Overpressure protection for LNG plants

November 21, 2019

The production of spring-loaded and pilot-operated safety valves for the LNG market takes experience and know-how. This article describes how one manufacturer has developed its own comprehensive test scenarios and also produced sealing surfaces that far exceed the tightness limits required by a leading standard. At the time of writing, there is as yet no international standard for the cryogenic production testing for pilot-operated safety salves (POSVs). This is why LESER uses DIN EN 13648-1 as a basis and focuses the tests on the requirements of the market for cryogenic tests in production. Furthermore, following a detailed analysis of the application several test scenarios were developed which…

MEASURING THE VISCOSITY DURING CHEMICAL ENHANCED OIL RECOVERY

November 21, 2019

L-Vis 510: Polymer Flooding Inline Polymer Flooding Liquid Viscosity Robust and accurate viscosity measurement under harsh process conditions is a challenging task made easy by Anton Paar’s unique,  fluid dynamic inline viscometer, L-Vis 510. L-Vis 510 has a nanometer-resolution inductive displacement sensor which measures the deflection of a flexible cuff subjected to shear in a tapered gap. The wide gap tolerates particle sizes up to a few hundred micrometers and allows a thorough sample exchange. These features, along with excellent repeatability under sufficiently stable process conditions, open new opportunities for automatic viscosity based process and quality control in demanding industrial processes. Polymer Flooding…

A complete pipeline monitoring system

June 21, 2019

ANY PIPE, ANYWHERE DISTANCE UP TO 25 MILES (40KM) PRAETORIAN FIBER OPTIC SENSING PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION The Praetorian emits a laser pulse down a fiber optic cable to measure vibration and temperature. It will also locate the position of the vibration and temperature being measured. Using a combination of Rayleigh backscatter, Brillouin Backscatter* and time of flight the Praetorian will determine physical disturbances to the fiber. It will identify the location, intensity and frequency of the disturbances (vibrations/temperature) along the optical fiber in real-time. Rayleigh Backscatter responds to vibrations applied to the fiber. HAWK’s signal analysis software allows the Praetorian to quickly…

TRACE MOISTURE SYSTEM INTRODUCTION

May 21, 2019

As technology evolves to produce smaller, more capable and cost-effective analyzers, it gives industry the ability to measure trace components at extremely low levels. Reducing the trace levels of moisture, oxygen, or contaminants can improve device quality and yields. Moisture content can have disastrous effects, even in the single-digit ppm range of moisture concentration. When liquid hydrocarbons and excess water vapour combine to form a hydrate and are present in the sample stream; they can reduce flow, damage equipment such as valves and compressors and obstruct areas of the piping. The lifespan of process piping is determined by the effects…
