Silixa to attend AGU’s Fall Meeting in San Francisco, USA on 15-19 December, 2014

The American Geophysical Union’s Annual Fall Meeting is the largest worldwide conference in the geophysical sciences, showcasing the latest technology, research and emerging trends in earth sciences. The technical program includes presentations on new and cutting-edge science, much of which has not yet been published.

Thomas I Coleman, Silixa’s Environmental Engineer, will be presenting on the use of fiber-optic distributed temperature sensing (DTS) for borehole applications on 18 December 2014; between 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM. (Abstract Title: Quantification of Natural Gradient Flow Using Active Fibre Optic DTS in Sealed Boreholes, NS41C-06)

Distributed Temperature Sensing for process monitoring in deep fractured rock environments has been used in the oil and gas industry for over two decades. Improvements in DTS system resolution, methodology advancements, and improved data processing techniques have all contributed to a recent increase in the use of DTS  for shallow fractured rock hydrogeologic applications.

In his presentation, Thomas will focus on a powerful advance in DTS methodology, the use of response data collected during active cable heating, to better characterize natural gradient flow processes.

Silixa announces ruggedised XT-DTS™ release

London, 14 April 2014 – Silixa Ltd announces the release of the XT-DTS, the highest performance, ruggedised distributed temperature sensor currently on the market. Designed for remote and hostile environments, the unit collects extremely fine resolution data over a class-leading operating temperature range of -40°C to +65°C.

The XT-DTS, the latest addition to the company’s ULTIMA™ DTS family, is a low power DC-operated sensing unit that matches the superior performance and reliability delivered by the ULTIMA™ DTS. With its ruggedised nature, the XT-DTS offers a new level of insight into previously unobtainable data collected in the harshest of environments.
The system can be configured and controlled remotely via a wireless or satellite link enabling remote data collection. It also contains a self-calibrating utility and on-board solid state storage.

The unit comes with four channels with a sampling resolution of only 25 centimetres and spatial resolution down to 60 centimetres over a measurement length of up to 10 kilometres. The XT-DTS™ has a minimum measurement time of 5 seconds. It achieves a temperature resolution that is better than 0.1oC at 5 km in less than 3 minutes. This temperature resolution can be further improved to 0.01oC by employing longer measurement intervals.

Dr Michael Mondanos, Vice President Industrial Applications, said: “Silixa has developed a powerful, ruggedised, remote logging tool that offers the established high standard of resolution, accuracy and reliability of our ULTIMA DTS, but over a class-leading temperature range. This pushes the limits of distributed fibre optic temperature sensing, opening up new deployment possibilities. The XT-DTS will enable effective asset optimization and environmental risk management even in previously inaccessible environments.”
