ELECTRONICS: Michell Instruments has been working with a leading energy company to develop a unique control solution for their natural gas storage site. The company required total security in its hydrocarbon dew-point readings, so Michell developed the Twin-Condumax II Sampling System to provide this with complete confidence.
Employing two Condumax II explosion proof hydrocarbon dew-point analyzers means that there is always the reassurance of a reference instrument to confirm readings. The other advantage to this system is that it can be used continually, with no interruption in measurements caused by routine maintenance or other potential disruptions.
The system has been custom designed to meet the specific needs of the user and Michell was able to satisfy the customer’s enhanced pipeline safety requirements by accommodating the required controls within the architecture of the analyzer. An additional regulator and sample line have also been added to the system to provide a supply for use in the customers’ labs.
Condumax is recognized by many national and multinational companies involved in the production, storage and distribution of natural gas as the benchmark instrument with which to reliably record the hydrocarbon dew point of natural gas.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
