Field research and testing conducted by Southwest Research in San Antonio, Texas and the Pipeline Gas Compressor Research Council (PCRC) confirmed that pulsation created by compressors, flow control valves, regulators and some piping configurations may create undesirable levels of Square Root Error (SRE) and/or resulting Gauge Line Error (GLE). Pulsation at the orifice meter is a major source of lost and unaccounted for natural gas. These errors create either large economic gains or losses for the buyer and seller along a natural gas pipeline system.
Mini valves are located at both ends of the sampling cylinder. They have a shut-off function and prevent a leakage of the medium. Rupture disc holders provide protection against overpressure in the sampling cylinder. Learn more about mini valves and rupture disc holders.
Besides to the well-known hard seated valves Soft Seated Valves are considered to be bubble-tight and leak-free. Bubble-tight shut off is required to achieve accurate measurement through the use of instrumentation valves and manifolds.
