iTank uses the IoT to enable M2M (machine-to-machine) connectivity that allows remote monitoring of tank fill levels, then leverages the data to optimize distribution routes, improve logistics and enhance inventory management.

Cloud-based and highly-scalable, iTank includes an intelligent web-based management application that takes advantage of the IoT to allow users access to real-time data collected from tank monitors, optimized route schedules, and alerts from the iTank application.


Use Cases

Sierra Wireless iTank supports both single tanks and tank farms, including those that require intrinsically safe environments and GPS tracking.

Lubes & Fuels

The iTank solution is easily implemented for all types of oil tanks including heating oil, diesel, and heavy oil and lubricants.


Propane & Other Gas Tanks

iTank is an intrinsically safe solution that allows distributors to maintain control over propane tank monitoring and distribution.

Benefits
  • Eliminate manual tank readings and decrease inventory shrinkage.
  • Eliminate emergency deliveries while maximizing delivery and pickup quantities.
  • Save on fuel, staff time, and wear-and-tear on the delivery fleet.
  • Minimize time spent on inventory management.
  • Offer customized delivery solutions that improve service delivery.
Our Solution

The iTank Solution

iTank is a managed IoT solution that is fully integrated from device to cloud bringing together sensored telemetry devices, wireless technologies, and a dedicated application to enable data monitoring, transmission, and data intelligence. The hardware devices are easy to install and built to monitor virtually any bulk liquid tank storage containing lubes and fuels, water, or propane.

To implement iTank:

Devices are installed on each tank. The devices send data (such as tank level measurements, fuel temperature, status parameters) wirelessly to the cloud for processing by the iTank application where users can view reports and route optimization schedules.

The iTank application optimizes route planning for deliveries, provides actionable alerts on tank deployments by location, and displays real-time reports of fill levels, inventory, and other status data.

iTank helps increase operational efficiencies, reduce miles driven, eliminate emergency deliveries and improve ROI, making it easy and cost-effective to enable remote tank monitoring.
