Rethinking Gas Analytics: Folded Path TDLs
In chemical plants, petrochemical plants, and refineries, tunable diode lasers (TDLs) are becoming an increasingly common sight. However, installation locations and conditions encountered in some processes have limited their application range. A portfolio of folded path TDLs with a unique range of adaptions has opened the door to measurement opportunities previously considered impossible.

The Practical Impact of the Use of Alternative Carrier Gases for Gas Chromatography
Helium is currently the carrier gas of choice for most gas chromatographers in the US because of its desirable chemical and physical properties. However, it is a non-renewable natural resource whose availability is becoming limited. In contrast, alternative carrier gases such as hydrogen and nitrogen are in nearly unlimited supply. This article investigates the relative advantages and disadvantages of these two substitutes for helium.

American School of Gas Management Technology

This year, the School is proud to introduce a new educational track that provides the fundamentals for the first time student.   This new curriculum is designed to educate a new generation of industry personnel on various topics from basic measurement principles to design and installation of measurement facilities.  

The School also offers extensive training on NGL (natural gas liquids) measurement.  The NGL track was introduced last year, and continues to a popular program for all measurement personnel.   With increased emphasis on NGL measurement within the new Shale Gas plays, the ASGMT continues to provide innovative training classes for today’s industry.  The new NGL track will include “Fundamentals of Natural Gas Liquids Measurement”, Fundamentals of Volume Measurement by Turbine meter”, Fundamentals of Mass Measurement by Coriolis Meter”, Fundamentals of Densitometers and Pycnometers”, Fundamentals of a Liquid Meter Station Design”, and “Auditing Liquid NGL Facilities”. 

These courses will provide an essential basic background in NGL and Liquid measurement to both those new to the Gas Industry as well as those experienced Gas Technicians who are now becoming acquainted with the increased production of NGL’s in the Shale Play areas.  The school will be held September 22-25, 2014 in Houston, Texas.
