Unlike traditional proportional or even PID control that require a varying output to a modulating control device, time-proportional control can achieve a proportional control response to process variation using an on/off device by varying on and off times in a defined control period.

An oil production company was having problems with the freshwater flow lines freezing up in the vertical sections that go through the permafrost layer. All of the frozen lines stemmed from the self-regulating heat trace cable they were using which kept burning out. It would short out at the bend required to fit it down inside the 1” thermowell pipe. The secondary problem was the lack of sufficient heat output when self-regulating heat trace is folded back on itself. With each failure came thousands of dollars in lost production, down time, labor and materials to thaw the line.

Valin was approached by a company that purchases natural gas direct from the pipeline, processes it and transports it to CNG filling stations throughout California. They wanted a portable metering system which would allow them to confirm the mass quantities and chemical composition of the natural gas they were purchasing from the pipeline. Valin’s technical specialists designed a portable metering skid that would fulfill the customer’s needs and provided diagrams, drawings, and control schematics.
