Flow-Cal Enterprise Software Suite
Flow-Cal Inc. is a leading provider of measurement software solutions that automate the validation and reporting of EFM devices. Flow-Cal’s products begin at the field level, where its PROVEit, PYCit, CALCit and TESTit applications are designed to schedule and record the calibration and testing of field equipment. The flexibility and power of the applications have allowed them to be used by both the liquid and gas divisions within an organization.
The suite of field products augments the functionality of Flow-Cal’s flagship product, FLOWCAL Enterprise. Enterprise is used throughout the industry to validate, recalculate, store and report gas and liquid measurement data.
Flow-Cal’s PROVEit application is used to prove, track and manage meter performance data. Using either volumetric or mass calculations, PROVEit conforms to the API guidelines. The PYCit software application is designed to calculate and manage a company’s density meter proving information, employing the latest API Chapter 14.6 algorithms. Flow-Cal’s TESTit software provides a measurement technician with an advanced progression of automation tools for meeting their calibration and sampling requirements. The CALCit software uses the latest industry standard calculations for gas volume, plate size and liquid correction factors, assisting in the validation of other systems.

General Monitors TS4000H Toxic Gas Detector
The TS4000H Intelligent Toxic Gas Detector from General Monitors has been approved by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and found to be in compliance with international safety standards for explosive environments. The TS4000H offers protection against a wide range of hazardous industrial gases and is able to safeguard against oxygen deficiency.
With its advanced design, the TS4000H Toxic Gas Detector offers many valuable features including event logging, a clearly visible LED and an indicator for remaining sensor life. The detector is easy to install and can self-calibrate. Process engineers who need to protect people, equipment and the environment will find the TS4000H well suited for a broad range of industries, including petrochemical installations, oil and gas production facilities, water and wastewater treatment sites and power plants.
The TS4000H monitors a variety of toxic gases like ammonia, carbon monoxide, chlorine, chlorine dioxide, hydrogen, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen sulfide, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, oxygen deficiency, ozone and sulfur dioxide. The system displays gas concentrations up to 500 ppm, fault codes for troubleshooting, prompts when calibration is needed, and provides complete status to the control room.

McCrometer V-Cone Flow Meter
McCrometer’s space-saving V-Cone Flow Meter is an advanced differential pressure instrument, which is ideal for use with liquid, steam or gas media in rugged conditions where accuracy, low maintenance and cost are important. With its differential pressure built-in flow conditioning design, the V-Cone Flow Meter is especially useful in tight-fit and retrofit installations in which the long runs of straight pipe required by Orifice Plates, Venturi Tubes and other technologies are either impractical or unavailable.
The V-Cone Flow Meter is designed for today’s most challenging oil/gas production applications. This flow meter is a better solution because it combines exceptional performance, low maintenance and long life for superior value.
With its unique differential pressure cone design, the versatile V-Cone Flow Meter provides superior flow measurement accuracy and repeatability regardless of space and weight constraints. McCrometer’s field-proven flow measurement solutions have met the demanding production environment of the oil and gas industry for more than three decades.
Third-party testing to the American Petroleum Institute’s API 22.2 Testing Protocol for Differential Pressure Flow Devices confirms the V-Cone’s highly accurate flow measurement with minimal pipe runs. The V-Cone also is available with international certifications such as Measurement Canada, INMETRO and many others.

Nextteq Gastec Detector Tube System
Nextteq’s complete line of Gastec pumps and detector tubes precisely measure gases and vapors in more than 600 applications, making it an invaluable tool for gas detection and measurement as well as detecting leaks and fugitive emissions.
Gastec’s pump is easy-to-use, lightweight and rugged. Its one-stroke piston action provides reliable operation with no partial samples. Nextteq’s Thermal Ring provides on-the-spot measurement of ambient temperature for tests that require temperature correction.
Measurement is fast, convenient and accurate. The direct-read length of stain tubes offer distinct lines of demarcation for easier viewing. Gastec Detector Tubes are intrinsically safe and always ready to use anytime, anywhere.
With Gastec, end-users can rapidly measure many substances that can’t be measured with electronic gas detection devices, and no other detector tube manufacturer can measure more substances than Gastec.
To review chemicals and measuring ranges of the Gastec Detector Tube System download a copy of the Gastec 18th Edition Tube Guide from the company’s website in the Featured Products section on the home page.

SITRANS FUS-LDS Leak Detection System
The Siemens FUS-LDS Leak Detection System offers a complete software and hardware solution for liquid pipelines. The FUS-LDS uses clamp-on ultrasonic flow meters mounted directly onto the pipeline. SIMATIC WinCC leak detection software monitors all flow meters and pipeline segments, serving as a quick and reliable way for the pipeline operator to detect and localize leaks.
The FUS-LDS does not require continuous operator attention, because the alarm thresholds are pre-set and alert the operator when attention is needed. The system also has the ability to detect very small leaks by allowing the operator to utilize “visual trending.” A fully optimized system eliminates the occurrence of false alarms.
The Siemens FUS-LDS Leak Detection System meets API 1130 “Computational Pipeline Monitoring for Liquid Pipelines” and PHMSA 195.444 CPM Leak Detection requirements for safety, helping to protect the environment and limit contamination issues.
This system lives up to the requirements of pipeline companies and regulatory agencies while ultimately satisfying one major goal: providing users and the community with peace of mind.

T.D. Williamson STOPPLE Train Plugging System
T.D. Williamson’s STOPPLE Train plugging system is a double-block and bleed patented design that makes it possible to insert two plugging heads through a single fitting. The void between the two plugging heads can be bled down to provide a “zero energy” zone. Both plugging heads are rated to 1,480 psi at 180 degrees F, or reduced pressures at temperatures up to 350 F.
As a result of using the STOPPLE Train system, TDW customers reap the benefits of enhanced safety and reduced costs normally associated with fitting, welding, inspection services, scaffolding and crane rental, excavation services and fewer “hot work” permits.
The method offers a significant improvement over traditional double-block and bleed methods, which require twice the number of line penetrations. Costs associated with the purchase and welding of fittings are reduced by 50 percent because just one set is required.
The STOPPLE Train system has been used successfully for customers seeking to carry out routine maintenance and emergency repair work on pressurized piping systems located subsea, in remote onshore environments and in refineries and processing plants.
