How to Measure Pressure and Record Pressure in Gas Service Lines

Natural gas from the mains is delivered to a home or business via a service line. The gas typically flows between 60 and 0.25 psi / 4 bar to 20 mbar. When the gas reaches a customer’s meter, it may need to pass through another regulator to reduce its pressure to under 0.25 / 4 bar.

Accurate pressure is essential to maintaining service lines, and AMETEK STCs pressure gauges, pressure calibrators, and pressure recorders are key to maintaining these lines. They can be used to measure the pressure in the pipe.

The nVision reference recorder and the XP2i digital pressure gauge not only measure pressure, but they can also create a digital record of the tests. The nVision and the HPC50 pressure calibrator also have the ability to measure and record temperature, and also safely measure differential pressure with their special DP tared mode. The XP2i has a PSV test mode, which has been specifically designed to test pressure safety valves.
