Safety is critically important during loading or transshipment of hazardous goods. State-of-the-art technology plays a crucial role during offloading of marine tankers. The new overfill protection system at ED Mineralölhandel in Andernach, Germany complies with the German Water Resources Act (WHG) and is SIL certified.
The system prevents tank overfilling and automatically halts the pumping operation. An acoustic and visual alarm is also activated. The modular system and sensors can be integrated into existing systems with minimal downtime.  New tank management software ensures that inventory levels are displayed correctly and provides web-based access to inventory data, etc.
