1. Development of ATG system
Automatic Tank Gauging System hereinafter referred to as ATG system.
In the petrochemical field, it has always been a not easy task to measure the storage tanks of various oil products. Before people mostly used the measurement method of manual measurement, manual sampling, and manual calculation, but this method is laborious and easy to cause errors.
Now, with the advancement of science and technology, people begin to use automatic metering methods, such as ATG, HTG, HTMS, and other automatic metering systems, which can partially or completely replace manual metering, and save labor costs, and greatly improve metering.
The ATG system has become the mainstream of the market.
2. What is an ATG system?
The ATG system is mainly composed of an intelligent controller/console and magnetostrictive liquid level meter/probe.
The magnetostrictive effect is generated by the probe in the magnetic field, and the pulse is generated to calculate the displacement, and then determine the liquid level value, and complete the measurement and analysis of the storage tank.
Including liquid level, temperature, density, oil-water interface, volume/weight, and other information are measured in real-time, and the data is transmitted to the liquid level meter for display, and various historical reports are automatically generated to facilitate subsequent query and management. and an alarm for oil leakage, high and low liquid level, etc.
At the same time, it can also be connected to the central management system, and the data can be transferred to the computer desktop for better maintenance and management.
3. Why use an ATG system?
As mentioned above, it saves labor and improves metering accuracy. Of course, the biggest advantage is that it can be systematically managed and analyzed by data.
When you have many oil tanks, it is unrealistic to measure and analyze one by one, and it is extremely easy to cause confusion.
The Automatic Tank Gauging System can be analyzed and managed in a unified manner, the data of multiple oil tanks are aggregated to a liquid level meter, and uploaded to the computer, which is more concise and clear in front of the manager.
4. What are the application scenarios of the ATG system?
The ATG system is widely used in gas stations, mobile fuel service stations, oil depots, etc. It allows operators to monitor the data of oil tanks in real-time, making management more convenient.
5. What are the benefits of Blue Sky Energy’s ATG system?
Blue Sky Energy has been engaged in developing and using the Automatic Tank Gauging System since 2008. Now it has a history of more than 10 years, and the system has become stable.
We provide complete sets of equipment and systems, whether you are operating a gas station or an oil depot, we can provide the perfect solution. For gas stations, we can provide IC cards or RFID systems, which can be used together with the ATG system, so that the entire gas station can be managed intelligently.
In terms of oil depots, whether you have 10 oil tanks or 20 or 50, we can integrate them into one system and use the mobile APP management system, no matter when and where you are, you can know about the oil depot information data.
We make management easier.
