Endress+Hauser: increase safety, reliability, and reduce maintenance costs in the oil and gas industry

Feb 20 2019 Read 883 Times

Do you find yourself questioning whether your oil & gas measurement instrumentation continues to meet needed standards? Are surveillance and maintenance efforts taking more of your time than ever? Are your processes running as smoothly as they should?

Perhaps it might be time to replace your instruments with modern technologies.

Where a process plant has a large installed base of older mechanical technologies, the decision to embark upon a program of replacement and plant modernisation cannot be taken easily. There is a lot to consider.

But with aging assets and technology that has reached its limits, maintenance costs rise, and more of your precious time is spent on maintaining installed instruments. A process plant which retains older technology may find it increasingly difficult or impossible to maintain a cost position that competes effectively in the global market. A break could lead to a complete production shutdown resulting in money lost and risks to people and the environment.

Replacing your aging technology is key to avoid such scenarios.

As maintenance specialists for the oil and gas industry, Endress+Hauser can help you to decide what, when, and how.

Read about how to improve maintenance repair and operations in your plant and watch our video on MRO.

Application example

Distillation column

Major processes in a refinery are based on the heating and partial evaporation of hydrocarbons. Maximising the feed rate of the crude distillation column while ensuring the mixture of crude types meets environmental specifications is a must. Modernising level measurement technologies can avoid costly shut downs. Guided wave radar (Levelflex) is your reliable alternative to displacers, in compliance with API2350 – functional safety, as it is not affected by density and temperature changes.

  • Vacuum distillation
  • Storage tanks
  • Fuel transfer
