Temperature Monitoring at a Tank Farm

Application

Temperature monitoring at a tank farm

  • Temperature monitoring of a tank farm that is about 400 m away from the office.
  • Many vehicles and lorries pass or park on the road between the office and the tank farm.

Challenge

  • Vehicles and trucks become obstacles to the radio path, making wireless communication unstable.

Solutions

  • Wireless temperature measurement
    Gateway x1, transmitter (YTA) x1, repeater x2 (The 2 repeaters are for redundancy)
  • Extended antenna to circumvent obstacles and improve the radio path for stable measurement (communication was unstable when the height of the antenna was low).

Benefits

  • ISA100 longer communication range
  • Robust communication with lower packet error rates.

Industries

  • Chimie

    Chemical plants rely on continuous and batch production processes, each posing different requirements for a control system. A continuous process calls for a robust and stable control system that will not fail and cause the shutdown of a production line, whereas the emphasis with a batch process is on having a control system that allows great flexibility in making adjustments to formulas, procedures, and the like. Both kinds of systems need to be managed in available quality history of product, and to be able to execute non-routine operations. With its extensive product portfolio, experienced systems engineers, and global sales and service network, Yokogawa has a solution for every plant process.
