NSI provides advanced temperature control and hazardous area expertise to production of clean energy solutions from heavy oil feedstock. NSI was chosen for two excellent reasons:
- Expertise in advanced temperature control
- Process visualization in a hazardous area environment
From a temperature perspective, the electric heaters will be fired by over 100 Eurotherm EPack power controllers for electric heaters, all of which will feature partial / full load failure break detection with associated alarming through Modbus TCP communications. Control will be handled by the powerful Eurotherm 2750 Multi-loop control system.
From a hazardous area perspective, the SCRs will be housed in a purged panel, using a purge system made by EXPO Technologies. The thermocouples for the project will be brought into the system through intrinsic safety method, using the MTL 831C for over 150+ thermocouples. The remaining 4-20 mA and I/O will be handled via intrinsic safety by the unique MTL SUM5 series, a digitally-programmable IS system.
