GASMICRO™ Electronic Volume Corrector

Electronic volume corrector for natural gas distribution networks.

Galvanic’s GasMicro instrument is a three-in-one measurement device that calculates the corrected volume, according to AGA7 and AGA8. The GasMicro device is ideal for both remote-mount and instrument-mount applications. In the former, the turbine and rotary meter sends an electronic signal to the GasMicro instrument that represents the volume of gas that the meter has measured, and then the GasMicro calculates the corrected volume. In the latter, Galvanic’s instrument is mounted directly to the turbine or rotary gas meter through a mechanical instrument drive and the GasMicro instrument generates the electrical signal that represents the volume of gas that the meter measured. It then calculates the corrected volume. In both scenarios, the GasMicro device logs and stores the resulting data in memory for record keeping, and ultimately, for data distribution.
