Sentinel meters provide peace of mind for pipeline operators
Custody transfer flow measurement
The ownership transactions of high-value raw and refined assets such as petroleum and crude demands accurate and custody transfer-level flow measurement to meet the strict requirements of regional authorities. Pipeline leaks are one risk factor that needs to be monitored to avoid harm to people and the environment. Additionally leaks that occur can cost your company money in product and throughput loss in downtime for repairs, cleanup, and damage company reputation resulting in loss of licenses to operate.
Panametrics provides custody transfer leak detection using a multipath inline flow meter. This multipath method allows for a wide range of measurement for liquid hydrocarbons. Additionally our Sentinel product line is certified OIML R117 for legal meteorology.
The Sentinel custody transfer ultrasonic flow meter is able to provide peace of mind to pipeline owners by reducing pipeline shutdown and risk of leaks occurring, increase product protection, and increases the company credibility. Operators that choose Sentinel with custody transfer performance find accurate and repeatable flow measurements in critical environments that are sensitive to leaks.
The Sentinel LNG ultrasonic custody transfer liquid flow meter extends technology into cryogenic applications down to-200 C. Like other Sentinel meters it is reliable, robust and cost effective. With has no moving parts, a robust path configuration and bundled waveguide technology the signals are able to enter the process while protecting the transducers from cryogenic temperatures.
The Sentinel LCT is uniquely designed to meet the strict requirements for custody transfer of hydrocarbons. Its robust path configuration provides trouble-free operation that will not drift, even when the liquid product changes in the line.
The Panametrics LCT8 is the latest addition to the high-accuracy line of utlrasonic flow meters. It delivers custody transfer-level measurement, even in the unstable conditions typical of pipelines. with eight measurement paths, it gives operators better visibility into what's happening in their pipelines to help them make an informed decision and minimize risk.
