While the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are all the rage these days, the sensors monitoring industrial processes have long had microprocessors to report more than what they are supposed to sense—such as pressure transmitters measuring pressure. Through digital communications, they also communicate their configuration and current settings, diagnostics, […]

In oil & gas production, lost and unaccounted for (LUAF) production is: …the difference of the physical inputs and the physical outputs of the pipeline system… A “LOSS” occurs whenever the physical inputs are greater than outputs of the pipeline system. Flow measurement is a critical component in measuring for losses and for accurate custody […]
