Operating panel allows control

Published:  08 August, 2014

smith_flow_control.jpgSMITH FLOW CONTROL (SFC) has designed a specialist pigging panel to be installed on an FPSO built for use in the Goliat field, the first oilfield to be developed in the Barents Sea.

SFC says the custom-built pigging panels will be used to control a series of actuated valves and ensure the safe opening of the pig vessel closure door. The panel itself is said to be designed and built to exacting standards which incorporates the strict environmental requirements stipulated for operations in the Barents Sea. The stainless steel electronic panel, specifically engineered for Arctic conditions, conforms to Zone 1 Ex de classification and protection class IP66. It is designed to support applications in the most aggressive environments, suitable for temperatures ranging between -40 to +55 degrees Celsius (-40 to +131 degrees Fahrenheit) with an anti-reflective coating that eliminates glare from the sun.
