Here's an idea from IMAC Systems, when installing your pipeline strainers consider tagging the area with a strainer nameplate.
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.
The manufacturer of the Sage thermal mass flow meter has recently published a video revealing the key features of its flagship product, the Sage Prime®. Thermal flow meters are used for gas mass flow measurement in many applications.
Recently Sage Metering released a white paper discussing an improved method for measuring flare gas flow using thermal mass flow meters. The new paper explores flow meter challenges and using thermal flow meters in applications of biogas, landfill gas and natural gas, and even discusses refineries and chemical plants.
When sizing an Itron natural gas regulator, there are six factors needed to be considered to select the most suitable regulator for your application; including location to adjust for the effects of altitude.
A bit reminiscent of the “New Coke” product introduction, then returning “Coke Classic” to market only months later, after a 15 year hiatus Itron is bringing back a classic residential gas meter design to augment their product offerings.
Natural gas measurement has been driven by the industries need to produce more accurate instruments, and volume correction is a process of taking a gas meter’s uncorrected volume and converting it to corrected volume based upon the effects of temperature and pressure.
Natural gas meter evolution has been led by consumer need, our understanding of gas laws, and the need to increase the accuracy of measurement. From counting lamp lights to compensating for pressure and temperature, accuracy has been the driving force behind improving and designing new meter types.
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.
For more than fifty years, DUALCO has been recognized as a reliable source for grease gun grease, valve lubrication equipment parts, valve sealants and grease guns for oil and natural gas plug valves, ball valves and gate valves.
What are the common underground utility location methods? Since April is Safe Digging Month, we have been reminding everyone to call 811 to have your utilities located before you dig. Routinely we are asked about the different methods available to locate utilities. Within this article we will focus on electromagnetic utility locating, ground penetrating radar, acoustic utility locator, hydro excavation and even dowsing.
The Rhino TriView Pedestal Utility Marker is an innovative method which offers 360-degree visibility to existing pedestals needing sign restoration or new utility pedestal installations.
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.
What is a catalytic heater and how does it work? IMAC Systems, one of Linc Energy Systems’ fine principals has recently introduced a new product, the Thermcat Catalytic Heater. Catalytic heaters have been recognized as a reliable, efficient, and safe way to introduce flameless explosion-proof heat to various applications within the natural gas and oil industries.
A natural gas meter prover is a piece of equipment which verifies a gas meter is accurate. While various types of gas meters require meter proving, here we focus on the diaphragm gas meter.
There are various natural gas meter types used in the natural gas industry, each having its benefits and purpose. These different types of meters are either inferential meters or positive displacement meters. The main four types are diaphragm meters, orifice meters, rotary meters, and turbine meters.
