Upstream Challenges:

  • Understanding mass balance and adjusting for optimal performance
  • Accurate emissions reporting for regional compliance and carbon footprint reduction
  • Affordable digital validation, especially for remote (offshore) environments

Panametrics Solutions:

  • DigitalFlow GF868 - The DigitalFlow GF868 from Panametrics is a highly versatile, high-performance flowmeter capable of many configurations with a large display and ample space for complicated wiring. Several options exist for I/O, including the ability to handle two flare lines with one box. The DigitalFlow GF868 is ideally suited in Zone 2 applications but can be fitted with a Zone 1 enclosure when required. Setup is simple through its large display and intuitive interface. The DigitalFlow GF868 works with all Panametrics gas transducers and is backward compatible with all older model Panametrics meters, including the original 7100 and its digital replacement, the 7168.
  • DigitalFlow XGF868i - The DigitalFlow XGF868i from Panametrics is a compact and explosion-proof/flame-proof transmitter version of the Panametrics DigitalFlow GF868 flare gas mass flow meter. The DigitalFlow XGF868 is ideally suited for offshore installations with harsh environments and limited space but can be applied downstream in refineries and petrochemical plants where Zone 1 is required.
  • flare.IQ - The flare.IQ Advanced Flare Control and Digital Verification by Panametrics, a Baker Hughes business, has a proven track record in optimizing flare operations. Our flare.IQ flare control solution reduces methane emissions, ensures high-efficiency flare combustion, and reduces steam usage in flare systems

Supporting Services:

  • Flow Profile Analysis Service (CFD) - By leveraging our expertise in flowmeters and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Panametrics implement USM flow profile accuracy correction factors for a variety of piping run conditions that compare favorably to accuracies normally obtained in straight-runs of 20D or more. All you have to do is provide us with an isometric drawing of your existing or planned installation, along with the process parameters, and we will model your flow and define a set of correction factors that will cover a wide range of flow and process conditions.
  • FlareCare SSA - Through one of our FlareCare SSA packages, you can reduce risk by avoiding lead times associated with standard transactional services, reduce costs and liabilities by reducing the need for scaffolding installation and transducer extraction, and enjoy proactive scheduling with an established timeline for your annual verifications as well as quarterly and preventative maintenance requirements. Additionally, you can eliminate the need for annual inspections with on-demand digital verifications when your FlareCare SSA is powered by flare.IQ.

Gas Flow Measurement Without Restrictions

flare gas measurement

 

Early innovations in flare measurement by Panametrics have evolved extensively over the years.  For over four decades, Panametrics has used ultrasonic meters to provide a better way to measure applications, but the unique requirements of today’s flare gas applications now require more complex operational features.

Panametrics has developed a unique ultrasonic meter that manages low-end flow for normal operation and continues to measure flow during adverse conditions, where the flow range would exceed conventional technologies. Our meter has no restrictions and eliminates backpressure that can cause safety issues in flares. It can also determine the molecular weight of hydrocarbon gas, yielding a mass flow measurement that identifies which type of gas is flaring.

Advanced Diagnostics & Emission Control

Today the need for flare systems has moved beyond understanding the flow and knowing the bulk molecular weight. Growing public pressure to lessen the environmental impact of emissions, especially gases like methane, now expects efficient combustion and accurate meter measurements. Panametrics has solved this challenge, integrating diagnostics from the flare meter with new advanced process control algorithms to determine flare gas BTU content. 

Regulatory Compliance Expertise

Complying with emissions control regulations like GHG EPA 40 CFR and MACT RS 63.670 takes more than just an accurate flow meter. We have the procedures and expertise needed to ensure you’re in compliance. From evaluating site data for a recommendation on an installation to field commissioning a new meter or inspecting and certifying existing installations, our applications engineering and field services teams have the expertise and regulatory knowledge to guide you.
