Honeywell Expands Offering of Integrated Measurement Solutions to help optimize U.S Natural Gas Distribution

Honeywell Elster® RABO meter now available with direct-mounted Honeywell Mercury Instruments volume correctors to provide accurate flow measurement data
HOUSTON, October 10, 2017 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) Process Solutions (HPS) today announced it has expanded its portfolio of integrated gas measurement solutions in the U.S. The company is now offering the standard Honeywell Elster® RABO meter combined with a mechanical totalizer or instrument drive (ID), along with the direct-mounted Honeywell Mercury Instruments TCI temperature corrector or EC 350 volume corrector. This combination will deliver advanced measurement, control, and analysis technology from a single source, and thus reduce costs and integration challenges for customers.



Today, there is growing pressure on natural gas companies to deliver more energy, increase profitability, and minimize financial losses. Meanwhile, operators must reduce operating expenses (OPEX) and tightly control capital budgets. One remedy to this situation is optimization of the distribution infrastructure used to deliver natural gas to households and commercial and industrial (C&I) consumers.

“Honeywell provides end-to-end smart metering solutions for everything from wellhead to burner tip applications,” said Steven Johnson, Honeywell’s gas business development manager for North America. “Our advanced Elster and Mercury Instruments technologies help gas transmission and distribution companies increase efficiency, protect assets, save money, and safeguard the environment. In addition, our products and services enable superior performance and optimal maintenance that extends the life of critical investments.”

Honeywell’s integrated solutions portfolio provides U.S. natural gas companies with a compact, reliable and accurate gas measurement capability, meeting the fiscal measurement needs of commercial and industrial customers. “As the world market leader in rotary gas meters and the North American leader in gas correction devices, Honeywell is able to offer unsurpassed system integration, software and services from a single, highly qualified vendor,” said Johnson.

The RABO meter and volume correctors are part of Honeywell’s Gas Measurement and Data Management Solution. The newly integrated offering delivers accurate flow measurement data converted to volume at standard condition for use in billing purposes. It includes PTZ correction for commercial and industrial applications optimized for custody transfer.


Available in four sizes, the RABO meter comes in a heavy duty, compact design with a high impact-resistant, index cover aluminum body and impellers. It provides greater rangeability than competitive meters, increased maximum operational pressure (MAOP), low pressure drop enabling flexibility in station design, reduction in hazardous noise for safer operations, reduction in piston speed for longer asset life, and a low cost of ownership. TCI is the most advanced electronic temperature-compensating index available for natural gas rotary meters. This rugged, reliable and exceptionally accurate device is an ideal replacement for mechanical indexes. The EC 350 electronic volume corrector (EVC) offers best-in-class features such as improved accuracy, expanded memory, advanced diagnostics and integrated cellular communications.
