Are you tired of wasting time sending an operator to manually open or close the gas line? Our Pulse Bypass Odorization System is an automatic option.
It was a typical week so far in the reg shop, and business had been steady so far for spring. Steve, the Regional Engineer, was in town and was set to arrive momentarily to get Rob’s advice with next year’s station designs. Rob was recently promoted to Operations Manager but he didn’t quite feel like he had enough experience yet, and was a bit uneasy about his new position. Steve on the other hand, was a seasoned P. Eng, known for making great recommendations that have successfully improved efficiency. Rob was looking forward to working with him for the first time and was hopeful for some great ideas for future improvements.

A continuation from “Rockin RABO Meter” blog…
A quick recap, back in January Joe and his buddy Daryl were excited to get their hands on the new RABO (Rotary-All-By-One) meter by Elster Honeywell. Their current stock of Elster meters was missing something…based on experience from past sites:

Well, maybe not a billion pieces... but there is not a key left on the keyboard, that's for sure.
Joe, the natural gas field technician, is in a real pickle.
"Get a load of this!" He can hear his co-workers yelling back at the office while laughing at Joe's misfortune.
"Ugh," he groans.
The dog ate my homework, echoes in his head. But his version of the age old excuse is actually true, he thought, the pipe broke my laptop.
I know, you have questions.
How did the pipe break Joe's laptop? Well, the problem is simple and complicated all at the same time.

Gas pressure is dropping off in an area of the city you’re living and working in, if it is not fixed that whole area will be left with no natural gas. A field technician discovers one of the pilot controlled regulators has frozen off. This is not good! To fix this problem it’s going to take additional man hours, further monitoring, and could potentialy damage the regulator pilots.
