Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK - Icenta Controls, A British manufacturer of high quality Turbine Flow Meters has introduced to its Metri Measurements range a customised High Pressure Turbine Meter made from exotic materials (Super Duplex & 6MO Body) for a Water Injection application.
Water injection is a method in the oil industry where water is injected back into the oil reservoir, to increase pressure and maximise production. Through conventional methods only around 30% of the oil in a reservoir can be extracted, however water injection increases the recovery factor and maintains the production rate of a reservoir over a longer period of time.
“The Metri LTM is a versatile meter with high accuracy performance and when combined with its low cost of ownership it’s easy to see why the LTM Turbine Flow Meter is still a highly popular choice for many uses.” Stated Paul Gentle, Owner of Icenta Controls Ltd. “Icenta is constantly developing its Metri product range to encompass new materials, flow rates and connections to enable it to be used across many different industries”
A mix of chemical resistance materials were used to achieve application and product compatibility and long term service. 6 Mo (UNS S31254) is a super austenitic stainless steel with a high level of molybdenum and nitrogen, providing high resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion as well as high strength making it the ideal material for Oil and Gas - Water Injection applications. Other material were used for internal wetted parts. Each Turbine rotor and support being machined from exotic materials.
