Superior Analytics Instruments installed a full-bore magnetic flow meter at a sand mine’s polymer feed line for dewatering sludge in west Texas. The flow meter from GF Piping Systems is used to quantify the effectiveness of various polymers per ton of solids.
Promag W has a “0 x DN full bore” option for a close-knit pipeline network or obstacles in pipes. The mag meter provides maximum measuring performance without tube restriction, and thus without pressure loss, according to the manufacturer.
The Roxar 2600 provides operators with actionable recommendations to optimize meter performance and enable proactive maintenance based on continuous data collected from an onsite multiphase flow meter and analyzed remotely by the company’s experts.
Promag W is offered with welded flanges as well as with lap-joint flanges. The 0 DN inlet option allows for measurement performance of ±0.5 percent or better when the meter is installed immediately after an obstruction, says the manufacturer.
Tasi Group, a privately owned business focused on test, measurement, inspection and assembly equipment, acquired Onicon Measurement Solutions. Onicon specializes in the design and manufacture of flow meters and energy-measurement systems. The company's products can be used to measure steam, natural gas, airflow and liquid flows.
A flow meter calibrated for a “standard” natural gas mix may result in compromised flow measurement accuracy if the natural gas composition in the pipe does not match the mix the flow meter has been calibrated to measure. The challenges users face when the natural gas composition varies from place to place is the focus of a case study from Fox Thermal, Marina, Calif.
Model FT4X with datalogger records flow rate, totals and other events and alarms. Other features include 40 daily totals; settable contract time defines the contract day; time/date stamped alarm and event logs; power-off totalizer; and display of density and gross heating value based on selected gas composition.
High precision mass flow meters and controllers for gases, Type 8741 and 8745 offer a choice of industrial Ethernet protocols, including Profinet, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT or Modbus TCP. Typical applications include metal, glass or ceramic processing, coating technology or in the production of foams in the food and plastics industries.
