Fuel Tank Monitoring System

Fuel is one of the most critical assets of our modern world, making fuel inventory management one of the more important monitoring and control applications. Our customers trust ControlByWeb fuel level sensors and controllers to manage their critical assets.

Remote Fuel Tank Monitoring System

Monitoring remote fuel tanks is critical for a wide range of industries from Agriculture to Telecommunications. Whether for powering large machinery or as back-up power generation for cell towers, remote fuel tanks need to be carefully managed to keep things moving.

ControlByWeb I/O and data acquisition modules are remote accessible for both remote monitoring and control of pumps, valves, vents, and more. Whether to support custody transfer or simply to regularly log inventory, our modules enable efficient operations at a distance.

Automated Monitoring to Improve Safety

Manual measurements of petrochemicals like oil and fuel come with inherent risks. Tanks are tall structures and the risk of falling is very real. Additionally, fuel and oil tanks are prone to hazardous fumes that are not only bad for the lungs, but combustible. Reducing human intervention will reduce the risk of injury across the board.

Common Fuel Tank Monitoring Problems

Problem X Icon
Manual Monitoring & Control

Monitoring systems without remote access and control, or with limited remote access, prevent real time decision-making and quick emergency response.

Problem X Icon
Failing Level Sensors

Many types of level sensors struggle with fuel due to its volatility. Whether it’s vapor layers, expansion, or corrosion, improper or cheap sensors won’t do the job.

Case Study: 5 Rivers Aviation

5 Rivers Aviation provides full-service ground support and onsite services to private aircraft at Livermore Municipal Airport, including supplying fuel with over 48,000 gallons of capacity. Owner Pete Sandhu relies on ControlByWeb sensors and controllers to manage his inventory and aid his fuel purchasing strategy.

Not only is it important for Pete to know how much fuel he has on hand, it’s just as important to know how much capacity he has available. Fuel prices fluctuate weekly, and when it’s as expensive as aviation gasoline or jet fuel, buying when the price goes down is especially important.

Pete monitors fuel prices closely. When the price comes down, he needs to buy as much as he can. That’s where ControlByWeb fuel level sensors and controllers come in handy. He can simply check is phone app and know exactly how many gallons he has available. This lets him optimize his purchasing strategy and run a profitable business.

Pete likes ControlByWeb products so much that he uses them elsewhere as well. When a friend with a 15,000-acre ranch asked him how he could better manage his water, he knew the right solution was ControlByWeb. Just like Pete’s fuel level management system, his buddy wanted to know his tank levels and save money. Only this time he wanted to control pumping when his solar panels where producing power.

From managing his own aviation business to helping out trusted friends, Pete uses ControlByWeb level sensors and controllers to perform when it counts.
