Daniel Differential Pressure Products


Depend on Daniel differential pressure products for reliable fiscal flow measurement. This metering technology is fast, time-proven and allows removal and/or replacement of orifice plates without line-flow interruption. These instruments meet requirements and recommendations for accurate measurement and are certified by the most important energy trade associations and regulatory agencies in the world. They're available in most sizes, pressure ratings and connections for users in gas transmission, gas pipeline, gas distribution and other energy and process industries. Differential pressure products contain a restriction that reduces the flow of product through that section of the pipeline. As fluid approaches the restriction, pressure increases slightly and drops suddenly as the restriction is passed. Established procedures and calculations allow the flow rate to be inferred from the differential in pressure. Differential pressure products are the most widely used means of fiscal flow measurement for natural gas. Daniel has been manufacturing differential pressure flow meters since its inception more than 70 years ago. Daniel delivers differential pressure products with outstanding quality and supported with the most technically knowledgeable expert staff in the industry. Differential pressure products from Daniel are found in all corners of the globe and include the most complex measurement systems as well as routine applications.
