Emdyne, Inc. is owned and operated by Coley Wood in Houston, Texas. Emdyne specializes in the design and
manufacture of electro-mechanical instruments for laboratories, the oil and gas industry, and in the producing of prototypes for
various inventions and technical products in various stages of development.
The Emdyne, Inc. Precision Gasmeter MK2000 was developed and patented during the 1980's for applications related
to enhanced oil and gas recovery laboratory studies. As such, it is sized for collection rates from a few milliliters per
hour to maximum rates up to a few tens of liters per hour. Early examples of the instrument simply recorded volume on a
panel meter to be written down by the operator when desired. In the late 1990's one customer asked for two important
features to be included: regulated heating of the hardware handling the measured gases and, also, a means of
reporting to a data logging computer in the lab. These features have proven to be beneficial and are included in the
Each instrument is constructed of the best materials available: hard anodized aluminum case and internal parts, 316
stainless tubing, fittings and valves, a specialized linear stepper motor, state of the art temperature management, rugged and
reliable electronics for data collection and controls. User serviceability is designed in and specialized tools are not
required for routine maintenance in the field.
Emdyne, Inc. warrants the Gasmeter for one year from date of purchase. It is recommended that users perform routine
maintenance and lubrication on a yearly basis. Usually, this inspection requires unbolting the cylinder assembly and
lubricating the O-rings on the pistons and each cylinder. A special Halocarbon grease is provided as well as spare O-rings.
The counter on the front panel may require a battery change at 7 years.
