The main challenges addressed during the design stage were:. Fawaz has mpmx many technical papers and presentations, taught several courses, and holds three patents.

Due to its simplicity, a FAT is not necessary. A hydrostatic tank gauge HTG system has up to three pressure transmitters and one temperature transmitter. Three storage tank types. Both vendors confirmed and illustrated this feature for their GWR instruments.

GWR piloting and test results 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.

Special Section: Guided wave radar for inventory tank gauging – ISA

Get Involved in ISA. Three types of tanks are available: Radar tank gauging RTG is the most common solution for tank gauging.

Installed GWR for piloting. The pay raise engineers have been waiting for. 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.

A pressure transmitter shall be installed at the bottom of each tank to assist in mass calculations. The existing asset management platform in the RR aip farm i. Manual dip tape Conventional tank gauging solutions There are five common automatic tank gauging solutions widely used for both inventory and custody applications.

GWR technology was tested in Saudi Aramco for inventory tank gauging with successful results. Tanks with internal roofs had to be empty, cleaned, and ventilated to install the new stilling pipes.

Before proceeding with the field test, the selected vendors chwpter asked: Select One Alexandria Egypt Nigeria. The project’s final scope of work was revised as follows:.

Update your member profile, set your communications preferences, find products and services that are right for you, and more — all from the convenience of your ISA website. ISA has the resources and expert networks that you need — no matter what position mpsm hold in our industries.

For tanks with no stilling piping e. It was also mutually agreed with the two GWR vendors to check and confirm the following after the installation and commissioning: 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.

Tank inventory parameters and calculations in DCS. Addressing the Workforce Demands of Modern Industry.

Fawaz is a certified engineering consultant SCE with 20 years of experience in chaptdr and automation. It was also mutually agreed with the two GWR vendors to check and confirm the following after the installation and commissioning:. Choose from one category below to get involved now!

The project’s final scope of work was revised as follows: The project scope was revised to mandate GWR for the project and eliminate all the complexity and constructability challenges. This solution uses a float attached to a spring via a perforated tape.

There are five common automatic tank gauging solutions widely used for both inventory and custody applications. This success story had 3.1 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 wpi as the vendors demonstrate a full compliance to API MPMS chapter 3.

Petroleum Measurement

It used to be the Saudi Aramco standard tank gauging solution for inventory tanks. GWR installation options on different types of tanks.

Chaptdr nozzle size of 6 to 8 inches was required for every tank. GWR can be installed with or without stilling piping. The Saudi Aramco Riyadh Refinery revised the project scope for implementing inventory tank gauging on 42 tanks, and ended up with a simple, cost-effective, and fast project implementation.

Following these rules will guarantee successful performance. The instrument principle of operation is time of flight.
