2Red Seal Measurement Greenwood, SC Refined fuel and industrial meters for worldwide applicationsTotal Area – 24.4 acresTotal Buildings – 120,00 ft2(Production 110K , Offices 10K)Employees – 54
3RED SEAL MEASUREMENT Home of Liquid Measurement Systems Neptune brand positive displacement flowmeters, trusted since 1892 in critical industrial processes and all stages of petroleum and LPG custody transfer, have an established reputation for accuracy and dependability
4New Extended Warranty on all Neptune PD Meters Red Seal Measurement is proud to offer the Neptune product line. Because we’re confident that our meters are the best in the business, we’re extending the warranty on all of our positive displacement meters to three years from the date of installation (or 42 months from date of shipment).There are no restrictions on quantity or configuration, and no requirement to buy additional components. We value the trust you’ve placed in our products. Let Neptune meters repay that trust with the peace of mind that guaranteed quality can provide.

8MP Oscillating Piston Meters Only 2 moving partsHydraulically floating piston does not contact the chamber surfaces during operationReplaceable, calibrated measuring element – easily serviced without removing meterSimple construction - no special knowledge or tools requiredTolerant of low-viscosity, abrasive, nonlubricating compressed gasNituff coating reduces friction and protects from particulate damageHigh torque for both mechanical and electronic registers
9Type S Nutating Disc Meters Proven accurate and reliable for over a centuryVirtually unaffected by viscosity or flow profile disturbancesVery tolerant of suspended solids that can stall other flowmeter typesPressure up to 150 psi, temperature to 250 degrees FCan be used with mechanical or electronic registers
10Meters For Special Applications Ink / High PressureAccurate measurementof ink consumption in printing pressesVLF - Very Low FlowDesigned to measure the flow of light fuel or diesel oil

12Technologies used by competitors Blocking RotorOval Gear
13Blocking Rotor - Disadvantages 13 moving partsA new base meter is required to replace measuring elementRemove meter from line to rebuildComplicated internal construction with timing gearsSpecial tools requiredHigh pressures can cause product slippage
14Oval Gear - Disadvantages 2 moving gears with two bearings eachGears in contact with each other and subject to wearPlastic gears wear faster, which lead to damage soonerTight tolerances between gears make meter very susceptible to foreign material, which can cause immediate lockup or gear damage
15Metering Technologies Used in RSM Meters Nutating DiscOscillating PistonCoriolis Mass Flow
16Nutating Disc Proven accurate and reliable for over a century Unaffected by viscosity of flow profile disturbancesTolerant of suspended solids that can stall other meter typesWithstands pressure up to 150 psi and temperature to 250° FWorks with mechanical or electronic register
17Oscillating Piston 2 moving parts Positive displacement meter Hydraulically floating piston does not contact the chamber surfaces during operationEasily serviceable because its simple construction requires no special knowledge or toolsTested under field conditions to optimize designDual case design
18Oscillating Piston (continued) Measuring element is replaceable and doesn’t require the meter to be removed from lineComponents undergo strengthening treatment to increase durabilityTolerant of low viscosity, abrasive, non-lubricating compressed gasNituff coating reduces friction and protects from particulate damageWorks with mechanical and electronic registers
19How an Oscillating Piston works Capillary action maintains seal of liquid between piston and chamber wallGroove in skirt bottom retains cushion of liquid to lift pistonInlet pressure lifts piston, reducing dragProfiles in the piston top break surface tension to reduce dragHydraulically floating piston does not contact the chamber surfaces during operation
20Roller and diaphragm are the only wear parts Measuring ChamberAll components – piston skirt and top, wall cover and floor – have pressure relief portsRoller and diaphragm are the only wear partsRelationship between piston spindle, roller and diaphragm prevents contact between skirt and chamber wall
21Coriolis Mass Flow Meters First introduced in 1978, they are an established technology in process industries.Highly accurate flowmeter technologyDirect mass measurementIncreased efficiencyThey reduceLost productLost timeLost money
22Why Measure Mass? Volume varies with temperature Mass is a primary measurement and remains the same
23Coriolis Mass Flow Meter Drive CoilTubesFlow DividerMeasurement CoilsMass Flowmeter Components
24Mass Flow OperationWith no liquid flowing, the drive coil causes the tubes to vibrate parallel to each other (in phase).
25Mass Flow OperationProduct flow causes the ends of the tubes to vibrate out of phase. The sensor coils measure this phase difference, allowing calculation of mass.
26Measurements Available from Coriolis Meters The following values may also be obtained from the meter or calculated from other valuesDensityFluid TemperatureNet VolumeSpecific GravityGross Volume (mass/density)
27Accurate & Consistent Technology +/- 10:1% ErrorThe accuracy of a Coriolis meter is stated as percentage of the rate measurement plus or minus a zero stability.The zero shift error becomes the dominant portion of the overall accuracy at the lower end of the flow range.Alternatively, the accuracy may be stated as a percentage of rate for flow rates above some low flow threshold and as a percentage of flow range for flow rates below the threshold.It is important to remember that the zero stability or zero shift error, is a constant error regardless of flowrate.% Flow RateHolds accuracy to lower flow rates (for meter size) than other metering technologies - less unmetered product
28Defining the Ideal Metering System 100% accurate (no product loss)Works at any flow rateUnaffected by temperature, pressure, or densityEasy to install and useNo wear / no maintenanceLow cost of ownershipRugged and reliableRegisters data flawlesslyWireless from deck to cab and cab to office
