Employing cutting-edge sensing technology and unique features like X-ray interference protection, our instruments are always a step ahead. They provide first class performance, stability, and repeatability, and above all ensure safety for the process, operators and the environment due to high measurement availability and advanced self-diagnostics (
As a technology partner Berthold gladly supports their customers with expertise and know-how in the development of tailored measurement solutions.
LEARN FROM OUR EXPERTS how the performance of separators and electrostatic coalescers (desalters/dehydrators) can be improved by design and control instrumentation.
The LB480 SpeedStar is used when the speed of the measurement is crucial. Due to the extremely short response time of 50ms, rapid changes such as slugs are detected early, allowing operators or the control system to compensate before they reach the production processes downstream.
Especially in low radiation conditions, our highly sensitive detectors improve the signal to noise ratio, what is resulting in superior measurement performance compared to competing systems. Source replacement is costly, time consuming, and does not work towards a reduction in overall site source activity.
Theas a constant reference ensures accurate and stable performance of the detector, regardless of ambient temperatures. It even compensates for the degradation of electronic components. Thus the detectors reach an unmatched repeatability,with drift below 0.5%.
The SENSseries LB 480 series offers versions that are certified for use in SIL2 applications. SIL3 is achieved by adding an identical redundant SIL2 detector using the same source for homogenous redundancy. The certificate covers all measurement applications, from high level or low level alarms to continuous level and density. Thus the safe measurement of critical processes is guaranteed.
When radiometric measurements are applied, radiation safety is a big concern, which makes the supply of high sensitive detectors Berthold’s main priority. The use of high-quality scintillators is one of many reasons that our detectors can be operated with 80% lower source activity than competitors.
A reliable measurement, requiring no recalibration, is vital for the operation of the alky unit, and is our highest priority. Berthold’s detectors offer stability in the face of changes in ambient temperature. Even drastic temperature shifts, e.g. from winter to summer do not cause measurement drift. Our patented method for detector stabilization compensates for temperature changes and aging.
Anat the feeding line provides real-time information on the mud density before it enters the wellbore. The mixture is measured before it is pumped down to ensure proper fluid density. While drilling, mud is continually pumped into the well drill bore, and the density is adjusted by adding material solids depending on the drilling operations. Lighter fluid density is used while drilling, and heavier density if the drilling has to stop due to bit replacement or any other issues. The correct mud formulation ensures smooth forward propulsion. Wear-free drilling and excellent sealing of the borehole is ensured by monitoring mud density. Our solution for
The Berthold instruments used for
A reliable control of this interface is very important because it prevents oil from entering the water outlet and ensures that water is not reaching the oil side.
Berthold are used in horizontal and vertical separators ensuring maximum safety and reliability in the prevailing high pressure and high temperature processes.
Berthold level transmitters are used to monitor measuring ranges, from a few millimeters up to several meters. The radiometric level measurements are non-contacting and non-intrusive and operate with constantly high accuracy and repeatability through-out the whole time of operation. As the components are mounted on the outer wall, they do not come into contact with the measured material and are therefore not exposed to wear and tear. Our solution for
This system measures the level and the thickness of the different product layers: gas, oil, emulsion, water, and sand. It provides real time values and a graphic display for trending in order to improve control parameters like residence time and chemical addition. See our solution for
Examples include disturbance in separators, excessive flaring and reduction of production capacities. In order to reduce the adverse effects an early detection of an arriving slug is essential. The slugs are measured by means ofwith shortest response time to guarantee an early warning and initiation of appropriate measures.
The liquids are collected in the bottom of the vessel and have to be measured by a reliable measuring system. Berthold
Berthold radiometric level transmitters are ideal for monitoring the sand level, because of their non-contacting nature. Depending on the individual application and requirements the measurement can be realized either with multiple point level measurements or with continuous level measurements. Our Berthold
Berthold offers nuclear density meter that are specifically designed for use in hydraulic fracturing and cementing applications. The systems are installed on blender trucks, high pressure lines and cementing lines, providing an online measurement of PPA, PPG, density in SPU or solid concentration
Berthold has published the whitepaper “Rod source / point detector arrangement”, wherein the advantages and benefits of a rod source/point detector arrangement are explained. Due to less frequent production downtimes, simpler and thus more economical spare parts inventory, increased long-term and temperature stability and consistent process quality, the higher acquisition costs are mitigated within a short period of time.
