This industry provides one of the most diverse and challenging environments for instrumentation to operate in. There are constantly changing demands and the need is to provide solutions that will not only return faultless reliability in the harshest operating conditions, but also deliver the high accuracy and performance expected when measuring valuable commodities.
Contrec has been taking care of oil and gas applications for over 30 years and was one of the first electronic preset controller manufacturers to gain custody transfer approvals for the loading of oil products onto road tankers, rail and barge applications.
The 515 Series is based on an advanced, flexible and reliable hardware platform, while the functionality is determined by software that is specifically tailored to individual applications. With over 50 applications already created and a wealth of available input types, our specialised features such as the ability to linearise the flowmeter in inputs, ensures Contrec continues to help make good flowmeters even better.
The Contrec DataMod Tool allows engineers and managers to quickly and easily keep up-to-date with what’s happening in their plant. No need for expensive, customised SCADA packages. DataMod is a one-size-fits-all solution which allows you to extract critical live or logged operating data from your Contrec 515 instruments installed in the field and to generate reports and spreadsheets quickly and easily.
In Batch or Load applications, DataMod can continually monitor the 515 controller and allow managers of single standalone systems to automatically generate and print a default or customised report (Delivery Docket) at the end of a delivery. This becomes a highly economical and efficient way to generate accurate and professional reports on the computer’s existing office printer. For Load applications, Bill of Lading style report templates are provided as part of the standard DataMod install.
In Process Control or Flow Measurement applications, engineers can monitor the flows of liquids, whether it’s steam and gas in the boiler house, fuel loading into tankers or effluent discharge from factories. Key information such as volume, mass, temperature, pressure, density, energy, power can all be accessed and scrutinised to ensure the production process is operating at optimum levels. The data can additionally be used to highlight potential problems on site. For example, where reduction in flow rates could be the result of a failing pump or sticking valve. This information can help save considerable costs in preventing serious equipment failure and lost production.
Managers are often required to produce regular reports on the performance of production facilities. These reports are vital for businesses to help control costs, plan effective production strategy and highlight potential problems. One example might be a steam boiler, installed several years earlier to handle the demand at that time. Over the years, production levels may have increased to such a degree that the boiler is now having to operate beyond its normal capability in order to keep up with demand. This increases the wear and reduces reliability of the boiler and also disproportionally increases the cost of gas supply needed to feed the boiler. Being able to track the steam usage in the plant, and pinpoint peaks and troughs, will allow managers to view the boiler’s performance and make accurate, informed decisions on their capital expenditure.
