Introducing Colibri Automatic Tank Gauge
Franklin Fueling Systems launched the next revolution in petroleum equipment as it launched the Colibri automatic tank gauge. This innovative new product combines a superior mix of basic, straightforward functionality and a powerful tank gauge platform to seamlessly form an inventory information system that station owners around the world can easily and affordably utilize.
Colibri is the ideal solution for station owners who understand the importance and benefits of owning an automatic tank gauge but also may not require all of the functions that other, more complex tank gauges may offer. Colibri can save time and eliminate human error by allowing station personnel to remotely monitor fuel inventory, providing them with accurate and reliable information in which they can have confidence, as opposed to the possibly inaccurate and sometimes hazardous method of manually "sticking" tanks.
Colibri provides vital information such as leak test data, temperature readings, density measurement, net/gross volume and water volume; all of which are available to be viewed on a color LCD touch screen or via the standard Colibri Web interface. The Colibri Ethernet port and Web interface allow personnel to view vital information from a standard Internet browser from anywhere in the world while the powerful rules system enables the use of emails and text messages as a means to communicate tank events such as completed leak test and low product level or water intrusion alarms.
"The incredible amount of research and effort put into the development of Colibri allows Franklin Fueling Systems to offer a powerful yet economical tank gauge, which is so user-friendly that any station personnel around the globe will be able to take advantage of all of the features Colibri has to offer," said Jay Walsh, vice president of Business Development for Franklin Fueling Systems.
An important consideration in the development of Colibri was to create a platform that stations owners in emerging markets could utilize right out of the box as easily as possible. "The color LCD touch screen, user-friendly icon-based navigation and multiple language settings make Colibri a truly global solution for the market of station owners around the world who require an economical and dependable, yet extremely effective tank gauge," said Walsh. "The industry has yet to see such a product that caters to the specific needs of this demographic. Another advantage of Colibri is that we have made it as economically priced as possible, creating even further value for station owners."
Franklin Fueling Systems will begin accepting orders for Colibri on December 1, 2009.
