For the last few decades, analog non-permissive overfill-detection systems have sidelined tank trailers. Performing manual diagnostics to find the source of the problem, which likely requires a trip to a repair shop, is time-consuming, and it can halt a fuel delivery operation. Having to search for the cause of this type of tank trailer issue is becoming a thing of the past, however, as new digital systems offer real-time diagnosis.
Intuitive diagnostic maintenance technology, like that of CivaStar Advanced Overfill Sensors, gives fleet managers instant insight into any overfill conditions during loading and unloading right from the field. When a tank trailer returns with a non-permissive reading, techs will clearly see the issue and know how to address it.
As an example of how digitized alerts eliminate guesswork, a CivaStar probe tip will emit a red light via a blinking LED, alerting techs to a non-permissive status within a specific tank compartment. Then they can get to work right away to mitigate the issue and get the tanker back out for delivery.
More time to solve problems and less time spent head-scratching is a boon to uptime, and uptime is money in the fuel delivery game. Reactive care is not enough anymore; proactive solutions can be the difference for a successful fuel operation.
Taking its dedication to ease of maintenance and increased uptime a step further, Civacon has developed the CivaCommand Smart Tank System, a total tank trailer eco-system. This single interface integrates the self-diagnosis capabilities of CivaStar, air controls and cross-over prevention into a digital environment, where tank function is easy to monitor and control.
Delivering What's Next in Connectivity
CivaConnect, the integrated asset management program that allows CivaCommand to operate, provides a number of benefits for fuel delivery fleet managers looking to keep an eye on their vehicles, drivers and product. Features like advanced retain protection, maintenance schedules and trailer inventory, on top of real-time non-permissive alerts, provide the tools managers need to make their fleets run at peak efficiency. This innovation also gives CivaCommand the ability to shape preventative maintenance schedules, saving even more time.
