GWR installation options on different types of tanks.
One recent tank gauging project at Saudi Aramco Company was scoped to install radar tank gauging with multiple points of temperature measurement on 42 tanks chaptee crude and refined products. Economical solution The journey of the Saudi Aramco tank gauging project has resulted in a simple, reliable, and highly economical system for inventory tank gauging.
The project scope was revised to mandate GWR for the project and eliminate all the complexity and constructability challenges. Browse the products and services designed to meet the needs of these common industry roles:.
GWR piloting and test results A plan was set to apl four GWR level instruments from two different manufacturers on different types of tanks with different refinery products, and to monitor the performance over one year. GWR shall be used for inventory tank gauging for the Riyadh Refinery project. Guided wave radar for inventory tank gauging Cut the cost, simplify the project, and expedite implementation By Chaptrr AlSahan, CAP There are two internationally recognized standards covering tank gauging in atmospheric tanks.
GWR technology has many advantages, which make it an attractive option for inventory tank gauging:. The author would like to acknowledge the support of the Saudi Aramco Riyadh Refinery management, and to acknowledge Riyadh Chapteer automation engineers Fawaz AlHadlaq and Khalid Batoq for their assistance in preparing this article and their commitment to conducting the pilot testing and building a new milestone.
Measurement technology and setup: Manual gauging compared to GWR reading. Addressing the Workforce Cgapter of Modern Industry. A pressure transmitter shall be installed at the bottom of each tank to assist in mass calculations. Servo gauge Figure 4.
A GWR instrument can provide both total hydrocarbon level and water interface level. Over this period, the operation team conducted frequent hcapter gauging three times per test to check the installed accuracy of bb GWR.
We want to hear from you! It used to be the Saudi Aramco standard tank gauging solution for inventory tanks. A plan was set to pilot four GWR level instruments from two different manufacturers on different types of tanks with different refinery products, and to monitor the performance over one year. Before proceeding with the field test, the selected vendors were asked: Update your member profile, set your communications preferences, find products and services that are right for you, and more — all from the chwpter of your ISA website.
A sample of the data collected is in figure Fawaz is a certified engineering consultant SCE with 20 years of experience in instrumentation and automation. The project execution would take years, including its high cost. A hydrostatic tank gauge HTG system has up to three pressure transmitters and one temperature transmitter. These devices can meet the inventory and custody accuracy requirements. For tanks with no stilling piping e.
The existing asset management platform in the RR tank farm i. Hydrostatic tank gauges A hydrostatic tank gauge HTG system has up to three pressure transmitters and one temperature transmitter. ISA awarded me a scholarship to help fund my education. ISA members have access to dozens of unique benefits.
It is important to highlight that GWR has fundamental rules set by the manufacturers for selection, installation, and commissioning. The servo gauge uses the displacement measurement principle. GWR can be installed with or without stilling piping.
The spring provides constant tension, which balances the float on the liquid level. The GWR cable version can be extended up to 75 meters high.
GWR advantages GWR technology has many advantages, which make it an attractive option for inventory tank gauging: After commissioning, the echo curve was collected for each transmitter to confirm a strong echo for each GWR, with no loss of signal and no interference figures 10 and The project’s final scope of work was revised as follows:.
Guided wave radar for inventory tank gauging
This solution is the reference for all other solutions, and it utilizes a dip tape. Due to its simplicity, a FAT is not necessary. They can be very useful in applications like molten sulfur and asphalt.
The vendors provided certificates for traceability to German accreditation body DAkkS.
