초록

A system and method for automatically maximizing the quantity of a fluid which can be placed within a tank car having a maximum product weight based on the lesser of either an industry maximum product weight limit and a maximum calculated product weight at 2% outage. The system includes a magnetostrictive probe having a movable float and a temperature gauge thereon and mounted within a tank car, such that the float is capable of being buoyed by a fluid. The system further includes a fluid pump capable of activation to transfer fluid from a bulk source to...

청구항

What is claimed is: 1. A method for automatically maximizing the quantity of a fluid which can be placed within a tank car comprising the steps of: placing a probe having a movable float thereon within a tank car to be filled with a fluid, wherein the float is buoyed by the fluid; determining a maximum product weight of the fluid for the tank car using the lesser of either the maximum weight limit of the tank car and the maximum calculated product weight at 2% outage; wirelessly activating one of either a pump or a control valve to begin addition of flu...
