Following the success of the reliable and popular HYDROlog 2000 hydrotest logger, Aquatec Group is proud to announce the launch of the next generation of hydrotest monitoring equipment – HYDRO 3000. At the core of this new range is the HYDROlog 3000PT instrument – a compact logger measuring test pressure to 1000bar and ambient temperature. The integral pressure sensor meets the new more stringent DNV-OS-F101 testing specification, with ±0.05%FS accuracy and ±0.01%FS precision. New features include enhanced memory and faster downloads. With increasingly stringent lithium battery shipping regulations, the HYDROlog 3000 overcomes potential transport issues by using standard field-replaceable batteries available across the world. Users can choose the type of battery most suitable for each deployment, whether alkaline, lithium or rechargeable.
The HYDROlog3000PT is available in two additional models - one measuring gauge pressure, and one measuring two test pressures in a compact and efficiently designed instrument. Aquatec also introduces the HYDROlog 3000F, a flow monitoring logger with additional test pressure and ambient temperature sensors. The family of data loggers all feature the intuitive AQUAtalk software and self-contained compact design, and are compatible with the new higher speed AQUAmodem Op2 optical modem.
The HYDRO 3000 range also includes the HYDROskid 3000, a compact monitoring skid with everything needed to successfully monitor a hydrotest. Featured within are the new HYDROlog 3000PT, faster AQUAmodem Op2 and updated AQUAdisp subsea display. These same components are available separately, or in compact mini-manifolds for ease of transport in baskets or incorporation into other structures. The new instruments are complemented by the existing HYDROgauge digital gauge, which features the same high specification sensor.
The range is completed by the introduction of deck versions of the HYDROlog3000PT and HYDROlog3000F, allowing surface training and testing to be completed with ease, as well as making onshore hydrotesting cost-effective and efficient. The units are built into durable cases, with an optional integrated tablet, removing the need for a separate PC.
Andy Smerdon, Managing Director, said ‘This new range combines over 10 years’ experience in hydrotest monitoring instrumentation with new innovative technologies to produce an integrated family of instruments and systems, designed to improve and speed up operations.’
