Krill Bunkering System (KBS-100) uses mass-measuring metres to minimise inaccuracies found in Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) transfers.
Flow rate, temperature and density are displayed in real time and a ‘Bunkers in Progress’ display area shows the total volume of bunkers delivered, ticket number, start time and stop time. A ticket can be printed as soon as bunkering is completed.
Back-flow oil is measured as a negative and therefore reflected as bunkers not having been delivered. Bunker history, including aeration percentage, is stored.
The software uses Microsoft SQL server database technology to record sensor data and storage capacity. Any communication system supporting SMTP e-mail protocols may be used to transmit customisable reports and sensor data menus, in Excel format, to any number of operators, with no monthly fees or charges.
KBS100 can be ordered as a stand-alone system or incorporated into an existing Krill system.
“The KBS-100 was developed at the request of many of our clients, for a variety of applications,” said Brian Staton, vice-president of sales and marketing. “They told us what they needed and how they wanted the information to be displayed. We have paid close attention to their input in developing this product.”
