Fuel Tank Alarm Systems

West Fuel Systems Limited supply fuel tank alarms which are suitable for almost any application.

 

Tank alarm systems fall into three main categories.

 

Overfill & High Level alarms systems:

Warn the user if the tank has been, or is in danger of being, filled beyond its capacity. This prevents overflow of chemicals which can be, at best, wasteful and, at worst, harmful to your employees, your equipment, and the environment. The cost of chemical overflow and spillage in terms of clean-up, repair and potentially fines can be significant, so tank overfill alarms are an essential piece of equipment.

Tank low level alarm systems:

Warn you if the tank is nearly empty, ensuring that you are able to refill it in good time and avoiding a situation where vital machinery stops running.

Bund alarm systems:

Alert you if fluid has entered the bund tank, which could suggest that there is damage to either the interior or exterior wall of the bund tank, an issue which must be quickly remedied.

Whatever your requirements, West Fuel Systems limited can supply an alarm that suits. We supply alarms that detect just one of the above scenarios on a single tank, or a device that can provide alarms for all three scenarios, and even alarms that can detect inputs from up to three different tanks.

West Fuel Systems limited supply alarm options for both battery and mains powered alarms, and we also supply a wide range of compact tank alarms perfect for use in confined spaces. In addition, you can purchase remote warming devices that connect to a relay, allowing an alarm to sound in remote locations well away from the tank being monitored.

All of the overfill alarms & bund alarms as well as the fuel tank alarm range are manufactured & developed in the UK.  

These alarms can be used in AdBlue® tanks with one of our range of stainless steel floats, making them suitable for almost any application.

Why is a fuel tank alarm so important?

Put most simply, being unaware that your fuel level is low may lead to the inconvenience and down time of running out of fuel, or the cost implications of temporarily having to pay retail fuel prices. Not knowing your tank level is high is also a problem as you may find yourself in an overfill situation, resulting in loss of paid for fuel and the environmental costs. Whilst some tanks have an automatic overfill device installed, not all do, and therefore the fuel delivery driver needs to be alerted when the tank is reaching maximum capacity.

A tank gauge can visually indicate the level of the fuel, but requires someone to remember to check it. An audible diesel tank alarm can solve this issue, and by connecting the version with relays to an external alarm or BMS, the alarm state can be remotely monitored. On modern diesel storage tanks you will find both a gauge and an alarm.

CTS ATEX Approved Fuel Tank Alarm

For high or bund level

The ATEX Approved Fuel Tank Alarm system is designed for alerting the user of a high fluid level or that there is fluid within the bund, which may indicate a leak or rain water ingress. ATEX certified to Zone 1, this tank level alarm is suitable for tanks containing flammable liquids, provided that the probe used is suitable.

This ATEX tank alarm is battery powered for use on portable installations or sites where mains power is inaccessible. It benefits from a flashing red LED & 95db alarm which sounds to alert the user to a problem continuously for 120 seconds followed by a periodic beep for 60 minutes. This fuel tank level alarm has test battery, test alarm and alarm cancel functions for ease of use.

We offer a version that comes as standard with fuel tank probe for diesel, kerosene and JET A1 tanks, and a version without probe for other fluids such as petrol using a third party ATEX probe with solid stem.
