Instructions for the receipt of heating oil

  1. WE CALCULATE THE EXACT DIMENSIONS OF THE TANK
    This means we know how many liters correspond to each centimeter of its height. This can be calculated as follows (when the tank is rectangular or square):

    Quantity (liters per centimeter of height)= Length(in cm) X Width(in cm): 1000

    Example: A rectangular tank, which is 200 cm long and 100 cm wide has 12 centimeters of oil. After the receipt of the oil, the level has risen to 88 cm. Solution: Quantity (liters per centimeter of height)= (200 X 100):1000=20 liters per centimeter. We have received 88-12=76 centimeters and, therefore, 76 X 20 = 1,520 liters of oil.

  2. THE CORRECT RECEIPT PROCEDURE
    During the measurement with a meter, the bar must:
    • 1st step: we measure the level of oil before the receipt (preliminary measurement)
    • 2nd step: we receive the heating oil
    • 3rd step: we measure the level after the receipt of the product (subsequent measurement)
    These steps are taken in presence of the driver of the tank vehicle or his assistant.
    The difference in the height of the level determines the quantity of oil received.

  3. MEASUREMENT PROCEDURE
    During the measurement with a meter, the bar must:
    • Be placed in a vertical position in relation to the tank
    • Be placed at the same measurement point before the receipt (preliminary measurement) and after the receipt (subsequent measurement) of the oil.
    • Touch the bottom of tank.
    • Be rigid and not bend.
    Additionally:
    Before performing the subsequent measurement, we must wait for 2-3 minutes, in order for the surface of the oil surface to be still.
    We make sure that the content of the hose has fully emptied into our tank.

  4. WE ALSO ENSURE
    To ensure correct receipt, we must also ensure that:
    • o The walls of our tank are vertical and its bottom is horizontal. The oil tank walls may have been deformed, due to the weight of the oil, and be uneven, which means that the quantity received is larger than the quantity measured with the bar.
    • o The measurement bar used is correctly calibrated.
