Fuel gas measurement on natural gas compressor skids is accomplished with Wafer-Cone Flow Meters.
This advanced design is for gas or liquid service in 1 to 6-in. line sizes like those required for natural gas compressors (used to pressurize natural gas as it travels through pipelines in order to allow it to move as quickly as possible.)
Wafer-Cone delivers accurate compressor fuel gas consumption metering necessary for a variety of reasons including emissions reporting, compressor efficiency, and individual well site gas allocation. Designed with built-in flow conditioning, the meters offer ±1% accuracy with ±0.1% repeatability. They operate over a 10:1 flow range.
The space saving configurations install practically anywhere in a piping system or easily retrofit into an existing piping layout. With practically no maintenance required, models are said to offer advantages over traditional differential pressure technologies including the orifice plate.
Wafer-Cone is also applicable on natural gas wellheads, burners or ovens, cooling systems, or HVAC, declares its manufacturer. Additional details are free.
