Critical Mission

The Smart Controls Series – Critical Mission Fuel Transfer System (CMFTS) Fuel System Controls.

Intergraded Fuel System Tank Monitor / Pump Controller up to 10 main tanks and 10 day tanks, Duplex Fuel Polisher System and up to 10 Duplex Pump Sets all on one package.

Designed for use in critical applications requiring the highest degree of reliability such as backup power facilities, data centers, institutional boiler supply, and hospitals. The Smart Controls intelligently integrates all of the fuel system components into one simple automated package. The (CMFTS) is designed using state of the art equipment and technologies. The (CMFTS) integrates tank gauging and level monitoring, system leak detection, lead/lag fuel transfer pumps, a fuel polishing system, day tanks and return pumps and boiler supply into one complete system. All of the statuses and alarm conditions will be displayed on a Operator Interface Terminal (digital touch screen display). The complete system can be interfaced and monitored from most building management systems. If configured, this state of the art (CMFTS) can be monitored and controlled (multi level password protected) by any web browser. The (CMFTS) is engineered to the highest standards and is built and tested to UL508A standards and labeled accordantly.
