Honeywell expands offering of measurement solutions for US natgas distribution
HOUSTON — Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) announced it has expanded its portfolio of integrated gas measurement solutions in the US. The company is now offering the standard Honeywell Elster RABO meter combined with a mechanical totalizer or instrument drive (ID), along with the direct-mounted Honeywell Mercury Instruments TCI temperature corrector or EC 350 volume corrector. This combination will deliver advanced measurement, control, and analysis technology from a single source, and thus reduce costs and integration challenges for customers.
There is growing pressure on natural gas companies to deliver more energy, increase profitability, and minimize financial losses. Meanwhile, operators must reduce operating expenses (OPEX) and tightly control capital budgets. One remedy to this situation is optimization of the distribution infrastructure used to deliver natural gas to households and commercial and industrial (C&I) consumers.
Honeywell’s integrated solutions portfolio provides US natural gas companies with a compact, reliable and accurate gas measurement capability, meeting the fiscal measurement needs of commercial and industrial customers.
The RABO meter and volume correctors are part of Honeywell’s Gas Measurement and Data Management Solution. The newly integrated offering delivers accurate flow measurement data converted to volume at standard condition for use in billing purposes. It includes PTZ correction for commercial and industrial applications optimized for custody transfer.
Available in four sizes, the RABO meter comes in a heavy duty, compact design with a high impact-resistant, index cover aluminum body and impellers. It provides greater rangeability than competitive meters, increased maximum operational pressure (MAOP), low pressure drop enabling flexibility in station design, reduction in hazardous noise for safer operations, reduction in piston speed for longer asset life, and a low cost of ownership. TCI is the most advanced electronic temperature-compensating index available for natural gas rotary meters.
The ongoing development of shale gas resources in the US has spurred infrastructure construction for both natural gas processing capacity and LNG export terminals.
Russian natural gas monopoly Gazprom is strengthening its presence in the gas market of the Middle East through the planned construction of an 11-metric-MMtpy–12-metric-MMtpy LNG plant in Iran.
