Level Measurement Solutions for Fuel Monitoring

With the cost of fuel increasing by the hour it has become inevitable to use fuel judiciously and completely stop its misuse, pilferage and wastage. Conventional floats break easily due to wear and tear and it is tough to control fuel pilferage using floats. Fuel monitoring has thus become an integral part of sectors like fleet management, vehicle tracking, civil construction, telecommunications, oil and gas, etc. Fuel monitoring can help in optimizing operational costs, managing assets efficiently and improving profitability.

Level-Sensors-Fuel-Industry_Sapcon-Instruments

Using an experience of over 30 years in level instrumentation, for the last six years, SAPCON has launched special fuel level sensor, Capvel-FUEL, designed for fuel monitoring. More than 20,000 references in this industry segment for fuel level sensing gives us the required know how of operation and practical field experience.

Capvel­-FUEL is a compact fuel level transmitter which works on the principle of capacitance. It comes with a step­-by­-step guide in the form of a desktop application, Capvel­-FUEL­-Connect. Capvel­-FUEL­-Connect is intuitive and easy to use and can help configure and calibrate the sensor in a few button clicks.

Applications:

  1. Vehicle Tracking System
  2. Fuel Storing Tanks
  3. DG Sets
  1. Vehicle Tracking System
  • Turbulence get compensated due to uneven road
  • Fuel Pilferage enroute
  • Remote monitoring of fleet
  • Efficiency of vehicle

Fuel Monitoring

A typical system consists of Capvel-FUEL, GPS transmission system and remote indication device i.e PC or a laptop. SAPCON fuel level sensor gives the output in the form of percentage, mm (in height) or voltage output that has to be connected with the user’s GPS tracking system. GPS system further transmit the signal to take out put of exact level on a computer or laptop.

Capvel-FUEL is a capacitance based fuel level transmitter based on the principle of parallel plate capacitor. It can be used for continuous monitoring of fuel or any other liquids.

Unique Features

  • Universal DC supply range 09-30 V DC.
  • Two/Three – wire sensor, Galvanically isolated 4-20mA o/p.
  • Turbulence compensation.
  • Digital RS-485 Modbus-RTU protocol for remote communication
  • Voltage out put range from 1-5 and 2-10 volts.
  • Automatic Temperature compensation.
  • Suitable for wide range of liquids.
  • Low Cabling cost.
  1. Fuel Storing Tanks
