Blocked floating roof drains or overwhelming rainfall can cause floating roofs to exceed their designed maximum fluid depth on deck. The FR-Tracker™ system can detect when the fluid level is approaching designed limits, and inclination indicative of a sinking roof.
As with fluid accumulation, excess snowfall can place more weight on the floating roof than it is designed to handle. Snow layers on EFRTs typically have a layer of liquid at their bottom that is detectable by the FR-Tracker™ system's fluid level sensor.
A stuck seal, ladder or other equipment can lead to roof damage or even sinking. The FR-Tracker™ system can detect the tell-tale vibrations and roof inclination.
Seismic activity or any of a number of other factors can cause vibrations in the floating roof.
When positioned under the gauger's platform or other suitable obstacle, an FR-Tracker™ Multi-Sensor equipped with an optional overfill detection whisker warns when overfill conditions exist as indicated by the level of the floting roof. If needed, a target plate for the detection whisker may be affixed to the bottom of the FR-Tracker™ Repeater assembly.
