AUSTIN, Texas – BP Exploration has installed Emerson’s Rosemount 5300 Series guided wave radar (GWR) transmitters on an FPSO operating offshore West Africa.

Emerson says the signal-processing technology ensures detection of low dielectric fluids, and enables the Rosemount GWR to send and receive a cleaner, stronger signal. This allows the use of single-lead probes that increase tolerance to solids build-up and coating, and eliminate trips due to false readings.

The company claims the transmitters have helped BP Exploration increase safety, reduce shutdowns, and increase production.
