LumaSense To Join Partner AIMS at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition & Conference (ADIPEC)

LumaSense Technologies, Inc., an Advanced Energy company, is exhibiting flare monitoring solutions alongside local partner Analytical Instrumentation & Maintenance Systems (AIMS) November 12-15, 2018 at ADIPEC in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

More than 110,000 professionals attend ADIPEC, one of the world’s largest and influential oil and gas events for knowledge sharing and idea exchange. Safe flaring operations will be an important issue facing many attendees at this event. To maintain safe flaring operations, industry professionals need continuous monitoring of pilot flames and flared gases to ensure that vented gases are ignited and confirm combustion in the flaring process.

“Thermocouple failure, flame movement, varying luminosity, and adverse climate conditions are just a few of the obstacles that need to be overcome to gain long-term monitoring reliability,” says LumaSense E2T Product Manager David Ducharme. He also says that by installing a secondary continuous monitoring system, oil and gas professionals can overcome these challenges and fulfill the required regulations, even when primary systems fail.

LumaSense Technologies invites attendees to visit Hall 13, Stand #13790 to get information on application details and benefits of the new LumaSense flare monitoring systems designed specifically for continuous monitoring of pilot flames and flaring operations.

With the launch of our first-in-the- market PEEK filament in 2015 and other high performance polymeric materials afterwards, we have demonstrated within the Additive Manufacturing (AM) industry the possibility of driving innovation faster, creating new engineering parts quicker and minimizing the cost of innovation using our Apium technology. Our expertise in materials science and mechanical engineering provides proven processing experience of materials down to the Voxel level using Apium technology. Apium’s 3D Printing technology allows end-users cleverly manipulate the processing of amorphous, semi-crystalline and highly crystalline materials in a straight forward manner without the sometimes necessity for post-processing annealing.

Polypropylene is the new material addition to Apium’s portfolio, securing a key technical position amongst the other semi-crystalline materials at Apium namely PEEK, Carbon Fiber Reinforced PEEK, POM-C and PVDF.

Material Extrusion 3D Printing with Polypropylene (PP)

Polypropylene (PP) is a linear hydrocarbon thermoplastic polymer, created from the polymerization of propylene monomers. Its melting range extends from 130°C to 171°C. In terms of industrial production, PP is the next most widely used commodity polymer following polyethylene. According to the consumer research group Markets-and-Markets the polypropylene market is estimated at USD 75.40 Billion in 2017. With a CAGR of 5.6% it is projected to reach USD 99.17 Billion by 20221.

PP is one of the most versatile polymers with a wide variety of applications.

Some its noteworthy properties are:

  • very good chemical resistance, which makes it a good choice for container of liquids such as cleaning agents.
  • good fatigue resistance and retains its shape after a lot of bending, torsion or flexing. PP´s fatigue resistance property is very valuable for applications such as living hinges.
  • very high resistance to electricity which makes it a suitable material for electronic components.

New FKM material specifically to meet the demands of the oil and gas industry

With the newly developed FKM compound Vi 900, the seal manufacturer C. Otto Gehrckens presents a high-performance product innovation for use in the petrochemical industry. The material has proved its suitability as a dependable elastomer seal even under the most demanding conditions, complying with NORSOK test standard M-710 and also passing the hardness test with the best possible rating of 4x ‘0000’, without showing any damage whatsoever. Vi 900 is therefore ideally suited for use in production sectors which, as a result of the danger of explosive decompression, impose especially high demands on the seals used.

The special feature of this new product development is its outstanding stability under low temperatures. With a TR-10 value of -40°C, Vi 900 is suitable for the coldest applications, right down to -50°C and, as well as complying with the NORSOK standard, it therefore also complies with American standards API 6A and 6D for oil and gas installations. According to the manufacturer, combined with an extraordinarily good cold compression set this high-performance material sets new standards in relation to AED (anti-explosive decompression) and RGD (rapid gas decompression) seal materials.

A further plus point for this new FKM compound is its excellent resistance to a wide range of specific media and chemicals, from mineral oils to aliphatic, aromatic or even chlorinated hydrocarbons and also to acids in various concentrations and weak alkalis. And as the material is also characterized by very low gas permeability, a wide range of applications is possible. Vi 900 is used as a seal material in valves, ball cocks, pig traps or slider valves in production areas where the very highest levels of reliability and the best possible quality with respect to explosive decompression are required, above all in the petrochemical industry, in compressor construction and also in compressed air preparation. This new material is available with immediate effect.
