Gently down the stream
The oil and gas industry, along with the chemical and waterand wastewater industries, is one of the largest areas in which flowmeters are used. Both oil and natural gas need to be measured at many points...
Out with the old?
Should companies continue to invest in mechanical flow technology or move towards developing non-invasive intelligent sensors? The answer, of course, is they should do both. But the question goes much...
Check your check valve
Check valves, unlike isolation valves, have to dynamically respond to flow conditions and deliver long-term, trouble-free performance. The correct selection and sizing of swing check valves based on application...
Critical control
As process-based industries continually seek to improve efficiency, reliability and safety, a variety of equipment testing and verification strategies have been introduced. One of them is the use of partial...
Protection against overpressure
The pressure relief of cryogenic (transport) containers is an essential topic in the field of occupational safety. The protection of man and machine is particularly important if an unexpected evaporation...
Keeping tabs on tanks
Storage tanks are commonly used to store liquids that have been transferred from ocean-going vessels, and tend to be grouped together in tank farms. From there, the liquids maybe transferred to other vessels...
Made to measure
By far the most popular automatic, continuous (full measurement range) open channel flow measurement (OCM) approach worldwide remains the use of non-contacting ultrasonic technology, a compact transducer...
The next generation of actuators
With no need for compressed air, early electric actuators could operate with less sound and less maintenance than the predominant pneumatic actuator. Of course, the standard pneumatic option offered its...
