Level measurement in Väinö Paunu

Level measurement can be a matter of one millimetre

The Trident level measurement system is currently used by Väinö Paunu Oy. Level measurement is usually needed when industrial fluids are delivered in packages that are not of even quantity or when the level needs to be monitored for safety reasons. The accuracy requirements for level measurements become more pronounced the more valuable the product held in inventory is. 

Oil products have traditionally been perceived as belonging to this group. An additional challenge for these products is how to make use of the measurement results in the development of business operations. Labkotec’s most recent answer to this challenge is the Trident level monitoring system provided with state-of-the-art features.

The Tampere-based bus company Väinö Paunu Oy was among the first to put Trident to use at the end of 2014. CFO Juha Mustonen from Paunu says that the commissioning of the system went very smoothly.

“This is thanks to Labkotec’s professional skill and to the fact that they kept us well-informed of the progress of the project and its different stages. Following the commissioning of the new level monitoring system, we have been able to obtain clear benefits in the planning of deliveries and in the placing of orders, for example. Important financial benefits can also be obtained when the amount of fuel in the tank can be optimised to the correct level – the fuel must not run out, but financially speaking there should not be too much of it in the tank either.”
