Semaphore, a Servelec Group Company, announces the industry’s fastest, most secure gas flow computing solution that provides measurement and control plus access by users, anytime, anywhere. Housed in a rugged, compact package, the solution incorporates integrated 3G cellular communications, Web server, immediate notification technology, and mobile device connectivity.
Semaphore’s new gas flow measurement computer is ideal for production sites with multiple wells and multiple run metering and regulating (M&R) stations. It can scale from one well to thousands without changing infrastructure. The solution provides compatibility and connectivity with legacy or future devices – for easy and immediate data acquisition and notification.
Semaphore’s flow computing solution meets or exceeds Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) Directive 17 and American Petroleum Institute (API) Chapter 21.1 requirements. It operates over a -40 to 70 degree C temperature range and is approved for installation in Class I, Division 2, Groups A – D hazardous areas.
The flow computing solution consists of Semaphore’s TBox LT2, high-performance remote terminal unit (RTU) and TFlo™ gas measurement application software with pre-configured PC menus and Web pages.
TBox LT2 RTU is an all-in-one SCADA system featuring integral Web server, 3G wireless communications, and a complete cyber security application suite, all tightly integrated with programmable automation, alarm notification, data logging, and Ethernet communications. TBox LT2 provides instant notification of alarms and live conditions via e-mail, FTP, and text messaging, as well as timely reporting of gas measurement information to multiple recipients. It also provides traditional, SCADA communications for gas measurement using the Enron Modbus protocol.
TFlo™ software is a standard application that supports any combination of meters that are common in well site and pipeline installations, including Coriolis, positive displacement, rotary, orifice, turbine, ultrasonic, V-Cone, and Wafer Cone. TFlo software’s flow and energy calculations include the latest versions of AGA3, AGA5, AGA7, AGA8 Gross & Detail methods, and AGA11 (mass to volume calculation).
Device-agnostic Web pages make information available to users anytime, anywhere with connectivity to virtually any mobile device. In addition, with Semaphore’s WebForm™ Studio 2.0 Webserver, users can quickly customize Web pages to meet specific requirements without coding or programming.
The Semaphore Gas Flow Measurement Solution can be ordered for delivery during the first quarter of 2014.
