Remote and Continuous Floating Roof Monitoring for Storage Terminal Safety Podcast

October 22, 2020

Floating roof storage tanks have become an integral part of the storage terminal industry by reducing losses from evaporated, stored product. They also are essential to maintaining environmental compliance, by reducing potential emissions caused by evaporation. However, they can come with their own set of maintenance challenges.

Common issues include roofs sinking causing product contamination and weather conditions. Accumulated snow and rainwater can cause roofs to tilt compromising their overall effectiveness. Facility managers can mitigate these challenges with thorough and regular check-ups which now can be done remotely with wirelessly captured, floating roof monitoring.

In this storage terminal safety podcast series podcast, we are joined by Emerson's Per Skogberg and Christoffer Hoffmann. We discuss how predictable tank incidents can become preventable with Remote and Continuous Floating Roof Monitoring.

Jim: Hi, everyone. This is Jim Cahill from the "Emerson Automation Experts Blog." And today, we have a podcast, part of the "Enabling Storage Terminal Safety" podcast series. And today, we're going to talk about mitigating tank damage with floating roof monitoring. And I'm joined by Per Skogberg and Christoffer Hoffmann. And I guess to get started, why don't we start with you, Per? Could you give us a little bit, introduce yourself, tell us a little bit about what's your title, and your education, and background?

Per: Yeah, sure. I'm a solutions manager at Emerson, working with our tank gauging system. I studied Industrial Engineering and Management at university and have a Master of Science in Management and Economics of Innovation. I've been with Emerson now for six years, just about, in a few different roles but actually always working with our tank gauging business.

Jim: That's great. And Chris, could you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Christoffer: Absolutely, Jim.
