Custody transfer – it’s the one place suppliers and producers in the oil and gas industry are looking for better accuracy. Knowing your equipment is working properly is key to the financial success of your company. One essential piece of the puzzle is the custody transfer mixer, and it’s there that you’ll absolutely want to turn to Komax.
The Issues That Cost Your Company Money
The Komax Custody Transfer Mixer is typically installed upstream of the sampling transfer line to help make certain bottom sediment and water is completely dispersed for optimized metering performance.
Accurate measurement is obviously essential because crude is transferred in large quantities, and a small error, can mean a big impact. Imagine, for example, a tanker is taking on 700,000 barrels of crude. The custody transfer system makes a tiny mistake, and suddenly, you’re out hundreds of thousands of dollars because it wasn’t mixed well. Many things can go wrong at the point of custody transfer, and one of the best ways to solve the potential problem is to move forward with Komax technology in the custody mixing system.
Komax developed a CT mixer that was specially designed to address the needs of custody transfer issues. It can either be installed in a pipeline that runs horizontally or vertically, and the internal vortices send a portion of the flow back upstream, which helps to minimize spikes. You’re never going to see overmixing or emulsifying, both of which are fairly common with other mixers. We’ve even included a special exit straightening fin that helps to end axial rotation of the flow as it moves downstream.
