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.

We provide insights on natural gas measurement, underground utility damage prevention, utility contractor services and various natural gas products. Formerly the Linc Energy Blog.
Preston Marcoux joined Linc Energy Systems in 2017 as a Mechanical Engineer after graduating from CU Boulder with a BSME. In 2014-2016, Preston periodically worked as an intern at the company. He currently focuses on the odorant injection line and supports technical applications.
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.
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.
GPL Odorizers announced the release of a new portable odorant injection system. The odorizer unit demonstrates the company's capability to design and manufacture custom odorization systems to meet end-users' needs.
While many typically categorize gas flow meter types as either mass flow or volumetric flow, there are two other categories, velocity and inferential flow meters.
GPL Odorizers manufactures cost-effective, planet-friendly odorization solutions using advanced technology to deliver safe, accurate, and reliable odorant injection for natural gas, biogas, and propane. The GPL 750 odorant injection system is unique, and the following highlights its working principle.
