Distributed Temperature Sensor
October 28, 2011
The DTSX200 Distributed Temperature Sensor (DTS) from Yokogawa Electric Corporation is used to monitor temperature and flow in Oil/Gas Upstream unconventional and conventional in-well applications, LNG and Refinery Tank and Pipeline leak detection, Fire Detection and other thermal monitoring applications. With the DTSX200, Yokogawa has developed a product for control applications that uses the optical measurement technologies it acquired over the years in the measurement field. This product can be used at extreme temperature environments — like desert and arctic locations — and in on-shore and offshore applications. The DTSX200 helps improve production efficiency by working together with production control systems, according to the manufacturer.
