  • Survey of standards related to gas detectors

    Recent events both on- and off-shore shine a bright light on the need for attention to safety and to hazard reduction, prevention, and mitigation. Errant combustible or toxic gases can injure and kill quickly. Therefore, mitigation of these hazards must be fast and sure. Globally, governmental and regional authorities take gas detection and system integration very seriously and require that the ...

  • Follow toxic gas standards for a smoother project

    Toxic gases, such as Hydrogen Sulfide and Sulfur Dioxide, can injure and kill quickly. Therefore, mitigation of these hazards must be fast and sure. The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and other authorities take detection of these gases very seriously. The American National Standards Institute/ American Petroleum Institute (ANSI/API) and ISA industry standards ...

  • How the EPA’s new oil and gas standards will reduce greenhouse gas emissions

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently issued final rules to reduce air pollution at natural gas wells and other sources in the oil and gas industry. The rules—a New Source Performance Standard (NSPS) for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and National Emissions Standards for hazardous air ...

  • Efficiency of a standard gas-turbine power generation cycle running on different fuels

    This paper presents a study of second-law efficiency in a standard Brayton combined cycle power generation, using several paraffinic fuels ranging from methane to heptane. The main objective of the study was to identify a trend with the number of carbon atoms in the compound. In this way, a qualitative criterion can be built to evaluate the properties of poor-quality gas turbine fuels containing ...

  • Primary Standard Gas Flow Calibration—The Only Guarantee of Accuracy

    At Sierra, we have a saying: “An instrument’s accuracy is only as good as its calibration.” The accuracy of your mass flow controller (MFC) is essential in assuring the efficiency, performance, and quality of your flow meter. In many cases, if your instrumentation is not calibrated, then a decline in performance is possible due to ...
