Mass Balance Systems 101 Computational Pipeline Monitoring Mass balance Other CPM options Real time transient model Pressure / flow monitoring Acoustic / negative pressure wave Statistical Mass balance Theory Line balance Volume balance Modified volume balance Compensated mass balance Page 1 Richard D. Newell, President, Auspex, Inc.,
Mass Balance, the real world Installation Design and configuration Instrumentation Calibration and Maintenance Telemetry SCADA data Scan rates Error handling Real world Tuning System upsets Leak location Batch tracking Page 2 Auspex, Inc.
Mass Balance, alarming Alarms Real alarms are important False alarms, a bigger problem Page 3 Auspex, Inc.
Mass Balance, evaluating Pros Low maintenance Operates with slower data rates Detect small leaks Cons Limited to liquids Does not handle slack or 2 phase flow Limited simulation Page 4 Auspex, Inc.
Mass Balance, conclusions Richard D. Newell President Auspex, Incorporated Richard D. Newell President Auspex, Incorporated Page 5 Since we can not know all that there is to be known about anything, we ought to know a little about everything, Pascal
