Remote Tank Level and Leak Detection

In large tank farms, or plants with remotely located tanks, audio and visual alarms are ineffective. The reason is obvious. There's no one around who can see or hear an alarm condition. In these situations, remote, central monitoring is required.

Remote tank monitoring systems allow for multiple tank monitoring via hard-wired installations, or where that's not possible, through wireless connections.

One manufacturer, OMNTEC, offers a broad variety of tank monitoring and leak detection products. The product video below introduces the Proteus Mini-Me system.
