New Tutorial Video: Vögtlin Digital Mass Flow Meter Featuring Touch Screen Configuration
Vögtlin’s red-y compact 2 Mass Flow Meter for gases offers touch screen technology and automatic screen position adjustment for intuitive navigation. Users can configure the parameters of the mass flow meter including alarms, totalizer, gas selection, flow (over 20 units!), and other settings are easily accessible using fingertip selection on the touch screen display. A more intelligent and user-friendly VA meter alternative, the battery-operated red-y compact 2 saves time in the field and reduces the need for training.

Substantial Gulf of Mexico Platform Project for TASI Flow
On a new oil production platform, injection of chemicals and methanol into the oil flow line ensures a smooth startup and continued oil production. The meters of choice for chemical injection offshore in the GOM include AW Gear Meters, AW/KEM Turbine Meters and Litre Meter Rotary Piston Meters because they meet the specifications for wide parameters in flow rates, viscosity and pressure ranges. After recovery, the oil and produced water are also chemically treated once it reaches the topsides system adding a low-pressure component to the project scope…
Wireless Telemetry System Streamlines Water Distribution System of Open Pit Mine
SignalFire Wireless Telemetry provided a wireless sensing system to streamline data transmissions at a vast, high elevation open pit mining operation. The mining company experienced problems when manually monitoring water flow through a pipeline system that supported its open pit mine. The manual process involved workers traveling along the waterline several times a day to record readings on numerous ultrasonic flow meters.
The wireless solution from SignalFire provided a system that performs reliably in snow and cold temperatures present in the high mountainous elevations, maintains its own long-term energy source, and allows for safety measures to protect worker safety at lower elevations onsite…
EXACT Servo Gear Metering System Automates Taylor Guitar Assembly
Taylor Guitar automated a messy and cumbersome manual process to affix steel reinforcements into guitar necks with the EXACT B Series Servo Gear Pump Metering System. A previous dispensing machine mixed but did not automate the process. Not only does the EXACT B Servo Gear Pump Metering System dispense epoxy, it automatically mixes the correct amount to bond wood and metal during an automated assembly process.
According to Taylor Guitar, the addition of the gear pump metering system ensures higher product quality at a reduced production expense…

Reverse Flow Measurement — An expert view from Litre Meter
Most flow meters are setup for forward flow measurement. That is, they have a preferred direction for operation and that is adopted by the manufacturer/designer and advised to the customer.
Some flow meters are symmetrical in the forward and reverse direction and will work in the reverse direction, too. Some are symmetrical and may not function or function well, due to meter design or principle, in reverse…
SignalFire Wireless Telemetry, innovators of wireless mesh networking systems used in challenging and hazardous locations such as oil and gas, announces the retirement of its founder and the restructure of its management team.
