Guard Level® Fuel Management System
The Fuel Management System (FMS) captures and reports a variety of vessel data specifically related to fuel use and efficiency. Typically all data points are retained on the Master Embedded Computor (located in the gauging cabinet) for 30 days with the exception of Daily Fuel Consumption and Daily Distance Traveled.
These two values are kept indefinitely to provide historic vessel consumption/efficiency reporting. The time-stamped, raw data values are captured by the FMS at varying intervals.
By utilizing the FMS Netbook, the system provides several methods for the crew to view and visualize consumption/efficiency data with a real-time means of monitoring the current voyage, bunkering operations or fuel tank levels. Next, the FMS presents the Fuel Usage History display which enables the crew to review the vessel’s fuel consumption and efficiency for a specified period of time.
Lastly, the FMS provides the Daily Vessel Report which summarizes vessel performance and activities for a 24 hour period. This report is scheduled to be captured at a set time of day, specified by the customer.
Custody Accuracy Tank Strapping Tables
The Custody Accuracy Tank Strapping table generator accurately measures volume through a flow meter fill method into the tank. The fill method accounts for all tank variations and provides the most accurate volume tables. The Custody Accuracy Tank Strapping Tables relies on computer generated tank tables within ¼” accuracy.
Level values generated from the installed DFG/DLI sensors are incremented at ¼” levels. Corresponding volume value generated from Bergan supplied Coriolis 2” flow meter (0.1% accuracy) and HART interface.
- • Built in computer generated tank tables (¼” increment) with digital accuracy
- • Level values generated from the installed DFG/DLI sensors are incremented at ¼” levels
- • Corresponding volume values generated from Bergan supplied portable Coriolis 2” flow meter (0.1% accuracy) and HART interface
- • Volume generated fully compensates for internal structures and tank shapes
- • Top and bottom outside DFG/DLI measurement range not measured, but volume will be measured up to the 1st measurement point and from the last measurement point until full
- • Owner to provide water or fuel for actual filling process
- • Vessel/tank to be on even keel during calibration process
- • Hard copies and Excel data files provided
