GMI's state-of-the art PS200 is a rugged, lightweight, and reliable multi gas monitor ideal for personal protection in harsh environments, hotworks, and confined spaces. Watch the video to learn more.
Blackmer, a global leader in positive displacement and centrifugal pump, and reciprocating compressor technologies, is pleased to announce the production and availability of a new video that has been designed to illustrate the proper installation of a vapor-recovery unit’s compressor in oil-and-gas production applications.
The four-minute video, titled “Proper Vapor Recovery System Compressor Assembly,” explains to the viewer how the proper mounting and installation of the various models of Blackmer Reciprocating Gas Compressors—the HD, HDS and NG Series—as part of an in-the-field vapor-recovery unit (VRU) can optimize the operational reliability and production of the system while also reducing costly downtime and maintenance.
Emerson Process Management has added a robust electro-hydraulic operator to its broad valve automation capabilities with the release of the Bettis EHO actuator. The EHO actuator couples proven technologies from Emerson’s Valve Automation offering of actuation and controls to handle critical shutdown situations where dependability is a must.
The EHO actuator is ideal for a diverse range of applications, from topsides valve automation on offshore platforms to remote pipelines where operational upsets can cause safety and environmental hazards, as well as costly production losses. To help operators counteract these challenges, the EHO provides a compact design with actuator and control components from Emerson that have been field proven for decades in critical service and features that combine more than 200 years of experience in valve actuation, electric motor, and hydraulic control technology.
Emerson Process Management has released the new Rosemount 8700M Magnetic Flowmeter line which provides enhanced safety for hazardous area applications along with intelligent diagnostics. These features help users across a variety of industries take advantage of improved installation, maintenance and process management practices.
The 8700M line has been enhanced with advanced safety features for added reliability in hazardous areas enabling the highest level of magnetic flowmeter approvals. Glass feed-throughs transmit signals between isolated compartments of the transmitter enclosure, providing the most effective barrier for safety and reliability. The all-welded sensor design and dual compartment transmitter housing keep critical components isolated from environmental hazards – a leading cause of electronics failures.
Wavefront Technology Solutions Inc., a technology provider offering the highly effective Powerwave fluid delivery technology to energy producers for maximizing oil and gas reserves, has announced it has entered into a technology co-ownership agreement with a Canadian integrated energy company to adapt existing Powerwave technology for SAGD operations.
Wavefront and the Canadian integrated energy company have filed two patent applications related to the new stimulation approach, which accelerates communication between a SAGD well pair to reduce the time between well drilling/completion and well production.

Oil and gas engineers and operators of hydraulic fracturing well sites will find the ST100 Series Thermal Mass Air/Gas Flow Meter from Fluid Components International (FCI) provides an EPA compliant, rugged solution to measure flare gas flows at the wellhead.
As part of shale gas frack well drilling operations, there is frequently waste or excess gas that is returned to the surface. This gas is vented to a flare and burned off. US EPA Directive 40 CFR Part 98 requires flow measurement and reporting of these flared gases, which can be difficult with very low flow rates of 15 fps to 20 fps [4 mps to 6 mps], containing mixed gas compositions, potentially dirty gas, and at potentially elevated temperatures and wide pressure variation.
Bryn Murray, Vice-President, Wolseley Industrial Canada Inc., has announced that Wolseley Industrial has acquired all of the assets of the pipe, valve and fitting (PVF) supply business of Goodman Industrial.
Established in Esterhazy, Sask., and operational since 1970, Goodman is a wholesale distributor of industrial materials primarily serving the potash industry in Saskatchewan. Operating out of their facility in Esterhazy, Goodman has 12 employees and a long history of success as a privately held, customer-centric PVF supply business.
The Power MIG 210 MP from Lincoln Electric is a multi-process welder for the hobbyist, educator or small contractor who wants to perform MIG welding and a lot more, including DC stick, DC TIG and self-shield flux-cored wire welding.
Push-and-turn digital controls and a color display screen make setup and operation intuitive and easy, while the all-metal wire drive and sturdy sheet metal construction make the welder rugged and ready for any job in the home or small shop.
The Honourable Lisa Raitt, Minister of Transport, has launched the Government of Canada's safety awareness campaign for unmanned air vehicles (UAVs), or drones. The national campaign will help ensure UAV users—both recreational and commercial—understand the rules of the skies and always think safety first.
The first phase of the campaign, unveiled recently, provides the public with new safety guidelines and an easy‑to‑follow infographic that clarifies when to apply for Transport Canada permission to fly their UAV. This winter, the second phase of the campaign will include search engine and social media advertising, awareness videos and a simpler process to apply for permission to fly. Transport Canada has also launched tc.gc.ca/SafetyFirst, which provides Canadians with the information and advice they need to fly their UAV safely and legally.
ASCO Numatics has introduced its ASCO 364 Series spool valve for control panel applications in the onshore and offshore oil and gas industry. The new valve combines compact construction with low-power options that feature higher operating pressures and temperature ratings than competitive models.
“ASCO’s new spool valve incorporates rugged 316L stainless steel construction and our proven solenoid valve technology for the greatest corrosion resistance and highest reliability in harsh upstream exploration and production environments,” said Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive vice president, sales and marketing — Americas, ASCO Numatics. “The valves are designed for drop-in replacement and compatibility with most existing control panel applications, and popular versions are available through our ASCO TODAY and ASCO 5Day quick-shipping programs. This makes them ideal for maintenance programs that require long-lived products with rapid delivery,” he said.
Atlas Copco Portable Energy has announced the new XRVS 1550+, a portable compressor that offers variable pressure and flow settings with the DrillAirXpertsystem. The new compressor has been specially designed for demanding oil and gas projects from drilling to pipeline testing.
Building on the widely accepted XRVS 1000+ platform, Atlas Copco extended its DrillAir range by offering a complete line of efficient, high-pressure air compressors.
