Jun 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Hi-G-Tek (www.higtek.com), a developer of RFID (radio frequency identification) sensing and control systems for tracking high-value cargo and sensitive materials, has announced a strategic partnership with Emco Wheaton (www.gardnerdenver.com/), a manufacturer of products for the safe handling of hazardous fluids. This partnership is designed to supply a range of wireless RFID sealed delivery systems for liquid petroleum and fuel-oil road tankers.
Product security, in terms of both quality and control, has become increasingly important as energy prices rise. As such, Emco Wheaton has launched a wireless Sealed Cargo System (SCS) that uses Hi-G-Tek's Pro-Active technology. The SCS provides a unique and accurate monitoring system for individual compartment valves and manhole covers, resulting in real-time tracking from terminal to delivery point.
Key elements of the system include immediate event alerts and monitoring of the tank truck apertures, global positioning system (GPS) tracking, fleet management and back-office interface, and simple installation on existing road tankers.
