There are many applications where the accurate, repeatable measurement of gas density is essential. From blending of fuel, to product quality, to Hydrogen purity and replacement in utility turbines, Yokogawa's family of Gas Density products allow you to make accurate measurements with superior reliability and ease of maintenance and operability.
The Model GD402 gas density analyzer and Model GD40 detector not only provide continuous measurement of gas density, but also several other valuable parameters, including specific gravity and molecular weight. The GD40 detector is designed for intrinsically safe and flameproof, explosion protected applications. It is designed to be virtually maintenance free for all accepted applications.
The Model GD402 is a rugged microprocessor-based converter designed in two versions to meet both general area and explosion-proof application requirements. In addition to the display of several key data items, the converter also provides the choice of three different means for calibration: automatic; semi-automatic and one-touch manual operation.
There are a number of suppliers of oil and fat products used for edible purposes. These products include, but are not limited to olive oil, peanut oil, soybean oil, sunflower oil, lard, shortening, butter, and margarine. The raw materials for these products include animal by-products, fleshy fruits (palm and olive), and oilseeds.

The top gas generated at the top of a distillation column in a petroleum refinery's fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) is used to produce gasoline and LPG. The GD402 Gas Density Meter features an intrinsically safe and explosion-proof design, fast response, and a dust-proof, anti-corrosive, and flame-proof construction.
In the manufacturing of Glass-Fiber wool for insulation a melt of a material such as glass is inductively heated at a stage intermediate an initial liquefying stage and a refining stage. Induction heating is the process of heating an electrically conducting object (usually a metal) by electromagnetic induction, where eddy currents are generated within the metal and resistance leads to Joule heating of the metal.
The U.S. refineries represent approximately 23 percent of the world's petroleum production, and the United States has the largest refining capacity in the world. Petroleum refining is an industry, which is undergoing intense amounts of scrutiny in the United States from regulatory agencies and environmental groups. As a result, releases of pollutants caused by corrosion leaks are becoming a high consequence event.
A major power company in the Southeast decided to replace its hydrogen gas detection system. The current system was unsupported by the manufacturer and failing. The new system would need to duplicate the functionality of the old to minimize the training and impact on the operators. Yokogawa was asked to facilitate the project.
Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), or also known as LP Gas or auto gas, is a mixture of hydrocarbon gases used as a fuel in heating appliances and vehicles, and increasing replacing chlorofluorocarbons as an aerosol propellant and a refrigerant to reduce damage to the ozone layer.

We rolled out the first vibratory gas density meter ten years ago and since then have continued supplying it. The past ten years have seen changes in the target applications and requirements for functions that have made it easier to use.
