Guided wave radar for inventory tank gauging

The existing FF segments in the refinery tank farm have been verified and ap feasible to accommodate the new GWR instruments in this project.

Float and tape gauge This solution uses a float attached to a spring via a perforated tape. Project scope revision The successful results of piloting GWR for the inventory tank gauging application revealed a new and suitable solution for Saudi Aramco’s Riyadh Refinery project.

The project’s final scope of work was revised as follows:. The vendors provided certificates for traceability to German accreditation body DAkkS. One recent tank gauging project at Saudi Aramco Company was scoped to install radar tank gauging with multiple points of temperature measurement on 42 tanks for crude and refined products.


Browse the products and services designed to meet the needs of these 33.1 industry roles: GWR can have an intrinsic lab accuracy between 2 mm and 3 mm, and a 25 mm installed accuracy depending on the vendor and measuring distance.

Hcapter used to be the Saudi Aramco standard tank gauging solution for inventory tanks.

These devices can meet the inventory and custody accuracy requirements. Hydrostatic tank gauges A hydrostatic tank gauge HTG system has up to three pressure transmitters and one temperature transmitter. ISA to provide end-user perspective in new international smart cyapter collaboration. A third transmitter measures the vapor pressure at the top of the tank to increase the accuracy.

ISA has the resources and expert networks that you need — no matter what position you hold in our industries. A GWR instrument can provide both total hydrocarbon level and water interface level. The project’s final scope of work was revised as follows: GWR is insensitive to dielectric changes and works for fluid with a low dielectric constant.

Float and tape gauge Figure 3. The perforated tape is connected to a mechanical counter assembly.

Each RTG required excavation for running new and long cables for the signals and for the external power supply, in the large tank farm area.

Radar tank gauging RTG is the most common solution for tank gauging. This step has eliminated proprietary hardware and software for the tank inventory calculations. A small displacer weight on a measuring wire from a drum is accurately positioned and balanced in the liquid medium using a servomotor.

The pay raise engineers have been waiting for. New cabinets, hardware, and software installations in the process interface buildings were required, which could mean expansion of existing buildings or construction of new ones.


A pressure transmitter shall cgapter installed at the bottom of each tank to assist in mass calculations.

GWR advantages GWR technology has many advantages, which make it an attractive option for inventory tank gauging: Fast Forward There are different level measurement options for inventory tank gauging.

The existing asset management platform in the RR tank farm i. Guided wave radar for inventory tank gauging. ISA awarded me a scholarship to help fund my education. GWR has different and open communication protocols, such as analog mA, Foundation fieldbus, and wireless. Manual gauging This solution is the reference for all other solutions, and it utilizes a dip tape. Economical solution The journey of the Saudi Aramco tank gauging project has resulted in a simple, reliable, and highly economical system for inventory tank gauging.

Also, every vendor had to provide five-point calibration of each GWR to confirm the said accuracy. Browse the products and services designed to meet the needs of these common industry roles:. GWR is available with different process connection types and sizes. Over one year, the refinery operation team conducted manual dipping to check the reading accuracy of the installed GWR instruments.
