Flowrox, a global leader in heavy-duty industrial valve manufacturing and services, will be exhibiting its products at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston, Texas on May 4-7, 2015, focusing on creating awareness for its Flowrox Deposition Watch, which is of high relevance to oil and gas pipelines supplying the Energy Industry.
Participation in OTC 2015 allows companies like Flowrox to engage potential clients and strategic partners at a forum with global appeal to energy professionals seeking to learn about industry developments through networking, exhibits and technical programs.
The Flowrox Deposition Watch is of instrumental value to energy companies seeking to reduce or eliminate pipeline damage by monitoring and controlling the buildup of asphaltene depositions and paraffin wax that can create choke points that reduce the flow of heavy oils.
Beyond the instrument’s ability to monitor deposition in the pipeline, the Flowrox Deposition Watch also has the ability to provide multi-phase flow images, such as percentages of oil, sea water or sand.
Additional problems related to asphaltene and paraffin depositions in pipelines include adding stress to equipment such as pumps, which in turn leads to increased energy consumption—and decreasing that risk has become a paramount effort by Flowrox.
Flowrox’s patented algorithm monitors depositions with a 3D view of the pipe, tracks data on buildup growth rates and reports the available volume within the pipe—all leading to a proactive maintenance approach, rather than having to repair or replace a pipe after the damage.
Thanks to its ability to show pipeline deposits and the downward trend in pipeline capacity available, the Flowrox Deposition Watch offers a unique perspective on proactive maintenance that can prompt pipeline operators to take corrective action.
Case in point, common compounds found in oil pipelines that can lead to damaging buildup include a variety of resins, hydrocarbons and paraffin which increase the viscosity and decrease the mobility of fluids during the transportation process.
“A recent improvement to our Deposition Watch is that we have increased the temperature range monitoring from 200°F to 400° F,” said Todd Loudin, President at Flowrox. “This allows the device to detect asphaltene deposits in oil refineries, further extending our relevance beyond upstream Oil & Gas operations.”
Since its introduction, the Flowrox Deposition Watch has helped its customers reduce maintenance costs and extend the operational lifetime of equipment used across all sectors of the Energy Industry, which depend on the fast and efficient transportation of oil and gas.
Flowrox's commitment to the Energy Industry and Oil & Gas companies prompts the company to have a presence at industry events like OTC 2015, allowing its executives to engage the market where it counts and discuss the opportunities of preventing damaging depositions.
OTC 2015 will be held at the NRG Park in Houston, Texas and Flowrox will be exhibiting in booth #723.
