Part VI: Still Searching for a Solution

Using a section of jacketed pipe to cool the liquid ammonia was a pragmatic solution that greatly improved the operation, but did not really solve the problem.

Allocation Measurement Systems

Without the ability to properly measure the amount of oil, water and gas being extracted from a well, operations and reservoir engineers are significantly inhibited from being able to achieve the well knowledge needed. While the primary motivation for increased measurement accuracy is financial, there are several added benefits to the day-to-day operations of the field processing site as well.

Flowmeter Repeatability & Reproducibility
A popular measurement of the quality of a flowmetering system is the ability to repeat the same flow indication at unchanging process conditions. But the reproducibility of the measurement is equally important.
Pressure Transmitter Perspectives

With improved economic conditions worldwide, and many delayed projects coming back online, growth and innovation in the pressure transmitter market can be expected to continue.

RTDs vs. Thermocouples

Temperature is the most measured parameter across many industries. RTDs and thermocouples are the most common sensor types used in industrial processes. But which is the best choice for your process?

Multipoint Thermal vs. DP Flowmeters for Combustion Air Flow Applications

Multipoint thermal mass flowmeters are a low-cost, low-maintenance, and highly accurate alternative to DP devices and flow restrictors.

PUMP GUY: Rocket Science
The instrumentation technician is a better friend to the pump reliability engineer than the vibration analyzer or the CMMS program. I’ve written these words before in more than one “Pump Guy” article, but rarely does the instrumentation tech know the influence he exercises.
3 Factors That Kill Sensor Accuracy & When You Need To Calibrate
We get asked all the time, “How often should I calibrate my level/pressure sensor?” When it comes to sensors, there is the simple answer, and the long answer that explains the nuts, bolts, washers, and threads of calibration.
