World leading provider of technology for the transportation of gas, oil and hazardous chemicals, Emco Wheaton has introduced an innovative new software package designed to automatically monitor product levels in individual compartments of tankers.
Ineffective monitoring of compartments can result in inaccurate distribution and product recognition at the point of delivery, potentially affecting profit margins and customer relations. When adding a multi-compartment drawbar trailer, it can be even more difficult and time consuming to keep track.
The Drawbar + from Emco Wheaton is versatile and flexible, and can simultaneously monitor levels within any additional multi-compartmental drawbar trailer, which may be connected to and towed by a tanker mid-application.
An upgrade of its highly successful Compartment Volume Monitoring software, which automatically and successfully detects any addition of compartments and alters its display to accommodate them, the Drawbar + software will help customers keep track of their product even in complicated circumstances, explains Tom Cunningham, Territory Sales Manager of Emco Wheaton.
If a two-compartment drawbar trailer is connected to a tanker with four compartments, Drawbar + will immediately begin to monitor and display the product levels in all six compartments.
During loading, details are entered into the litre counter and compartment contents are displayed graphically and numerically. Drawbar + automatically displays the name, location and volume of the product in each compartment throughout transportation. Helping with accurate distribution, the volume is recalculated throughout the delivery process and any retained product is displayed.
