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.
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.
Blogging about the measurement, control and correction of natural gas.
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.
