Boiler steam drum level control is critical in electrical power generation. Too high a level can mean water aspirating into the steam lines and causing damage to the turbine generator blades downstream. Too low a level can cause the boiler to dry and overheat. In a Power magazine article, Controlling Boiler Level When Operating Conditions […]

In upstream oil & gas production, flow measurements are critical for determining the health and longevity of the producing and injection wells. Many technologies such as multiphase flow meters and differential pressure (DP) measurements can be used. In a Processing magazine article, Coriolis Flowmeters for Wet Gas Measurement, Emerson’s Justin Hollingsworth describes another alternative, Coriolis […]
