Providing real time measurement technologies to assist with critical decision making. Tracerco Scanning Services TRU-SCAN® Application. Do you have problems with the operation of your stripper/absorber or fractionation tower? Is this limiting production? Do you want to reduce your operating costs? Do you want to reduce your shutdown time?
Tracerco’s Tru-Scan™ technology, utilizing FrothView™, is used to evaluate the mechanical integrity and hydraulic performance of trayed columns by measuring the total or true froth height on tray decks and liquid backup in downcomers. Damaged or missing trays, plugged downcomers, feed issues, and tray fouling are examples of problems with columns that can be diagnosed with a Tru-Scan™.
Tracerco scanning services have a proven track record with over 40 years of experience in assisting with plant start-ups, pre-shutdown planning and operational trouble-shooting.
A Tru-Scan™ is generally performed without any preparation to the tower i.e. no insulation is removed. Tracerco’s TRU-SCAN® service has proven to be cost effective by reducing off-spec production and equipment downtime. In today’s highly competitive refining, petrochemical, and chemical processing markets, more customers are using Tru-Scan™ information to determine plant bottlenecks and optimize performance.

Its external modular design, with no moving parts, provides measurement redundancy, ...
Level, interface and multiphase measurement. The Profiler™ GPS provides a ‘window’ into the vessel to enable the operator to improve production throughput, reduce the number of unscheduled shutdowns and achieve significant cost savings. The Profiler™ GPS has no moving parts and is installed in ...
Bulk level and interface measurement. Optimus™ is designed for liquid level, interface and solids monitoring in upstream and downstream vessels. Optimus™ is suitable for bulk level measurement in the most challenging oil, chemical and petrochemical industry applications, including those with the ...
Bulk level and density measurement. Designed using innovative scintillator-based technology, Hyperion™ is a non-contact, no moving parts measurement solution that provides accurate and extremely reliable bulk level and density measurements. This enables operators in the oil, gas, petrochemical, refining, ...
The Challenge: Refiners aim to optimise feedstock blends to improve margins, but variability can bring significant operational challenges during the process. One critical need is the efficient removal of solids, salts and water from crude feedstock. It is essential that washing of the crude is effective ...
A Tracerco Diagnostics™ Distribution study can be performed to identify catalyst and vapor distribution in the stripper. Uniform distribution of catalyst and steam in the stripper is critical to achieve high stripping efficiency (less carry-down of the hydrocarbon products from reactor to regenerator). ...
Tracerco has been at the forefront of the development of online leak detection for the last 40 years. The method allows the detection of leaks as small as 0.5%. However, customer demands to measure smaller leaks affecting product quality, has prompted extensive research to develop alternative online ...
