Tank Overfill Prevention Brochure

Source: Magnetrol International

Tank overfill incidents in recent years have resulted in loss of life and billions of dollars in damages to petroleum facilities worldwide. One of the worst incidents — the overflow of a gasoline storage tank at Buncefield Oil Depot (U.K.) — has been traced to the failure of level control to maintain containment of the flammable liquid. More common are minor spills that cause significant environmental impact and result in millions of dollars in clean-up fees and environmental agency fines.
