EMCO Wheaton Steps up to the Plate with New Tanker Control Unit

Emco Wheaton’s upgraded Dataplus II M353 Series cabinet is set to revolutionise the process of loading and unloading road tankers.

The new integrated Electronic Pump Metering System (EPMS) consolidates multiple pieces of equipment traditionally mounted around a road tanker into a single lightweight cabinet allowing for more efficient installation and operator use. 

The compact design means operators spend less time walking around the truck completing their tasks since all buttons are now positioned within the new cabinet.  This saves valuable time and minimizes the opportunity for trip accidents.

As well as taking safety, efficiency, and robustness into consideration, the EPMS has also been designed to help improve the aesthetics of the trucks due to the reduced amount of equipment on display as well as the sleek curved design of the cabinet door.

Emco Wheaton Regional Sales Manager Tom Cunningham, who was instrumental in the thought process behind the new design, along with Emco Wheaton’s Principal Engineer Dan Lewington, said: “Listening to your clients and gathering their feedback is critical for any company to improve their products.  We have been working closely with our tank builder partners for many years and their input was the catalyst for this new approach.  They wanted a more operator friendly design that did not compromise the tanker robustness and was visually appealing for their clients. The new curved cabinet design looks great and has been designed in such a way that if accidentally left open, once the vehicle starts moving it will close and stay closed due to the new locking mechanism we have used.

Dan added: “The curved door also means that if pipes are accidentally drawn over the front of the cabinet no damage would be done and the door will simply close reducing the risk of ripping or tearing the tubing.”

Designed for tankers with up to five compartments, the M535 Series control cabinet is intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres of Zone 1.

The modular stainless steel construction can be configured for a range of different compartments allowing for future upgrades.  A self-latching mechanism means that operators do not need to carry a key for the cabinet.

Tank truck systems are a vital part of the Emco Wheaton product range for builders and operators of road tankers.  All components are designed to operate reliably in hazardous conditions, ensuring that liquid is delivered without spillage or contamination, protecting the driver and the environment.

The new M535 Series EPMS confirms Emco Wheaton’s position in the market and its ability to provide engineering solutions at an affordable price.
