Fuel Storage Temperature Monitoring System

Petroleum storage tanks and cryogenic product storage facilities (liquid natural gas, LPG, ethylene, ammonia, etc.) require sensitive temperature monitoring systems to give ample warning of elevated temperatures prior to combustion. By providing an advanced notice of rising temperatures, appropriate steps can be taken to prevent a disaster from happening. Senkox TDS-FS Temperature Monitoring System is the ideal solution to fill this role. The TDS-FS system is composed of multiple Senkox HSD Linear Hot Spot Detectors and accessories; the HSD Linear Hot Spot Detector includes HSD linear heat sensors and DAQ modules.

The flexibility of the Senkox HSD Linear Heat Sensor cables, allows it to be mounted around the tank. The system provides real-time temperature monitoring and also detects the precise location of hot spots. As a result, safety personnel have real-time data of the thermal conditions of the storage tanks. This feature provides advanced warning and extra time for working personnel to deal with cases of overheating. It also clearly identifies the hot spot location.
