Tanks - measure hydrocarbon, water and emulsion levels and identify sludge

Scans on tanks and spheres gives you a clear picture of hydrocarbon, water and emulsion levels and determine if there is any sludge or plugged vent lines.

Tracerco can measure the height of each phase in your tank, using a PhaseFinder™ neutron backscatter device. This reliable and non-intrusive technique helps you assess the levels of hydrocarbon, water, sediment and emulsion. It’s accurate to within 2 inches and is a useful tool to verify your own measurements and record accurate inventory levels.

Tracer studies give you a more detailed picture of how fluids in your tank are behaving. Tracerco can assess residence time and analyse the way a fluid is mixing. – a useful test if you suspect sediment is building up inside.

When a tracer is introduced into the vessel, it mimics the liquid or gas inside, allowing us to track its movement using detectors. This allows us to calculate the residence time and degree of mixing or plug flow.
