To ensure the flow rate of combustible gases in a vapor header line connected to its incinerator were measured accurately, a major oil/gas began searching for a higher reliability instrumentation solution. Combustible toxic vapours result during the refining process at the plant and must be captured for safe disposal. Incorrectly measuring the rate of vapor flow in the header line during the refining process could result in an improper mix of toxic waste gases that would fail to combust in the facility’s incinerator. If these gases are not properly incinerated, there is a risk of their accidental release into the environment resulting in costly government fines and a potential plant shut-down.
