Veeder-Root has released The PLUS VIEW, a new mobile application for Android and iOS [Apple] based phones and tablets. This free application connects to your TLS-450PLUS, TLS4i, TLS4c, and TLS-450 automatic tank gauges to give you quick access to inventory, compliance, and alarm information.
Ever wondered what goes into installing a new fueling system and how the process unfolds?
Many airport fueling operations can benefit from the elimination of human error that comes with the traditional manual ticketing process where fuel transactions take place. By installing Veeder-Root’s EMR3 electronic meter registers, Datalink wireless data capture solution, and TLS-450PLUS automatic tank gauges, fixed-base operators (FBO’s) can more efficiently manage custody transfers and inventory reconciliation.
Whether you are measuring inventory by dipping tanks or with an automatic tank gauge, the stick or probe measurements are only as good as the tank chart that you reference when calculating the ullage. While tank charts do not cause a loss of fuel, an inaccurate tank chart will affect inventory and delivery data collected and could contribute to masking actual fuel losses.
Ethanol is on the rise, and subsequently so is phase separation. Over 90% of U.S. gas stations are blending their gasoline with ethanol, and the number is only rising.
There are more than 568,000 underground storage tanks (USTs) at 202,000 sites across the United States that are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) technical regulations. Of these, nearly 27% are not in significant operational compliance with either release prevention or leak detection requirements.
A large c-store and fuel retailer with hundreds of sites was facing increased competition as other retailers opened locations in close proximity to key sites. To jumpstart business and build a foundation for growth, new leadership was brought in to streamline processes and eliminate waste throughout the organization’s fueling operations.
Daylight Savings Time starts on Sunday, November 6, 2016. To keep your reporting as accurate as possible, don’t forget to configure Daylight Savings on your automatic tank gauge (ATG) as the clock turns backward one hour.
