Solutions for Refineries

Flare Management and Measurement

Flare Management and Measurement

Determining and maintaining combustion efficiency for flare stacks shouldn’t be a guessing game. Our state-of-the-art flare measurement and management systems help you stay in control of flare systems in real time, for the safety of your operators and our planet. Optimize flare system performance to meet regulatory requirements, reduce methane emissions, and drive down operational costs. 

Ultrasonic Flow Measurement

Ultrasonic Flow Measurement

Our rugged ultrasonic flow measurement solutions ensure the highest standard of visibility and measurement accuracy, even in transient, viscous conditions. Easy-to-operate technology helps streamline and accelerate your processes while reducing risk. The support, advice and training our experts can provide throughout your upgrade process is just as reliable as our products. 

Moisture Measurement

Moisture Measurement

Moisture measurement and control is critical for many refinery process units, such as Catalytic Reforming, Isomerization and Alkylation. Our range of moisture measurement technologies and solutions allow for measurements in hydrocarbon liquids and gases, ensuring product quality, efficient dryer operation and catalyst and metal infrastructure protection.

Hydrogen and Oxygen Measurement

Hydrogen and Oxygen Measurement

Hydrogen is a key component in many refinery processes, such as catalytic reforming and isomerization. It is critical that hydrogen is continually monitored and controlled to ensure the optimal amount is present in recycle gas or feed gases to processes units. Oxygen is monitored during catalyst regeneration to ensure optimal regeneration and reduce operating costs. Measuring oxygen content is also vital for ensuring the safety of the plant by preventing explosions in reactors and vessels.

Ultrasonic Measurement: Frequently Asked Questions

Moisture and Gas Measurement: Frequently Asked Questions

Topic Spotlight: Why Moisture and Hydrogen measurement?
Process Protection
Protect expensive reactor catalysts from excess moisture in the process feedstock, which can drastically reduce catalyst life, thereby increasing catalyst replacement costs.
Increased efficiency
Ensure process dryers are running efficiently and switching towers only when required, to extend dryer bed life, while remaining within process specification.
Tighter Process Control
Ensure the process is running to licensor specifications with 24/7 reliable measurements of key parameters like Hydrogen and moisture content.
