VFF FilterPro – new product, to complement the VFF meters

Litre Meter has developed a flow assurance filter to the same high standards
as their successful VFF flow meter range. By using the same material,
inspection and standards requirements it is ready for your chemical injection
project. The filter has been designed to match and protect our flow meters in
their designed environment to achieve their optimum level of performance

Flowmeters for 20,000 psi

The VFF range has many uses in the oil and gas industry and meets
the high specifications required. Outside of oil and gas Litre meter
have manufactured these to 2,500bar.

The breakthrough in our design philosophy came when we
separated the measurement of the fluid from the pressure
containment. We designed a measurement chamber that
floats in the pressure vessel. This ensures accurate, pressure
independent flow metering from 10 psi to 20,000 psi.

 

PTH DIAPHRAGM SEAL – HIGH TEMP

PTH diaphragm seal

The 3051H high process temperature pressure transmitter has stopped being manufactured, therefore Badotherm developed a perfect new solution for this type of requirement. In short, the new solution makes it possible to continue proceeding high process temperature (capability up to 200°C) for measuring differential or gauge pressure with a direct mounted solution to fit to the manifold according the IEC 61518.

The PTH seal construction is designed to make the transmitter suitable for mounting to the process without capillary. The connection is according the International Standards of IEC 61518 to fit manifolds. The maximum process temperature is standard 200°C, however optionally this could be increased to higher temperatures, in combination with different fill fluids. Wetted part materials are standard AISI316(L),but can be varied depending on the process conditions.

 

NEW: BLS3000 – Electronic Dual Level Switch

BLS3000 – the Plus in level switches BLS3000

  • Resolution: 5 mm
  • Direct measurement
  • Capable of measuring media of density > 0.6g/cm³ that is compatible with float material e.g. hydraulic oils, water, coolants even with foaming
  • Total length (L0): 250 – 1000 mm

The Barksdale sensor family Generation 3000 is growing again: now the BLS3000 to monitor the level is available.

The electronic level switch BLS3000 offers a Plus in advantages in relation to traditional level switches. The integrated reed relays enable nearly continuous level measuring as well as free customized set point adjustment. Due to digital indication and analogue output the feedback of the application is given quickly and reliably. In addition with panel height of 110 mm and diameter of less than 41 mm the required space for a BLS3000 is very low. This means installation even small power packs is easily undertaken.

The lengths are available from 250 to 1000 mm. The resolution is at 5 mm. Beside the switch function (max. 2 setpoints) the sensor family can also be used as transmitter with analogue output in 4 … 20 mA or 0… 10 V format.

The wide range of process connections (G1/2“ M, G3/4“ M, G1“ M, ½“ NPT M, 3/4“ NPT M, 1“ NPT M, 11/4“ NPT M and M20 x 1,5 mm M) are offered  for various applications. The switch target applications are to monitor hydraulic oil or cooling water levels

Series BLS is cULus certified as well as the well known pressure switch BPS3000 and temperature switch BTS3000 and covers the protection classes IP65/IP67.

The big 4-digit 14-segment LED display is not only aesthetically pleasing but also a real functional highlight. It ensures a perfect readability independent of the positioning like inversion of the display due to software-features. Menu and electrical connection refer to VDMA standard 24574-1.

Due to rotatable 320° display and electrical connection, the mounting and installation is very easy.

Macro Sensors Subsea LVDT Linear Position Sensor Now Compliant With CiA 443 CANopen Profile for Use on Subsea Trees

Macro Sensors now offers its SSI Series of Subsea LVDT Linear Position Sensors with the CiA® 443 CANopen communication interface mandated for use on subsea trees (a.k.a. christmas trees) used in offshore oil drilling. The term “christmas tree” refers to the assembly of valves, sensors and controllers and other equipment placed over a wellhead, which, in formation, resembles a decorated tree. Its function is to prevent oil or gas release from an oil well, while controlling flow rates to maintain steady production levels.

Valves on the christmas tree are used to open and close oil pipes as they bring oil from the sea bed. The function of Macro Sensors Submersible LVDT is to provide feedback on valves in monitoring and controlling their status as part of a subsea control module. Failure to completely close a valve could result in an environmental disaster.

 

Located on the ocean floor in depths up to several hundred meters, the LVDT sensor and other prescribed “Level 2” components installed on the “christmas tree” are connected to offshore platforms by means of CAN networks. In the past, sensors and other equipment were connected by EIA 485 serial links that proved unreliable. To improve operability and standardize communications between devices among different manufacturers on subsea trees, the SIIS (Subsea Instrument Interface Standardization group) and CiA (CAN in Automation) Association jointly developed a new communication interface – CiA 443 CANopen profile. According to CiA , the CANopen network links SIIS level-2 devices to a subsea control system, which communicates via CiA® 443

 

In addition to complying with the new CiA 443 CANopen regulation, Macro Sensors encases its SSI Series of Subsea LVDTs in Inconel 625 to withstand deepsea enviroments with pressures up to 5000 psi. Due to a higher content of nickel, chromium and molybdenum, the Inconel offers excellent protection against corrosion and enhances the already high-reliability of the LVDT assembly, ensuring that it can meet service life requirements of at least 20 years, even if fully exposed to seawater. Reliability is critically important due to the cost of replacing subsea hardware.

New Hammer Union Pressure Transmitter

American Sensor Technologies releases its hammer union pressure transmitter for pressures up to 20,000 PSI.  Designed to operate in hazardous areas,  the AST4400 and AST4600 hammer unions are available for non-hazardous, intrinsically safe, and explosion proof areas as well as SIL2 designs.

The product was developed through the process of listening to customers and applying the latest sensor technology and material to the applications.  These intense applications cause sensors to drift and eventually fail in the field.  The sensor is hammered during install and hammered with pressure transient.  With this in mind, the AST hammer union pressure transmitter employs a thick Inconel™ 718 diaphragm and silicon strain gages to increase survivability and long term performance.  The transmitter is lab tested for high shock and vibration resistance, with testing up to 1000G. Further, AST field tested it onshore and offshore in the most extreme ambient conditions.

The modular design allows for simpler, faster, and lower cost replacement of the transmitter if a failure were to occur.  The cage around the pressure transmitter is designed to protect the sensor and mating connector, allows for proper drainage in flooding situations, and optional handle mounting (although the cage itself is easy to hold with a gloved hand).

Short term, you have a transmitter that will last longer with less drift.  Long term, you have a more cost-effective solution because you’ll repair less and pay less when you repair.
