The time-consuming and costly task of traditional flow meter calibrations, which requires shutting down the line, pulling the meter, installing a spare and paying a lab fee, is no longer a painful or costly process with the innovative VeriCal In-Situ Calibration Verification System for the ST00 Series Flare Gas Flow Meter from Fluid Components International (FCI).
Driven by tight budgets and competing needs for limited CAPEX funds, wastewater treatment plants are increasingly looking to reduce their operating expenses. Many are now referring to themselves as water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs), reflecting a heightened focus on recovering nutrients, methane, and a host of other properties from their waste flows. The largest boon to date has come from thermal energy, but producing biogas comes with its own set of challenges, including accurate gas flow measurement.
Activated sludge systems have been a cornerstone of wastewater treatment for over 100 years. This biological process uses suspended growth microorganisms to break down and consume organics and remove nutrients from the wastewater. The heart of the process takes place in aeration basins, where the microorganisms need to receive sufficient oxygen to stay alive.
Engineers responsible for optimizing the up time of process flow networks in a wide range of demanding industries will find the FLT93 Flow Switch from Fluid Components International (FCI) provides a reliable early warning alert to the potential of dry running conditions, cavitation and other pump issues that can lead to emergency shutdowns, service interruptions and unplanned costly maintenance.
Engineers responsible for functional safety and safety instrumented systems (SIS) per standards IEC 61511 and 61508 will find that Fluid Components International (FCI) now offers the industry’s broadest offering of Safety Integrity Level (SIL) compliant thermal flow meters and liquid/gas flow switches and level switches.
Process and plant engineers challenged with measuring wet dirty mixed gases in solid waste operations with co-generation electric power systems will find the advanced ST51 Series Thermal Mass Flow Meter from Fluid Components International (FCI) provides continuously accurate measurement of landfill gas flow to the co-gen electric power engines.
Process and plant engineers in search of a reliable point level monitoring and control solution will find the FLT Series Switch from Fluid Components International (FCI) is the answer with its excellent accuracy, dual trip points and relays, SIL 2 rating for ultra-reliability and full Ex agency approvals on the complete instrument.
When the plant team at a large semiconductor manufacturer in the northwestern region of the U.S. found its boilers were consuming an unusually large quantity of natural gas, the numbers simply didn’t add up. Something mysterious was going on with the boilers, which incorrectly showed gas consumption above plant permit levels, and this situation would eventually cause regulatory reporting problems later on.
In the oil and gas industry, regulations and requirements to measure, monitor and report flared gases continue to expand and extend. The U.S. EPA continues to focus on enhancing regulations aimed at reducing emissions of methane and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the environment.
A company with multiple natural gas liquid (NGL) fractionation process facilities located in the Southeastern U.S became concerned about a series of missed events and nuisance alarms caused by the flow switches installed to monitor potential overpressure situations with its pressure relief valves. The company wanted a highly reliable flow instrument solution that would detect a real event and avoid the lost productivity of nuisance alarms.
FCI gas mass flow meters are used in pipe diameters from 1/4 inch [6 mm] to over 99 inches [2500 mm]. From small dosing lines, to fuel gas feed lines, to mid-size aeration lines to large stacks and flare gases, FCI mass flow meters, flow switches and level switches are installed and working with superior accuracy and reliability day-in and day-out. FCI product technologies include thermal dispersion and Coriolis.
FCI products deliver accuracy and reliability to the world's most demanding processes and industries including chemical, oil and gas, power and energy, water and wastewater, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, nuclear power, aerospace, and many more.
Where product pedigree and instrument reliability cannot be left to chance, FCI offers the most reliable selection of non-moving part sensing solutions from off-the-shelf devices to custom engineered systems.
Complimenting FCI product leadership is a world class Flow and Level Calibration Facility in which all calibrations are performed in liquids or gases utilizing only N.I.S.T. traceable equipment and instrumentation. We are proud of our quality systems that meet the requirements of MIL-STD-45662A, ANSI/NCSL Z-540 and ISO EN17025.
