By simulating process conditions and recreating our customers’ actual problems, WIKA is able to come up with measurement solutions for tough challenges in the oil & gas industry.
Conducting tests on a working reactor is expensive, as doing so requires taking the unit offline. The WIKA R&D Center for Temperature Measurement allows our engineers to replicate actual process conditions in order to solve industry challenges to better help customers increase their units’ safety and efficiency.
Our real-world testing platform is a 9.6M BTU unit that simulates process conditions of larger-scale reactors. As it circulates heat transfer fluid through a continuous loop, we collect real-time data on instrumentation, catalyst performance, and reactor internals, which our experts then analyze at the on-site control facility. We can:
- Detect catalyst maldistribution
- Increase throughput
- Maximize efficiency
Temperature measurement is not all that WIKA tests. Our comprehensive R&D facility also incorporates instrumentation for level, pressure, and flow.
