We provide insights on natural gas measurement, underground utility damage prevention, utility contractor services and various natural gas products. Formerly the Linc Energy Blog.
While many typically categorize gas flow meter types as either mass flow or volumetric flow, there are two other categories, velocity and inferential flow meters.
Recently, GPL Odorizers and Linc Energy Systems were challenged by a client's problematic low-flow odorization site. Both companies worked together and conferred with Sage Metering, who designed the GPL 100 Thermal Mass Flow Meter for low-flow odorization use. Here is a case study on this application.
At Linc Energy Systems we sell an assortment of gas meters and natural gas flow meters to accommodate various applications. We represent the finest manufacturers of diaphragm gas meters, rotary gas meters, thermal mass meters and ultrasonic meters.
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.
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.
