I am happy to announce that Honeywell has released the EC 350 PTZ gas volume corrector that is designed to optimize and simplify custody transfer and industrial natural gas measurement. The new corrector is more accurate, easier to install and saves time and money over previous Mercury Honeywell correctors.
Natural Gas Measurement, Control, and Odorization Log
We provide insights into natural gas measurement, control, odorization, and various natural gas products.
As a manufacturers' agent, representing Mercury Instruments Honeywell, Linc Energy Systems is thrilled to announce that we are adding the Honeywell USM GT400 Ultrasonic Flowmeter to our product offerings. The meter nicely fills a void in our product line by providing natural gas measurement for custody transfer.
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.
Natural gas metering began during the infancy of the natural gas industry. The first gas companies demonstrated that flat rate billing didn’t work, while gas meters (measuring natural gas consumption) sparked growth for the natural gas distribution industry.
While the majority of thermal mass flow meter manufacturers recommend their meters be returned to the factory every year for calibration, there is one manufacturer that offers the ability to calibrate the meter onsite, or in-situ calibration.
Submetering is a metering system implemented in buildings or communities where there are multiple tenants, so the property owner or management company can bill the individual tenants for their utility usage. While submetering was initially invented in the 1920s, it didn’t become popular until the late 80s, because of increasing utility costs and environmental conservation.
In “What are carbon credits?” I explained how carbon credits (CERs) are awarded to those parties which reduce their Greenhouse Gas (GHG) below a specified quota. Those tradable credits earned can be sold to companies, countries or organizations that cannot reduce their emissions, thus making a new income source for landfill and livestock operations. In this post, I discuss agricultural and landfill methane emission offsets.
In North America, the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) offers creative mechanisms to promote the reduction of Greenhouse Gases which are linked to global warming. The group provides an emission registry, reduction, and trading syste
Having sold gas measurement equipment for decades, I’m often asked, “What is a turndown ratio?" While turndown (turn down) ratio is usually noted in a flow meters specifications, it’s rarely explained in layperson’s language what it is.
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?”
