FUEL MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

The high cost of business operations has made Fuel Management necessary, even compulsory for firms, establishments and organisations. Faced with the need to cut off losses and retain more profits, the high costs of fuel and fuelling activities has been sought to be reduced. Many organisations, have tried certain processes, systems and initiatives to manage fuel usage and expenses; most of these have actually being wrongly applied and/or conceived leading to the problem remaining, and operational costs soaring.

Smartflow’s Fuel Management Solution always starts off from the ability to measure; this is based on our belief that, “You cannot Manage what you cannot Measure”.

AUTOMATIC TANK GAUGE SYSTEMS

Automatic Tank Gauging systems (ATG) are primarily used to determine the level of fluids (and possibly granular solids) contained within a tank. The ATG through the determined levels processes and delivers additional information such as volume, ullage, water level, high alarms, low alarms, reorder alarms, overfill alarms and so on. Our ATG systems are designed to make data accessible either onsite or remotely via the internet.

HOW IT WORKS

The probes are installed in the tanks, reading the level of fluid in the tank and continuously computing the volume. This information is sent to the control panel.

The control panel displays the levels and volumes in the tank locally/on site. This information is accessible through a clear user-friendly interface.

Data is stored on a dedicated remote server. No IT infrastructure is required by the customer.

The End user can also access the information by logging into the site. The End user can also get alert via emails or SMS on the levels/volumes of fluid in the tank per time.

FLEET MANAGEMENT
