ALLTEC has developed, using patented* innovative active monitoring technology, an easy way to monitor your existing lightning strike mitigation measures as well as those in the American Petroleum Institute (API) RP 545 and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 780.
The GroundGuardian® Floating Roof Tank Monitor (FRTM) detects hazardous changes in resistance of the electrical bond between the floating roof and the storage tank’s grounding system.
The GroundGuardian® FRTM continuously monitors for unsafe deviations in resistance produced by corrosion, product/wax accumulation, or shunt breakage. By using an intrinsically safe ground loop supervisor circuit, the state of your existing shunts are monitored. If a dangerous state change occurs, the GroundGuardian® FRTM can notify your facility’s Process Control monitoring system.
