Agar Corporations

Interface Detectors, Oil/Water Meters, Multiphase Flow Meters & Hydrate Detectors

Development, design, and manufacture of multiphase flow meters (MPFMs), oil/water meters, interface, emulsion & foam detectors, and hydrate detectors. Our solutions increase the efficiency of oil production and processing in applications such as heavy oil well testing, waste water treatment, automatic tank dewatering, desalters, emulsion & foam control, and hydrate detection where hydrocarbons and aqueous mixtures are present

Interface Detectors

The ID-200 Series Interface Detectors are used for interface measurement and control in all types of liquid/liquid and vapor/liquid separation processes including emulsions and foam.

A wide range of models, process connections, and output options are available for the control of a variety of process installations such as Tanks, Decanters, Dehydrators, Desalters, Coalescers, etc. The ID-200 Series advanced control capabilities can be used to automate upset responses, antifoam and demulsifier chemical feed systems, and eliminate cross-contamination of separating phases.

Oil/Water Meters

Agar’s OW-200 series is a second-generation design, microwave based liquid/liquid analyzer developed by Agar Corporation after introducing the first 0-100% oil/water meter to the market in 1985. Our current design is the only device in which the accuracy of the measurement is not affected by changes in salinity, density, viscosity, temperature or velocity of the components being analyzed.


  • Crude Oil and finished pipeline monitoring
  • Oil in wastewater
  • Glycol and water
  • Aqueous/organic measurement

Multiphase Flow Meters

The AGAR MPFM is a non-nuclear, versatile, three-phase flow meter designed for true field conditions. It provides accurate, real-time measurements of oil, water and gas flows simultaneously without separation of the phases. Specially designed for low maintenance and ease of operation, they require no field calibration or prior knowledge of fluid properties (such as fluid density and salinity) to attain the specified accuracies. The real-time data capabilities of these meters allow for optimization of all types of critical production enhancement techniques.

Advantages of the Agar MPFM-50 series:

  • Gas void fraction 0-100%
  • Water-cut 0-100%
  • Not affected by flow regimes
  • High accuracy, real-time flow measurement
  • High and low viscosities
  • No nuclear (radioactive) sources
  • Compact, portable, and easy to transport and install
  • Wet gas application

Hydrate Detectors

easurement of the water-cut and hydrate presence is performed by measuring the complex permittivity properties of the flow stream using the multiple high frequency method. This method will compensate for the effected of changing hydrocarbon composition and water salinity while providing two unique outputs, one for water cut, the second for hydrate concentration.

The presence of hydrates, within a pipeline, can severely impair fluid flow and requires regular pigging. Low Dosage Hydrate Inhibitor (LDHI) or methanol injection is used to minimize hydrate formation. By detecting the presence of hydrates, LDHI or methanol injection can be optimized

Types of Level Measurement tools – radar, TDR, ultrasonic, thruwall, hydrostatic, plumbob, bypass and foam.

Types of Level Switches – Float, rotary paddle, capacitance, admittance, vibrating probes of solids, tuning forks for liquids, microwave, foam and conductivity.

SILO Protection – a pneumatic conveying operation is necessary to prevent over-pressurization or over-filling. The pressure sensor, level sensor and the pressure relief valve alert on likely danger and ultimately provide relief of dangerous pressure. Monitoring the level and pressure allow other control functions to be activated such as:

  • High level alarm
  • High pressure alarm
  • Tanker fill pipe shut-off
  • Activate filter alarms
  • Alarm on a PRV event pressure
  • Provide filter blockage information
  • Provide valuable preventive maintenance info
  • Record the number of high pressure events
  • Record the number of PRV lifts
  • Record the number of near miss events

Sensor Technology

Torque Sensors

Sensor Technology Ltd was initially set up in a converted water mill in the Cotswolds, from 1976 until 2004, when commercial functions moved to Heyford Park near Bicester. Heyford Park was just off the M40 motorway, which was great, and we were next door to a sister company.

However, growth of TorqSense sales and the launch of LoadSense and HeliNav encouraged the directors to reassess. Therefore in 2009 we moved all departments together into one building at Apollo Park in Wroxton. Considerably more space has been allocated to manufacturing, calibration, test, packaging and dispatch than was available at Heyford. Above all, open plan offices will ensure efficient communications between the various departments. A dedicated conference suite will make meetings more comfortable.
