Guided wave radar for inventory tank gauging

So, I want to give cjapter to the many people of the ISA who work on securing the future of the organization just as the original founders had. ISA was and is forged and founded from true honesty and integrity that you will not find in to many other professions. There are two internationally recognized standards covering tank gauging in atmospheric tanks.

There are five common automatic tank gauging solutions widely used for both inventory and custody applications. This solution is the reference for all other solutions, and it utilizes a dip tape.

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. This solution uses a float attached to a spring via a perforated tape. The spring provides constant tension, which balances the float on the liquid level. The perforated tape is connected to a mechanical counter assembly. The servo gauge uses the displacement measurement principle.

A small displacer weight on a measuring wire from a drum is accurately positioned and balanced in the liquid medium using a servomotor. These devices can meet the inventory and custody accuracy requirements. Radar tank gauging RTG is the most common solution for tank gauging.

It used to be the Saudi Aramco standard tank gauging solution for inventory tanks. This technology is microwave-based, which measures the distance from the top connection to the liquid surface. A hydrostatic tank gauge HTG system has up to three pressure transmitters and one temperature transmitter. Two pressure transmitters are installed close to the bottom of the tank and are used to calculate the density.

A third transmitter measures the vapor pressure at the top of the tank to increase the accuracy. Float and tape gauge Figure 3. Servo gauge Figure 4. 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.

Three types of tanks are available: The main challenges addressed during the design stage were:. The instrument principle of operation is time of flight. GWR technology has many advantages, which make it an attractive option for inventory tank gauging:. 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.

Over this period, the operation team conducted frequent manual gauging three times per test to check the installed accuracy of the GWR. It was also mutually agreed with the two GWR vendors to check and confirm the following after the installation and commissioning:.

Accordingly, four tanks were selected to proceed with the field trial. The figure 7 table highlights the data.

The sketches in figure 8 represent the installation setup for the GWR instruments on the three types of tanks from the left: After commissioning, the echo curve was collected for each transmitter to confirm a strong echo for each GWR, with no loss of signal and no interference figures 10 and Over one year, the refinery operation team conducted manual dipping to check the reading accuracy of the installed GWR instruments.

A sample of the data collected is in figure Pilot installation for GWR. GWR installation options on different types of tanks. The successful results of piloting GWR for the inventory tank gauging application revealed a new and suitable solution for Saudi Aramco’s Riyadh Refinery project.

The project scope was revised to mandate GWR for the project and eliminate all the complexity and constructability challenges. The vendor selection was biding based, since the GWR instruments from both vendors demonstrated a superior and equal performance. The project’s final scope of work was revised as follows:. Installed GWR for piloting.

This step has eliminated proprietary hardware and software for the tank inventory calculations. The journey of the Saudi Aramco tank gauging project has resulted in a simple, reliable, and highly economical system for inventory tank gauging. 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.

It is important to highlight that GWR has fundamental rules set by the manufacturers for selection, installation, and commissioning. Following these rules will guarantee successful performance. Deviating from these requirements can generate unpleasant challenges and errors in measurement.

The GWR success story has also opened another opportunity for using two-wire noncontact radar for inventory tank gauging, as these noncontact radar instruments have the capability to meet the requirements of API MPMS chapter 3. They can be very useful in applications like molten sulfur and asphalt.

This success story had an impact not only on the Riyadh Refinery project, but also on Saudi Aramco standards, which have been revised to specify two-wire GWR for inventory tank gauging, as long as the vendors demonstrate a full compliance to API MPMS chapter 3.

The certified measurement instrument should be traceable to the national or international standards and should be provided with a calibration correction table.

ATGs should provide security to prevent unauthorized adjustment or tampering. The level resolution of the transmitted signal is typically 1 mm.

Servo gauge The servo gauge uses the displacement measurement principle. Radar tank gauging Radar tank gauging RTG is the most common solution for tank gauging. Hydrostatic cnapter gauges A hydrostatic tank gauge HTG system has up to three pressure transmitters and one temperature transmitter.

HTG Project initial scope and challenges One recent tank gauging project at Saudi Aramco Company was scoped to install radar tank gauging with multiple points of temperature ai on 42 tanks for crude and refined products. The main challenges addressed during the design stage were: 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.

A nozzle size of 6 to 8 inches was required for every tank. A nozzle was required for the chaptet spot temperature transmitter. Tanks with internal roofs had to be empty, cleaned, and ventilated to install the new stilling pipes. This meant at least three-to-five years to execute the project. New cabinets, hardware, and software installations in the process interface buildings were required, which could mean expansion of existing buildings or construction of new ones.
