What to Consider When Selecting An Industrial High Level Tank Alarm
When selecting an industrial high-level tank alarm for bulk chemicals, there are several key factors to consider:
- Compatibility with the chemical: The alarm must be compatible with the chemical being stored in the tank. This includes being able to withstand the chemical’s specific gravity, temperature range, and any corrosive or abrasive properties. It is important to check the chemical compatibility with the material of the alarm and its components.
- Reliability: The alarm must be reliable and able to function properly in the harsh conditions of an industrial setting. It should be able to withstand the elements and have a long service life.
- Sensitivity: The alarm should be sensitive enough to detect the high-level of the chemical in the tank, but not so sensitive that it is triggered by small variations in the level.
- Audibility: The alarm should be audible enough to be heard throughout the facility, even in noisy environments. This can be accomplished through a loud alarm or a strobe light.
- Remote monitoring: The alarm should have the capability of remote monitoring, so that the level of the tank can be monitored remotely, even from a different location.
- Safety Features: The alarm should have safety features such as automatic shut-off or emergency shutdown in case of emergency.
- Ease of installation and maintenance: The alarm should be easy to install and maintain. This includes being able to access the alarm for cleaning and maintenance, and having clear instructions for how to troubleshoot and fix any problems that may arise.
- Compliance: The alarm should comply with all relevant industry regulations and safety standards.
In summary, when selecting an industrial high-level tank alarm for bulk chemicals it is important to consider the chemical compatibility, reliability, sensitivity, audibility, remote monitoring, safety features, ease of installation and maintenance and compliance with industry regulations.
