December 20, 2011 - With the objective of supporting customers in the energy industry, McCrometer has installed a new Wet Gas Test Stand to pursue a series of new research and development (R&D) initiatives. As energy demand increases for natural gas worldwide, energy producers are tapping lower pressure natural gas wells to increase supplies. While true multiphase measurement systems have been employed for years, gas flows with some wetness have remained a difficult metering application to solve. To make wells producing wet gas commercially viable, operators must frequently test the liquid load in the gas stream with separators or a trace method or install very large and expensive wet gas meters. The new Wet Gas Test Stand is already in use at McCrometer as a simulation tool. With a very limited number of wet gas test labs in the world, their time is of high value and difficult to secure. Operating a privately owned Wet Gas Test Stand gives McCrometer the unique opportunity to advance the physical understanding of wet gas flows without the constraints of traditional third party testing. Unrestricted access to such tools helps speed the testing of theories and discovery. The knowledge gained from McCrometer’s Wet Gas Test Stand will be applied to improve the measurement of wet gases as well as better understand the entrained liquids in wet gas flows. About McCrometer McCrometer’s advanced liquid, steam and gas flow measurement solutions solve complex challenges in Municipal/Industrial Water & Wastewater, Oil & Gas, Process Control & Plant, Electric Power Generation, Institutional Facilities and Agriculture. The company’s products and systems are found in thousands of installations worldwide. Its products and systems meet many of the world’s most demanding industrial, safety and quality standards.
