On the batch cut and products quality procedures in multi-product pipelines; Corte de interfaces e integridade de produtos em polidutos e terminais

Abstract

The increasing complexity in specifying the quality of petroleum products has a great impact on the way it is transported in pipelines so as to avoid degradation and contamination. This work aims to presenting a global and preliminary approach about the transport of petroleum products in batches in pipelines and in multi-product terminal lines towards its automation. Emphasis is placed on the batch formation and batch cut procedures, as well as on the features associated with the installation and instrumentation required to perform this task. The main factors responsible for increasing the mixing volume in batch transfers and for threatening the integrity of the products are highlighted. Several effective measures are pointed out to minimize the mixing volume generation. Among other benefits, they can promote reduction in the cost of transportation and in the amount of degraded products, simplified operational procedures and a minimum need for stocks to cope with its logistic.
