Manufacturer: General Electric
Product Name: XGF868i
Product Description: Ultrasonic Flare Gas Flowmeter
Category: Flow,Ultrasonic
Profile: FOUNDATION Field Device
Date: 7/5/2020
More Information: The DigitalFlow XGF868i ultrasonic flow meter uses the patented Correlation Transit-Time™ technique, digital signal processing, an accurate method of calculating molecular weight.  Add to these features the inherent advantages of ultrasonic flow measurement—reliability with no routine maintenance, high accuracy, fast response, wide rangeability—and the DigitalFlow XGF868i flowmeter is the clear choice for flare gas applications. The DigitalFlow XGF868i may be used for standard volumetric or hydrocarbon mass flow measurement.  Flow measurement is independent of gas properties, and does not interfere with the flow in any way.  The DigitalFlow XGF868i meter achieves a rangeability of 4000 to 1, measuring velocities from 0.1 to 328 ft/s (0.03 to 100 m/s) in standard range, in both directions, while the Extended Range version measures velocities to 394 ft/s (120 m/s) in one direction. In steady or rapidly changing flow, it measures in pipes from 4 in to 120 in (100 mm to 3 m) in diameter.  For base load operation, the volumetric flow in flares is often in the range 0.1 to 1 f/s (0.03 to 0.3 m/s) and the XGF868i flare gas flow meter improves the accuracy over that range, but still measures at high velocity during facility relief or upset conditions.

Device Support File Usage

FieldComm Group (FCG) makes available to its members and to the public certain device driver (DD) files, in various forms, that have passed certain tests conducted by or through FCG. The DD files are, or are created from, submissions to FCG by FCG members and are provided by FCG AS IS. FCG disclaims all liability for the accuracy, suitability or use of the DD files. Each member creating DD files has its own policies regarding supporting use of those files, and may, for instance support use of DD object code files, but not DeviceInfo or other files. While FCG is under no obligation to provide support for use of any DD files, FCG welcomes all inquiries on the subject and will often be able to assist.
