GE Unveils Advanced Solution for Maintaining Corrosion-free Oil Refineries
FREMONT, CA: GE, a digital based industrial company has launched TrueSense, a new online monitoring system ensuring corrosion protection in oil refineries. The upgraded version of TrueSense is developed for Process Crude Overhead Monitoring System (COMS) focused on reducing fouling and corrosion. GE’s innovative product helps to extend equipment life and prevents the release of hydrocarbons into the environment and atmosphere.
“Since its introduction in 2010, GE's TrueSense digital platform has monitored, automated and optimized chemistry that has enabled our industrial customers to protect their assets,” said Amy Ericson, Global Leader, Chemical and Monitoring solutions for water and process technologies, GE Power.
TrueSense for Process COMS offers real-time and continuous on-stream measurement capability to control consistent chemical injections. By facilitating continuous online measurement of parameters such as corrosion probes, chlorides and pH, the product delivers a complete corrosion protection service to the crude unit overhead systems. In response to the measurements, the digital system also automates the function of chemical injection control.
Features such as automated corrosion probe readings and chloride measurement testing are included in the upgraded version of the TrueSense platform. Previously, only manual options were available. Apart from increasing the frequency of readings, the corrosion and chloride probe measurements can also be uploaded to the GE’s InSight knowledge management platform seamlessly.
The company’s product for Process COMS can help refineries to cut down the maintenance expenses and unscheduled shutdowns. The platform effectively extends the life of the equipment and improves operational flexibility, reliability and profits. When associated with GE’s cloud-based LoSALT ionic equilibrium model, refineries can achieve a greater evaluation ratio of system performance; automating the calculations of dew point and system salt temperature.
“Our latest incarnation, TrueSense for Process COMS, is ideal for oil refineries and petrochemical plants where reduction of system corrosion and fouling is critical to a successful operation,” adds Ericson.
