Adopted for high accuracy and efficiency: tank sounding time has been shortened by 75%
Smart sounding scale Honesty was developed to solve the problem of fuel oil measuring errors due to the ’cappuccino effect’ in June 2014. It has now sold over 1,000 units and is installed on more than 500 vessels around the world.
"Honesty helps us greatly shorten measurement time"
"Even inexperienced crews could easily measure with Honesty"
"We are able to find where the liquid surface is accurately with this new scale, even with a transparent liquid"
"With Honesty, we sped up the ballast tank measurement at the port of call where cargo is handled quickly."
It is possible to reduce the measuring time of tank sounding by approximately 75% with Honesty. In addition, it prevents oil leakage accidents due to delays in measurement.
Our customers have chosen Honesty as crews are able to get accurate values with the innovative scale, and to prevent problems with the supplier regarding the amount of refuelling oil.
In accordance with IMO environmental regulations that came into effect on 1 January 2020, the number of cases where marine gas oil, which is a transparent fuel, is used is increasing. As it is difficult to measure with conventional tank sounding, the efficiency of Honesty has been gaining more and more attention.
In Japan, it has been adopted by shipowners, ship management companies, shipyards, and Japan Coast Guard. It has also been adopted by overseas shipowners and ship management companies in Singapore, Hong Kong, the Philippines and Europe.
We are happy to add that some of our customers say that Honesty helps improve their work environment.
