Radar TLIs Help to Eliminate Repair Costs & Time

      4/12/2001

Today's TLIs often require additional tank entries just to ensure they are operating properly, nullifying the benefits of closed-system indicators. Components also suffer high failure rates and the expense of merely opening a tank runs to $25,000, plus any repair costs. But now, with the introduction of radar tank level indicators, NAVSEA has realized non-invasive monitoring. Unlike conventional TLIs currently used in the US Fleet, radar TLIs do not rely on cumbersome and unstable cables and transmitters.

Since radar TLIs are mounted outside of the tank, all repairs or maintenance is performed without tank entry, eliminating those costs. A product of the Engineering for Reduced Maintenance program, radar TLIs in a sense, "look" into a tank through a pipe or sounding tube, measuring fluid height by analyzing reflected signals from within. The elimination of tank entry for TLI maintenance offers a great return on investment for the Fleet, by eliminating the costs of cleaning and gas-free certification of the tanks. In fact, NAVSEA is estimating a $115.7-million investment return by replacing existing TLIs Fleet-wide.
