Optical Sensors | Spectroscopy | Focus® Optical Flow Meter | Downhole Pressure Temperature System
Our Focus® Optical Flow Meter is used by oil and gas companies around the world to measure and monitor the flow of flare gases in oil production. Flaring is the burning of the waste natural gas associated with oil production, and over 150 billion cubic meters of gas are flared or vented into the atmosphere every year, which is costly to the environment and affects the bottom line of oil companies.
Focus® Optical Flow Meter
- high turndown ratio (0.1 to 150m/s)
- Measurement not affected by gas composition
- Easy to install and maintain
- Reliable and accurate
- Wide selection of enclosure options
- Cost effective
How it works
Based on the “laser-two-focus” method, our optical flow meter technology is the only laser technology to reach industrial flow metering applications.
The method requires the presence of miniature droplets of condensation, lubricants, dust and other impurities in the gas stream for purpose of light scattering and consequently determining the time particles travel from one laser beam to another.
