As the winter season begins, a decrease in temperatures below the freezing mark become a major factor of influence for the optimal operation of Oil & Gas operations
Resistance temperatures detector or RTDs are one of the most common temperature-sensing devices in use across a wide range of equipment in the Petrochemical and Oil & Gas industries. RTDs are extremely sensitive devices crafted to detect the shift in temperatures.
The moment that temperatures deep below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, the physics and operational dynamics of an entire plant will change as water becomes ice—influencing how equipment operates. Therefore, it is of critical importance to ensure your RTDs are not only capable of withstanding extreme cold temperatures, but also that you check for potential reliability issues.
By design, RTDs are connected to an HMI for monitoring but can also trigger other automated processes in reaction to a change in temperature. In industrial operations, RTDs can also monitor sudden changes in temperature that can threaten your equipment and human life.
From an engineering perspective, temperature measurement and operational stability go hand-in-hand since monitoring is largely an automated process, with hundreds—if not thousands—of measurement points across systems in an Oil & Gas operation.
Temp-Pro supports clients’ Oil & Gas operations with a variety of RTDs designed to operate in the most extreme environmental conditions—including the wintry cold expected this upcoming season. Every one of our RTDs and related temperature-sensing devices are rated to withstand the demands of below-freezing temperatures.
This is why Temp-Pro advices clients to consult with our temperature sensing device experts in advance of the next cold snap. Not only will you be fulfilling best practices but can potentially avert potential threats or impending challenges that can arise from any malfunctioning temperature sensor equipment—such as RTDs.
As a leader in the Industry, Temp-Pro delivers a complete range of temperature sensors for the most demanding requirements and applications. Contact Temp-Pro today for a product quote and be sure to stay proactive in evaluating your need for reliable RTDs before the temperatures get any colder.
