Understanding How Ultrasonic Flow Meters Work Ultrasonic Flow Meters are a non-invasive flow technology that uses sensors/transducers to generate ultrasonic sound waves that are directed into the flow and used to determine flow velocities. On-board flow computers use the given velocity and the current flow profile of the pipe to…

Why Rupture Disc Replacement Isn’t Always Straightforward So, you need to order a new rupture disc? As long as you tell the sales rep what pressure the tag states, the disc size, and the materials of construction, you’ll get an identical disc…right? Unfortunately, it is not quite that easy. Disc…

Understanding How Thermal Mass Flow Meters Work A thermal mass flow meter is a precision instrument that measures gas flow entirely differently, eliminating the need for pressure and temperature correction. Thermal mass flow meters measure the heat transfer as the gas flows past a heated surface. The gas molecules create…

Benefits of Rupture Disc Standardization Standardization can provide benefits throughout your operation from the design engineers who create the rupture discs’ data sheets to the inventory managers who have to maintain obsolete inventory and hundreds of duplications in the warehouse. As a buyer of safety relief devices, have you ever…
