Piping & Flare Systems - determine vapour flow and sludge build-up
Tracerco routinely provides flowrate, leak testing, pipe scanning and meter calibration services. Fast, accurate, and cost effective, our technology will help you determine the flow of vapour, build-up of sludge and other fouling materials in process piping or flarelines. The technology we use to analyse pipeline deposits is quick and non-intrusive. The results enable you to plan cleaning efficiently and minimise downtime. Tracerco can also produce a detailed density map of pipeline deposits using advanced tomography ThruVision™ technology.
We can also use a gamma scan to monitor slugs in your pipes. We place gamma sources and detectors and measure the signal intensity at two different points. Because the intensity changes when a slug passes, this lets us calculate how fast slugs are moving, and how frequent they are.
Our proven tracer technology is used to make reliable, accurate calculations of the flow rate in your pipes. This tells you how fast fluid is flowing through your pipe by measuring how long it takes the tracer to move between two different points.
Tracerco Diagnostic™ flow study uses tracers to let you find out where excess gas is entering a flare system, and work out its volume. By measuring how fast gas is moving through your flare lines, we can also verify your data, so you can have confidence that it’s accurate. By finding out where the gas velocity increases, we can pinpoint the source of the leak.
