Silixa to present on Carina Engineered Fibre Optic Sensing System in London on 5 December 2017

Garth Naldrett, Silixa’s Chief Product Officer, will be presenting the Carina Engineered Fibre Optic Sensing System and the use of this for production profiling at the SEAFOM Industry event in London on the 5th of December 2017.

He will present case studies of measurements made with the Carina® Sensing System, and will demonstrate the opportunities presented by this technology for production flow analysis. Garth will also discuss how the combination of Carina and high resolution distributed temperature sensing can be used to interpret and constrain production flow models.

SEAFOM is an international Joint Industry Forum that promotes the growth of fiber optics in subsea as well as other upstream oil and gas applications.

Silixa to present on non-intrusive process metering at the Mines and Technology Show in London on 29 November 2017

What if you could meter every flow in your mine or plant? Silixa’s non-intrusive process metering product makes it possible to meter many process flows continuously using only a single, extended length of optical sensing fibre. Recent case studies demonstrate how this technology can be installed throughout a plant, without any disruption to ongoing operations, on slurry, water and gas process pipes.

Daniel Finfer’s presentation (BDM – Process Metering) at the Mines and Technology Show will focus on the sensing method as well as its application for multizone process flow metering. Revealing the details of a successful process flow metering job at an operating minewater treatment plant, he will demonstrate how this technology can be used to enable process control optimisation.

The Mines and Technology Show provides a forum for senior decision makers from mining companies and technology providers to lean about the latest technologies and exchange ideas on how their implementation can enhance productivity and improve cost management.

Silixa is raising money for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity

The Silixa team are raising money for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, a charity which ensures that nurses, doctors and research teams can provide the very best care to patients and develop life-saving treatments to be used around the world.

We lost our Commercial Director, Mick Longton, to cancer in October 2017. We would like to celebrate his life, pay tribute to his accomplishments and keep his memory alive by supporting this charity that funds state-of-the-art equipment and ground-breaking research to improve the lives of people affected by cancer.

To help us make a difference please donate HERE.

The Cutting Edge of Fibre Optics: Temperature and Acoustic Applications in Earth Science – workshop

Silixa will be participating in a two-day hands-on workshop on the theory, application and analysis of distributed fibre optic sensing at Nasa’s Stennis Space Center in Mississippi, USA on 9-10 December 2017.

The workshop is organized by the Center for Transformative Environmental Monitoring Programs, CTEMPs, an organization that promotes field-deployable high-precision fiber optic temperature measurement systems, wireless self-organizing multi-parameter sensor stations, and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) primarily to researchers to find new ways to implement these technologies in earth sciences. Experiment designs, installations, and data analysis is supported by a staff of scientists.

CTEMPs has been providing distributed temperature sensor training for years, but this year they are expanding the scope of the workshop to distributed acoustic sensing as well. Participants will have the opportunity to work directly with Silixa’s intelligent Distributed Acoustic Sensor (iDAS) and XT-DTS, the ruggedized distributed temperature sensor for extreme environments.

Examples will be taken from passive and active DTS applications, active and passive seismic monitoring, and acoustic monitoring in pipes.
