An Industry-Wide Problem

In an industry traditionally plagued by inefficiencies and inaccuracies, Strait Gauge™ offers a game-changing approach that combines cutting-edge hardware with advanced software. At the heart of our innovation is the recognition of a critical need: the necessity to increase accuracy while simultaneously reducing costs associated with oil measurement and delivery.

With Strait Gauge™, oil companies can bid farewell to the era of approximations and uncertainties. Our system provides precise measurements of oil levels within transport tanks, eliminating guesswork and ensuring that every drop is accounted for.

The Traditional Method

The ball float system typically consists of a hollow metal or plastic ball attached to a rod or arm. This float is placed inside the tank, where it floats on the surface of the liquid being measured. As the liquid level changes, the float rises or falls accordingly. The movement of the float is typically connected to a mechanical gauge or indicator located outside the tank.

While this system can provide accurate measurements under ideal conditions, its accuracy may be affected by factors such as the size and shape of the tank, the viscosity of the liquid being measured, and the condition of the float mechanism.

The ball float system typically requires manual reading of the gauge by operators, which can be time consuming and potentially prone to human error.

Potential For Error

Think of the traditional ball float system as akin to a fuel gauge in your vehicle. Similar to how a fuel gauge provides only approximate readings, the ball float system measures liquid levels in fractions, ranging from empty to full. However, there's a margin of uncertainty associated with this method. Much like our fuel gauges, we can only estimate within a certain range how much liquid is in our tank.

Furthermore, the ball float system often registers a tank as full when it's only at %80 to 90% capacity. This discrepancy leaves operators with a significant amount of guesswork, introducing unnecessary uncertainties into the measurement process. This lack of precision can lead to inefficiencies and inaccuracies in operations, highlighting the need for a more reliable and precise solution.

This dead space typically amounts to 10-20 barrels (BBLs) or approximately 6-12% of the tank's unmeasurable capacity.
