Meet EPA compliance while adding value to your services with a Greenscan license

Accurate and timely leak detection is incredibly important – not just for petroleum retailers, but any facility with underground fuel storage. And efficient reporting is a must.

The increased pressure to meet environmental compliance teamed with the high costs associated with accurate reporting and the higher-still costs in the event of fuel leaks has led to a growing demand for trustworthy leak detection.

Whether you manage this service through the SIR method or Automatic Tank Gauges, it’s not always easy to get right.

The goal is the same regardless of if you’re providing a service, or looking after your own leak detection in-house. You want guaranteed protection – from leaks, from costs, from non-compliance. You need leak detection management you can count on.

Unfortunately, a lot of leak detection management processes are pretty intrusive. Whether that’s through cloud-based shared private data or intrusive management of sensors and tech. Leak detection is important, but so is privacy.

If this sounds familiar, it’s time to think about leak detection and SIR differently.

Treat fuel system leak detection with the respect it deserves

Leak detection is one of the most vital aspects of fuel management. Regardless of business, facility, or location, there is a range of risks that come with it.

Many facilities face regulations from EPA compliance and are required to have sufficient leak detection and strong record-keeping to prove fuel system integrity. Even those who are not yet strictly regulated are adopting more environmentally safe practices. Others are driven to leak detection performance for financial and reputational losses that will occur from a leak.

Whatever your motivation, leak detection is imperative for running a compliant and profitable business.

Increasingly, the SIR [Statistical Inventory Reconciliation] method is the preferred method of leak detection thanks to its low impact, lower cost and less-intrusive nature. The right SIR software gives timely insights into fuel level changes, leak risk, and tank analytics. But it can be expensive.

Software as a service (SaaS) is one way more fuel companies are utilising the benefits of SIR software without the cost. SaaS allows existing software to be accessed and used by licensees for a minimal monthly fee giving you the chance to access some of the best leak-detection technology.
