Tracerco re-brands its level measurement technology


World leading oil and gas service provider, Tracerco, part of Johnson Matthey Plc., has re-launched its award-winning LevelFinderPlus patented technology following a rebrand.

The breakthrough nucleonic instrument will now be known as Optimus™. The product uses propriety, unique processing algorithms to provide oil and gas companies with unparalleled insight into vessel operating conditions.

Optimus™, which won an Institute of Physics Award for Innovation at the end of 2013, is the first and only instrument to able to make accurate measurements of liquids in a vessel even in the presence of deposit build up and vapour density fluctuations.

Andy Hurst, managing director at Tracerco said, “The rationale for updating the name of our award-winning LevelFinderPlus instrument was to create a brand name that was both memorable and helped reflect the product’s fantastic array of customer benefits and features.”

The innovative technology is designed for liquid level and interface measurements as well as solids monitoring in a wide range of process vessels. It is suitable for the most challenging oil, chemical and petrochemical industry applications and provides accurate level measurement even in the presence of build-up and pressure changes without the need for any additional instruments.

Key benefits of Optimus™:

  • Reduced unplanned shutdowns
  • Improved product quality
  • Process optimisation
  • Operator confidence to increase production and maximise throughput
  • Monitor deposit build-up
  • Redundancy of measurement

Optimus™ is just one of many pioneering measurement instruments that Tracerco produces to aid the efficiency of production within the oil and gas industry.
