Silixa’s MiDAS flow meter enables production allocation and process monitoring on well pads, separators and flow lines.
The MiDAS flow meter, which is based on the intelligent Distributed Acoustic Sensor (iDAS™), uses optical fibre attached to the exterior of a pipe to enable real-time and continuous monitoring of flow and composition within the pipe.
The system operates on pipe diameters from 2” upwards. It is bi-directional, non-intrusive and passive, with no power requirements at the sensing point.
- Flexible architecture means that up to 10 measurement stations can be linked in series using a single sensing fibre and a single acquisition system
- Sensor is entirely optical, and does not require electrical power at the measurement stations
- Non-intrusive and easy to install
- System can be retrofit to flowing pipes under cold work permit
