The gas industry began using telemetry several years ago when suppliers developed technology for monitoring pressure differential in bulk gas systems. Having remote access to information provided great advantages to customers and suppliers, but there has been a hesitancy in some circles to embrace telemetry, perhaps because of unease about costs or technical issues. However, new technologies have been introduced that should alleviate these concerns and motivate widespread acceptance.
Now telemetry can be used with a growing list of specialty gases, including laser, lab and protocol gases, as well as gases used for welding and fabrication, research, and calibration. There is an expanding interest in how telemetry can be integrated into existing systems and designed into new systems to positively impact operations.
