Within natural gas systems, one of the most important methods to verify the integrity of pipelines is through the hydrostatic pressure test. Designed to test the transmission systems - one of the largest sections in a natural gas system - the hydrostatic test varies on the level of requirements. Depending on local regulations, it may require testing pressure and multiple temperatures in the pipeline for several hours prior to and after a pipe is put into service.
AMETEK has broadened its AMEVision communication and display system capabilities to include the 3050 series of moisture analyzers. Originally designed for WDG-V analyzers, the AMEVision system provides real-time moisture measurements and trend data while also detailing a variety of maintenance and troubleshooting information.
AMETEK Sensor, Test & Calibration (STC) has launched its new JOFRA CTC-1205 compact temperature calibrator. This temperature calibrator offers improved calibration times over JOFRA's CTC-1200 calibrator and is ideal for waste incineration, power plants, oil and gas production as well as for the metal industry.
AMETEK Grabner Instruments and Agilent Technologies provide an innovative mobile testing solution for the petroleum industry
Grabner Instruments, based in Austria, is well known for developing and manufacturing automatic petroleum testing equipment. In this partnership, Grabner will focus on lube and grease analysis, an area that requires specific and specialized expertise in method development.
AMETEK Process Instruments has broadened its line of 5100 Series gas analyzers to include a portable version. The Model 5100P provides simple, easy-to-use moisture analysis using tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS).
AMETEK Drexelbrook has expanded its point level offering with a fully certified SIL2 safety point level switch that provides highly reliable overfill protection, specifically designed for applications in which there is a high cost of failure.
AMETEK Drexelbrook now offers a Density Compensation Module (DCM) for its Universal IV In-Line Water Cut Monitor (CM). The module automatically compensates for density changes that may occur in the composition of products and reduces the calibration requirements due to those changes.
Ametek Drexelbrook has added the Clear Line Fluid Detector to its level and analytical measurement product line. The Clear Line is designed specifically for pipe and tank applications in hydrocarbon, pharmaceutical, chemical and food processing industries, where it monitors the presence or absence of fluid in a pipe to provide complete assurance that the tank is empty.
The Model 40 Pneumatic Indicating Controller from AMETEK PMT Products complies with EPA’s “Go Green” Initiative under the new Clean Air Act Standards. The Model 40 meets the QUAD “O” standards’ requirement of an exhaust rate not to exceed 6.0 standard cubic feet per hour.
AMETEK HCC Interconnect Technologies has appointed PMR Global Inc. as a distributor of its high-temperature, high-pressure (HTHP) bulkheads, PEEK and glass-to-metal sealed feed thrus and other highly engineered interconnection devices to the oil and gas industry.
