FAFNIR Displays Latest Safety and Environmental Technologies at UNITI EXPO 2016

FAFNIR are pleased to return to one of Europe’s largest international trade shows for the retail petroleum sector. The Hamburg-based company has been through a long period of consecutive growth and, as testament to this, are demonstrating a raft of new products to UNITI EXPO. These will further consolidate FAFNIR as a leading high-quality innovator in the area of safety and environmental control equipment for the petroleum industry.

The company’s new e-OPS (electronic Overfill Prevention System) for forecourt tanks makes its debut at UNITI, with an integral stainless steel construction that provides unparalleled durability even when exposed to aggressive additives. FAFNIR’s leading calorimetric technology ensures its e-OPS sets industry standards of reliability, enabling highly safe fuel deliveries with lower costs.

The Oil Separator with a new Sludge Sensor is another of the environmental solutions shown. The system responds to legislation demanding a monthly check of oil separator levels at forecourts. The new system continuously measures the oil layer thickness and its level of sludge, avoiding any manual intervention, hence saving labour cost and avoiding unnecessary clean-up of the separator.

Joining these innovations is the new TORRIX-M (Mobile) solution that enables liquid level measurement for moving tanks. The magnetostrictive sensor delivers unmatched levels of precision, quality and durability, having been extensively tested against shocks and high acceleration. TORRIX-M enables wetstock visibility and reconciliation from the depot to the forecourt. Furthermore, TORRIX-M can replace conventional meters on road tankers, weighing just a fraction of those – this maximises tank ullage capacity and truck fuel economy.

In addition, visitors to the FAFNIR stand will be able to see most of the product range, including the VISY automatic tank gauge, Insite360 cloud-based Advanced Services, SECON remote monitoring system and the VISY-Flex tall-tank probe. As from the 13th of June you will be able to access additional information on all these products at uniti-fafnir.com. The FAFNIR team is looking forward for your visit to the company’s stand at Hall 3, booth 3A13 where you can know more about these solutions.
