Emerson Process Management announces the release of a new injection control application designed for the FloBoss 107 flow computer and ROC800-Series remote operations controller.
Emerson’s new injection control application helps the flow computer and remote terminal units to accurately measure and control water or steam delivered to injection wells, lowering installation costs, improving control and offering superior visibility to configuration, status and history.
The injection controller application replaces PLC programming with a simple, configurable interface, helping to reduce commissioning effort and cost.
When flow is measured and controlled at an injection manifold, the ROC800 can support multiple injection streams. An integral wireless gateway allows remote wellhead pressure measurements to be easily incorporated in the control scheme. Alternatively, the FloBoss 107 measures and controls flow at the wellhead.
A configurable dual objective control feature in the application fulfils common injection control requirements such as flow rate target with wellhead pressure override, while also facilitating complex control strategies.
The SCADA-ready injection control application supports multiple streams. The FloBoss 107 supports up to four streams while the ROC800 supports up to 25 streams. The application accumulates hourly, daily, and monthly values for all parameters on each flow stream with the values of the flow stream retained in the controllers for up to 35 days. These features give superior visibility to injection configuration, status and history.
