Advantis Monitoring System (AMS) tank monitoring works just as well on large floating top tanks as closed small tanks. Usually these tanks are located in a hazardous electrical area requiring Class I Div 1 or Class I Div 2 rated equipment. Because AMS is rated Intrinsically Safe it can be installed directly into the environment since the whole system is certified. Further, the battery/solar panel system supplies needed power. No expensive conduit or electrical installation is required.
AMS can provide a daily, hourly, or customer specific reporting frequency for tank levels resolving to 1/8”. Hi and Lo level alarms can be set by the customer. The secure AMS web application controls what users can view. AMS can also communicate locally using the secure radio system and interface with a larger DCS (Distributed Control System).
Tanks can be local, such as at a terminal or warehouse where they are clustered together. Tanks can also be remote, where there may be one or many. In each case, the Advantis Monitoring System (AMS) designed for tanks is used. The system is energy efficient yet robust. It can alarm for high, low, and anywhere in between as well as report levels as often as desired. The levels are received by the host AMS Web Application, allowing secure viewing on a smart phone or computer.
Using highly sensitive pressure sensors that can be installed in the tank or on a port on the tank, AMS can provide up to 1/8 resolution. The system is also rated Intrinsically Safe (IS) allowing it to be installed in Class 1 Division 1 and Class 1 Division 2 environments with ease.
Installation can be done with maintenance personnel not requiring expensive electricians. Each AMS unit can monitor up to 8 tank levels.

Earthen tanks are basically lakes or ponds. Typically these are used to build a large volume of water and then it is used for Frac jobs. Keeping up with the changes in water level is challenging at best. Anchoring a tank monitor sensor at the bottom allows for daily or hourly reporting of tank level.
