Telemetry is a technology that uses sensors, communication devices and software to remotely collect, transmit and analyze data. Telemetry is used in a variety of industries, including aerospace, healthcare, agriculture and the energy industry.
One of the applications of telemetry is to measure and manage the contents of propane gas tanks. Propane is a form of gas used for heating, cooking, drying and industrial processes. Propane is stored in tanks that are placed outside or underground. It is important to know how much propane is left in the gas tank at your home so you can refill in time and not run out of gas.
Telemetry allows you to remotely monitor the contents of your propane gas tank through an app or a website. You can also receive automatic notification when the tank is nearly empty or if a malfunction occurs. This allows you to take timely action and prevent inconveniences.
You can also use telemetry to track and optimize propane consumption. For example, you can see how much propane you use per day, week or month and how that varies with the season, weather or activities. This allows you to save on your energy costs and reduce your CO2 emissions.
Telemetry offers several benefits to both propane users and suppliers. Below we list some of the benefits:
With telemetry, you can make the use of propane even more sustainable.
And the most sustainable thing there is? Biopropane combined with telemetry in your propane gas tank! Biopropane is a form of propane made from renewable sources such as vegetable oils or waste streams. It has the same properties and applications as regular propane, but is CO2 neutral. Currently, OK GAS as a propane gas supplier does not yet have the ability to supply biopropane. Of course, we are working on this behind the scenes.
Already a customer of ours? Then we use standard telemetry in your propane tank. Is OK GAS not yet your propane gas supplier? Then you can always inquire about the possibilities, or request a no-obligation quote. We are happy to help you!
