Wireless multi-gas monitors
serve wide applications range
BM 25 Multi-Gas Monitoring Systems are now available in wireless configuration.
Designed to serve a wide range of applications, BM 25
simultaneously detects up to five gases and can include
up to 30 devices in a standard network.
Via MESH topology, the instruments wirelessly connect peer-to-peer. This allows each device in a network
to receive, send, and relay data. Should a device fail or an
obstruction occur, communication automatically re-routes
to allow the network to remain in operation, or routes
around line-of-sight obstacles to form multiple networks.
When an obstruction is removed, communication quickly
reverts back to one network.
BM 25 Wireless is powered by a NiMH battery back. It
delivers up to 170 hr of continuous run time and is compatible with Detcon Model X-40 controller. Standard features
include STEL and TWA values plus four-month datalogging.

Pressure transmitters use 5,000% less energy than other MVTs
JT400 MultiVariable Pressure Transmitters are newly introduced and declared to “use 5,000% less energy than traditional MVTs. Announced as “the first truly autonomous MVT,” models offer outstanding pipeline monitoring and measurement accuracy — reportedly 20-times that of traditional designs. Especially applicable in remote locations, models are
compatible with all pipeline equipment and can be installed to replace existing transmitters or on new natural gas wells.
JT400, in an explosionproof housing, offers analog/digital I/O, a local USB port, and up to 12-year battery life with
no recharging needed. Besides its notable efficiency, the multivariable pressure transmitters are solar powered to operate up to 200 days without sunlight. They log data on 15-min averages up to 30 days for periodic transmission or local
Among JT400 features: intrinsically safe and explosionproof, plus ability to go 200 days without servicing — compared
to four days for conventional MVTs. The transmitters are also offered with optional wireless operation capable of up to
8 years autonomy, automatic protocol detection, MODBUS protocol on RS-485 and RS-232 interface at high data rates.
The new instruments are particularly applicable in the current natural gas exploration boom — where much of it is
still extracted with traditional wells — many of them in remote areas.
The new MVT’s manufacturer declares “ultimately, JT400 offers significant cost savings to well owners while providing
near real-time gas flow data to pipeline managers.”

New optical flow meters
made for flare gas metering
Focus 2.0 Optical Flow Meters were introduced this month at the Global Petroleum Show
to meet flare gas metering challenges.
Focus 2.0 is designed to provide high
accuracy and dependability in a robust
low-maintenance package. It is specifically designed for gas flaring applications and uses Laser 2 Focus Velocim-etry Technology. This enables oil and gas
companies to accurately measure flow rates.
Designs are CSA-rated intrinsically safe, measure
0.1 to 150 m/s, and are ± 2.5% accurate over -40° to +100°C.
They include user-friendly software with a Wizard mode for
easy step-by-step parameters configuration.
Focus 2.0 needs only one installation point in a gas line. It
takes less than 3 hr to install under normal circumstances —
performed without entire system shutdown.
