Crude Oil Collection Tank; Every Drop Counts

Level measurement is critical to handle the crude oil safely and securely so that it proceeds to refinement while keeping our world safe.

The production of petroleum in all of its different states requires different types and sizes of tanks at different stages. Crude oil is the naturally occurring liquid form of petroleum. In the petrochemical industry in order for the crude oil process to run continuously and smoothly care has to be taken when storing raw and finished products. Accurate level measurement of products of distillation is essential whilst they are being stored in different sized tanks.
