Sentinel meters offer peace of mind to pipeline operators
Custody transfer flow measurement
The ownership transactions of high-value raw and refined assets, such as petroleum and crude oil, demand accurate and custody transfer-level flow measurement to meet the strict requirements of regional authorities. Pipeline leaks are one risk factor that must be monitored to avoid harming people and the environment. Additionally, leaks can engender significant costs to your company in product and downtime for repairs, cleanup and damage to your corporate reputation, resulting in the loss of your license to operate.
Panametrics, a Baker Hughes business, provides custody transfer leak detection using a multipath inline flow meter. This multipath method permits a wide range of measurement for liquid hydrocarbons. As well, our Sentinel product line is certified OIML R117 for legal meteorology.
The Sentinel custody transfer ultrasonic flow meter provides peace of mind to pipeline owners by reducing the risk of leaks and pipeline shutdown while protecting your product’s integrity and boosting your company’s credibility. Operators that choose Sentinel with custody transfer performance achieve accurate and repeatable flow measurements in critical environments that are sensitive to leaks.
The Sentinel LNG ultrasonic custody transfer liquid flow meter extends cryogenic applications to -200 C. Like other Sentinel meters it is reliable, robust and cost effective. With no moving parts, a robust path configuration and bundled waveguide technology, the signals can enter the process while protecting the transducers from cryogenic temperatures.
The Sentinel LCT is uniquely designed to meet the strict requirements for custody transfer of hydrocarbons. Its robust path configuration provides trouble-free operation that will not drift, even when the liquid product changes in the line.
The Panametrics LCT8 is the latest addition to the high-accuracy product line of ultrasonic flow meters. It delivers custody transfer-level measurement, even in the unstable conditions typical of pipelines. Its 8 measurement paths give operators enhanced visibility into their pipelines to support informed decisions and minimize risk.
