The Pedigree Technologies OneView® platform now allows for continuous remote monitoring of fluid levels in moving tanker trailers
(FARGO, N.D.) — Pedigree Technologies LLC today announced the release of a mobile fluid monitoring system in partnership with Pro-Fab Industries Inc. of Arborg, Manitoba and Titan Logix Corp. of Edmonton, Alberta. When used alongside the Titan Logix TD80™ liquid-level gauging system, the Pedigree Technologies OneView platform can be used to remotely monitor levels of crude, produced water, acid, jet fuel and other liquid chemicals being hauled in tanker trailers.
The TD80 gauging system is used to send fluid level readings to the OneView platform, which combines the data with the tank’s real-time GPS location. This allows a company to monitor tanks and other assets remotely and ensure proper handling is taking place. Pedigree Technologies Director of Product Management, Joshua DeCock said, “The main benefit of this feature is that companies can track where and how much fluid is picked up and dropped off. This gives traceability and helps ensure people are not dumping illegally or handling fluids improperly.”
Tank-level readings are taken any time the trailer comes to a stop. The system can also be programmed to send email and text message alerts if fluid levels change from one stop to the next.
This integration creates a safer and more efficient working environment. The TD80 system enhances driver safety by eliminating the need for the driver to climb on top of the tank to take a measurement. Instead, the tank’s fluid level is displayed at eye-level using an advanced digital display. The combination of the Titan TD80 with the Pedigree Technologies OneView system enables the dispatcher to see where the vehicle is located and how much product volume is left on board, or how much ullage is remaining.
“By partnering with expert companies like Pro-Fab Industries and Pedigree Technologies, we can offer additional utility and functionality to our customers,” said Greg McGillis, President and CEO of Titan Logix. “We are excited to add this integration to our portfolio of advanced technology fluid management ‘in the office’ solutions.”
Grant Cairns, Vice President and General Manager of the Pro-Fab Group of Companies stated, “We are thrilled to be working with world leaders Pedigree Technologies and Titan Logix to provide the most comprehensive remote and in-office fluid management solutions. We have used Titan Logix equipment for years on our Dura-Haul trailers and we will now be offering this complete system with the latest in GPS technology from Pedigree Technologies OneView in our products, in addition to providing in-field installations worldwide.”
