How Does The Centeron Monitor Work?
The Centeron monitor emits short, continuous microwave pulses into the tank, and then records the amount of time it takes for the pulses to bounce back. Based on the recorded time, the monitor calculates fluid levels in the tank. It then transmits this information via radio signal.
The Centeron monitor is completely wireless, meaning that it is easy and cheap to install and requires little maintenance. It does not require calibration, and is flexible enough to fit into many different spaces. Although the monitor was specifically designed for oil tanks, it can also be used to measure a wide variety of other fluids. Its battery lasts for five years. It is also one of the most accurate radio measurement products on the market.
The Centeron monitor's radio is safe to use in hazardous locations. It has a line-of-sight range of one mile, and a range of 500 feet if obstructed. It uses DSSS transmission technology, meaning even the most serious environmental conditions cannot interrupt the signal.
Why Should I Get A Centeron Monitor?
You cannot responsibly buy and use fuel without an accurate assessment of your fuel levels. Without such an assessment, there's no way to tell when to buy new fuel, or how much of it to buy. If you try to guess your fuel levels without a monitor, or base them off an inaccurate monitor, you could end up buying too much fuel. This would not only be a waste of money, but it could also cause a dangerous oil spill during refueling. Centeron provides you with an accurate record of your fuel levels so you can know exactly how much to order.
Besides helping you to refuel accurately, Centeron monitors help you to catch fuel leaks as soon as they start. Without a monitor, fuel leaks can run for days unchecked, wasting your valuable merchandise and raising the risk that your property will catch fire. Even in the best of scenarios, a fuel leak is a bureaucratic nightmare to clean up. The EPA, along with state and local regulators, will fine you for the damage to the environment and force you to ensure that all the spilled oil has been cleaned away. With a Centeron monitor, however, you can catch and stop fuel leaks before they have a chance to get out of hand.
