Measuring technology specialist Krohne has extended the options for their H250 M40 flowmeter in order to match the requirements of the oil and gas industry.
Here, variable area flowmeters are widely used for flow measurement on injection skids for corrosion-, scale- and hydrate-inhibitors like Methanol or Monoethylene Glycol. Common areas of application are also measuring agents and solvents in gas treatment processes as well as reliably monitoring small amounts of Nitrogen and Fuel gas. Standard materials include Nace MR0175/MR0103 compliant 316L or materials and welding following the Norsok standard. Hastelloy, Monel, 6Mo, Titanium and Inconel are available as an option.
Flange connections reach up to ASME B16.5 Class 2500 flanges. Even higher pressure ratings can be realised when applying API flanges. For hazardous gas and dust areas, H250 M40 has achieved more than 30 approvals worldwide, including Atex, IECEx, usFMc, NEPSI, INMETRO, KGS, EAC and PESO/CCOE. For quality assurance, comprehensive tests and certifications are in place such as positive material identification, material mill certificates, x-ray and dye-penetration examination of the welding seams, pressure and leakage tests, and finally third party factory inspection.
