Petrochemical Flow Meters
For the successful transportation and refining of crude oils a whole raft of additives are required. These vary from simple surfactants through to complex blended scale and corrosion inhibitors. These chemicals are injected in small quantities at high pressure and are critical to the whole refining process. Consequently, careful monitoring of their addition to […]
Liquid Flow Meter Terms – Cutting out the ‘Marketing Speak’
The following explanation of terms commonly associated with liquid flow metering are not necessarily the strict definitions to be in published standards but are more an attempt to describe the terms in more accessible ‘less commercial’ language.
Liquid flow meter performance can be expressed in several […]
A ‘Laboratory Flow Meters’ article by Trevor Forster, Titan Enterprises Ltd.
Laboratory Flow Meters
Flow measurement in a typical laboratory or pilot plant poses some unusual problems. Inevitably, with laboratory flow meters and systems, the pipes are small and the flow rates low and these factors introduce some unique problems. The low energy available from the fluid and the […]
