Oil and Gas Measurement / Control Solutions

ABLE header

Able supply a wide range of specialised measurement instrumentation to the oil and gas industry. Our products include radar level gauges, float level switches, integrated metering systems and several types of flow meter.

Our application knowledge and proven track record of solving the most difficult applications has enabled us to develop our measurement solutions that accurately meet the requirements of almost any process application.

RF ADMITTANCE (RFA) LEVEL MEASUREMENT

Suitable for level measurement of liquids, granulars, slurries and interface in most process environments. High / low level alarm and continuous level measurement solutions are available.

Typical applications:

  • Storage / holding vessels, bulk storage tanks, flare knock out drums
  • Separators
  • Liquefied gases
  • Overfill prevention

RADAR LEVEL GAUGES

Non-contact radar and guided microwave radar transmitters (or TDR transmitters) are available for level control and tank gauging. Non-contact radar offers an easy to use level technique, ideal for tank and vessel measurements with almost any liquid and many solids.

Typical applications:

  • Storage / holding vessels, bulk storage tanks, flare knock out drums
  • Separator vessels, processing vessels, reactors, blenders, scrubbers and mixers

Guided radar transmitters are suitable for level indication of most liquids or solids and also interface on some applications.

FLOAT LEVEL SWITCHES

Our unique float level switch modular design (switch, flange and float) provides a solution for many high or low level applications. Renowned for reliability, our float level switches can be mounted either horizontally or vertically depending on application.

MAGNETIC LEVEL INDICATORS / GAUGES

Our magnetic level indicators and gauges provide a clear, high clarity indication of gauge liquid levels. A float containing a magnet rises and falls with the liquid. As the float moves, this information is transferred to the indication rail mounted on the outside of the tube. Various outputs are available for both point and continuous level control.

NUCLEONIC LEVEL DETECTORS

In nucleonic continuous level measurement, a narrow fan of radiation is directed through the vessel to a detector mounted on the opposite side for high accuracy measurement.

CARGO TRANSFER METERING (CTM)

Our integrated metering system is designed to provide fully verified flow data and fluid property information when moving bulk quantities of hydrocarbons during production and offloading process.

The system is ideally suited to the Floating Production, Storage and Offload (FPSO) unit, as well as the FSU, semi-sub or fixed production platform. A true alternative to conventionally used turbine style devices with prover loop systems.

ULTRASONIC CLAMP-ON FLOW METERS

Our dedicated and portable range of ultrasonic Wide-Beamâ„¢ clamp-on flow meters provides accurate, non-intrusive mass and volumetric flow metering for use on clean and dirty liquids with pipe OD ranging from 6mm to 10m. Single, dual and four channel versions are available.

Typical applications:

  • Chemical injection, water injection
  • Produced water applications
  • Temperature and oil / water separator vessels

CORIOLIS MASS FLOW METERS

Able's Coriolis flow meters are capable of withstanding vibration, high pressure, abrasion and corrosive media. Our range includes the world's largest mass flow meter.

The omega tube has a torsional movement, allowing increased tube wall thickness, eliminating the need for a secondary containment associated with other element designs.

Typical applications:

  • Drilling mud
  • Chemical injection
  • Gas measurement
  • Custody transfer duty
  • Heavy fuel oil / bunker

Other flow meter solutions include turbine flow meters and variable area flow meters (rotameters).

Our range of pressure instrumentation includes pressure and differential pressure switches, gauges and transmitters. Our products offer reliable measurement performance for critical applications. Thermowells are also available.

Flowmeters 23 December 2014 Understanding the accuracy of a given flowmeter is an important field but it can also be misleading, as different specifications are used to explain how accurately a flowmeter actually measures.
