Quantitative loading system


The raw materials used in the petroleum and chemical industry are mostly liquid media, and so very strict requirements are placed on them in terms of measurement accuracy, safety, ease of operation and maintenance, as well as automation. To meet the increasingly higher requirements of users, Our Company has developed several load systems to meet the demand of different users.

    The KP2.0 intelligent ration loading control and management system developed by Shanghai Keypoint Controls Co., Ltd. is a completely new loading control and management system, which gets ride of the technical defects of previous loading systems. As an information-based intelligent liquid loading product integrating multiple technical innovations, the product is capable of measuring, controlling, processing and information-based management. In addition, it integrates cutting-edge hardware technologies, measuring technologies, software technologies, data application technologies and data management technologies, so it allows for accurate, safe, intelligent, and information-based application during the loading measurement process

1.Several advanced technologies are adopted for the system, which integrates functions like communication, control, safety protection, data management, authorization, and data mining, and is able to deliver complete loading measurement solutions for users.

2.The system is based on module hardware and standard software: through module-based design of the internal fittings of batch controller, the onsite core controlling device, the expandability and applicability of the system are both improved drastically. More fittings may be added according to the actual requirements of the onsite loading instrument, so as to achieve effective configuration, and meet the practical application requirements of customers. The software has a standard module design. Configuration of the software module is subject to the level of the user. This way, various control and management functions are realized.

3.The distributed loading network system: with distributed configuration of the entire loading system, the controllable failure rate and application range of the system are significantly increased. Power supply to the system could be cut off by only cutting the failure equipment from the corresponding distributed network. This way, the effective operation of other systems is guaranteed.

4.Several safety control measures: several safety mechanisms are provided in the onsite batch controllers and software operation system design. No action is to be executed without authorization. This way, safety of onsite workers and equipment, as well as the safety of data information, is ensured.

5.Information-based technology: the gigabit Ethernet is used for fast communication between the local control system and the remote information system, based on which the OCP, ERP and other information-based technologies are built, in an effort to bring more benefits to our customers. Then, data will be another effective profit point for enterprise management of the customers, and economic profit will be obtained from management itself.

6.Several advanced techniques: gas-phase recover, liquid-phase closing, bottom loading, current curve control and other advanced loading techniques are adopted, to ensure a safer, more accurate and more effective loading process.

7.Several advanced devices: the international edge-cutting devices, like the batch controller of the trading handing over level meeting the highest API level, the high-precision mass flowmeter of trading handing over level, numerical control valve, V-type regulating valve of high reliability, are used during loading process. This way, advanced equipment and technologies became the No. 1 productive force.

Data management & mining technology: as for information generated during loading process control, the modern software data management & mining technology is used to reveal its inner value, and to provide effective data support for production and operation of the enterprise. This aims to eliminate blind spots in previous operation and production site management of the enterprise.

Each loading arm position is equipped with an explosion-proof batch controller.

A high-precision electronic scale (optional).

A set of loading business station and software are provided in the loading business room. A set of operation station and its software are provided in the loading control room.

Software-based control

The control design of the entire system is the core of the system. Types of control include:

Onsite distributed control layer

The onsite distributed control layer mainly consists of the batch controller and other controllers within the loading area.

The batch controller is an intelligent instrument with single-chip micro-controller as the core, and it is capable of process control, ration control, anti-overflow and static electricity protection earthing linked control during the loading process. It is capable of temperature compensation and accumulation for the flow during liquid material loading.

The batch controller is connected with onsite instrument, and it executes the monitoring and loading control functions. During independent operation of the batch controller, operators could set, operate and monitor condition for loading on site. During networked operation, the batch controller connects with the management-level computer through the communication cable, for centralized real-time management of onsite information.

Onsite test execution instrument layer

Onsite instrument includes: mass flowmeter, stop valve (these two items are to be purchased by the buyer); V-type ball valve, oil overflow electrostatic protection, explosion-proof junction box, etc. The terminal automatic loading system needs the following onsite testing and execution instrument: flow meter, thermal resistor (used when the volume flow meter is used), loading control valve, static electricity protection earthing switch, anti-overflow liquid level switch, explosion-proof alarm indicator, flame-proof type non-contact IC card reader, high-precision electronic car scale, and high-precision electronic rail scale.

Upper computer management layer

The upper computer management layer involves the special loading management software provided for the industry-level computers.
