ROSEN has launched a revolutionary Cleaning Analysis Service (CAS) solution to provide consumers with valuable data that improves duct efficiency, minimizes risks and increases operational success. The solution´s objective is to leverage the often-overlooked information that can be gained by analyzing data from pipeline cleaning operations.

“ROSEN’s Cleaning Analytics Service brings your cleaning activities to the next level. Do not waste your time searching for cleaning results stored somewhere in project folders. Instead, access the data wherever and whenever you want. Be sure that no information gets lost. Base your decisions regarding cleaning campaigns on relevant data and meaningful key performance indicators (KPIs). Experience progress in action as we bring traditional processes into the 21st century and adapt to the future,” said Johannes Spille, Industrial Engineer at ROSEN.

Pipeline cleaning operations are critical to ensure high performance and minimize the risk of deposit buildup. ROSEN said that with each cleaning, information can be retrieved on the nature of the debris removed and the condition of the cleaning tool. This information can later be used to obtain insights on its efficiency, the nature of the pipe contents, bore restrictions and its condition for intelligent in-line inspection. However, most companies do not take advantage of this information. In response to this problem, ROSEN has created CAS, a comprehensive solution that collects, processes and analyzes cleaning data.

CAS has revolutionized cleanup programs by incorporating three main components: data capture; data storage, visualization and reporting; and data analysis, said Spille.

Data Capture

The company offers the ESRI ArcGIS Survey123 app that simplifies the data capture process and can be used with any iOS or Android device. The app features questionnaires with drop-down response menus that seek to capture and store all relevant data at the launcher and receiver of the pipeline.

At the launcher, key information collected includes the run objective, cleaning tool configuration, images of the cleaning tool and pipe operating conditions. The receiver information includes cleaning tool status, images of the cleaning tool and receiver after opening the trap door, and the type and amount of debris.

The collection of this information prompts the feasibility of a planned in-line inspection (ILI), the general condition of the pipeline and, when used over time, can also guide the cleaning program. If consumers are looking to collect more detailed information, the ROSEN Pipeline Data Logger (PDL) allows a deeper analysis on issues like pressure, temperature, media, velocity, differential pressure and acceleration.

Data Storage, Visualization and Reporting

No internet connection is required to capture data using the application. Once the network is available, all collected data can be uploaded to the ROSEN Online Repository, considered very fast and which allows users to access key data through unique user credentials, protecting the information from unapproved access.

In the Online Repository, data is presented in a dashboard, organized by asset, date and time, allowing in-depth investigation of each run. In addition to storage, the Online Repository allows the creation of graphs and charts to picture key data, such as cup/disc wear, debris type, debris quantity, and basic geographic information about the location of the pipeline.

By using the cleaning solution, reports are automatically generated, containing all relevant information. In addition, users can download copies of the data, tables, graphs and raw data in Excel files.

Data Analysis

Having all key data available and organized allows companies to identify trends and optimization options. In addition, it helps guide flow assurance modeling on issues that include using the right cleaning tools, ensuring that performance is not affected by debris, and optimizing a cleaning/maintenance schedule. These analyses can be performed by ROSEN experts or by the company itself.

The CAS solution is presented in two levels: Level 1 - Basic Evaluation and Level 2 - Enhanced Evaluation. Basic Evaluation is used for data such as pipe operating conditions, trap conditions, tool configuration, tool condition, debris type and volume, cup/disc wear, caliper plate measurements and photography. The database allows users to have an overview of the executions carried out, allowing conclusions to be drawn.

Meanwhile, Enhanced Assessment, allows the PDL to be used, aimed at capturing more detailed information, such as differential pressure in the pipe, flow velocities, temperature profile and tool rotation. Subsequently, ROSEN experts analyze this data and identify trends, assessing efficiency and providing recommendations.

ROSEN is undoubtedly the future of cleaning programs, since it ensures users will never again lose information, improves efficiency and effectiveness and increases the success of the first run. “It makes it possible to identify optimization needs and enables users to make the right decisions on cleaning tool configuration and cleaning campaigns. This will ultimately improve throughput, cleaning efficiency and effectiveness,” said ROSEN.
