Flow Measurement for Process Control and Custody Transfer
Reduce downtime, optimize efficiency, maximize profit
In many industries, process control relies on understanding how much fluid flows through the pipelines in order to optimize efficiency and maximize profit. Flow meters measure the flow rate, or quantity, of liquids, gases and steam using a variety of technologies.
Among these technologies, ultrasonics remains one of the fastest growing in the oil & gas industry because of its accuracy, reliability and diagnostic capabilities. With no moving parts to wear out and no obstruction to the flow, ultrasonic flow meters provide an overall cost of ownership lower than that of mechanical flow meters and older flow meter technologies.
An equally cost-effective alternative is the Vortex flow meter, which offers a variety of applications with multi-parameter measurement capability for liquids, gases and steam.
Panametrics first entered the ultrasonic flow market more than 50 years ago by presenting its state-of-the-art gas flow meter. A BHGE business since 2002, today’s Panametrics brand has continued to excel in the industry and is well-known for its high-technology clamp-on and inline flow meters that enable engineers and technicians to operate in the toughest environments and handle the most challenging applications.
