Original Press Release:
Explosion-proof I/P Transducer Outperforms New EPA Regulations for Low Emissions in Oil & Gas Industry
AMHERST, NH, USA – On August 16, 2012, the US Environmental Protection Agency published the following final rule: Oil and Gas Sector New Source Performance Standards and National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutant Reviews – (EPA-HQ-OAR-2010-0505). Under this rule, continuous bleed natural gas-driven pneumatic controllers between the wellhead and natural gas processing plant or oil pipeline must have a bleed rate not greater than 6 scfh. The industry has until October 15, 2013 to be in compliance.
The ControlAir model 950XP explosion-proof I/P Transducer with Natural Gas option, with a bleed rate of only 3 scfh, comes in at HALF the allowable rate. This model has FM, CSA, and ATEX approvals for use with natural gas, and comes with a tapped exhaust and sealed conduit.
The 950XP is also extremely accurate and durable. Its internal feedback design results in overall accuracy of 0.1% of span. It is not affected by vibration and change of mounting position. It is available with preset output ranges of 3-15, 3-27, and 6-30 psig. It is also available with a field selectable option, allowing the ability to change output range in the field.
