Oil Company Uses SAGD for Heavy Oil Recovery

An oil company which regularly drills into reserves containing heavy crude oil required an advanced data logging system to monitor their operation. This crude is commonly harvested by drilling a horizontal well into the deposit and injecting steam into it to heat the bitumen and allow it to flow more smoothly. A second horizontal well is then drilled directly below the original to collect the oil and pump it to the surface, an involved process known as Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD). These wells are connected by long pipelines to the refinery itself for processing. Optimizing harvest efficiency is critical given the sheer volume of oil pumped from these reservoirs, requiring a powerful data logging solution to monitor the oil well temperatures. This is needed for both efficiency and safety reasons – any increase in temperature could cause a blowout, while sudden decreases often lead to wasteful pumping inefficiencies. Modem connectivity is therefore a must for connecting these loggers to a central computer for ease of reference. Continue reading …

Recording the Temperature of Railroad Car Wheels in Motion

Data Logging Railroad Car Wheel Temperatures

We recently received a request from a railroad company to find a way to record the temperature of railroad car wheels while the train was in motion. They had been experiencing a number of wheel and bearing failures which they believed were temperature related and they wanted to collect data while the train was in operation to help isolate the root cause. Read more about how we developed a custom solution using a dataTaker data logger in this new application note:  Railroad Preventative Maintenance.

EPA COMPLIANCE REQUIRED: Monitoring Diesel Generator Emissions

Diesel generators are utilized as backup power for a large book retailer in their warehouse. The retailer must assure the generators are constantly operational. They must also maintain data for the EPA to document that the exhaust temperature is in compliance with emission regulations.

EPA regulations state that the exhaust must meet and not exceed a specified level of pollutants during operations while maintaining a pre-determined temperature range. If all EPA requirements are not adhered to properly, the retailer could be penalized with heavy fines. In addition, the diesel engines could be subject to serious damage. (more…)

HELPING KEEP PET FOOD SAFE…Data Logging & Monitoring for Safety

Ensuring pet food production meets FDA requirements, manufacturers must monitor the temperature of their extruding equipment to document the food is properly processed and safe.

A CAS Data Logger customer held to these requirements also wanted to monitor the data from multiple sites from a single, corporate location. dataTaker DT80 units were selected for the solution. Each DT80 could monitor up to 4 extruders. (more…)
