Overfill Prevention and Inventory Monitoring

Overspills and overfills can be a major headache - and an expensive one, too. Running too low on a product (or even running out entirely) is also a pain to be avoided.

Accurate and reliable inventory management is vital in many industries. Whether you are a bulk supplier or a bulk user of a product, Vendor Managed Inventory (often referred to as VMI) can produce huge efficiency savings for your organisation. It offers advantages to both parties by enabling complete transparency between supplier and user without any security risk to either organisation. The implementation and running costs are extremely low. Still, the cost savings can be extremely high, with typical savings on haulage costs alone estimated to be between 5 and 20% - and that’s without the added advantages of improved production planning, reduced inventory and production lost time from product stock shortages.

Many customers require a package of instrumentation which may include level transmitters, pressure transmitters, alarm panels, display recorders or indicators. Hycontrol have been supplying complete solutions for many years, and our capability extends beyond merely supplying equipment within the UK, we can supply, install, commission and service a complete range of instrumentation. One company then has total responsibility for the complete level measurement solution.

Hycontrol engineers understand what needs to be built to meet the objective of clear displays of both tank contents and alarm conditions. Although many panel solutions from Hycontrol are of what might be considered a standard nature, many require a custom build and unique logic programming to ensure valves or heaters are turned ‘on’ or ‘off’ at the correct time in the right sequence.
