"Three Steps to accurate gas Metering Heaven" published in Gas International
Bob Thomson's article "Three Steps to accurate gas metering heaven" was published in the January / February 2013 edition of Gas International.
The article identifies the three key areas to focus on when minimising uncertainties in gas measurement.

Service Focus: Calibration Gases and Specialty Gases
EffecTech, through its UKAS accredited calibration laboratory, provides gas mixtures of the highest conformity in terms of traceability, accuracy and stability. We ensure you receive the best solution to your nominal concentration, blend tolerance and analytical uncertainty requirements. Accredited analytical methods are used to provide calibration certificates of the highest standard available in the industry.
|Standard delivery for hydrocarbon mixtures is 2 – 3 weeks and sulphur mixtures is 4 – 5 weeks delivered to UK or ex works Worldwide.
|Express delivery for hydrocarbon mixtures only is 1 week delivered to UK or ex works Worldwide. This is due to our new state-of-the-art gravimetric production facility coupled with our ISO 17025 accredited calibration laboratory at the same site.
|No cylinder rental charge. The cylinder is purchased outright initially with the first mixture and refilled by us when required at a lower cost. Cylinder pressure tests are included and we will arrange this service at no extra cost.|
|Calibration Gases, Gas Analysis and Site Calibration|
EffecTech has entered into a 5 year partnership with Shell Global Solutions to provide and co-ordinate a global gas Proficiency Testing (PT) scheme according to ISO 17043 standards. EffecTech will prepare and certify reference gases at their UK laboratory and send them “blind” to Shell laboratories located at their LNG terminals throughout the world.
Express delivery for bespoke hydrocarbon mixtures only is 1 week delivered to UK or ex works Worldwide. For mixtures held in stock, this time can be further reduced to only 2 days. This is due to our new state-of-the-art gravimetric production facility coupled with our ISO 17025 accredited calibration laboratory at the same site.
Standard analysis – results within 48 hours of sample arriving at our ISO 17025 accredited laboratory – for hydrocarbon and sulphur analysis
Gas Quality Measurements - Our ISO 17020 accredited inspection and ISO 17025 accredited site calibrations will identify system problems and quantify uncertainties in calorific value and carbon emission factors needed to fully comply with fiscal, contractual and the EU Emissions Trading Scheme.
Flow Measurements - Gas flow uncertainties are the dominant factor in the energy equation and regular validations will minimise mis-measurements and un-accounted for gas.
Total Energy - One stop shop for ISO 17025 accredited gas flow and gas quality measurement validations and calibrations.
Effectech is an independent specialist company providing accredited inspection, calibration and testing services to the energy and power industries for gas quality, flow and total energy metering. Our highly trained and experienced staff provide fast and effective solutions to your fiscal, regulatory, contractual, safety and environmental gas measurement obligations. Find out more
