CUI Global, Inc. Announces Inclusion of its Patented Vergence® Natural Gas Metering Device into Industry Leading OPTA-PERIPH's ISOSAMPLE 8100 Liquid Natural Gas Sampling and Vaporization System

TUALATIN, Ore., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 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, OPTA-PERIPH, allowing OPTA-PERIPH to incorporate the Vergence® 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, Pierre Barere, "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 ISOSAMPLE 8100.  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.

LNG Plant Applications for the ISOSAMPLE 8100 will include:

  • Re-condenser outlet for Wobbe and CV measurements;
  • Export boil-off gas ("BOG") line to the network – blending BOG with natural gas to meet gas quality specification is required within a short response time;
  • Ballasting control feedback analyzer for efficient liquid N2 injection; and more.

In addition, OPTA-PERIPH will use the Real Time and Cost Effective LNG Quality Tracker to target the middle and small scale LNG production operators beginning to emerge throughout the World (including production of vehicle-grade fuel) as both worldwide demand and supply of natural gas increases.

OPTA-PERIPH expects to begin marketing the Real Time and Cost Effective LNG Quality Tracker package immediately and has already begun marketing announcements throughout the LNG community.

"This arrangement with a respected natural gas technology company like OPTA-PERIPH is yet another milestone in the industry acceptance of our patented Vergence Gas Metering Technology," explained CUI Global's president & CEO, William Clough.  "We look forward to a long and profitable relationship with OPTA-PERIPH and welcome this introduction into the LNG marketplace as part of such a unique process/control package."

Similarly, OPTA-PERIPH's president, Pierre Barere, concluded by stating that, "This combination of innovative technologies between our company and CUI Global will extend and enhance the functionality and efficiency of any size LNG terminal process control – small, medium, or large – It will allow OPTA-PERIPH to supply a unique control processing device to the industry, using technology that is simply not available from anyone else."

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.

In this power panel at @...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video.
