibration Technology. 3DCalibeX is one of the most comprehensive technological systems developed by Asis to date. It is a system composed of advanced robot mechanics, mechatronics, state-of-the-art electronic circuit designs, onboard LEL device design, laser and optical applications, and applications consisting of 3D modeling algorithms and data analysis software involving advanced mathematics.
Building a gasoline service station requires attention and precision in order to achieve smooth operations and to provide satisfaction to every customer. One of the crucial requirements of a well-operated gasoline station is to have their tanks calibrated regularly. It is very important to maintain the right amount of fuel and to avoid spillage.
