Flow Meter Measures Flare Gas for Oil/Gas Offshore Platforms and Refineries

Apr 20 2010 Read 879 Times

Offshore production platform operators and oil/gas process engineers now have a reliable, cost-effective solution for measuring the flow of combustible hydrocarbon waste gases in flare gas system operations. The GF90 Flare Gas Flow Meter from US manufacturer Fluid Components International (FCI) solves the problem of measuring dangerous, explosive and toxic gases that often flow at extremely varying and/or low levels. The GF90 Flow Meter will be exhibited in FCI Booth 7705 at the Offshore Technology Conference, May 3-6, Houston, Texas.

Hydrocarbon combustible waste gases are challenging to measure due to their wide flow fluctuations caused by variable production and refining processes. With its highly sensitive thermal mass flow sensing element, the GF90 Flow Meter also precisely measures gases of varying hydrocarbon composition. This makes it the ideal gas measuring solution for ultimately eliminating these dangerous, polluting gases.

With a highly sensitive thermal mass flow sensing element and microprocessor-based intelligence featuring multiple calibration groups built into the design, the advanced GF90 Flare Gas Flow Meter delivers precision flow measurement to a low 0.25 SFPS. A flow meter that accurately measures combustible hydrocarbon waste gases for flare system disposal ensures that these dangerous byproducts are safely and efficiently eliminated from the environment with minimal pollution. The disposal of flare gases protects people, equipment and complies with air quality regulations.
