Over 1,000 ABB RTDs (Resistant Thermometer Devices) are to be used in the world's most northerly liquefied natural gas facility. Supplied for Statoil's Snohvit project, the first offshore development in the Barents Sea, the RTDs will be used for measurement of process temperatures, loading and offloading monitoring, spill detection and environmental protection. Built at ABB's plant in Workington in the UK, the full assembly thermometers feature solid drilled flanged thermowells and transmitters with HART communications and display. The thermometers incorporate stainless steel heads, providing an uncoated corrosion-resistant enclosure, with a window for the display. A special feature included the supply of 25 metre long probes to prevent freezing of bedrock under the four main storage tanks at the Melkoya LNG facility.
