Someone once suggested that I use an attitude of gratitude in business and watch what happens.

Providing an outlet to voice thoughts on bridging fossil fuels, like natural gas to alternative energy.
In the business world the term success conjures up images of inflated bottom lines, awards and recognition from professional associations, and new toys and assets acquired from escalating income. While all this is fine, at this point in my life, I’ve been looking for the deeper meaning of success.
Recently Sage Metering released a white paper discussing an improved method for measuring flare gas flow using thermal mass flow meters. The new paper explores flow meter challenges and using thermal flow meters in applications of biogas, landfill gas and natural gas, and even discusses refineries and chemical plants.
For three years I’ve written posts to introduce new principals; I thought it was time to introduce my company. Linc Energy Systems is a manufacturers’ representative, distributor and contractor. We specialize in measurement and control, damage prevention and offer a wide line of industrial gas products to the natural gas industry, as well as industrial, commercial and government entities serving the same and related markets.
According to the Midwest Energy Association (formerly the Midwest Gas Association) it’s time for change. The long remembered gas trade show we looked forward to attending every year in Ames, Iowa has changed its venue and has moved to Rochester, Minnesota.
If you think it takes courage to bike 155 miles of Colorado’s most challenging mountain roads in three days, you don’t know what courage is. While the Courage Classic may be a fundraiser for Children’s Hospital Colorado, the patients being treated are the ones demonstrating real courage.
The 2013 Wyoming Safety & Workforce Summit will be held June 25-26 in Rock Springs, WY at the Western Wyoming Community College. The focus of this year’s event will be workforce development and workplace safety.
When sizing an Itron natural gas regulator there are six factors needed to be considered to select the most suitable regulator for your application; including location to adjust for the effects of altitude.
A bit reminiscent of the “New Coke” product introduction, then returning “Coke Classic” to market only months later, after a 15 year hiatus Itron is bringing back a classic residential gas meter design to augment their product offerings.
Natural gas measurement has been driven by the industries need to produce more accurate instruments, and volume correction is a process of taking a gas meter’s uncorrected volume and converting it to corrected volume based upon the effects of temperature and pressure.
Natural gas meter evolution has been led by consumer need, our understanding of gas laws, and the need to increase the accuracy of measurement. From counting lamp lights to compensating for pressure and temperature, accuracy has been the driving force behind improving and designing new meter types.
For any natural gas flow measurement instrument to provide accurate gas flow, gas laws must be considered, including: Boyle’s Law, Charles’ Law, Avogadro’s Law, Gay-Lussac's Law, Combined Gas Law and the Ideal Gas Law. By doing so, we can see how temperature, pressure and volume, impact gas instrumentation.
