Road tanker calibration of any complex designs, such as horizontal tanks, rectangle-shaped tanks, oval-shaped tanks, etc., can be calibrated using EIWAA’s unique laser tank calibration approach. EIWAA’s calibration chart is valid for two years or until any significant repairs or alterations that would reduce a storage tank’s volumetric capacity. Depending on the customer’s needs and the dip chart, dip sticks are offered. A customized calibration certificate, commonly known as the dip chart, is issued after the road tanker’s calibration is completed. The truck owner, driver, or any other interested party can determine the precise amount of product in the tanker by using the dip chart that is provided by EIWAA.For future use, the EIWAA provides a tanker dip chart or tanker calibration chart with temperature correction tables in both electronic and laminated hard copy formats.
Why the tanker calibration chart called Dip Chart…?
One can estimate how much content is in a tank by dipping it. The reading from the measuring device and the contents of the tank do not have a linear connection unless the tank is completely rectangular. In other words, for each value, the change in volume per unit measurement varies.
How to perform dip tape measurement in an elliptical tank..?
You’ll be able to obtain a dip measurement that is reasonably precise by using the steps below.
- Open the fill cap on top of the tanker by using a large wrench.
- Gently extend a graduated rod or metal tape measure down into the fuel until you reach the bottom. Make sure you go straight; measurements taken at an angle will produce data that are distorted or inaccurate.
- Bring your dip tape out of out of the tank gradually until you can see or feel the spot where it made contact with the liquid
- Recall the measurement or ask a helper to record it.
- Use a rag or paper towel to dry the measurement device’s damp area.
- Replace the tank’s fill cover securely.
