How a Thermal Mass Flowmeter Helped a Mud Logging Contractor Meet Emissions Requirements
Sept. 9, 2014
Accurate surface logging flare gas measurement presents a challenging environment for any flowmeter. It must be able to accurately measure the extremely low flow rates within the 5 percent of reading requirement.

The mud logging service company engineers contacted Fluid Components International (FCI) for a possible solution. After analyzing the process requirements, the applications team at FCI recommended the company’s ST100 Series thermal mass gas flowmeter (Figure 2), which provides acceptable accuracy at low flow rates combined with a turndown far in excess of 100:1. The meter also includes integral data logging, and the meter’s insertion style probe offered low pressure drop.
