May 24, 2017—With the VeriCal In-Situ Calibration Verification System for the ST100 Series Flare Gas Flow Meter from Fluid Components International (FCI), offshore oil/gas process engineers and operators may now eliminate the task of traditional flow meter calibrations, which require shutting down the line, pulling the meter, installing a spare and paying a lab fee to help meet air quality management regulations.
FCI’s exhibit in Booth 4402 at the 2017 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) featured a demo of the VeriCal System with the ST100 Series Flow Meter. This calibration verification system is designed to lower flow meter operating costs in flare gas applications aboard offshore platforms, at land-based oil/gas facilities and in petrochemical plants.
The ST100 Flare Gas Flow Meter with the VeriCal In-Situ Calibration System is designed to meet the US Minerals Management Service (MMS) Rule, 30 CFR Part 250, Subpart K, Section 250, stipulating that all domestic US offshore rigs processing more than an average of 2000 bopd must install flare/vent gas flow meters. These regulations are intended to protect the environment through the monitoring of greenhouse gases (GHG).
The VeriCal In-Situ Calibration System verifies the ST100 Flow Meter’s flare gas calibration is accurate in minutes without removing the meter from the pipe or process to meet MMS regulations.
Fluid Components International is a global company committed to meeting the needs of its customers through innovative solutions for the most challenging requirements for sensing, and measuring flow, pressure and temperature of gases.
