Oil, Gas, and Refining
This industry includes the global processes of exploration, extraction, refining, and transportation of petroleum products. It is usually divided into two major components: upstream and downstream.
REOTEMP manufactures a variety of pressure and temperature instruments, which are used in both upstream and downstream applications. This market is known for high pressure applications, which commonly produce process pressures of 10,000psi +. Diaphragm seals are often used to protect pressure instruments (pressure gauges, transmitters, & switches) from high pressures, pulsation, and corrosion. Remote capillary diaphragm seal assemblies are helpful in removing pressure instrumentation from high temperature processes or high vibration areas. For safety reasons, there is often a need for redundant process sensing. Typically one analog instrument will be mounted locally in the process and a second electronic signal will be sent back to the control room. REOTEMP’s Dual Mode Thermometer provides both a local indication and electronic output all in one unit. REOTEMP's new Hi-Vis pressure gauge dials are used in low light environments, which are often found in oil refineries or offshore rigs.
Common Application: Oil Refineries, Offshore Oil Rigs, Piping systems, Pipelines.
Power GenerationElectricity is usually generated at power plants by electromechanical generators, primarily driven by heat engines fueled by chemical combustion or by flowing water or wind. Energy can also be generated by solar photovoltaics and geothermal power.
Reotemp’s Thermocouples, RTD’s, and Bimetal thermometers are used in every corner of this industry. Power generation can create extreme process conditions including: high temperatures, high vibration, & shock. REOTEMP is often called upon to build custom temperature sensors for particularly harsh environments.
Weld pad thermocouples are common in this industry. REOTEMP offers a wide variety of weld pad styles, bends, and expansion loops. They are often used in boilers, and other piping applications.
Common Applications: Turbines, Generators, Transformers, Compressors, Boilers, Pumps, Piping systems, Furnace Systems.
Water/WastewaterWater treatment is the process of manipulating or cleaning water for a specific use. Typical uses include: water for drinking, industrial processes, medical use, wastewater treatment, and returning water to the environment.
The instrumentation REOTEMP provides to this industry is largely related to pressure. Process and industrial pressure gauges are by far the most common product sold in this market. Another common product is the annular diaphragm seal. Annular seals are used throughout wastewater treatment plants because of their non-clogging design and durable nature. REOTEMP provides new build annular seals and repairs old seal assemblies in a matter of days. REOTEMP is a Certified Red Valve Repair Facility. The All-Welded Seal Gauge (pressure gauge and diaphragm seal welded together) is another commonly used product in this market. Available with a Hastelloy lower which protects the gauge from chlorine service and other corrosive chemicals used in the treatment process.
Common Applications: Filters, Pumping stations, Piping Systems, Chemical Skids.
Food & Beverage
Food & BeverageThe Food & Beverage industry takes raw ingredients and processes them into products suitable for consumption by people or animals.
Temperature and pressure instrumentation is used throughout this industry. Applications that come into direct contact with food/beverage products are typically required to meet sanitary standards, such as “3A”. Other products, which don’t come into direct contact don’t require these certifications. Sanitary products are easily identified by their tri-clamp (or tri-clover) process connection. This connection is favored because it’s easily cleaned and sanitized during routine shut-downs, unlike the standard threaded connections. Sanitary pressure gauges, thermometers, RTD’s, and thermowells are found in just about every food and beverage processing plant you’ll find.
Common Applications: Filters, Piping systems, Boilers, Tank level.
BioTech/PharmaceuticalBiotechnology involves using living organisms in engineering, technology, medicine, and other useful applications. The pharmaceutical industry develops and produces drugs licensed for use as medications.
This industry is filled with dynamic customers who need custom solutions on a regular basis. Since San Diego has a large BioTech presence, REOTEMP has had the opportunity to design and manufacture a variety of innovative temperature and pressure sensors for local companies. Extremely low temperatures and high accuracy sensors are commonplace in this industry.
Composting is the process by which a collaboration of bugs, worms, and microorganisms breakdown organic material into nutrient rich finished compost. The finished compost is then used in a variety of applications including farming, landscaping, and gardening. Monitoring the temperature of a compost pile during the compost process is critical to maintaining a successful compost pile in which the material is broken down quickly. Temperature will also tell the operator or home composter when to turn the compost pile, add more material, add water, and when the compost is done.
REOTEMP has been in the composting industry for over 20 years. Supplying a variety of temperature probes, moisture meters, data loggers, and even wireless temperature monitoring systems. REOTEMP is a proud member of the U.S. Compost Council and sponsor of the International Compost Awareness Week. Compost products are sold to commercial composting facilities, municipalities, and residential composters throughout the U.S. and internationally.
