Posted on November 06, 2014
The TankLink 95 is Certified Class 1, Division 1 for Use in Hazardous Locations
Houston, TX (OilComm Booth #726) – November 6, 2014 – TankLink, a leader in wireless remote tank monitoring, introduces the new TankLink 95 wireless monitoring solution for 3G/4G networks. The TankLink 95 is an intrinsically safe tank monitoring solution, certified to U.S. standards for operation in areas designated as Class 1, Division 1 hazardous locations. The TankLink 95 addresses safety regulations in industrial plants and other areas where the potential for fires and explosions is a concern.
The TankLink 95 was developed to meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations for Class I hazardous locations where flammable vapors and gases may be present and Division 1 locations where ignitable concentrations of hazards exist under normal operation conditions. As part of the development process, TankLink has pilot tested the solution with leading chemical plant operators and the TankLink 95 has been successfully certified by CSA Group.
“We listened to the needs of chemical industry leaders and are pleased to have developed TankLink’s first Class 1, Div 1 monitoring device in a form factor as sleek and unobtrusive as the TankLink 95,” said Pat Barron, VP and General Manager of TankLink. “Now with TankLink and TankData Online, plant operators can help maximize employee safety and monitor tanks in hazardous locations remotely for critical level, location, daily usage history information and more, without actually being in those hazardous areas.”
The TankLink 95 wireless monitoring solution is an intrinsically safe product that helps plant operators, managers and compliance officers monitor chemicals in vented and unvented storage tanks in hazardous locations, giving them access to critical tank level data at their fingertips, regardless of the tank’s location.
The unique low-profile, domed form factor of the TankLink 95 makes it ideal for monitoring stackable tanks, totes and shipping containers. The electronics are housed safely in the portion of the device recessed within the tank, and the antennae are under the domed cover. Additionally, the TankLink 95 features integrated GPS functionality for precise asset location and firmware updates are completed over-the-air without user involvement.
