US Strategic Petroleum Reserve relies on magnetic flow meters for accurate brine disposal measurement04 February, 2014 by Nicholas Voss, Product Manager, McCrometer
With a capacity of 727 million barrels, the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) is the world's largest stockpile of government-owned emergency crude oil. To retrieve oil from the salt caverns it is stored in, water is pumped in, making the oil rise to the surface. As a result of this design, the brine disposal lines need to be measured regularly for leaks, to meet environmental regulations.
The Sonatec inline sound velocity concentration monitor can be used in chemical, petrochemical, metal processing and pharmaceutical plants to determine the concentration of hydrocarbons, acids, alcohol, caustics, oil emulsions, oil in water and many other liquids.
