Loading solution for tankers

from planning to calibration certification

Fitting a new tanker loading station with measuring equipment was a key part of Rhytank AG's request in spring 2015. The re-equipping with the latest technology was initiated to ensure the smooth loading of heating oil and eco heating oil on the new shipping route.

  • Loading of heating oil


  • High medium-independent measurement accuracy with Promass 84F

  • Online density measurement of the medium

  • Compact Promass measuring system without mechanically moving parts

  • Smooth project execution including calibration certification in accordance with European Measuring Instruments Directive MID/MI-005

  • Rhytank AG specializes in the transfer and storage of hazardous liquids such as heating oil, diesel, jet fuel, heavy oil, MTBE and a wide variety of chemicals. The favorite logistic partner of industry in north-west Switzerland offers a wide range of logistic services.

The requirements

An innovative complete system needed to be implemented with high measurement accuracy, product identification and reduced maintenance costs. The tight timetable and coordination of the calibration and tax certification posed additional requirements. Rhytank looked for a competent, reliable and flexible partner to fulfill these requirements. Endress+Hauser was entrusted with the role of complete supplier.

Solution provided by Endress+Hauser

Advice and planning constitute the foundations of every successful solution. In an extensive discussion with the customer, Endress+Hauser was able to clarify questions concerning explosion protection, design approval, place of installation, calibration legislation and customs provisions. The place of assembly for the different components was determined during a plant inspection. This meant that an entire solution concept with a detailed proposal could be presented very quickly.
