Bulk liquid storage tanks often contain fluids that are hazardous, flammable and/or explosive. These tanks require not only a control system to control levels but and overfill prevention system (OPS) as layer of protection beyond the control system. This basic process control system (BPCS) is commonly referred to as an automatic tank gauging (ATG) system […]

Unlike pressure and flow measurement, temperature measurement can be much more complex given what is being measured. Fluids have thermal inertia characteristics which determine their temperature rate of change. In a Process Heating article, Instrumentation Solves Temperature Measurement and Control Problems, Emerson’s Shane Hale describes some of these challenges and how manufacturers and producers are […]

In many manufacturing and production processes, dangerous gases are present due to their use as a fuel, feedstock or creation as an end product. In an Industrial Automation Asia article, Electrochemical vs Semiconductor Gas Detection – A Critical Choice, Emerson’s Shing Yenn Tan compares and contrasts these detection technologies. Shing Yenn opens with the purpose […]

Tank gauging systems perform bulk liquid measurements on storage tanks on tank terminals, a.k.a. tank farms. These systems provide inventory management and overfill prevention safety functions. The systems include level measurement devices such as safety certified Rosemount 5900S radar level gauges, Rosemount 2240S multi-input temperature transmitters, a Rosemount 2410 tank hub which handles communication between […]
