The compact QCT Series has no moving parts and there is nothing in the flow stream that will cause an increase in pressure drop; this results in a very rugged, reliable and accurate flow meter. High accuracy & repeatability is achieved through the unique measurement section within the flow meter where the flow is conditioned and delta T is measured along the axis of the flow meter. The small footprint, lightweight device is ideal for low viscosity liquid applications including water, water-based products, oils, and its all plastic construction makes it the meter of choice for many corrosive fluids.
The QLF Series in line ultrasonic flow meter has been specifically designed for low flow rate applications that require excellent accuracy & reliability. The compact QLF Series has no moving parts, non-wetted sensors and no obstructions in the flow stream to cause an increase in pressure drop; this results in a very rugged, reliable and accurate flow meter. High accuracy & repeatability is achieved through the unique measurement section within the flow meter where the flow is conditioned and delta T is measured along the axis of the flow meter. The small footprint, lightweight device is ideal for low viscosity liquid applications including water, water-based products, oils, and its all plastic construction makes it the meter of choice for many corrosive fluids.
The QEM Series in-line ultrasonic flow meter has been specifically designed for applications that require excellent accuracy & reliability at an OEM price point. The compact QEM Series has no moving parts; this results in a very rugged, reliable and accurate flow meter. The small footprint, lightweight device is ideal for low viscosity liquid applications including water, water-based products, oils, and its plastic and stainless steel construction makes it the meter of choice for many corrosive fluids.
The EL2200 series of electromagnetic flowmeters represent the state of the art for the accurate measurement for water cycle and process applications. This new generation flowmeter utilizes an innovative structure to route the electromagnetic signal generated by the electrodes, providing a flowmeter with an extremely wide measurement range. The new EL Series meters are capable of a measurement range up to 1000:1.
The non-intrusive element of the EL System allows product to flow through the meter without concern of clogging. This rugged electromagnetic flowmeter is designed specifically for conductive fluids, including slurries. This system combines the MC608 transmitter with Flow Technology’s EL Series of electromagnetic flowmeters that represent the state-of-the-art for accurate measurement in water cycle and process applications.
Thermal dispersion switches use similar principles as thermal mass flow meters. Fluid carries heat away from the probe tip reducing the temperature difference between a heated resistance temperature detector (RTD) and a reference RTD.
A customer replaced 6 ESPs (Electric Submersible Pump) within a 4-year period. Seven months after installing a JJ Tech Jet Pump, no workover rig has been needed and the well remains as productive as it was on ESP.
AccessESP, a leading provider of rigless electric submersible pump (ESP) conveyance solutions for the worldwide oil industry, has showcased its rigless ESP conveyance system in the industry’s first pump swap for an operator on the North Slope of Alaska.
The market for industrial pumps in the U.S. is likely to be greater over the next few years with Trump as president than it would have been had Clinton been elected.
Houston, Texas will again host this year’s Turbomachinery and Pump Symposia (TPS), where Sulzer will be on hand to demonstrate how improved performance and reliability can be delivered for rotating equipment.
This year’s Turbomachinery and Pump Symposia, held in Houston, Texas, will see Sulzer showing the benefits of investing in the latest technology to deliver long term performance and reliability. By Jennifer Cardillo, Marketing and Communications Manager, Americas, Rotating Equipment Services
Flowrox, a global leader in heavy-duty industrial valve manufacturing and services, is announcing the launch of the Flowrox Expulse™ product, designed to assist during pump and dampener maintenance by reducing noise and vibration associated with traditional methods—which can lead to pipe damage that can cause breakage and a loss of revenue.
Pumps & controls
Upstream and downstream segments of the oil and gas industry use pumps and control systems for production. Pumping facilities are usually needed in the oil and gas industry for pumping crude oil, refinery waste waters, drilling mud, catalyst slurries, and corrosion inhibitor among others. Control instruments such as control valves are also important in checking fluid flow. The array of application of these pumps and controls stresses the difference they make in the oil and gas industry.
Pump manufacturers have made some forward advancement both in the type of pumps they make and their presentation. For instance, there has been a growing trend of manufacturers sending a group of experts who will help with designing of a tailor made pump. This ensures that each application has a pump that suits its functions and complexities. The overall outcome of such improvements in the industry includes improvement in energy consumption levels, safety and maintenance costs. The other advantages of this new tendency are higher profits and production.
Other than the obvious qualities, there are certain attributes that one should look out for in a pump. Erosion tolerance is an important aspect that needs to be considered particularly in pumps that carry solids such as sand. The pumps should also be able to deliver stable fluid flow. This stability should always be there across wide pressure intervals. Pumps intended for oil and water mixture should be able to safely transport products with low shear. This helps in avoiding emulsification.
Control technologies have been advanced to ensure that monitoring can be done remotely to avoid certain obvious exposure hazards. There are control instruments available for downstream, upstream and midstream markets. One needs to ensure that the manufacturer who provides their pump and control facilities will be able to check equipment issues and monitor the equipment.
