World Pipelines MegChem Case Study

Article: Published Case Study - Crude Pipeline Surge Analysis uses AFT Fathom and AFT Impulse: Safety Issues Revealed and Resolved

Colorado Springs, Colo., USA -- June 20, 2020 -- The June issue of World Pipelines Magazine features an AFT Case Study from MegChem, located in South Africa. Bernard Muller, Principal Process Engineer with MegChem, entered the project into the AFT Platinum Pipe Award content and won in the Most Interesting Model category. 

The project focuses on Muller's assistance to a client who was looking to upgrade to a tank farm where an existing pipeline transported crude from storage tanks to a refinery. As part of the upgrade, Motor Operated Valves (MOVs) were installed on the destination storage tank inlets to assist with overfill protection. The closure of these control valves could cause pressure surge. See how Muller used both AFT Fathom and AFT Impulse to determine pressures and learn what he found through utilizing software features and additional analysis.
