At LNG plants, terminals and storage facilities natural gas is handled in liquefied form at temperatures around -260 °F.
Such extreme conditions present special challenges for most common metering principles. FLEXIM’s patented WaveInjector technology provides a non-invasive solution for these applications and therefore overcomes typical problems associated with intrusive metering methods. The thermally separated ultrasonic transducers offer a reliable and proven way to measure LNG flows without causing any pressure drop.
Non-invasive flow measurement with ultrasound is an elegant alternative to classical invasive measurement techniques. As the clamp-on transducers are simply fixed on the outside of the pipe, no pipework and thus no process interruption is necessary for installation.
