Fluenta a global leader in ultrasonic measurement and management technology for the Oil & Gas Industry, today announces the launch of its new range of ultrasonic flow transducers. The two new transducers enable ultrasonic measurement of gas flow in highly challenging environments.
The high-temperature range transducer can accurately measure gas flow at up to +250°C, allowing Fluenta’s ultrasonic technology to be deployed in a wider range of flare applications, as well as in the chemical processing industry. The cryogenic transducer is designed to work in processes as cold as -200°C, typically found in the liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry and other gas liquification and chemical processes.
New software and signal processing allows these transducers to function in processes containing up to 100% methane or 100% carbon dioxide, gas mixes which historically have presented challenges to standard ultrasonic flow meters.
Fluenta’s non-intrusive transducers do not interrupt gas flow and can be used across a wide range of pipe diameters from 6 inch to 72 inch. The new range of transducers and software are compatible with Fluenta’s FGM160, and can be fitted to existing installations.
With government regulation increasingly strict for monitoring flare gas emissions, companies are under pressure to accurately measure and record gas flow.
