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

Monitoring Salt Water Disposal Tanks
Monitoring Salt Water Disposal Tanks

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.

Valve Temperature Monitoring at a Steam Power Plant
Valve Temperature Monitoring at a Steam Power Plant

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 Gateway Pro mounted in a central location. The Gateway Pro gathers the data and transfers the data to a SCADA system that monitors and graphically displays the temperature data.
