The combination of two signal types (a variable “chirp” signal and a continuous sine wave signal) enhances the accuracy and stability of the meter readings, preventing signal loss at high and low velocities.
The accuracy and reliability of this unique signal processing technology has been verified by CEESI and VSL. Achieving excellent performance in a broad spectrum of flare gas applications, the Fluenta FGM 160 Flare Gas Meter is the measurement solution of choice for many major companies in the Oil & Gas and Chemicals industry.
Short of space?
Enhanced measurement stability thanks to chirp signal processing prevents signal loss at low and high velocities and reduces the required pipe length to 15 diameters, saving installation costs for additional pipework and precious space.
Why Ultrasonic for Flare Gas?
Unlike other technologies, ultrasonic measurement is not impacted by the composition or cleanliness of the gas flow. It delivers good repeatability regardless of turndown ratio or temperature ranges.
As Fluenta transducers are non-intrusive and do not have any moving parts, the requirements for maintenance and support are minimal. In fact, ultrasonic meters do not need shutdowns for installation or maintenance. This keeps the lifetime costs low and boosts return on investment.
Ultrasonic meters are the only devices which can deliver highly accurate results in flaring applications. While typical regulations today ask for 5% accuracy, only ultrasonic technology has the potential to keep up with stricter requirements.
No conditioning plates or other pipework inserts are required, and all Fluenta transducers require just 10 pipe diameters of straight tubing before the transducers and 5 diameters downstream. The Fluenta field computer can be mounted up to 50 meters from the transducers, allowing for easy, compact and flexible installation and positioning. The transducers require minimal maintenance as they have no moving parts.
Fluenta transducers are non-intrusive, meaning they are less prone to the build-up of dirt and corrosion which can impact the measurement accuracy, and do not affect gas flow.
Transducers which extend into the gas process are more likely to get damaged, increasing the need for repairs and replacement.
