(SGT, Inc.) (http://www.sgtinc.com),
the leading provider
of innovative end-to-end spill prevention solutions for the fuel
movement and petrochemical industry, announced today the launch
of their upgraded GuardDogT and the new GuardDog DataLogger System
IIIT. The new GuardDog Independent Secondary Shutoff Control System®
can now be networked enabling connectivity to the newly released
GuardDog DataLogger System III.
already delivered a ZERO spill performance for nearly three years,
the GuardDog's patented predictive intelligence delivers performance
beyond that of outdated open loop overfill detection controls. GuardDog
monitors and improves the performance of your facility's infrastructure
twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
terminal managers wonder what the drivers are doing in their facility
while they aren't watching or when the facility is unmanned. All
terminal managers wonder how many times the overfill probes have
gotten wet inside each of the tanker truck compartments loaded.
All terminal managers wonder when the next valve will fail causing
a spill. All terminal managers wish they would know when their next
valve would fail so they can act to prevent a spill. Most terminal
managers wish they could prevent product theft in their facility.
Not only has the GuardDog proven that it can prevent such things
from happening, but now used in conjunction with the GuardDog DataLogger
System III enables terminal management to get a dynamic view of
terminal's performance. This includes full accounting of overfill
signals, ground disconnects, flow control valve performance, attempted
product theft, and many more data points. The GuardDog DataLogger
System III can easily be integrated with any ODBC compliant database
program. Once in the database, this data enables the development
of powerful analytics that will help management improve their facilities'
performance and increase bottom-line profitability.
am very excited to announce the launch of both these products which
enable SpillGuard Technologies' customers to improve the way they
do business," said Peter A. Mantas, president and CEO of SpillGuard
Technologies. "We continue to focus our efforts on delivering innovative
solutions that put the spotlight on prevention, not response. If
we can help our customers predict and prevent potentially catastrophic
events, we are providing them the highest value possible."
is the first independent secondary shutoff control system. It is
quickly becoming the industry's defacto standard for spill prevention.
Developed from the ground up to protect lives, the environment,
and security. The GuardDog's patented design continuously monitors
from 1 to 8 loading or transfer streams per unit. Built with
the future in mind, its innovative design ensures American Petroleum
Institute's (API) RP1004 compliance, reduces installation costs,
streamlines operations, reduces or eliminates the risks of spills,
detects leaks and even detects attempted product theft.
conditions The GuardDog is silent until it detects a catastrophic
valve failure. Springing to action, the GuardDog automatically
shuts down pumps; closes storage tank base valves and locks out
the loading operation while alerting management personnel of the
problem and providing an opportunity for investigation. The GuardDog
empowers management with complete control -- not allowing loading
to continue or resume until management determines it is safe to
load again by initiating a keyed system reset switch.
flexible, the GuardDog is easily integrated into the Terminal Management
System at tank truck, rail car, commercial and military aviation
refueling and marine ship and barge loading operation facilities.
A Typical configuration requires only one "GuardDog" unit per load
lane. The unit works in concert with SGT Inc's Pump & Valve
Controller and other existing safety components and emergency shutdown
circuits to provide a fail-safe mechanism for stopping flow when
a valve failure is detected. Call 1-925-363-1585 for more
