Preface and notes to the 14th edition

Preliminary remarks

The latest (14th) edition of RMG’s “Pocket Book” offers an update on information and products covering gas-pressure control technology and gas safety and measurement engineering. This book a popular, indispensable tool for those who encounter gas pressure regulators and measur- ing devices in their daily work. The RMG Pocket Book contains important technical parameters and explanations of underlying theory. All data and indications stated were valid on the day of publication. However, RMG reserves the right to change parameters without further notice.

Note for planners:

Use the Pocket Book, CD-ROM and RMG website (www.rmg.com) for a provisional pre-selection of RMG products. For more detailed information, go to www.rmg.com/produkte.html or www. rmg.com/download.html. If you still need additional information, ask for our brochures. There are Technical Product Information brochures for all products containing a functional description, dimensional details, measuring-line connection sizes, etc. For example, the brochure RMG 402 is titled: Technical Product Information – Gas Pressure Regulator (Also see pdf files on CD-ROM and the web). In addition please utilize the information and installation guidelines contained in our General Operating Manual for Gas Pressure Regulators and Safety Devices.

Please do not hesitate to contact our engineers should you have any additional questions. Did you know that RMG organises technical seminars to help customers extend their technical knowledge? We wish you success in all your dealings with the latest edition of the RMG Pocket Book.

Stations in the gas infrastructure

Gas regulating and measuring technologies play a central role in all pipeline stations. With increasing transport distances and the ever expanding concentration of regional trans- port networks, the demands on regulating and measuring technologies continue to grow. The RMG GROUP, with its leading position in 20 the regulating and measuriement industry, has a considerable influence on the standards of the worldwide gas infrastructure.

1 Exploration and Delivery Natural gas comes from the well at high pressure and flows into reception stations. From the pressure stations, the products of the RMG GROUP ensure the control of the required pressure level and the preset flow volume. In the reminder of the subsequent

supply chain, the RMG GROUP has the right solution for every conceivable regulating and measuring need.

Transportation In order to use the millions of kilometres of transportation network worldwide (installed at a cost of billions of dollars) as efficiently as possible, natural gas needs to be compressed and then decompressed again and again as necessary along the pipeline. The quality and accuracy afforded by RMG products - supplemented by sophistica- ted RMG automation technology - completely fulfills these needs. 3 Storage In order to ensure a high level of security for the end user, underground storage is increa- singly being exploited locally with pressures of up to 250 bar. The RMG GROUP, with its comprehensive range of products and systems and its vast experience in their application, can maximise the effectiveness of local storage. In addition the RMG GROUP concentrates

Distribution Both at regional or citygate ‘offtakes’ and distribution feeds into the gas network, the broad RMG product line provides a reliable solution for pressure reduction, flow control, pre-heating, and volume/quality measure- ment, as well as the provision of data logging and communication. In addition, the RMG turbo expanders (energy recycling) help in using the existing energy potential of natural gas in an environmentally-friendly way.

5

Utilisation The last step in the process is delivery to industrial and commercial customers as well as private households. For these applications the RMG GROUP offers comprehensive pres- sure regulation and metering solutions. In addition, the RMG GROUP supplies the gas industry with gas trains, gas mixers, butterfly valves and flame arrestors. This can include for example, gas engines in block heat and power plants, which can be powered by natural, bio, mine or sewage gas.

Control and safety equipment

Calculation and selection of gas pressure regulators, safety devices and gas filters

Calculating the flow rate coefficient K G

One of the most important parameters for selecting RMG devices is the so-called flow rate coeffici- ent K G .

22

The K G value is defined in standards DIN EN 334 and DIN EN:

The K G value is equal to the standard flow rate with the final control element fully open and the absolute inlet pressure p u = 2 bar and absolute outlet pressure p d = 1 bar. For natural gas it is ρ b = 0.83 kg/m³ at t = 15 °C. It is measured in m³/(h bar).

The diagram on p. 25 will help in using the following operating parameters:

Min. inlet pressure Max. outlet pressure Max. standard flow rate

to determine the required valve flow rate coefficient K G

Valve flow coefficient K G at sub-critical pressure ratio

The standard flow rate Q b refers to natural gas at ρ b = 0,83 kg/m³ at T b = 273.15 K (t = 0 °C) and p b = 1.01325 bar. The K G value uses an operating gas temperature of 15 °C. • When entering pressures into the equations, use absolute values (generally p + 1 bar). The values in the diagram, however, are gauge pressure.

Control and safety equipment

Calculation and selection of gas pressure regulators, safety devices and gas filters

NOTE

Always make sure the flow rate coefficient of the gas pressure regulator you select is above the value you calculated, so that you can be sure there‘s always a reserve. We recommend always selecting devices with a flow rate coefficient at least 10 % higher than the calculated value.

CAUTION

For gas pressure regulators with internal measuring impulse connections, the down- stream flow velocity (where the outlet pressure is measured) should not exceed approx. 25 m/s. For additional information see “Excerpt from the General Operating Manual – Layout Examples for Gas-pressure Control Systems”.

ICA engineers often use the K v value to indicate the flow capacity of a control element. This value is based on water (ρ = 1,000 kg/m³). The interdependency between K v and K G is ruled by the following equation:

K G = 33,57 K v

in m³/(h ⋅ bar)

Converting standard flow rate Q b to operating flow rate Q m

In the following equations, use the units with the formula symbols:

standard flow rate Q b in m³/h, operating flow rate Q m in m³/h,

absolute pressure p in bar, overpressure p ü in bar, ambient pressure p amb in bar,

temperature at standard conditions T b in K or t in °C

Q m =

p b

t + T b

p

T b

∙ Q b

in m 3 /h

Using general values of p = p ü + p amb , p b = 1.01325 bar, T b = 273.15 K and t = 15 °C results in:

Q m =

1.01325 ∙ (15 + 273.15)

Q

b

= 1.069 ∙

273.15 p ü + p amb

Q

b

p ü + p amb

in m 3 /h

To simplify matters, ambient pressure is often set at approx. p amb = 1 bar (^ 0 – 200 m amsl

approx.). This results (with sufficient accuracy) in an operating flow rate:

(with sufficient accuracy) in an operating flow rate: Q m ≈ Q b p ü +

Q m

Q

b

p ü + p amb

Q

b

p ü + 1

in m 3 /h

For different elevations above mean sea level, use the standard atmospheric pressures indicated

on p. 513 for satisfactory approximations of pressures values (p amb ). A simplified conversion of

the operating flow rate Q m to standard flow rate Q b will then result in: Q b ≈ (p ü + 1) · Q m in m³/h

Determining the pipe size (Ø) and/or flow velocity

Note:

With higher temperatures, it becomes more and more important to include temperature in calculations.

28 Flow velocities may be calculated using the following equation:

w

Q b

DN (d)

p abs

Note:

w = 380

Q b

DN(d) 2 p abs

= Flow velocity in m/s = Standard flow rate of gas in m³/h = Pipe size (Ø) in mm = Absolute pressure of gas in bar (usually p + 1 bar)

The factor 380 refers to an operational gas temperature of about 15 to 20 °C. For different temperatures, correct using the factor.

t gas + 273.15

290

The pipe size (Ø) can be obtained from:

DN (d) =

380 ⋅ Q b w ⋅ p abs
380 ⋅ Q b
w ⋅ p abs

in mm

For w = 25 m/s we obtain:

DN(d) ≈ 3.9 ⋅

Q b p abs

Caution:

When calculating flow velocities w and/or pipe sizes (Ø), always use the actual type of gas that will be in the system. Never use converted values of equivalent gases!
