The traditional orifice flowmeter body cleaning process is a dirty, stupid, both money and inefficient work. It needs to drag the flowmeter body from the tube, and then either on a fixed tube or hanging with a crane, and then a large and expensive grinding stone through its internal rotation back and forth to clean up. This is a laborious and inefficient labor. Because this requires not only the cost of leasing dedicated lifting equipment, hiring skilled pipe workers, but also because of the rotation of the grinding stone and bruise the internal surface of the flowmeter, the resulting waste debris can also pollute the surrounding environment.
Mr. Robert A. Bornes of Illinois, USA, observed the drawbacks of the traditional clean-up process and developed a new method of online cleaning of the orifice flowmeter body after four years of painstaking research. The flow of the flowmeter, which was named the Bowners Cleansing Act, was an inspiration for the flow of the flowmeter in the observation of a large natural gas underground reservoir in Illinois by itself and the engineering team The
The Bones online cleaning method uses a specially developed, can enter the flowmeter body inside a cleaning flange, flange with a high pressure spray gun. The gun uses a specially designed rotary nozzle to spray a hard surface cleaner that is not hazardous and biodegradable inside the body of the flowmeter. The gun engraved with a certain part of the body through the flow meter mark. It can reduce and remove all the ethylene glycol and grease contaminants and debris attached to the inner surface of the body, and finally capture dirt and debris under closed loop conditions. The technician came to clean up the site to complete this work is to take the general contract work (turnkey project), so no other client.
Bowners flow meter body online cleaning method has the following advantages:
(1) to avoid the preparation of related equipment, skilled management of the employment and the complicated operation of the process caused by the high cost;
(2) out of the past, followed by the use of rotating grinding stone scraping equipment, the old way to complete the past high cost of cleaning work, and enhance the flow meter measurement accuracy;
(3) to reduce the flow meter to clear the downtime, it can be quickly re-put into use;
(4) all the waste liquid can be cleaned up in a closed loop system.
