HIGH-ACCURACY CORIOLIS FLOW & DENSITY MEASUREMENT

TRICOR® Coriolis Flow Meters for Marine

Slide background
Application/Industry:

Marine

With our vast experience in automation and instrumentation, we are also able to understand the requirements for Coriolis Mass Flow Meters in the maritime industry. We offer you field tested and proven solutions that meet rules and regulations – and help you save money. To accurately measure fuel consumption based on mass flow is becoming key for ship owners and operators in a field where fuel consumption contributes most to the total costs. Accurate mass flow measurement with a TRICOR Coriolis Mass Flow Meter helps ship owners, operators and charterers to better control costs, decrease fuel consumption and as a consequence increase competitiveness of your fleet.  With class leading density measurement and competitive pricing you should get the quickest possible return of investment.

  • Reliable and highly accurate mass flow measurement
  • No up and downstream sections required
  • Direct mass flow measurement
  • Real time density measurement for fuel quality control
  • All in one mass flow and density meter
  • Replaces all kind of volume based flow meters
  • Customized installation length
  • Maintenance free
  • Recommended 5 year meter recalibration

Marine Open and Closed loop recirculation

Explanations:

(1) Total Supply only
(1) – Δ (2 & 3) = Total Consumption AUX or
(1) – Δ (4 & 5) = Total Consumption ME
Δ (2 & 3) + Δ (4 & 5) = Total Consumption

 

Cost savings for existing installations:
With it’s class leading density measurement each TRICOR® Corliolis Flow Meter is a perfect complementary flow meter even for existing volume based flow meters, typically PD meters, in supply and return lines. The TRICOR® Coriolis Flow Meter can measure mass flow behind the Booster Pumps and at the same time do an online density measurement for the volume flow meters on supply and return lines of the main engine to calculate realtime mass flow through the volume flow information of the PD meters and the realtime density measurement of the TRICOR® Coriolis Flow Meter.

Bunker Tanks
These are the biggest tanks in terms of capacity present on board a ship. They are used to store fuel and diesel oil received in bulk after bunkering. The locations of bunker tanks are normally outside the engine room and they are generally a wing or double bottom tank. Low sulphur oil and marine gas oil is bunkered in separate dedicated bunker tanks to avoid mix up of fuel.

Settling Tanks
Generally, more than two settling tanks are present and located on a ship as part of the bulkhead of the engine room. Oil from the bunker tank is transferred into the settling tank. The diesel oil settling tank can be located as double bottom tank in the engine room. Settling tank for low sulphur oil and marine gas oil is kept separate from other fuel oil.

Service Tanks
Service tanks onboard ships are used to store and supply treated oil to main engine, auxiliary engine and boilers. The number of such tanks can be one or more. Fuel oil and diesel oil service tanks are normally located as a part of the bulkhead of the engine room. Low service fuel oil (L.S.F.O) and marine gas oil (M.G.O) tanks are dedicated tanks to avoid mix up.
