Question
Dear Don

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storage_tank

It may or may not be useful, but is it possible to design and develop a system "Storage Tank Electronic Monitoring Meter with a display unit" which will allow us to view the Level of Liquid viz water, oil, gas etc storage in the Storage Tank and also possibly able to control other Storage Tank operations viz Start, Stop, Pause etc liquid, gas etc flow in the Storage Tank. The Storage Tank Electronic Monitoring Meter will have Push buttons GUI Interface.

The Electronic Monitoring meter system will be wired or wireless.

Is it feasible to design the above Electronic Monitoring Meter for Storage Tanks ?.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
This is feasible. Actually, I have seen these very monitoring systems aboard cargo vessels and LNG (Liquified Natural Gas) carriers. Although it has been several years since I viewed these I am positive that they had the characteristics you have described. One company that creates these types of monitoring systems is Johnsons Controls, but there are many, even Grumman Aerospace makes controls like the one you are describing.
