A superior option to traditional BS&W technologies, the patented offers the high accuracy and repeatability of microwave measurement in a package specifically designed for custody transfer and other low range applications.
Unique to the LRW™, AnyDensity™ technology allows the instrument to compensate for any change in density across the entire API gravity range.* This is paramount in situations where a single truck or rail unloading site could see swings in API gravity from the 20’s to the 60’s.
The patented and proven microwave technology used in the LRW™ provides industry-leading accuracy – as low as ±0.03% on 0-3% models. And, high quality components made and assembled entirely in the USA provide reliable and consistent performance for long-term use. Plus, the unit can easily be calibrated in line.
With insertable and spool/flow through models, the LRW™ also offers installation flexibility that no other unit can match. Spools can be custom fabricated for lines 1-2” and lengths 21” and above. Spools also incorporate static mixing elements to ensure a homogeneous flow and manual draw-off valves key for calibration and verification. Fixed insertion and insertable models can be installed on a 2″ port perpendicular to the flow.
- Meets API 8.2, ASTM D4177 and ISO 3171
- Simplest design in the industry
- Fully insertable
- No system shut downs
- 0.5 – 3 ml sample per bite
- Pneumatic or hydraulic drive
- Very low maintenance
Accurate oil-water measurement is a function of velocity. In situations with low velocity or inconsistent flow velocities, proper mixing for accurate measurement is unattainable, making real-time, in-line water-cut metering almost impossible in some applications and difficult in most.
However, the unique design of the ML Measurement Loop creates a consistent measurement environment and a constant velocity above 7fps, regardless of application, water concentration, fluid viscosity, or temperature. This velocity ensures fluid homogeneity and consistent oil/water droplet size ratio, guaranteeing highly accurate, repeatable measurement with the OWD Water Cut Meter.
