Self Contained and Environmentally Conscious

Solar panels provide an environmentally friendly, independent, and reliable power supply. All data is transmitted wirelessly, further expanding the stand alone nature of the system.

User Friendly

Complete turn-key system provides a user friendly interface, fully compatible with automatic call-out systems. The IMELDA system can also be accessed remotely by any computer as long as the user has the required encryption password.

Specifications
Temperature variation has always been a factor in maintaining the collection of accurate data from any electronic sensor. One key element of the IMELDA system is the temperature compensation. PIT has developed a clamping fixture that assures the temperature at each pressure transducer remains consistent. Based on factory tested criteria, with the media being measured, the clamping fixture for the pipe will radiate the heat of the process medium up to the pressure transducers.

A common problem with any pressure measuring device, be it a simple pressure gauge or an electronic transducer, is plugging up from the contaminants or freezing off in subzero temperatures. The IMELDA pressure measuring unit incorporates a unique and proprietary Isolation Gland, which isolates the pressure transducer from the process media. The problem with any highly sensitive transducer is that they can be destroyed by any contaminate that gets inside of them. In an effort to protect these sensors/transducers, filters (snubbers) are often installed between the process liquid and the transducer. These filters are a very fine mesh that will become rapidly plugged because of rust, dirt, and any other contaminates inherent in any pipeline. As these filters get plugged up by contaminates, the pressure transducer in any system will be rendered useless and the computer will read no changes in the pipeline pressure.

The Rapid Drop Plunger

pdfdwn-a-64 Designed to fall at high speeds, similar to a PaceMaker, but does not require as much flow time at surface to separate a secondary piece.  This tool is designed as an intermediate step between PaceMaker candidate wells and Conventional Plunger candidiate wells. The Rapid Drop Plunger requires no additional equipment on surface to adapt the well for this application and can run in wells with existing subsurface equipment. These plungers are built with heat treated steel.  It is recommended that the Bottom Hole Spring have a spring rate of at least 300lbs per inch to handle dry landings.
