Oil and Gas
Solutions for the Oil and Gas Industry
For companies operating in the oil and gas, refining, and petrochemical industries, fixed and mobile assets are often spread out over broad geographical areas and located at remote and hard to access sites. As the number of assets and the distance between assets grows, so does the complexity of managing each asset.
Banner offers powerful wireless solutions that help companies in these industries monitor and manage their remote and mobile assets. These cost-effective solutions combine secure, robust wireless communication with Banner’s impressive portfolio of sensors and LED indicators. Wireless sensor networks eliminate site visits to remote and distant assets as well as the need for long cable runs at a site. Improve operational efficiency and lower costs by wirelessly monitoring compressors, generators, tank levels, pressure, temperatures and vibration at remote and hard to access sites
Automatically monitoring the tank levels and controlling the pumps out in the gas field eliminates human error and can more quickly prevent costly spills. When the battery of salt water tanks is filled, a signal is sent wirelessly from the tank battery to the field pump to shut down the well. When the tank battery and pump are separated by miles of terrain, Banner’s MultiHop radios are an ideal solution.
To allow for quicker, more frequent, and more efficient scanning of target valve population tailpipe temperatures, a series of FlexPower Thermocouple Nodes and FlexPower Battery Supply Modules are installed. Temperature measurements of the valves and pipes are measured and wirelessly transmitted to a DXM100 Wireless Controller mounted in a central location. The DXM100 gathers the data and transfers the data to a SCADA system that monitors and graphically displays the temperature data.
To meet governmental regulations, landfill managers need to accurately monitor methane gas production, removal, venting, and burning. To accurately determine methane production levels and flow, a pressure transducer can detect both pressure and vacuum present within the methane production system.
