Fuel tank level monitoring


The Problem

There is currently no automated means to detect fuel theft, short deliveries, blocked breathers, product contamination such as water in fuel tanks or cross-contamination such as diesel in unleaded.

Current systems can only detect discrepancies in fuel deliveries and sales exceeding 0.5% of the tank height. This means that on a 23000 liter (6076 gal) tank, up to 115 liters (30 gal) of fuel can disappear without a trace. With every delivery and/or shift change!

A typical garage has up to 8+ underground tanks, and tank sizes up to 48000 liters (12680 gal). See Fuel theft in USA - wikipedia.org or search online “fuel theft usa”.  Fuel theft in the US reach as high as $8 Billion per year.

Leak detection requires expensive equipment, and usually requires pressurizing the tank. And more...

The Solution

The first solution to Tank Gauging that provides accurate contamination, leak detection, level, mass, density and affordability all in one probe. The system is an intrinsically safe measurement system, which continuously measure the contents of 1 to 64 tanks or containers with a single digital controller.

AnovaTank monitors all tank levels to 0.05% accuracy. (11.5 litres). Right now, we have no competitor!

No moving parts or floats, no embedded sensors, no electronics or wiring are used in the tank or in the hazardous area surrounding the tank, which could contain volatile products such as gasoline or diesoline. Therefore require almost no maintenance.        

Very affordable. Installation and maintenance is so simple that a normal electrician can do everything.

The Advantage

First SaaS (software as a service) and PaaS (product as a service) for the fuel market. Covers full installation, warranty, maintenance, all updates to latest technology and 24/7 support to customer.

Visually promotes green fuels as well as the quality of the product at fuel stations. This can be advertised at each pump since the SG (specific gravity) of the fuel is measured and displayed to ensure you do not get a fuel mix that is hazardous to your vehicle or environment;

Real-time alerts for leak detection, product contamination, blocked breathers, tamper detection, overfilling, side-filling*, siphoning*, and intrusion attempts on delivery trucks*. (*AnovaTank firmware fitted).

A system that provides true stock info to owners , banks and fuel depots online with a guarantee ‘what they see is true’, and can safely advance credit for more stock.

Retailers quickly realize that they get the system with all the services for free! (The recovered losses are several times the cost of the contract).

When respondents were asked to list the most important product features considered when investing in a process level measurement or ITG system, accuracy topped the list. Figure 6 lists the respondents' top 15 product features, ranked from most important to least important. ANOVATANK ranks first in the first 6 items (process), and first 10 items (ITG).

Figure 6


Note: SIL = Safety Integrity Level
Respondents indicated that they wanted/needed suppliers who can provide best-in-class product features and performance, but that they also required the suppliers to provide the following: reliable product availability with timely delivery; local or on-site technical and product support; spares, free product demos, a broad product selection, and long-term product support. A supplier's reputation and brand name recognition are also important to the respondents.

Analysis of variance (ANOVA) is a collection of statistical models used in order to analyze the differences between group means and their associated procedures (such as "variation" among and between groups), developed by R. A. Fisher. In the ANOVA setting, the observed variance in a particular variable is partitioned into components attributable to different sources of variation. In its simplest form, ANOVA provides a statistical test of whether or not the means of several groups are equal, and therefore generalizes the t-test to more than two groups. As doing multiple two-sample t-tests would result in an increased chance of committing a statistical type I error, ANOVAs are useful in comparing (testing) three or more means (groups or variables) for statistical significance.
