Major Rix order for Alpeco’s new register system

One of the 17 new trucks operated by Rix Petroleum, featuring the new TE550 Truck 111 system from Alpeco
Alpeco Limited, a company within the Flomax Group, has won its largest order to date for their new TE550 Truck III electronic register system from Hull-based Rix Petroleum.
Rix Petroleum appointed Alpeco as the preferred equipment supplier for 17 new trucks ordered in June 2013 from Tasca Tankers. 90% of the Rix Petroleum fleet are already fitted with Alpeco products and Alpeco and Liquid Controls tailored the development of the new TE550 Truck III to provide Rix with a bespoke electronic register system.
All 17 tankers are now in service and two of them have operated the TE550 Truck III electronic register successfully since their introduction. The remaining 15 trucks will now be upgraded with the new system which has been designed specifically to address the growing need for operators to monitor the volumes of fuel loaded, delivered and left on board the tanker at any given time.
The system’s inventory software allows the operator to input the volumes and grades of product loaded into each vehicle compartment. Once this information has been entered and saved, an in-cab printer produces a bill of laden confirming the time, date and the load details. As the tanker completes each delivery the volume discharged is then automatically deducted from the respective inventory and the volume left on board is shown on the meter display.
