SMART ELBOW, which is one of the recent patented innovative solutions of the company under its MEPSENSE brand was the most interesting technological solutions of the event. It is an innovative product to eliminate basically the cross-fillings between gasoline and diesel into the storage tanks at the refueling stations. Different from the other solutions provided in the market, SMART ELBOW totally fulfills the expectations and promise more in terms of flexible usage thanks to its stationary and portable options which is not available in any other solution in the market, complete security by its multiple-authorisation scenerio management, comprehensive monitoring of fuels quality and filling operations by mobile apps, full efficiency by its complete prevention system against the mix of gasoline and diesel in the tank and capability of a wide range of customisation options according to the different field requirements.

Because the solution itself creates data from the filling operations, this data will be able to be integrated into such systems for cross-checks of some inputs such as time, date, fuel quality, temprature and many others. This one, the visitors experienced in UNITI 2018, was the first generation that is promising all above. However, the next generation is on the way with volume measurement and fully integrated with STAWIZ ATG System of MEPSAN" Mr. Ozparlak concludes.
