    Flow Solutions Blog: Flow Expert Webinar: Limiting Gas Measurement Uncertainty in the Field

    Current international gas measurement standards for fiscal flowmeters focus only on the design and installation of the meters and don’t cover meter performance under field conditions. So how do you assure measurement accuracy of fiscal gas flowmeter systems in field conditions? And how much are unknown issues costing your gas measurement operation? Join us for our upcoming webinar on April 4 at 10 am CST and learn how...

    Flow Solutions Blog: Say goodbye to wasteful strategies for chemical injection

    How much does your company spend every year on chemicals? For most, chemical injection is a sunk cost of production – it can be a challenge to track how much is spent versus how much chemical is actually required. Yet without preventive chemicals, scales and waxes could plug tubing and shutting down facilities; hydrates could block production, costing up to $1M/day in shut-in production as it’s dissociated. Without corrosion...
