  1. Performing A Storage Tank Risk Assessment

    Are your petroleum storage tanks ready for updates to API 2350? Here’s how to find out and address any issues.

  2. Advanced Tools Simplify Instrument Maintenance

    Hardware and software developments make preventive maintenance easier, lower costs, reduce parts inventories, and prevent unexpected equipment failures.

  3. Advances In Flowmeter Technology

    Two trends are turning the flowmeter industry on its ear: advances in flowmeter diagnostics and the adoption of smartphone-like technology to improve access, communications and in the not-too-distant future the displays attached to flowmeters. This article looks at trends involving tiny flowmeters, specialty flowmeters, advanced diagnostics, improved communications between flowmeters and the enterprise, and the looming trend toward embodying smartphone technology into flowmeters.

  4. Solving Difficult Level And Flow Measurement Problems In Crude Oil Production Processes

    Oil producers often deal with troublesome applications including water carry over into the oil leg of separators, entrained gas in oil and water legs, emulsion layers inside the separator, varying densities and remote areas. These concerns can be difficult for traditional instrumentation to measure, but modern level and flow instruments have been developed to successfully address these issues.

  5. Accounting For The Unaccounted

    In modern tank and terminal facilities, material transfer operations include a mix of legacy processing systems still in use, new technologies installed to improve operations, and tank monitoring software. But some older facilities have not modernized their operations, and can be losing millions of dollars in unaccounted losses, especially if they are dispensing more materials to customers than they are getting paid for. Conversely, errors can be made in the other direction, shortchanging and overcharging customers, leading to loss of business and other issues.
