Oil pipeline interface detection in loading/unloading operations

Fuel oils (crude oil, fuel oil, diesel, multi-products) are transported from oil refineries to end users via a complex distribution system. Identifying the fuel type is a necessity, as different types of fuels are handled and passed through the distribution lines. The fuels are directed into the appropriate product tanks at the discharge end of the system. 

Instant detection of product interfaces

The time it takes for the interface to pass is extremely short and requires a rapid response to make the appropriate selections. Sampling is simply too slow method.

Vaisala K-PATENTS® Process refractometer provides in-line, real-time interface detection to ensure that each product ends up in the correct tank, and to eliminate costly trans-mix of products.
