Tank List

Tank List

The tank list is where you keep track of the fluid levels of tanks you service. Each tank is listed by name and additional tanks can be added by selecting the “Tank+” option.
The tanks are organized by leases so you can easily keep track of them.

If you select the “Edit” button in the upper right, you can delete or remove a tank from the list. By using the control on the right of each row, you can rearrange the rows as needed. This allows you to move a tank to the proper lease.

When a tank is first added it is placed in an “Uncategorized” group. In order to associate a tank with a lease, you must move the tank to the proper lease using the edit feature.

By selcting the “arrow” button on the right of each row, you can update the information for an individual tank.

Data, Plot, Notes & Tickets

These options allow you to gather tank level data, plot tank level data for the individual tank selected, add a note, or add a run ticket to the selected tank. The options are selected by touching the buttons at the bottom of the screen. As each of the option buttons are touched, you will notice that the table of tanks changes to indicate which options is available.

Data Option: When the Tank List screen is first displayed, a small tank image is displayed and the word “Data” appears on each tank line. When a tank line is touched, the tank level screen is displayed.

Plot Options: If you touch the “Plot” button, you will notice that the table changes and a small plot image is displayed and the word “Plot” appears on each tank line. When a tank line is touched, a plot of the tank data is displayed.

Note Option: If you touch the “Note+” button, you will notice that the table changes, and a small notepad image is displayed and the word “Note” appears on each tank line. When a tank line is touched, a list of notes associated with that tank is displayed.

Ticket Option: If you touch the “Ticket+” button you will notice that the table changes, and a small truck image is displayed and the word “Ticket” appears on each tank line. When a tank line is touched, a list of pick-up tickets for that tank is displayed.

Tank Info

Add Tank Information

If you select the “Tank+” button at the bottom of the screen, the New Tank Setup Screen is displayed. This screen allows you to add a new tank.

The name field is always required, and for tanks you must enter the diameter and height, in order for the program to be able to calculate the number of barrels from the level reading you will enter.

Alternatively you can supply a “multiplier” that will be used to calculate the number of barrels from the level reading. If the multiplier is present, the diameter and height will be ignored.

The “picker” at the bottom of the screen allows you to select a tank image. There are a variety of different tanks to choose from, and new tank images will be added with each release of the app. If you would like to submit a tank image, email us a high-resolution photo.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tank LevelTank Level Data

This screen is where the tank level data is entered, using the sliding ruler on the right-hand side. You will notice that as the ruler is moved, the relative fluid level is also reflected by the black bar on the side of the tank image. Additionally, there are red indicators that show the previous level recorded.

As the ruler is moved, the numeric value of the measurement in feet along with the number of barrels is shown. The tank level can also be changed by moving your finger along the tank level indicator. The ruler will track the actual level.

The Ruler

The ruler is divided into 1/8 increments, and is designed to read like a measuring tape or stick. As the ruler is moved “down,” it is analogous to dropping the tape into the tank. As you move the ruler “up,” it is as if you are pulling the tape up, out of the tank. The black strip is similar to the oil on the tape, and when the reading is taken, the ruler should look like the tape, where the oil level is.

Tank Plot

The tank plot displays the data collected from each tank reading. At a glance, you can see the daily levels, and determine if the fill rates are normal, and see when the tank was emptied.

The graph can be moved and scaled with finger gestures for viewing specific areas in more detail.
