There are various styles of flowmeters for natural gas measurement, which can be categorized by their operating technologies, such as vortex shedding, Coriolis technology, differential pressure, positive displacement, turbine, ultrasonic or thermal. While there are pros and cons of using each of these types of flow meters, this entry explains, “What is a thermal mass flowmeter?”
Natural Gas Measurement, Control, and Odorization Log
We provide insights into natural gas measurement, control, odorization, and various natural gas products.
Here is a natural gas regulator cross-reference guide comparing six manufacturers, which assists in the selection of your units.
It is no secret that the effectiveness of your cathodic protection system depends on the experience of the installer and the quality of raw materials put into the pipeline. Many CP professionals often wonder about the pros and cons of using insulating flange kits over monolithic isolation joints.
Cathodic protection (CP) is a technique used to control the corrosion of a metal substance in various applications. Some common areas which apply this science are fuel tanks, pier pilings, ships, offshore oil platforms and casings, metal reinforcement bars for concrete structures, as well as pipelines.
Pipeline corrosion and digging by third party individuals or contractors are among the two leading causes of pipeline accidents. In earlier posts, I’ve discussed the significance of protecting pipelines against corrosion. I also discussed the importance of calling 811 to locate the utility lines before digging. But calling 811 does not always guarantee your lines will be located, which made me wonder what makes pipelines and facilities locatable?
