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.

Natural gas contains impurities. It’s possible that foreign material such as loose scale, rust, weld beads, grit or other contaminants can damage expensive downstream equipment. For this reason, natural gas filters, strainers, scrubbers and natural gas dryers become an inexpensive and effective way to prevent equipment damage and failures.
