Pressure data loggers vs. strip chart recorders for geothermal applications

Companies are always looking for ways to improve their businesses and harness technology that will allow them to be as efficient as possible, particularly in the energy industries. In recent years, data logging technology has made a big impact by offering affordable, reliable alternatives to some older methods commonly used to monitor energy sources and output.

Transcripts - Pressure data loggers vs. strip chart recorders for geothermal applications

Warner, NH 03278 (603) 456-2011 info@madgetech.com Companies are always looking for ways to improve their businesses and harness technology that will allow them to be as efficient as possible, particularly in the energy industries. In recent years, data logging technology has made a big impact by offering affordable, reliable alternatives to some older methods commonly used to monitor energy sources and output. Geothermal energy companies must consistently and accurately monitor temperature and pressure conditions used to convert pressurized water into steam. Currently, there are two popular options to monitor and record this data: strip chart recorders and data loggers. Strip chart recorders use paper that is driven past a pen at a steady rate by a clockwork or electrical drive mechanism to record data, similar to a seismic graph. This method isn't very practical for energy companies to use in the field, because of the inevitably harsh conditions. Not only do the paper and ink need to be maintained and replaced, but the devices need to be manually read. Data loggers are a modern and efficient alternative to strip chart recorders. MadgeTech's variety of pressure recorders, such as the PRTemp1000 data logger for instance, connect directly to the wellhead of geothermal systems, which allows it to monitor and record pressure while deployed in the field for weeks at a time if necessary. The rugged stainless steel data logger body has been designed to be exposed to the harshest elements without impacting performance. Companies like Chevron Geothermal Philippines Holdings, Inc. use the device in the remote locations of the MakBan and Tiwi geothermal fields to record data from orifice plate installations to measure hot water and steam flow rates.
