Flowrox said that the Deposition Watch can reduce pipeline damage by using an algorithm to create a 3D view of the pipe, allowing firms to monitor the build-up of asphaltene depositions and paraffin wax.

The heavy-duty industrial valve manufacturer said that it hopes the event will provide an ideal opportunity to communicating the value of their product to major players in the oil and gas industries.

Asphaltene and paraffin deposits can damage pipelines by creating choke points that reduce the flow of heavy oils, add stress to pumps and other equipment and lead to higher energy consumption.

The company added that the watch also has the ability to provide multi-phase flow images such as percentages of oil, sea water or sand.

“A recent improvement to our Deposition Watch is that we have increased the temperature range monitoring from 93ºC to 204°C,” Flowrox president Todd Loudin revealed.

“This allows the device to detect asphaltene deposits in oil refineries, further extending our relevance beyond upstream oil and gas operations.”

Flowrox has been manufacturing industrial pumps and valves for more than 30 years, serving industries such as mining, minerals and metallurgy and energy and environment, as well as oil and gas.
