Pipeline Metering Skids

Valtronics® Solutions designs and builds custom pipeline metering skids for Natural Gas, Natural Gas Liquids and Liquefied Natural Gas in compliance to all Federal, State and Local codes.  Valtronics brings decades of design and operational experience from dozens of major pipeline companies, as well as invaluable instrumentation experience from the industry leaders, to offer optimized solutions in the measurement and regulation arena.  From simple single meter run designs to complex proving or control systems, Valtronics has a solution.

Most meter station designs start with flow rate. It is important to maintain an uninterrupted flow of gas and to take into consideration the maximum and minimum flows needed. Various metering technologies are available including ultrasonic and Coriolis meters. Multiple meter runs are used when the maximum design flow rates are required for turndown between maximum and minimal flows. Automated valves are used to open or close a meter run as required to maintain flow rates through an individual meter within a range recommended by the manufacturer. Pressure and temperature transmitters, temperature thermowells, test thermowells and a chromatography probe when using an ultrasonic meter should be included.

Gas quality needs to be taken in to account. Many companies use a filter-separator before the meter station and will do continuous gas sampling using a Mustang Sampling Analytically Accurate® system. Usually a gas analyzer is installed to monitor gas for H2S, O2, N2, CO2 and other contamination that exceed quality requirements.

For safe access and maneuvering around equipment Valtronics offers solutions such as handrails, access platforms, walkways and stairs.
