The measurement portfolio is for the midstream natural gas sector and is designed to provide reliable and accurate volume and energy value measurement across a wide range of applications. Supported by a complete portfolio of gas measurement technologies, including a full range of temperature and pressure transmitters and flow computers, Honeywell's midstream gas measurement offering brings together three products:

The TwinSonicplus two-in-one ultrasonic gas meter delivers increased confidence and operational integrity for custody transfer measurement. It combines the Q.Sonicplus ultrasonic meter with an additional independent measurement for verification in the same body for improved confidence, greater efficiency and more reliable operations. A six-path configuration for the primary measurement is designed to provide detailed flow profile measurement, superb noise immunity, and unrivaled pressure and velocity abilities. In-built verification improves confidence and reliability, reducing risk while saving users up to $50,000 for each meter against using two meters in series.

The Encal 3000 gas chromatograph is specially designed for natural gas energy measurements to deliver accuracy and low running costs. It uses micro electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) and capillary columns and delivers high repeatability and compositional accuracy to enable users to improve both heating value and volumetric custody transfer measurements. Optimized for varying shale gas compositions the EnCal provides gas-composition measurements from <900 to >1150 BTU/scf using a single, moderate BTU calibration gas. The injector, columns and detectors are designed to last for the life of product, making it easy for even inexperienced technicians to support.

The GasLab Q2 online gas quality analyzer provides fast, continuous analysis of natural gas’ calorific value, Wobbe index and methane number to optimize billing, efficiency and emissions. It is the ideal solution for anyone whose operations and emissions are adversely impacted by fuel quality variations. Requiring no routine maintenance and able to reduce operational expenses (OPEX) by up to 70% against gas chromatographs and calorimeters. It supports a wide range of uses including natural gas feedstock blending; point-of-use custody transfer; real-time quality control of the fuel mix for gas turbines in power plants; and improved combustion control for kilns, metal processing, and glass industries.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
