Bulk Chemical Tank Level Monitoring
Companies that do not have a precise distant view of the bulk chemical tank levels of their customers have a difficult time determining which of their customers require a refill on any given day. These businesses have little choice but to rely on previous information regarding customer use in order to forecast and schedule refills. This can lead to inefficiency as well as a loss in profits that can reach up to 45 percent1.
Up until fairly recently, businesses that distribute bulk chemical tank fluids would manually monitor tanks, checking each one, in turn, to ensure that they were not depleted of their contents. Over the course of time, businesses realized that “filling up” tanks and making emergency callouts at a moment’s notice was costing them a significant deal of money; it turned out that this was money that they did not require spending.
Companies are able to acquire accurate, up-to-the-minute information on the levels of their tanks thanks to solutions for remote tank monitoring, which helps them avoid runouts and unnecessary repair calls. These distributors have the ability to see at a glance, thanks to the information provided by bulk chemical tank level sensors located across the network, which of their clients’ tanks require refilling and which do not. Distributors are able to improve their response, which helps to reduce downtime, boost customer service, and lower stop costs thanks to this “new way” of remote tank monitoring.
How the system for monitoring bulk chemical tanks operates
Distributors of bulk chemical tank level fluids can monitor tank fill levels, usage, and temperature in real-time with the help of tank monitoring technologies, which can be remotely accessed.
Distributors, who have access to data in real-time, are able to:
Gain a deeper understanding, and improve the quality of your business judgments by doing so.
Routes and schedules should be optimized.
Improve the bulk chemical level of customer satisfaction by swiftly responding to the needs of the customers.
Reduce as much time as possible that is spent managing resources and inventory.
Tank monitoring systems make it possible for businesses to remotely monitor the bulk chemical fluid levels in their customers’ bulk chemical storage tanks, as the network of linked devices currently encompasses billions of units throughout the globe. The operation is as follows:
Sensors for the purpose of monitoring are fitted in each bulk chemical tank.
Bulk Chemical Tank-level measurements and other diagnostic data are analyzed in the cloud after being wirelessly transmitted there from the device.
On the management portal, which may be coupled with preexisting data sources or applications, fill levels, utilization, and other bulk chemical tank-level data are presented.
When businesses have access to large data sets, it is much simpler for them to identify irregularities and take preventative measures to ensure that adequate fill inventory levels are maintained. When businesses have the capacity to remotely monitor their tanks and assets, they are able to maintain control of their inventory, significantly reduce the number of service calls they are required to make, and as a result, realize significant cost reductions. Distributors get the capacity to make better-informed business decisions as a whole when they use monitoring solutions for their tanks.
Companies that use an end-to-end, cloud-based “knowledge solution” to monitor, manage, and/or distribute fuel, water, or other bulk lube and fluids are seeing significant reductions in the costs associated with these activities.
