With SIMATIC PDM Maintenance Station V3.0, Siemens offers an optimal tool for efficiently monitoring the condition of smart field devices, irrespective of the automation or control systems used. SIMATIC PDM is a universal, non‐proprietary tool for the configuration, parameterization, commissioning and monitoring of smart field devices. The maintenance station is based on the SIMATIC DCS PCS 7 maintenance system but is now available as a standalone system. MS can run independently of the both the customers’ automation control projects as well as with complete autonomy from the PLC/DCS process control systems being used.
After addressing the business, financial, and operating benefits of segregated ethylene spent caustic treatment in Water Recycling Efficiency In Ethylene Facilities Producing Spent Caustic, Part I: Cost, this conclusion to the story delves deeper into the process involved.
Jiujiang, a city of 5 million people, borders the edge of the Yangtze River as well as Poyang Lake, each China’s largest. To the east of the city’s residential districts, midway on a peninsula separating the two bodies of water, sits the giant petrochemical complex of the Sinopec Jiujiang Company, a subsidiary of the Sinopec Corporation, the nation’s largest refiner. Nearly 3,000 people work there.
Fracturing sand (i.e., frac sand or proppant) is a key component used in hydraulic fracturing operations that facilitates production by keeping fractures open so that oil and/or natural gas can flow freely from the formation into the casing and up to the surface. Read more to learn about automation solutions that optimize the efficiency of utilizing native Texas sand for fraccing.
Ever since Coriolis flow measurement technology achieved mainstream appeal, industry has been fervently striving to take advantage of its benefits. And while Coriolis is clearly a highly advantageous solution for many crucial flow measurement applications, it is not without flaw.
Since the first Coriolis flow sensors were introduced to the marketplace in the 1970s, the technology has evolved considerably. As the installed base for Coriolis grew, the sensors were being called upon to deliver data in environments with increasing levels of complexity. This meant that Coriolis sensors had to adapt and conform to a dizzying array of ever-changing installation requirements, process conditions, communication formats, and configuration parameters. The following article highlights four key advances in Coriolis flow measurement’s journey from the 1970s to today.
Coriolis measurement has been adopted as a default technology in many application scenarios due to its high accuracy and immunity to process variables (temperature, pressure and flow profile). However, Coriolis wasn't always widely accepted. Two applications, in particular, helped what was once a nascent flow measurement technology gain a foothold in the marketplace.
There is no doubt that the practice of hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, has completely changed the oil and gas landscape in recent history. There is also no doubt that this is a highly technical process.
It may not be immediately apparent just how crucial bubbles are to oil and gas operations. They play a critical role in a process known as dissolved gas flotation (DGF), which is imperative for removing contaminants. And not all bubbles are created the same.
Horizontal drilling started back in 1929 and hydraulic fracking began in 1949. However, it was not until 2003 that the horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracking processes were combined to extract gas from the Barnett Shale in north Texas. Since then, gas drilling has increased by 14 times in the United States. Given the vast shale formations throughout the United States, drilling will continue to increase for several more years.
Jack Roushey, Product Manager for Siemens electromagnetic flowmeters, presents on how to use magmeters in zero upstream and zero downstream applications. Based on their demonstrated ability to perform in non-ideal conditions, the SITRANS F M MAG 5100W and MAG 8000 electromagnetic sensors from Siemens have received approval for 2% accuracy custody transfer (MI-001) and non-custody transfer applications for installation with zero diameter upstream pipe and zero diameter downstream straight run pipe from the sensor.
Braskem Idesa is a 75-25 joint venture between Brazil’s Braskem, the largest producer of thermoplastic resins in the Americas, and Grupo Idesa, a traditional petrochemical company in Mexico. As one of the project’s top suppliers of skills, technology and equipment, Siemens itself marshaled resources and employees from 11 different countries to collaborate on a truly multinational and multicultural level with Braskem Idesa and its global partners.
Manual tank gauging is a common oilfield activity that’s resulted in multiple worker deaths in recent years. By using work practice control, operators can reduce the risks it poses significantly.
PerforMedia™ oil removal media replaces walnut shells in media filtration systems. Manufactured from materials not subject to agricultural limitations, the media is able to handle five times the amount of oil before requiring backwash; is able to maintain feed concentrations of greater than 500 mg/L while producing effluent well under 10 ppm; and can be used on a wide range of oil API and elevated temperatures.
