AUSTIN, Texas, October 15, 2021 / PRNewswire / – JP3 Measurement, LLC (“JP3”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Flotek Industries, Inc. (NYSE: FTK) today announced the launch of AIDA, a revolutionary new patent application for its verax rangeMT near infrared real-time analyzers. Short for Automated Interface Detection Algorithm, the AIDA application provides real-time detection of interfaces in a pipeline of liquids. Quickly deployable on VeraxMT analyzers without the need for additional sampling or chemometric modeling, the AIDA app can identify products such as refined fuels, crude and NGLs thanks to its advanced machine learning algorithms that detect interfaces in 60 seconds. This allows operators to cut batches quickly and accurately, reduce the mixing of two separate products (called “transmixes”), and minimize out-of-specification products that require downgrading.

“The AIDA app is a game-changer in transporting multiple commodities in a common pipeline,” said TengBeng Koid, president of JP3. “The rapid identification of batch interfaces allows operators to significantly reduce product downgrades and transmix and therefore increase their profit margins. It can also reduce their carbon footprint, as a reduction in the transmix means less energy is needed to transport and reprocess the transmix, thus improving their ESG dashboard. “

The AIDA application is compatible with all JP3 VeraxMT analyzers. VeraxMT Analyzers can measure hydrocarbon composition, vapor pressure, boiling point, flash point, API density, and other physical properties within seconds. VeraxMT analyzers have no moving parts, no consumables, and no sample conditioning system, which extends system life and lowers maintenance costs.
