SOPAT Particle Measurement Technology in the Petrochemistry Sector

In upstream processes, one of the main goals is to optimize separation processes. The separation and treatment of oil-water mixtures often takes place under difficult conditions such as high pressure and high temperature, including further components such as sand, gas, and others.

The SOPAT technology has been especially designed for these heavy-duty conditions. Application examples are coalescers, crude oil refineries, distillation columns, separators or other downstream equipment. In-situ real-time measurement of droplet size distributions helps to optimize residence time and increase production efficiency.

Benefits of SOPAT particle measurement technology in the Petrochemistry Industry:

Differentiation between oil droplets and other dispersed particles
On- and off-shore installations
ATEX certifications available
Heavy duty: reliable robustness, for high pressures and temperatures

Probe Recommendations:

In Situ measurements from 1.5 to 250 µm

In Situ measurements from 2 to 300 µm

In Situ measurements from 9 to 1,100 µm
