CALIBRATION SERVICES

Smartflow offers tank calibration services for underground and aboveground tanks utilized in retail and commercial fuelling operations.

In fuelling operations, particularly the receipts and storage of products otherwise referred to as custody transfer, up to 40% of product delivered is lost in situations wherein there is;

  • No Calibration
  • Wrong/Incorrect Calibration

With the right calibrations, organisations and retail stations can block off up to 90% from their losses from delivery.

Smartflow is highly experienced and competent in tank calibrations having spent adequatetime, while applying and refining the right methods (API & DPR) for the calibration practice. Our calibrations come with high level accuracy that ensures that profits are retained and losses blocked off. In event of any non-conformity or issue, Smartflow’s calibrations come with a “Get-It-Right” guarantee which ensures that the calibration performed is correct and accurate.

Calibrations are not only required when tanks are about to commence operations, but periodically, not longer than bi-annually, for tanks in operations. Periodic calibration is required as operational tanks would have undergone slight changes in position, orientation and form.

Do you have a new fuel tank about to be put into operation or a tank in operation that you have not calibrated in a while? Let Smartflow calibrate your tank(s).
