Application Briefs

Aeration Airflow Aeration Airflow

Learn why the thermal mass flow meter is the preferred meter for measuring wastewater aeration airflow and excels over orifice plates and vortex shedding.

Digester Gas

Anaerobic digestion at wastewater treatment plants produces digester gas, a methane-rich byproduct and renewable energy source.

combustion control Ethanol Production

Thermal mass flow meters are ideal for the measurement of natural gas flow during ethanol production for GHG emissions analysis.

Landfill Gas

There is a need for the accurate measurement of landfill gas flow in waste-to-energy projects and GHG emissions reporting.

Compressor Station Gas Flow Control Applications Natural Gas Compressor

Investigate natural gas flow measurement at the compressor station, including fuel gas, blowdown and leakage at the dry gas seals.

Natural Gas Distribution

Examine measuring natural gas in non-custody transfer distribution systems applications, such as natural gas flow monitoring.

Flare Gas and 40 CFR 60 Quad O: Storage Vessels Nitrogen Blanketing

Consider nitrogen blanketing, a process of introducing an inert gas, to a storage tank to offset the effects of oxygen on the storage material.
