    UPB tests hydrogen-diesel engine efficiency using mass flow meters

    UPB tests hydrogen-diesel engine efficiency using mass flow meters In an effort to reduce carbon emissions from the transportation sector, the European Commission is working to reduce CO2 emissions from transportation by 37.5% over the next 10 years. A promising approach is to focus on developing alternative fuels and technologies to replace greenhouse intensive ones. […]

    High accuracy, low-flow color dosing with Coriolis mass flow meters

    High accuracy, low-flow color dosing with Coriolis mass flow meters Many liquid laundry detergents are easily recognized by their distinct blue color. The addition of such blue coloring and other fluorescing agents adds trace amounts of dye to fabrics, both counteracting discoloration and improving brightness. Challenge: Inaccurate, inefficient pumps lead to noticeable variation Modern blue […]

    Framergy purifies methane from natural gas streams using MOFs and Coriolis mass flow meters

    Framergy purifies methane from natural gas streams using MOFs and Coriolis mass flow meters Metal organic frameworks (MOFs) are a novel class of nanomaterials which are highly effective as a solid adsorbent and utilize their unique “cage-like” structure to trap molecules. Because of these properties, MOFs have been studied for numerous fluid storage, separation, and […]

    KimPro Energy monitors oil and gas methane emissions using portable mass flow meters

    KimPro Energy monitors oil and gas methane emissions using portable mass flow meters In response to the global climate crisis, government regulations on venting flows and leaks are increasing. Standards for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions now require measurements that have historically only been estimated. Challenge: Meeting increasing government regulations KimPro energy needed a new solution […]

    Calibrating in-field PM air samplers with the FP-25

    Calibrating in-field PM air samplers with the FP-25 Flow measurement is critical to air monitoring processes, and quality data requires consistent airflow with minimal fluctuations. This is easy to achieve inside a lab where temperature, air pressure, and humidity are all carefully controlled. Of course, most environmental air monitoring takes place outside, where the instruments […]

    Fast, accurate leak testing using one flow controller

    Fast, accurate leak testing using one flow controller Looking for a fast, accurate way to leak test your system? Whisper low pressure drop controllers provide a convenient, single instrument solution. A standard controller may also work, however stable leakages are best detected when the meter generates minimal pressure drop (line pressure due to frictional resistance). […]

    Measuring flow at subatmospheric pressures

    Measuring flow below atmospheric pressure Measuring flow below atmospheric pressure can be challenging due to changing volumetric flow rates and pressure drop requirements. It is critical to consider operating conditions and device capabilities to ensure your flow meter gives correct readings. In this article, we will discuss the relationship between line pressure, flow rate, and […]
