Electronic Control Comes In Two Forms
Multi-Point Control (MPC) – Where a single keypad and screen can control up to eight loading arms / flow meters. Load programming can be inputted from the central user interface where the operator can also interrogate the system for loading information. This system is typically used for our loading skids with up to five arms. It is ideal for clients who want a high level of control for their tanker loading.
Single-Point Control (Equalis) – Where individual load computers are used to control each loading arm / flow meter. Each meter is controlled independently, and all the equipment is combined to create an integrated system. Single point loading is ideal when clients require greater flexibility and want the assurance of individual control in case of the individual meters being offline.
Temperature Compensation – Our electronic skids can be fitted with temperature sensors to monitor the fuel temperature and provide a compensated reading through our batch controller.
Pressure and Location Sensors – We can monitor liquid line pressure and provide sensors to show when the loading arms are in their parked position.
Terminal Automation Software – All our batch control options can be interfaced to terminal automation software to make the most of the micro-processor capability within the systems. This interface allows the client full control and oversight of all tanker loading operations with a range of reports and functionality.
When loading flammable products into tankers at high-speed, safety is of the utmost importance and all of our skids come with a range of monitoring and control systems to provide the highest level of protection to operators and the environment.
The entire fuel loading system is designed with longevity in mind, including high-quality weather-proofing on all electronic components. Built on the same galvanised metal frame as our mechanical skids and featuring back-lit screens for night time operation, electronics skids are perfect for depots wishing to invest in their future and make the most of new technology.
Fuel loading skids are configured with safety features including tanker earth monitoring, overfill protection, emergency shut off, and a thermal pressure relief system. Standard control valves installed on electronic skids can be used for many petroleum spirits and their derivatives, and when heavier fluids are being transferred, we can configure actuated ball valves to cope with the higher pressures. All skids are designed based on a customer’s specific needs and use case. If you are interested in our electronic skids please contact us for a no-obligation quote.
