  • Improved Instrumentation Necessary to Support Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Refueling Infrastructure

    Many antique collectors love “visible” gasoline pumps that were common roughly a century ago. They’re the tall ones with a large glass graduated cylinder at the top. When filling up, the station attendant would manually pump gasoline into the cylinder, and then allow it to drain via gravity into the customer’s car. The amount charged was the difference between the starting and ending measurements. Obviously, not the most…
  • Safe, Reliable and Accurate Loading and Unloading Operations

    Loading and unloading operations for chemical producers must be performed safely, reliably, and accurately. I caught up with Emerson’s Martin McDonough on ways to mitigate risks and improve operational performance. These operations can be some of the highest-risk operations within a facility and account for as much as 80% of transport-related incidents. In addition to mitigating risks to personnel and the environment…

  • Ultrasonic Flow Meters Set a New Standard for Natural Gas Custody Transfer

    Watching the changes in oil and gas supply chains over the last few years has been exciting, to say the least. With changes in sources and political upheaval in global energy markets, many traditional relationships have been upset. The result has been that many new connections between buyers and sellers have taken shape, which makes understanding how custody transfer works all the more important. This coincides with…
