Microbulk Telemetry

The Wise Telemetry microbulk system allows gas distributors to see real time supply and demand data at each of their microbulk customer’s sites.  This data improves delivery route planning, usage tracking, and future demand prediction.

The microbulk system operates on the principal of capacitance level monitoring.  As the liquid level changes in the tank , the probe’s electrical capacitance changes correspondingly.  Our device attaches directly to a capacitance probe that is installed into the microbulk tank and monitors the liquid fill level.  Once the liquid level falls below a predetermined threshold, the telemetry unit sends an alert via Wise Telemetry’s web-based monitoring software, allowing for timely deliveries.  When installed on a fleet of microbulk tanks, the data from our telemetry units can be fed into industrial routing software to ensure optimal delivery routes and no emergency deliveries.

FAQ

Which gases can be used with this system?

The Wise Telemetry microbulk system can be used with nitrogen, carbon dioxide, argon, helium, and will soon be available for oxygen.  Additional gases may be available upon request.

Can this system be retrofitted onto my existing microbulk tanks?

Yes.  The Wise Telemetry microbulk system can be retrofitted onto existing tanks, however, to install the capacitance probe, the tank needs to be empty.

Does this system require multiple pieces of hardware?

No.  The microbulk telemetry system is only one piece of hardware that both senses the liquid level and communicates these readings from the tank to our cloud computing system.

How does the device communicate data?

Our devices can communicate via Wi-Fi or cellular connections.

How do I access my data?

Data from Wise Telemetry devices can be accessed online via our secure web portal.  Alternatively, the Wise Telemetry system can interact with APIs of asset management and purchasing systems.
