Tank Level Alarm Overfill Prevention
Installing a high level alarm for overfill protection on tanks containing chemical liquids is important because it can help to prevent spills and leaks, which can have serious consequences for the environment, human health, and the operation of the facility.
An overfill alarm system is designed to detect when the liquid level in a tank exceeds a preset level and to sound an alarm or take other appropriate action to prevent further filling of the tank. This can help to prevent spills and leaks caused by the tank overflowing, which can cause damage to the surrounding area, harm to wildlife, and potential damage to other equipment.
Additionally, overfilling a tank can cause structural damage to the tank itself. A high level alarm system can help to prevent such damage by alerting operators to the high level and allowing them to take action to prevent further filling of the tank.
Furthermore, in the event of an overfill, a high level alarm can protect the tank integrity in case of chemical reactions, pressure increase or even explosion.
In summary, installing a high level alarm for overfill protection on tanks containing chemical liquids is important to prevent spills and leaks, and to protect the surrounding environment, human health and other equipment from damage, and also the tank from structural damage or even chemical reactions, pressure increase or explosion. It’s an essential safety measure and should be part of the facility’s safety protocol.
