Useful little helpers in the measurement of natural gas

DirectMountSystem - How to eliminate gauge line errors in natural gas applications.

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.

Save money with the bubble-tight Soft Seated Valve Design

DirectMountSystem - Save money with the bubble-tight Soft Seated Valve Design.

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.
