LumaSense presents the PULSAR 4 for Condition Based Monitoring of Petrochemical Combustion Vessels at SOGAT 2015
“The PULSAR 4 is the best way to keep valuable refinery assets performing and prevent unwarranted downtime”
SANTA CLARA, Frankfurt/M, Mar. 2015 – LumaSense Technologies, Inc.® will showcase the next generation petrochemical infrared sensor, the PULSAR 4 at SOGAT 2015, a very targeted congress for Sour Oil and Gas Advanced Technology in Abu Dhabi. With installations at over 550 petrochemical facilities worldwide, the PULSAR 4 is LumaSense’s latest addition to its E2T line of petrochemical infrared sensors.
Oil & Gas operations are heavily dependent on combustion based processes to supply the world’s growing energy needs. The PULSAR 4 is intended for monitoring the Refractory and Gas temperatures inside Sulfur Recovery Units, Sulfur Burner Furnaces, and Thermal Oxidizer Furnaces frequently found at these facilities.
“Any one of these vessels can force a shut down that will cost $1M or more per day”, said LumaSense CEO, Steve Abely. “Unplanned downtime eats into planned profits, whereas increasing uptime increases profit. The PULSAR 4 is a condition based maintenance system to protect refinery profits”, continued Abely.
The PULSAR 4 is an explosion proof infrared thermometer (pyrometer) with the ability to see through flames and simultaneously deliver the Refractory Temperature and Gas Temperature with precision to 0.3 °C and a range of 350° to 2000° C. The PULSAR 4 Advanced features LumaSense’s propriety Smart Flame Measurement Algorithm (Smart FMA™) which accounts for flame transparency that can affect the temperature readings for a more precise view of activity inside these vessels. LumaSense’s updated and powerful InfraWin software interprets the data from the PULSAR 4 for analysis inside control room.
“Our Smart FMA™ technology, serviceability, and long standing relationships with major producers is what separates the PULSAR 4 from the rest”, said E2T product manager David Ducharme.
Customers with PULSAR II and III can leverage their existing infrastructure to upgrade these units to the new PULSAR 4 and its advanced capabilities.
