Title
(EN) PORTABLE, DUAL-CHAMBERED, SILO TANK FUELING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME PORTABLE DE RAVITAILLEMENT EN CARBURANT DE SILO VERTICAL À DEUX CHAMBRES
Abstract
(EN)
A fleet refueling silo tank system gravity feeds fuel through hoses to fleet units without requiring pressurizing pumps. Specialized valves at the fleet unit fuel tanks prevent vapor escape and admit fuel at low, gravity fed pressures. The cylindrical silo tank includes an upper, gravity feed dispensing chamber and a lower reservoir chamber. A fuel pump doubles as means for moving fuel from the reservoir chamber to the dispensing chamber and for refilling the reservoir from fuel delivery trucks. Onboard telemetry transmits fuel consumption and flow rates wirelessly to a control center where operators monitor safety parameters in real time. Stored data may be analyzed to calculate fleet unit maintenance and service intervals. A tractor trailer hauls the silo tank horizontally on roads and highways and includes a gantry and hydraulic lifts to erect the silo tank into vertical operating position supported by a built-in platform.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système de silo vertical de ravitaillement de flotte qui alimente en carburant par gravité des unités de flotte sans nécessiter de pompes de mise sous pression. Des vannes spécialisées au niveau des réservoirs de carburant des unités de flotte permettent de prévenir la fuite de vapeurs et reçoivent le carburant à des basses pressions alimentées par gravité. Le silo cylindrique comprend une chambre de distribution supérieure alimentée par gravité et une chambre de réservoir inférieure. Une pompe à carburant sert de moyen complémentaire pour déplacer le carburant, de la chambre de réservoir vers la chambre de distribution et pour remplir le réservoir à partir de camions de distribution de carburant. Des moyens télémétriques embarqués transmettent sans fil la consommation de carburant et les débits à un centre de commande, dans lequel des opérateurs surveillent des paramètres de sécurité en temps réel. Des données stockées peuvent être analysées pour calculer des intervalles de maintenance et d'entretien des unités de flotte. Une remorque de tracteur permet de déplacer le silo horizontalement sur des routes et des autoroutes, et comprend un portique et des élévateurs hydrauliques pour ériger le silo dans une position verticale de fonctionnement, supportée par une plate-forme intégrée.
