LACT Units and Custody Transfer Solutions

Valin LACT Units Deliver High Accuracy Measurement from Wellhead to Pipeline

LACT Units

LACT Units Give Liquid Meters Accuracy Rates of .25 percent or Better

Precision measurement expertise is one of the most important parts of transferring oil from a producing oil field into the oil pipeline, truck or other oil transport method.  Precise measurement is absolutely critical. Water or natural gas content is not allowed in the saleable oil stream.

This measurement is generally done through two common methods: gauging and liquid metering.  Due to a number of inconveniences and inaccuracies associated with gauging, liquid metering is regarded as the most efficient method and utilized by almost all new applications.

With the aid of additional components, the liquid meter is capable of unattended measurement at accuracy rates of 0.25 percent or better.  This measurement system is known as a Lease Automatic Custody Transfer (LACT) Unit, and offers a true Custody Transfer solution.

The benefit of utilizing unattended measurement versus manual measurement is not just in the accuracy, but in safety as well. Climbing ladders and opening storage tanks is a severe safety hazard!
