SSTB 2012: Solartron introduces wet gas flow meters

Offshore staff

GALVESTON, Texas – Subsea Tieback exhibitor Solartron ISA says it has introduced the Dualstream Elite family of wet gas flow meters that provide gas, water and condensate flow measurement without the use of radiation emitting sources. 

The environmentally friendly Dualstream Elite utilizes a unique approach for water fraction measurement developed especially for real-time measurement of phase fractions in wet gas applications. The flow meters incorporate multipath non-intrusive sensors and demonstrate excellent performance in oil and water continuous flow. The flow meters have accuracies of +/-2% relative (typical) for gas mass flow rates and +/-0.1% abs for water volume fraction.

Solartron says its Dualstream meters are designed for direct installation at a wellhead or subsea gathering line. Stable and reliable with a typical lifespan greater than 20 years, Dualstream meters are ideal for unmanned platforms and marginal field development and suitable for ultra-deepwater installation. The company customizes each of its subsea meters to ensure compatibility with other project equipment such as remotely operated vehicles, subsea trees, gathering lines, available power and communication protocols.
