Tony Tielen, Vice President of Honeywell Process Solutions’ Engineered Field Solutions division said the USM GT400 ultrasonic flowmeter helps to reduce the amount of effort needed to maintain pipeline metering, “which is especially critical today given the skills shortage many oil and gas companies are facing as veteran engineers retire.”
“As the natural gas industry continues expanding, companies have a tighter margin of error when it comes to lowering operating and capital costs, improving uptime and reducing risks,” Tielen said.
“Accuracy is the key to staying within those margins, and the USM GT400 uses a unique blend of multi-path measuring technology, field-proven electronics, sophisticated diagnostics and a user-friendly interface to achieve true metering intelligence.”
“Compliant with CEESmaRT technology – a secure, cloud-based solution for condition-based monitoring – the USM GT400 provides stability during flow perturbations thanks to its direct-path technology with six measuring paths on three levels. The paths are arrayed in an “X” pattern in horizontal planes. This orientation enables measurement of swirl, cross-flow and asymmetry, as well as transparent path velocity weighting per the Gauss-Chebyshev profile model for compressible fluids.”
