How Telemetry Services can Enhance Your Bulk Chemical Management
Kevin Tom, Senior Product Manager, Nexeo Solutions
Chemical or plastics businesses that rely on tank inventory need to minimize manual work, reduce the possibility of human error, and eliminate tank overflows and stock-outs that can put a stranglehold on operations and deplete a facility’s bottom line. It’s not enough to avoid a costly problem; successful enterprises play to win.
Telemetry, or the technology and services that automate tank inventory and level management, is becoming a de facto standard for large terminals and energy producers, but smaller manufacturers and downstream producers have been slower in adopting this simple but valuable tool. Our telemetry service readings are typically accurate within 1% to 3% of the tank volume, and systems can be configured to alert anyone, anywhere, anytime, to a mobile device—and automatically reorder at a predetermined level.
