  • Boosting gas pipelines to optimum levels - Case Study

    As gas pressure drops in the gas pipeline network, the transportation capacity is reduced. Compressor plants are used to boost gas pressure back up to optimum operating levels. Monitoring fuel gas to compressors is typically accomplished with an orifice or turbine meter. Because both of these methods are subject to fouling and failure, they require frequent skilled maintenance in order to ...

  • Solar Heating Reduces Energy Costs at Gaylord - Case Study

    Gaylord Hospital’s quiet 500-acre setting had its drawbacks. There were no natural gas pipelines leading to the area, and installing them would be cost-prohibitive. Instead, Gaylord relied on oil heat, an almostequally daunting expense, especially in Connecticut winters. But then Mark Veere, facility manager for Gaylord, came up with an idea for cheaper energy without digging up those ...
