CUI Global, Inc.
(NASDAQ: CUI), a platform company dedicated to the acquisition, development, and commercialization of new, innovative products and technologies, today announced that it has finalized an agreement with French company,
, allowing OPTA-PERIPH to incorporate the
® GasPT2 device into their industry leading, patented Liquid Natural Gas ("LNG") Probe & Vaporizing Units. The combination of these two unique technologies will result in a real-time, cost effective LNG Quality Tracker, with features that are currently unavailable in the marketplace.
OPTA-PERIPH will brand the Vergence unit as the "
Ex-Situ Real Time Continuous Analyzer
" and combine it in a package with its proprietary LNG probe and vaporizing units. The resulting super-insulation system is designed as a cost effective package for real-time LNG Quality Tracking that improves metering response time and uncertainty over current gas chromatograph energy calculation methods. The system is simple, easily handled, and completely integrated; with no requirement for preventive maintenance or calibration.
As explained by OPTA-PERIPH president,
, "The global LNG industry has seen dramatic growth since the late 2000's and OPTA-PERIPH has been widely recognized as the World Leader for supplying its patented LNG Integral Sampling and Vaporization System Series, the
. The device provides a fully representative sample of the LNG transferred, now including processing and treatment of the online Vergence® GasPT2 device measurements, giving the LNG Terminal Operator reliable, robust, and accurate LNG Quality Tracking."
LNG quality is essential to determine the amount of energy transferred for fiscal metering, custody transfer, and other purposes. Determination of energy is accomplished by means of a complex, patented process and calculations provided by the Vergence® GasPT2 measured parameters.
