Technology Comparison: Thermal Mass Vs. Ultrasonic Meters for Flare Gas Measurement
This article describes and compares ultrasonic and thermal mass technologies used for flare gas measurement and highlights the advantages and disadvantages of each. For ultrasonic measurement, this article refers to Fluenta’s FGM 160 flare gas meter. Measurement Methods An ultrasonic flow meter sends ultrasonic signals across a pipe at a 45° angle to the direction […]
Petronas Upgrades to Fluenta
In 2020, Malaysia’s government-owned oil and gas company, Petronas, stated their aspirations to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 with the application of new technologies to reduce emissions. This included a focus on reducing and ultimately eliminating routine flaring. To reduce flare gas volumes, the first step Petronas took was to ensure accurate and reliable […]
21 Key Considerations to Make Before Choosing a Flare Meter – A Checklist
Where would you start if you’ve been tasked with specifying a flare gas measurement solution? Unlike acquiring a new boiler for your home, correctly specifying a flare gas meter requires a thorough process to identify an installation’s needs and requirements before engaging with a vendor. We have seen many operators get this step wrong and […]
High Levels of Hydrocarbons
The FlarePhase Cryo is optimized to handle difficult gas compositions including high methane concentrations.
Cryogenic Gas Flows
The ability to measure gas flows at cryogenic temperatures for extended periods of time while maintaining accuracy levels makes this ideal for the LNG and gas liquefaction industries.
Low Gas Densities
The FlarePhase 350 is also designed and optimized to be able to accurately measure low density gas flows, which are otherwise challenging.
