EnviroEYE introduces the Floating Roof Drain Guard System

EnviroEYE has created the Floating Roof Drain Guard System, which eliminates potential contamination, permit violations, tank failures and extended downtime of above ground storage tanks.

It’s all about reducing risk and protecting your stored petroleum. For the first time you can use EnviroEYE’s Floating Roof Drain Guard System to mitigate unforeseen petroleum spills and possible EPA problems. Whether you keep your roof drain open or closed during normal operation, EnviroEYE’s new technology can minimise your risk and alert you to any contamination by hydrocarbons. This eliminates any need for in-person oversight 24/7, hands free electronic monitoring can watch while employees are not onsite It saves Tank Farm operators both time and money in addition to reducing the risk factors.

The new Floating Roof Drain Guard System by EnviroEYE minimises your risk as its flow chamber includes a hydrocarbon sensor that can be set to a desired level of sensitivity. The sensor can detect the presence of hydrocarbons, signal the valve to close and prevent release of the storage tank contents. The system can be programmed to deploy a customised alert and eliminates the need for onsite (as much) monitoring.

"At our facility, we have chosen to keep our floating roof drains open due to unpredictable severe weather. Keeping the roof drains open leaves the facility vulnerable to a potential product release should a failure occur within the floating roof drain system. This roof drain monitoring system eliminates that vulnerability with a detection system that closes the roof drain valve should it detect any product. As terminal manager, I sleep better at night knowing that EnviroEYE is on the job 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” said Dan Silvestro, Key West Pipeline Company.
