SignalFire used to remotely monitor pressure at natural gas pressure reducing stations

The Gas Integrity Department recently sought Everest Automation’s expertise to tackle monitoring challenges at several problematic natural gas pressure reducing stations throughout their local city. The goal was to observe inlet and outlet pressures at the regulators, utilizing this data to pinpoint the causes of sporadic pressure drops within their distribution network.

The project faced multiple hurdles:

In their search for a viable solution, the customer weighed two options: the SignalFire Pressure Ranger and Madgetech’s more affordable PR1000 pressure datalogger. Despite its higher cost, we highlighted the superior benefits of choosing SignalFire, including:

Convinced by these advantages, the customer proceeded with a sole-source procurement of 60 units, open to expanding the initiative once users gain familiarity with the technology and uncover additional applications for its deployment across the network.
