A prominent oil & gas company in Qatar faced a challenge related to temperature control in a salt-water application. They required a reliable solution to precisely measure and control the temperature of salt water used in cooling applications to ensure it was consistent with the temperature of the cooling water, mitigating the differences in temperature between the two. The specific application involved the use of temperature sensors to measure salt water, which was directly linked to cooling water. The primary challenge was to achieve consistent temperature readings between the two types of water, ensuring a seamless and efficient cooling process. The maintenance department sought a robust solution that would stand up to the corrosive nature of salt water while delivering precise and consistent readings.
Thermo Electric Instrumentation was chosen for the task due to our established reputation for reliability and the strong relationship we had built with the client. We were commissioned to design and manufacture unique industrial RTD assemblies tailored for salt-water applications. This was the first application of its type, marking us as pioneers in supplying this type of temperature sensor for these specific process requirements.
Our commitment to providing tailored solutions and our ability to adapt and solve unforeseen issues underscored the success of this project. Our customer, having consulted extensively with our team, received a solution that exceeded expectations in both performance and durability.
Our industrial RTD assemblies not only effectively measure and control the salt-water temperature, ensuring consistency with the cooling water, but also prove resistant to the corrosive marine environment. Once again, this project highlights the engineering capabilities of Thermo Electric Instrumentation and our expertise in delivering specialised temperature sensing solutions, reinforcing our status as a trusted partner in complex industrial applications.
This case underscores the critical role of tailored engineering solutions in addressing unique industrial challenges. It highlights our capability to deliver not just reliable temperature sensing products but to act as a partner to the industry, providing comprehensive solutions
