VITO LT

Temperature and water bottom measurement

The VITO LT is a member of the VITO family product line for temperature
Features and water bottom measurement the VITO LT is used for less demanding
requirements in comparison with the W&M approved VITO series.
Provides accurate liquid
temperature measurement Like any member of the VITO family, the VITO LT is a robust and
reliable device representing the leading edge in sensor technology, fully
Provides temperature complying with all major industrial standards such as ISO and API.
stratification profiles
Due to the large quantities and characteristics of products stored,
Requires no maintenance the temperature of the tanks content is rarely uniform. Single spot
temperature measurement cause a higher uncertainty of the average
API compliant product temperature, running into differences in stock accounting
of several thousands of US dollars for an average 50,000 cubic
meter storage tank. Not to mention the uncertainty in total storage
capacity of the tank farm. That is why the VITO LT sensors provide
average temperature of your stored product by averaging the emerged
temperature sensing elements to take the effect of product layers into
account. Optionally it measures the water level at the bottom of the tank
as well, to get the right figures for asset management calculations.

The VITO LT interface is a solid state electronic unit supplying the


measured data to any other field instrument. Power and transmission is
taken care of by using only a 2-core (twisted pair) cable between interface
and gauge. The intrinsically safe signals from the VITO LT comply with all
major safety requirements for use in hazardous areas.
Together with the Enraf tank gauges, the VITO LT contributes in solving
your accurate tank inventory management needs.
