Dunraven takes it to the Max at FPS EXPO
14th April 2011
Dunraven Systems Limited, manufacturers of Apollo electronic oil level monitors has launched its new Apollo MaxFill Drivers' Handheld Unit and Apollo XT Electronic Oil Level Monitor. The official introduction of the Apollo MaxFill and Apollo XT, followed the unveiling of the revolutionary Apollo Smart Heating Oil Energy Monitor at FPS EXPO in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
Utilising tried, tested and proven technologies, Apollo branded products have transformed the storage tank monitoring sector in Britain, Ireland and further afield. Today, Apollo products are fitted by more independent oil tank manufacturers in the UK and Ireland, than any other comparable system.
"The new Apollo XT Remote has been engineered especially for installations where the oil storage tank incorporates an offset fill arrangement or is installed underground. Such installations are often difficult to fill safely and Apollo XT Remote is a unique response to a unique challenge.", says Dunraven's Managing Director, Gerry Jones.
"The Apollo XT Remote incorporates a tanktop ultrasonic measurement sensor, which determines the level of oil inside the tank. This information is relayed via a hardwired connection to a local transmitter unit, with integral LCD display, allowing fuel delivery personnel to monitor the level of fuel inside the tank before, during and after refueling. Usefully, the transmitter unit also relays the data wirelessly to a standard Apollo receiver unit. This device cleverly and conveniently plugs into a standard electrical socket, allowing consumers to monitor their tank without leaving their home or office."
Apollo XT Remote is also ideal for oil storage tanks installed above safe working heights, and eliminates the requirement to inspect the contents of the tank via ladders, prior to the commencement of refuelling.
Complementing the Apollo XT Remote, is Dunraven's new MaxFill Handheld Drivers' Unit which is currently the only in-production device of its type available. The result of an intensive, customer led development process - MaxFill answers a requirement from fuel distributors for a wireless handheld device to allow drivers to monitor tank levels, before and after the commencement of refueling.
"Apollo MaxFill is compatible with any tank incorporating an Apollo electronic oil level monitor. It allows delivery personnel to quickly and easily ascertain the level of fuel inside the tank, before refueling commences. During filling, operators can monitor progress via an on-screen LCD display. When the level of fuel inside the tank reaches the maximum permissible level, visual and audible warning alarms are activated.", explains Gerry.
Like every Apollo product, the latest additions to the range are suitable for use with almost any storage tank up to 3 metres tall, storing Admixtures, Agricultural Fuel Oil, Biodiesel, Diesel, Bioheating Oil, Heating Oil, Kerosene, Lubricants, Specialty Chemicals, Waste Oil and Water.
