A leading supplier of products, solutions and services for industrial process measurement and automation, Endress+Hauser offers comprehensive process solutions for flow, level, pressure, analysis, temperature, recording and digital communications across a wide range of industries, optimising processes for economic efficiency, safety and environmental protection.
Endress+Hauser's Promass Coriolis mass flowmeters offer outstanding performance in the oil and gas industry for challenging applications such as inventory monitoring and custody transfer where high accuracy and reliability are essential. The company offers a range of sensors that are optimised for all of the oil and gas industry's requirements, including:
The Promass range is unaffected by the fluid's properties - such as density, viscosity, temperature, pressure and flow profile - meaning that measurement compensation or flow conditioning is no longer required.
In addition, with 0.05% accuracy, the flowmeters provide the best performance of custody transfer in oil and gas pipelines with up to 16in in diameter, ensuring the buyer and seller know exactly how much is transferred.
Accuracy is vital in custody-transfer applications, and the Promass flowmeters more than measure up. Not only do Promass flowmeters comply with custody-transfer regulations and accuracy requirements - they also often outperform them. This offers significant savings when dealing with valuable products such as oil and gas.
For example, consider a custody-transfer metering system for pipeline measurement delivering 80,000 BPD of oil priced at $100 a barrel equipped with a standard meter and accuracy of 0.1% with a total system accuracy of 0.3% (custody transfer norm).
Now imagine using a Promass flowmeter with an accuracy of 0.05%, where the total system accuracy will be lower than the requested 0.3% and up to the certified (from past executed projects) 0.15%. When you look at the figures, the Promass flowmeter offers significant cost savings.
Promass flowmeters provide direct fluid-density measurement, which offers additional quality information on the fluid measured, along with accurate conversion from mass to standard volume when required. Better still, the compact and lightweight design offers simple installation in horizontal and vertical configurations without the need for special supports, which means easy integration into customers' plants.
Endress+Hauser's dedicated oil and gas team will assist customers every step of the way, from instrumentation supply through to the complete design, construction, installation and commissioning of full custody-transfer flowmetering systems.
