Oil and Gas Separator PLC Panels
52 Control Panels were needed to complete the project.
Industrial Panel Solutions worked with a large client in the great plain states and upper mid-west that is dominating the oil and gas industry. Our team’s responsibilities included revising and consulting panel design, component specification and sourcing, and panels’ fabrication. In total, IPS was responsible for the fabrication of 52 control panels consisting of over 1,500 individual parts and components. Our industry-leading 3-year warranty covers those components.
These panels are designed to control natural gas and oil separator vessels. Our panels monitor and control:
- Temperature and Pressure
- Oil, Water, and Gas Levels
- Dump Valves
- Slam Valves
- Various Valve Positions
- Flow Rate Monitors
- And More
These separator tanks use gravity to separate oil, gas, and other materials, including water. The water is distributed along different channels as the slurry of materials enters the separator tank, the gaseous components separate from the liquid components. The gaseous components are extracted and filtered while the liquid components are left to separate in a basin. As the liquids separate, oil rises above the water and flows over a barrier into an oil reservoir. Water is released by a valve in the first phase of the separator tank. This dump valve controls the emulsion level and ensures that only oil flows over and only water flows out of the valve. Temperature and pressure within the tank are critical for the gaseous components to ensure that they are a saturated gas, moving the most amount of natural gas as possible. Our panels provide the success of this operation.
Our panels are built and designed to operate reliably in the great plains and upper Midwest’s harsh outdoor environments, supplying critical infrastructure components that reach millions of Canadians and Americans.
