Process Instrumentation and Analytics - Siemens Gas Void Fraction Eliminator for the lower production cost and increase the accuracy and efficiency in overall aspects




Providing solutions for chemical, oil and gas industry in the process instrumentation and analytics, Siemens introduces the Two-Phase Flow Gas Void Fraction Eliminator. The technology is answering to the problem of removing unwanted gas from the pipeline for the lower production cost and increase the accuracy and efficiency in overall aspects. The two-phase GVFE is designed to improve the performance of any flow meter installed within the liquid applications. The two-phase GVFE can detect and remove the unwanted entrained gases like annular, slug, stratified flow and bubbly.

This instrument is the instance of ideal solution for those require and need of separating the gases from liquids for high-precision flow measurement. For quick application, the GVFE become the handy instrument that can be directly integrated into the existing pipeline. By removing the undesired air or gas volume will ensure you to only paying and measuring for the liquid.

In the hydrocarbon applications, the GVFE enhances the flow meter performance. It removes the entrained gas for the more improved measurement in both stability and accuracy. GVFE is capable to detect and remove all types of unwanted entrained gas. The two-phase flow can influence your process, because the flow meters are mostly designed for the single phase flow. Then the liquid within the entrained gas generally causes flow meters to be improperly functioned and cannot accurately measure the liquid volume. This condition of course will leads to the higher operation cost. So the method offered by Siemens is to answer such of the mentioned problem.


Main Benefits of GVFE

The benefit of applying GVFE users can easily make direct integration into the new or existing pipeline configuration. Then it is very hygienic as the instrument has been built to ASME standards as well as marine-type approvals. Environmentally the GVFE also gives benefits to decrease potential for environmental hazards, suitable for the lower production cost and increase the accuracy and efficiency in overall aspects
GVFE comes in various sizes starting from 1” to 12”. It is allowing for a broad application fit. Custom size is also available from the pre-order. GVFE is supported with Satellite tracking.

There are numerous possible application of GVFE including pipeline, custody transfer, refinery, truck, land use allocations, barge loading, bunkering, oil wells, gas wells, onshore/offshore, on-loading/off-loading, wellhead and pipeline measurements.

Compared to the traditional gas eliminators, the Two-Phase Flow Gas Void Fraction Eliminator comes with extended features like the non-availability of mechanical parts or float operated valves which generally prone to failure in the traditional gas eliminators. Further more, in the traditional gas eliminator, the viscosity of the product as well as the retention time required will always increases. With the GVFE, the entrained gas will be removed at full-flow with no matter of the viscosity.


Conclusion

Compared to the traditional gas eliminator, the Siemens’ Two-Phase Gas Void Fraction Eliminators enhanced with more features and new technology allowing for the lower production cost and increase the accuracy and efficiency in overall aspects. The large application use, make it suitable for gas, oil and other liquid industry. The robust design is ensuring for the installation in the most hazardous area of industries like in the gas wells and oil wells. The direct integration is another plus – to the new or existing pipeline configurations.
