M+F and the sister companies of the J.H.K. Group are supporting Krailling Oils Development GmbH (KOD) in the further expansion of the Krailling bulk tank terminal
After KOD had first modernised loading facilities for road tankers for diesel fuels and heating oils in recent years, a further step is now in process of developing the tank farm into a full-range supplier for petrol stations. This will create a comprehensive, modern and future-oriented site in the south-west of Munich to secure the energy supply of the Munich metropolitan region. The tank farm is available as a competent partner to all interested companies in the field of petrol station supply and intermediate storage.
M+F and KOD signed a contract for the delivery, commissioning and calibration support of two complete "MOBOTOP" filling stations for simultaneous loading with diesel and gasoline in road tankers as well as several other individual filling stations for the storage and unloading of fuels in rail tank cars and for the supply of JET-A1 for Munich Airport.
In addition to the delivery of the custody transfer metering systems and MFX_4 flow computer, the order also includes the entire pipeline infrastructure with a total of approx. 6.000 m of pipelines in the nominal widths DN 100-DN250, pipe-road subways, a pipe bridge, additivation and heating oil marking systems as well as various accessories. The gasoline handling facilities are connected to a so-called Vapor Recovery Unit VRU by means of vapour recovery and thus meet the highest requirements in accordance with applicable European/German environmental protection requirements.
All newly added plant areas will be integrated into the tank farm management system COTAS® already installed on site, thus enabling all loading and unloading tasks to be carried out cost-efficiently and safely. The expected duration of the project is one year.

M+F supplies TPC leak detection system
Tight Pipe Check (TPC) is a powerful equipment for checking the leak-tightness of pressurised pipe systems. It is based on the well known Pressure-Step Method which has been further developed and improved. Appliance of TPC allows for the detection of extremely small leaks . The M+F TPC system for the detection of chronic leaks is to be used for an underground transfer pipeline between two plant sections of a refinery.
The pipeline has a length of 4,070 m and a nominal diameter of DN300. There are two river crossings in the route and a section that is conventionally laid underground. In addition, the above-ground sections of the pipeline will be heated.
The tightness test is carried out when the pipeline is at a standstill between two closed valves, which must be technically tight. The pipeline must be under pressure and be completely filled with liquid at anytime and anywhere. Due to the different media and operating conditions it is necessary to design the TPC system for the special requirements.
M+F will design and supply a test skid with a storage tank, DBB valves, a pump with frequency converter, other valves, field devices for the EMSR technology as well as the TPC software.
Second summit in Cairo
The second summit "The future of Terminal Automation starts - NOW" had been held in Cairo on August, 7./8., 2019. Delegates from several national oil companies and EPC contractors of the region joined the venue. M+F Technologies in association with Timm Elektronik, the local partners IAC Petrol and ECGS, presented their latest developments in the field of electronics and software. New handheld and mobile device-based applications and services had been explained and discussed with the audience. The first day was filled up with intense presentations while the second day was used to discuss current and upcomming projects in the region. M+F would like to thank all attendees for their time and interest.

The future of Terminal Automation starts - NOW
With the attendance of numerous delegates from almost all domestic major oil and gas companies and the Royal Army we held our first 2 day summit in Morocco. During the first day our specialists gave a detailled overview about the current status of the State of the Art Terminal Management and future planned developments. From compact metering skids with superb accuracy and reliabilty to flexible and transparent flow computing systems, from single Terminal Automation to cloud based networks with integrated smart devices - all aspects of modern technology had been explained and discussed with the auditory. The second day was dedicated to workgroup discussions to talk in detail about pending and future projects.
We thank all our participants for this memorable event.
If you would also like to know more details about our technologies and solutions, just send us an email to email@example.com or join us at the upcomming STOCEXPO Europe exhibition in Rotterdam.
50th company anniversary of M+F
On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, M+F invited all customers and interested parties to a special in-house exhibition on Thursday, November 29th, 2018.
After the welcome by the managing directors Julius Kramer and Oliver von Seggern, our customers, business partners and suppliers had the opportunity to attend various presentations. The proven terminal automation management system COTAS with the planned web services and mobile applications as well as the latest developments of the MFX_4 family were presented.
The function of the pressure and calibration test benches was demonstrated in the workshop, including the newly developed TPC leakage detection system.
Afterwards, there was an opportunity to get to know each other and for lively conversations in a convivial atmosphere.
Some visitors even had to travel a considerable distance, e.g. from Finland, Romania or Portugal, to attend the in-house exhibition.
All in all, it was a successful event in a relaxed atmosphere, which provided interesting insights for visitors and employees.
We would like to thank all visitors for coming and our colleagues for organising this successful day.

M+F delivers 18 Metering Skids at Misr Petroleum in Egypt
In 2015, Misr Petroleum took the decision to establish new Petroleum depot. Together with Petrojet as the main EPC, they started to design the new terminal for 18 skids in Badr City, based on state-of-the-art technologies, replacing old flow measuring technology Positive Displacement with Coriolis Mass Flow measurement, implementing advanced flow computers, and complete terminal automation. After having many companies bidding, M+F Technologies GmbH was awarded this project in February 2016. M+F is a German based solution provider specialized in offering complete systems for loading stations and metering systems. They have more than 30 years of experience delivering loading solutions all over the world and more than 18,000 installation of its flow computer MFX_4. At the core of any metering system is the flow meter. M+F chose the Coriolis Mass flow meter OPTIMASS 6400 from KROHNE Messtechnik GmbH because KROHNE has tremendous experience in manufacturing Coriolis flow meters since the 80s, one of the very few companies that can meet the challenging requirement of liquid flow accuracy (±0.05% of measured value) and repeatability, and with competitive price. Through international cooperation between M+F and KROHNE, IAC (M+F representative in Egypt) and RMS Engineering (KROHNE representative in Egypt), a special tailored system was developed. The 18 skids were constructed in Hamburg, Germany. Factory acceptance test was held on July 2016 testing the system under different non-ideal situations. Overall uncertainty of the system was even better than the requested uncertainty in Misr Petroleum tender. The 18 metering systems are currently installed at Misr Petroleum new terminal in Badr. Petrojet is finishing other site construction and it is expected that terminals will be into operation by mid of 2017.
