TITLE
Alarms for bitumen tanks
ARTICLE
Midland Quarry Products has improved upon the already high standards of its bitumen tank alarms. The tanks were fitted with integral level indicators with audible and/or visual high and low level alarms. However, as the Refined Bitumen Association recommends, high-level alarms independent of level indicators are also in place for a fail-safe system. This eliminates any overfilling.

To further enhance the system, and ensure that all members of staff can be made aware of an incident, a separate alarm has been installed within the PC control systems.
