This wafer piece of pipeline is engineered to insert between two flanges for precise fit. It allows scale detection often the result of hardened mineral deposits that can reduce fluids flow through a pipeline. It serves oil and gas or other industries where production rates can be adversely affected by the hardening of iron, salts, or other minerals in pipes and valves.
This device uses Electrical Capacitance Tomography technology. It allows operators to see inside piping systems - without stopping a process or opening a line. It also enables 3D-imaging plus measurement of nonconductive media inside process pipelines and tanks.
Flowrox Scaling Watch utilizes a patented algorithm to create 3D image of process fluid in piping. It generates trend data as well as shows free volume inside pipe and scale growth rate over time. The new system also shows scale thickness, scale profile, and composition - all of which allow engineers to understand areas where pipes are prone to scaling. This new predictive device helps operators address scale issues before they reach critical levels which can cause downtime or costly damage. It comes in carbon steel, 316/316L stainless steel or titanium.
