The young year of 2019 has been a year of transition and change. I am sad to announce that another industry comrade and very dear friend to me and my company, passed on January 14.
Natural Gas Measurement, Underground Utilities and More Blog
We provide insights on natural gas measurement, underground utility damage prevention, utility contractor services and various natural gas products. Formerly the Linc Energy Blog.
With the new year, my company enters its 29th year in business, and I'm reminded of the passing of Mr. Dick Hannan, formerly of Mercury Instruments, who had a significant influence on my life and my company.
While smelling natural gas is the first warning that there is a gas leak, it is not foolproof. Here are reasons you may NOT smell the odorant in gas during a gas leak.
Linc Energy Systems is now a distributor for Footage Tools, the manufacturer of Big Shot pneumatic piercing tools, manual and hydraulic squeeze-off tools and PE pipe pullers.
Keeping in mind that accurate measurement begins with selecting the correct technology for any application, here are four steps to consider when choosing a natural gas flow meter with a flow meter comparison, and selection guide.
GAZOMAT™ has introduced a new telescoping rod which permits the Inspectra Laser to sample just about any field configuration, making the methane gas leak detector even more powerful.
In wrapping up our series on natural gas flow meters, there is one last meter-type worthy of mention, the rotameter. The rotameter is a traditional gas technology and may be used as an industrial flow meter to measure the volumetric flow rate of fluids in a closed tube. It is a variable area meter and provides a simple, precise, and inexpensive indication of flow rates.
What are the common water meter types? Water metering is the measurement of water consumption and performed in residential, commercial, and industrial applications. Linc Energy Systems is a distributor for Carlon Meter; offering residential water meters and industrial water flow meters.
Linc Energy Systems is now a distributor for the Itron OpenWay Riva Intelis residential ultrasonic gas meter. The Intelis revolutionary design shifts the gas distribution network from being a one-way gas delivery mechanism to an interactive energy network that delivers gas more safely and efficiently.
Continuing our series on gas flow meter types, here we discuss differential pressure flow meters (DP meter), which are inferential meters and include the orifice plate, Pitot tube, Venturi meter, and V-Cone meters.
Continuing our series on gas flow meters, in part two of velocity flow meters we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of ultrasonic flowmeters. As a refresher, three velocity type meters measure natural gas; they are turbine meters, ultrasonic meters, and vortex meters.
There are three velocity meter types that measure natural gas, they are turbine meters, ultrasonic meters, and vortex meters. This article discusses turbine flow meters, and subsequent blogs will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the other velocity meters.
Honeywell Mercury Instruments alerted its North American Channel Partners that the mobile network providers are sunsetting 2G/3G CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) devices soon. While the shutdown dates vary depending on the carrier, it is time to assess your equipment and determine if new modems or instruments will be needed for your natural gas smart metering programs.
The positive displacement or PD meter is considered being a traditional gas technology, and even in the face of new technologies, the rotary meter, and diaphragm gas meter, are still widely used for utility billing applications or custody transfer of natural gas.
As part of our continuing series on gas flow meters, here we discuss those meters that directly measure mass flow, specifically Coriolis, and thermal mass flow meters.
Continuing my "Back to Basics" series, I thought I would address sizing natural gas regulators.
