One section of the eBook discusses the evolution of composites. From ancient civilizations to present day polymer science, composites play a fundamental role in protecting equipment, property, and people.
Natural gas in its original form is odorless and combustible. Odorization, or to odorize, is adding an odorant, such as mercaptan to gas is undeniably the most important stage in gas operations. This step offers the first line of defense when natural gas is present as it permits a person to smell the mercaptan, that rotten egg smell, and respond.
There are some parameters needed to size a natural gas regulator properly to recommend the right unit for an application. This is true, no matter the brand, whether Itron, Emerson, Maxitrol or Belgas. While there are automated sizing programs available on the internet, until these apps are unfailing, I still do it the old-fashioned way. Call me old school, but it allows me to chat with our customers and assure them that they are getting the correct regulator for their application.
