BS&W Troubleshooting Services

Crude oil is sold on the basis of temperature, API Gravity, and the BS&W content so it is very important to have accurate measurements of the amount of water and sediment in your product stream. The quality of oil is measured by a BS&W probe.  The probe measures the free water, sediment, and emulsion in the oil as a volume percentage of the production stream.  The probe detects entrained water content by measuring its capacitance reactance and comparing it to the dielectric (degree of conductivity) constant of oil.  Typically the probes are set up to read 0-3% water content and can generally measure that value within +/- 0.05% - 0.25%.  The probe range is dependent on the instrument itself and the operating conditions and are capable of providing continuous measurement.
