Liquid calibration is the most accurate method of calibration. It excels when used on irregular or difficult to measure bulk liquid storage such as tanker trucks, uneven bottoms of storage tanks, ships and barges, spherical tanks, rail car tanks, or small horizontal storage tanks. For any bulk liquid container, it is critical to accurately track the volume of liquid stored for efficient facility management and tank operation. Inaccurate or missing data can lead to errors such as tank rupture or floating roof collision. These errors are detrimental not only in repair costs, but production loss and environmental impact. If you need to know the amount of liquid transferred into or out of a storage tank, you will need professional storage tank calibration.
Liquid calibration is an involved, time-consuming process. Liquid (typically water) is metered into the tank at intervals, then the level of the liquid is measured. Either the full capacity or part of the capacity of a tank may be calibrated. It is also possible to verify the operation and weight of floating roofs during calibration. Our meters are verified against a state-certified volumetric prover to ensure their accuracy. All calculations are done by professionals with working knowledge of American Petroleum Institute (API), Institute of Petroleum (IP), and International Organization of Standardization (ISO) standards.
