TankRadar System Breaks New Ground

SaabRosemount is offering to vessel owners what it dubs an innovative 3-in- 1 solution for Level Gauging, High Level and Overfill alarm in a single tank gauge unit. The Saab TankRadar STaR system has enjoyed good success since its introduction to market in May 2002, with 30 orders to date.

The Saab TankRadar STaR fully utilizes new sensor technology, as readyprocessed signals from the intelligent radar tank unit are transmitted. The unit provides frequent gauging intervals, allowing operators to act fast in response to level changes, making the loading and discharging of products more predictable and safe.

The system includes temperature measurement with up to five different sensors.

A digital, high-accuracy pressure sensor can be built into the tank gauge unit. An additional safety feature is the back-up battery, which ensures uninterrupted power supply to the system.

The new unit is virtually maintenance free, and can be services during operation, under closed loading conditions, for maximum safety and convenience.
