Saving energy costs during oil production – Whitepaper by Emerson

Emerson Process Management was facing the challenge of maintaining adequate storage capacity of production tanks used for draining sand and water during oil production. They managed to reduce safety risks, energy and maintenance costs with a non-contacting radar and level switch combination for an oil producing customer in Europe.

Key Facts

  • Previously the oil producer used a displacer pumping the oil/water mixture into the tank from several pipes along the top, but the displacer operated unreliably.
  • Emerson managed to reduce safety risks, energy and maintenance costs with a non-contacting radar and level switch combination.
  • The solution took the form of a non-contact radar using low frequency radar beams that can measure through foam and turbulence.
