Guided wave radar for inventory tank gauging
The certified measurement instrument should be traceable to the national or international standards and should be provided with a calibration correction table. GWR advantages GWR technology has many advantages, which make it an attractive option for inventory tank gauging: The main challenges addressed during n design stage were:. GWR is a very economical choice in terms of capital and operating expenditures.
One recent tank gauging project at Saudi Aramco Company was scoped to install radar tank gauging with multiple points of temperature measurement on 42 tanks for crude and refined products. ISA and Beamex release a new, free calibration eBook. GWR shall be used for inventory tank gauging for the Riyadh Refinery project.
The existing FF segments in the refinery tank farm have been verified and found feasible to accommodate the new GWR instruments in this project. Founded inISA develops widely used global standards; certifies industry professionals; provides education and training; publishes books and technical articles; hosts conferences and exhibits; and provides networking and career development programs for its 40, members andcustomers around the world.
The Saudi Aramco Riyadh Refinery revised the project scope for implementing inventory tank gauging on 42 tanks, and ended up with a simple, cost-effective, and fast project implementation. Manual gauging uses either the innage from the top flange to the bottom of the tank or ullage from the top flange to the top liquid layer method to measure the total liquid level inside the tank. Installed GWR for piloting. The existing asset management platform in the RR tank farm i.
Moreover, it provides a versatile solution, which allows different hardware and communication protocols to be used and allows DCS as a platform for software inventory calculations.
This solution uses a float attached to a spring via a perforated tape. Accordingly, four tanks were selected to proceed with the field trial. The GWR level instrument is a two-wire transmitter and does not require an external power supply.
GWR has different and open communication protocols, such as analog mA, Foundation fieldbus, and wireless. Interested in attending an ISA Conference? Select One Alexandria Egypt Nigeria. The GWR success story has also opened another opportunity for using two-wire noncontact radar for inventory tank gauging, as these noncontact radar instruments chapger the capability to meet the requirements chaptre API MPMS chapter 3.
The project scope was revised to mandate GWR for the project and eliminate all the complexity and constructability challenges. GWR technology has many advantages, which make it an attractive option for inventory tank gauging:. The instrument principle of operation is time of flight.
GWR piloting and test results A plan was set to pilot four GWR level instruments from two different manufacturers on different types of tanks with different refinery products, mpns to mpjs the performance over one year. They can be very useful in applications like molten sulfur and asphalt. Pilot installation for GWR. This meant at least three-to-five years to execute the project. A plan was set to pilot four GWR level instruments from two different manufacturers on different types of tanks with different refinery products, and to monitor the performance over one year.
Servo gauge The servo gauge uses the displacement measurement principle. Three types of tanks are available: Each RTG required excavation for running new and long cables for the signals and for the external power supply, in the large tank farm area. Training Classes See All. Manual gauging This solution is the reference for all other solutions, and it utilizes a dip tape.

Both vendors confirmed and illustrated this feature for their GWR instruments. This step has eliminated proprietary hardware and software for the tank inventory calculations. Manual gauging compared to GWR reading.
