DSP Particle Monitor

Any owner or operator of a factory would surely like to operate it as efficiently and profitably as possible. An oil or gas well can be regarded as a factory, and the ClampOn sand detector gives operators the best tool for maximizing profits. ClampOn’s DSP systems operate on thousands of wells every year, and the company is the world’s largest supplier of sand monitoring systems. ClampOn is the natural choice for sand monitoring and management programs!

DSP-06 Particle Monitor

How it works

The ClampOn DSP Particle Monitor is based on the ClampOn “Ultrasonic Intelligent Sensor” technology. The sensor is installed two pipe diameters after a bend, where the particles/solids impact the inside of the pipe wall, generating ultrasound. The ultrasonic signal is transmitted through the pipe wall and picked up by the acoustic sensor.

DSP Particle Monitor

Sand production in oil and gas wells is a serious issue facing oil and gas producers. The challenge is not merely to avoid sand production, but also to increase commercial well productivity, as even small quantities of particles in the well flow can cause significant damage. As an operator you are interested in maximum production and profit from your wells, no matter what technology you use. Operators all over the world have made ClampOn their preferred supplier of sand monitoring systems, due to the patented technology that turns their wells into profit generators.

The ClampOn DSP model incorporates a new filtering technique that makes the particle monitor an extremely useful tool for analyzing the true nature of sand production, helping to control it and finally, increasing the profit from the well! This filtering technique is the result of integrating our experience of thousands of wells, analyzing data and using the results to enhance the technology used in our DSP model.

All our instruments are equipped with both digital and analogue interface, and comply with all common protocols. Our instruments can easily be integrated into any existing or new control system. A computer with our software is often used in-between our instruments and the control system. The computer will be used for sand calculation by using the RAW data from our sand detectors and flow data from third party systems, then output calculated sand rate to the control system. All recorded data will also be stored for analyzing and calibration purposes. We always recommend using the digital interface due to following benefits:

  • Two way communication enabling instrument software update and configuration
  • Full signal range resolution
  • All sensor data can be transmitted
  • No signal loss
