Overfill Prevention Guide for Safer Operations

As the global supply of oil exceeds demand, not only do we continue to see falling prices, but also tank storage facilities with increasing inventories. From a process automation and management standpoint, having safe and reliable overfill prevention systems are critical for the hazardous materials these storage tanks contain.

In a quick 1:04 video, Emerson’s Carl-Johan Roos introduces an overfill prevention guide.

In the video he opens explaining that tank overfills are one of the largest safety concerns for process manufacturers and producers. This is because the consequences can be catastrophic and the probability is very high.

CJ shares how Emerson teamed up with the American Petroleum institute to create The Engineer’s Guide to Overfill Prevention. The guide includes information about the standards, codes and practices, risk assessment, proof testing, and additional information critical in preventing tank overfill conditions.
