Subsea and Topside Asset Integrity
ECHO Acoustic Sand Detectors, monitor solid particles in single and multiphase flowing operations.
Employing ultrasonic technology ECHO detects the acoustic noise generated by sand and other particles when they collide into the walls of pipeline then notifying the operator if their concentration reaches above safe tolerable levels, inciting reactive actions to protect critical infrastructure and optimizing production.
Being the next generation of smart instruments ECHO uses digital signal processing algorithms to provide real time data to operator. The device can be easily integrated into any system via digital or analog interfaces or wireless.
Enhanced acoustic sensitivity, maximum reliability, low maintenance cost and long service life make Echo the perfect choice for gas and oil pipeline at any climate, from Polar to Tropical. The device comes in two versions: for onshore and subsea applications.
