The risk of AST floating roof failures is increasing as the population of tanks throughout the world ages. The FR-Tracker™ system was developed in cooperation with the petroleum industry as an effective and economical tool for accident prevention through continuous monitoring of key AST parameters.
The FR-Tracker™ monitoring system consists of three main components: Multi-Sensors, Repeaters, and Base Stations. To minimize installation and maintenance costs, the Multi-Sensors and Repeaters are battery-operated wireless devices with battery life expectancy exceeding 10 years.
AST floating roofs exhibit specific behaviour patterns prior to failure. The FR-Tracker™ system can detect these patterns and alert the tank operators.
