Valero in Meraux, Louisiana uses ISL VIDA to Determine Density of Heavy Samples

Performing density analysis on heavy samples, such as black oils, fuel oils, fuel oil blends, and crude oil, can be difficult since they can be highly viscous. This creates at least two major issues: the sample must be heated prior to analysis and the thickness of the sample makes it difficult to clean the system. In this case study, we will show how the ISL VIDA was a better solution than the traditional hydrometer for determining the density of heavy samples at the Valero refinery lab in Meraux, LA, USA.  Click here to read the full case study.

"Electro-Motive Diesel, Inc. (EMD) Uses Cambridge Oil Viscosity Sensors on Their Most Advanced Production Engines"

Cambridge Viscosity by PAC is the production supplier of oil condition sensors for Electro-Motive Diesel, Inc. (EMD) H-series engine. EMD’s most advanced engine sports a brand new 4-cylinder design and has been installed in five offshore supply tugs for Tidewater, a multinational oil field service company. In recent pulling capacity tests, these vessels have broken world records and are among the most advanced hybrid diesel-electric vessels in the world. Click here to read the full case study.

"When Oil Is Struck, Cambridge Viscosity Helps Schlumberger-DBR Technology Analyze It"

DBR Technology Center, a division of Schlumberger Canada Limited, provides quality phase behavior and other forms of analysis on petroleum hydrocarbon fluids. One of the key attributes that the company’s engineers need to measure under high-pressure and controlled temperature conditions is viscosity. DBR recognized that Cambridge Viscosity (CVI) by PAC had technology with characteristics of significant value in analyzing live oil and began mounting high-pressure versions of CVI 300 series sensors in its oil analysis system. Over the course of a few years, CVI worked closely with DBR to modify and upgrade the viscometer design to meet DBR’s evolving requirements.This work ultimately led to the development of the 440 sensor, which offers a tenfold improvement in accuracy over other high-pressure sensors.
