As the global supply of oil exceeds demand, not only do we continue to see falling prices, but also tank storage facilities with increasing inventories. From a process automation and management standpoint, having safe and reliable overfill prevention systems are critical for the hazardous materials these storage tanks contain.

Emerson's Carl-Johan Roos


In a quick 1:04 video, Emerson’s Carl-Johan Roos introduces an overfill prevention guide.

In the video he opens explaining that tank overfills are one of the largest safety concerns for process manufacturers and producers. This is because the consequences can be catastrophic and the probability is very high.

CJ shares how Emerson teamed up with the American Petroleum institute to create The Engineer’s Guide to Overfill Prevention. The guide includes information about the standards, codes and practices, risk assessment, proof testing, and additional information critical in preventing tank overfill conditions.

In addition to requesting the overfill prevention guide, you can complete the online form to receive other level measurement guides including:

  • The Engineer’s Guide to Level Measurement
  • The Level User Guide for the Instrument Engineer in the Refining Industry
  • The Engineer’s Guide to Level Measurement for Power and Steam Generation

In addition, you can connect and interact with other level measurement and overfill prevention experts in the Level group in the Emerson Exchange 365 community.
