Gas flow measurement in extreme environments
15 April 2016
Morgan Advanced Materials now has the capability to develop gas flow transducers which remain accurate in harsh environments subject to extreme temperatures and the presence of highly corrosive chemicals.
Drawing on its knowledge and experience in gas transducer technology used within a range of applications, Morgan has producing a range of sensors which are operational within a greater range of temperature extremes. For example, its latest gas flow transducers can work within a temperature range of -50ºC to 250ºC. This greater tolerance to extreme temperatures and harsh environments makes the tranducers suitable for use within oil and gas exploration as well as bulk gas meters for industrial applications. In addition, Morgan’s capability within very low temperature sensing means that it has been able to test and measure the flow of cryogenic fluids down to -175°C.
Morgan’s selection of materials are thermally stable and corrosion resistant, enabling transducers to operate under high temperature as well as in the presence of aggressive gaseous acids. Perhaps more significant, however, is Morgan’s work in minimising zero flow offset, which ensures a good level of calibrating transducers accordingly in response to fluctuations in temperature. Within the next few months, this capability will enable Morgan to deliver standard solutions for the wider industrial market or, indeed, for any other application where there is a requirement to accurately measure large quantities of high temperature fluids or gas.
