Invensys Introduces New CTS System for LNG Carriers

Thursday, December 01, 2005
Invensys Process Systems announced that its next-generation Foxboro custody transfer system (CTS) for LNG carriers has been certified by NKKK (Nippon Kaiji Kentei Kyokai) of Japan. The Foxboro Custody Transfer System Reference V for LNG carriers is based on a new non-contact pulsed laser technology that is designed to combine the accuracy of traditional capacitive-based systems with the lower total cost of ownership of non-intrusive radar-based level measurement systems. The system is also designed to provide the high accuracy measurements and data logging of levels, temperatures, and pressures required for the calculation of total LNG cargo loaded or discharged. The data is then converted to volumetric measurement. The CTS will be sold and supported through Invensys Process Systems' Global LNG Business and Technology Centre.
