Pathfindr provides a non-intrusive, zero-maintenance IBC monitoring and tracking solution for the petro-chemical industry.

Smart IBC tracking and monitoring solution

Pathfindr’s non-intrusive rigid intermediate bulk container (IBC) tracking and monitoring solution allows customers to not only understand where their rigid IBCs are, the temperature that they’re experiencing, but also the level of the fluid that the IBC contains.

The location, movement, temperature and fluid level are uploaded near real-time for access via the Pathfindr Cloud Platform.

How does the Smart IBC tracking solution work?

Our radar device is attached to the exterior top surface of the IBC. The radar sensor measures the volume of material in the IBC.

The Smart IBC provides GPS location, temperature and micro movement and uploads the data to the Pathfindr Real-time Asset Intelligence Platform.

Pathfindr's Smart IBC tracking solution

Most IBC’s provide volume marks to gauge IBC fill level. These are often hard to read and rely on guesswork. They are also reliant on warehouse staff locating IBC’s, removing from racking, and taking readings – stocktakes can be time consuming activities.

With Pathfindr’s IBC monitoring solution, the location, movement, temperature and fluid-level are access and displayed on the platform. The data can also be exported to another system using our Restful API.
