Precise gas flow measurement is critical for emissions reporting compliance and for proactive monitoring of packing condition. However it can also play an essential role in identifying leakage problems, their costs and the relative value of proposed solutions. A transmission plant in the Four Corners region was experiencing significant gas leakage from packing cases in an Ingersoll Rand RDS two-throw compressor. However,maintenance personnel had no reliable way of measuring how much gas was escaping. They were therefore unable to determine the severity of the problem or evaluate the costs of repairs or upgrades required to reduce leakage.
