Ship loading and offloading

Highest efficiency and accuracy during loading/offloading with our Proline Promass X Coriolis meter

In ship loading/offloading applications both parties are keen on getting reliable and fast transactions no matter the product or process conditions e.g. air presence. The terminal or depot companies are either receiving or selling the product, as well as the ship companies receiving or buying it.
Systems are usually bi-directional and accuracy, as well as reliability, must be certified and guaranteed for the entire life of the system. With our system we can help you overcome these challenges.

Promass Coriolis meters make the difference

Direct mass meters are the heart of the metering system, and our Coriolis mass meters fit perfectly into your application - providing you with a wealth of benefits:

  • Confidence and profitability at the same time guarantee accurate measurement and data integration into flow computer/batch controller

  • Enhanced efficiency thanks to stable performance of fluid density/viscosity

  • Transparent information on quality of the product at any time thanks to direct density measurement

  • Low-maintenance effort due to absence of rotating parts

  • Highest efficiency for your loading application with the first 4 tubes 12 “ Coriolis meter Promass X allowing to handle up to 2000 ton/hr

  • Safer loading thanks to higher tolerance of air content than with mechanical meters

System configuration

A typical system configuration includes:

  • Isolation valves

  • Air eliminator

  • Level control system

  • Mass flow meter

  • Temperature

  • Pressure transmitter

  • Indicator and flow control valve working as back pressure for off loading application

The monitoring and automation of the system as well as the compensation calculations for custody transfer purposes are handled by the flow computer or batch controller.

A trusted partner by your side with know-how and expertise

Our know-how and experience allows us to provide you with a full solution skid-mounted and certified-for-custody transfer application according to international standards (e.g. OIML MID-005, API MPMS) or specific local standards. These systems require periodic verification which we can cover for you with our master meter concept and proven solutions (fixed or portable).
