Fluid handling equipment manufacturer Emco Wheaton introduces a new overfill system designed to prevent product overflows in fuel tankers during loading.
Emco Wheaton’s F2020 overfill sensor features next generation electronics for maximum reliability and endurance, using electronic signals to prevent product overflows of tanker compartments, eliminating the risk of fluid loss and ensuring maximum safety during the filling operation.
The overfill sensor is designed for tankers of up to eight compartments, and is connected to the controls of the terminal through a plug and socket connection. Once overfill is detected, the system will override and shut down the terminal pump and metering equipment filling the tanker compartment.
Emco Wheaton’s overfill protection system comes with ISO 9000/2000 approval and is manufactured in compliance with EN13922 and the European ATEX directive. The new sensor is expected to increase safety levels during tank refuelling operations.
The F2020 overfill sensors form a vital part of Emco Wheaton’s equipment range for builders and operators of road tankers. All components are designed to operate reliably in hazardous conditions, ensuring that liquid is delivered without spillage or contamination at all times while protecting the driver and the environment.
