Custody Transfer Gas Flowmeters
Hoffer Turbine Meters for Power Generation Market
Currently, one of the strongest industrial growth markets is power generation. De-regulation of power and gas utilities in the United States and the increased demand for new power sources in emerging overseas markets have fueled this global expansion.
At the core of this growth, the trend is the ever-increasing use of gas turbine-driven generating systems to produce electric power. Hoffer Flow Controls has a long and successful history in various measurement applications associated with these gas turbine systems.
Every major manufacturer of gas turbines uses our meters for applications that include fuel measurement (gas and liquid), wet NOx emission reduction spray systems, critical cooling water flow, fuel conditioning flows, and condensate flows, to name but a few. In addition, our customized flow meters can be found on offshore power turbines measuring hydraulics.
Custody Transfer Gas Meters
Our “Premier” Series of custody transfer gas meters continue to set the standard for high-performance measurement. Many domestic power utilities have selected our gas turbine flow meters and flow computers as the meter of choice for their natural gas flow applications.
Hoffer supplies complete flow systems to these customers that include meters, meter runs (upstream and downstream piping and flow straightening sections compliant with AGA 3), and flow computers that are AGA 7 and 8 compliant.
In addition to meeting these American Gas Association standards, our systems are used to verify compliance with the continuous emission monitoring rule “Appendix D of CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) 40. See: Standards Criteria
Hoffer International Sales in Power Generation
Our experience in international sales in power generation includes working with multi-national engineering and construction firms to supply flow meters for various applications for new gas turbine power plant projects in the United Kingdom, the Philippines, the Middle East region, and Brazil.
Included in these orders were Hoffer “Premier” natural gas turbine flow meters, similar to the one pictured above, in line sizes 6”, 8”, 10” and 12”. These meters were supplied for critical fiscal and mass-energy balance accounting purposes to precise specifications and tolerances.
Hoffer meters were selected based on our unique ability to readily “tune” our meters to very precisely match flow rate and pressure drop requirements and to provide specific features and services required for each project at competitive prices.
Hoffer’s special features and services for these projects included custom flow meter calibrations on high-pressure natural gas, complete flow metering skid fabrication, densitometer integration, custom protective coatings, and customized electronics enclosures to meet local requirements.
When you need flow meters for your power generation facility, think of Hoffer Flow Controls first! We have the products, experience, and know-how to provide you with the best solutions to your most challenging applications.

Custody Transfer Gas Flowmeters from Hoffer Flow Controls
Hoffer Turbine Flowmeters are available in a broad range of standard and special materials. The wide range of construction options allows for selecting the optimum combination of useful range, corrosion resistance, and operating life for a particular application. A low mass rotor design allows for a rapid dynamic response which permits the turbine flowmeter to be used in pulsating flow applications.
