Overview

The determination of the position of a batched product and identifying the mixing zone, enables accurate predictions for arrival times and amounts of pure product available. In addition, separation of the interface from the actual product is easier, enabling planning for the most efficient yields.

This PipePatrol module tracks every batch and interface in multi-product pipelines, where several products such as gasoline, diesel and jet fuel are transported in sequence. It ensures safe operation as well as optimum capacity use of the pipeline. This enables the operator to minimise slop volume and increase the overall yields. For even better results PipePatrol Batch Tracking accepts input data from instruments along the pipeline, such as density meters or ultrasonic flowmeters, e.g. the KROHNE OPTISONIC 6300 clamp-on flowmeter.

  • Batch and interface tracking
  • Estimated time of arrival calculation
  • Interface calculation
  • Slops/pure volume calculation
  • Interface synchronization with other pipeline sensors enables improved predictions
