Engineers who need to optimize boiler efficiency for electric power generation will find the MT100 and ST102A Multipoint Thermal Mass Flow Meters from Fluid Components International (FCI) help them accurately measure recycled hot air from stack gases in order to reduce the consumption and cost of fuel.
The accurate, repeatable flow measurement of air and gases is critical to the safe, efficient and cost-effective operation of turbomachinery and related equipment in the electric power generation, oil/gas production/refining and other industries. Choosing the wrong air/gas flow meter sensing technology can have significant consequences.
A leading European-based marine terminal operator with locations on every major continent is responsible for the managing, handling, storing and distribution of large quantities of oil and gas, as well as refined petrochemicals, which serve industries and consumers around the globe. The company’s thousands of employees are highly trained and are focused on the safe, reliable and efficient storage of large quantities of bulk products at each of its locations.
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)® Code 30 defines safeguards to reduce the hazards associated with the storage, handling, and use of flammable and combustible liquids. In the USA, NFPA codes are recognized and enforceable under OSHA and many state and local regulations.
A major municipal wastewater treatment plant in Scandinavia was incrementally upgrading and converting the plant’s control system from a traditional analog-based system (e.g. 4-20 mA) to PROFIBUS-based digital bus communications. The plant was very successful using, and has installed, FCI constant power technology thermal flow meters, Models AF88 and ST98, in the aeration lines for many years. Can FCI help them convert and upgrade the aeration flow control to PROFIBUS utilizing the same constant power technology thermal flow meters?
Chlorinators are a frequently used system for water disinfection in municipal and industrial water treatment processes.
The air flow into the aeration basins at a major wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) located in Northeastern USA were continuously running at maximum flow resulting in significant, and excessive, energy cost and excess wear and tear on the aeration blowers.
Lack of sufficient straight pipe run made it impossible to successfully apply the preferred magnetic flow meter (magmeter) to accurately measure the flow of raw sewage.
Knowing that aeration requirements consume 50 to 60 percent of a wastewater treatment plant's (WWTP) energy bill is one thing. Knowing exactly how and when to tweak aeration output to optimize activated sludge process efficiency with minimal energy waste is an entirely different story. Here are several key considerations on using precise air-flow measurement to reach that sweet spot with greater consistency and cost-efficiency.
The value of ozone as a disinfection agent is well understood in water treatment plants (WTPs). So too, is its cost. Getting maximum value from an ozone investment requires accurate measurement to assure proper disinfection levels without wasteful overuse of the precious gas. Here are multiple ways thermal dispersion mass flow meters deliver precise readings with lower installation and maintenance costs.
FCI gas mass flow meters are used in pipe diameters from 1/4 inch [6 mm] to over 99 inches [2500 mm]. From small dosing lines, to fuel gas feed lines, to mid-size aeration lines to large stacks and flare gases, FCI mass flow meters, flow switches and level switches are installed and working with superior accuracy and reliability day-in and day-out. FCI product technologies include thermal dispersion and Coriolis.
FCI products deliver accuracy and reliability to the world's most demanding processes and industries including chemical, oil and gas, power and energy, water and wastewater, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, nuclear power, aerospace, and many more.
Where product pedigree and instrument reliability cannot be left to chance, FCI offers the most reliable selection of non-moving part sensing solutions from off-the-shelf devices to custom engineered systems.
Complimenting FCI product leadership is a world class Flow and Level Calibration Facility in which all calibrations are performed in liquids or gases utilizing only N.I.S.T. traceable equipment and instrumentation. We are proud of our quality systems that meet the requirements of MIL-STD-45662A, ANSI/NCSL Z-540 and ISO EN17025.
