Utlizing Bootless Regulators at High Pressure Natural Gas Let Down Stations
ATCO is a natural gas distribution company which supplies over 1.1 million customers with energy across Alberta through a network of transmission and distribution systems. Critical components of this network are the pressure let down stations where gas pressures transition from transmission to distribution. Selecting regulators that can properly handle the hundreds of psi pressure drop at gate stations as well as properly maintaining them is crucial in making sure a failure does not result in over pressuring the downstream system. Utilizing Fisher EZH and FL regulators ATCO created extremely safe and reliable operation at numerous distribution stations while reducing their maintenance costs.
