Benefits of Calibrating Meters Under Process Conditions
Author(s): Didier PABOIS
Abstract/Introduction:
All liquid (and gas) flowing quantities measurement technologies are more or less sensitive to their conditions of use (and to variations of these conditions over time) Meter Performances (Linearity AND Repeatability) are impacted by: -Processandinstallationconditionssuchas: Flowrate, Temperature, Pressure, Upstream/Downstream pipe sections length ... - And Fluid characteristics such as: Density, Viscosity, Speed Of Sound, Vapor Pressure... This is why

Plan the Site and CalibrateSmartly to Ensurethe Gas Ultrasonic Custody Station is Installed
Author(s): Charles Derr
Abstract/Introduction:
In the past two-plus decades the volume of calibrations, research groups testing for different field installation piping configurations, gas contamination (and entrained liquids) effects, proper flow conditioning and meter package assembly techniques is monumental! Take advantage of the millions of dollars of data when planning an Installed-Accurate Gas ultrasonic meter (Gusm) measurement station. The Objective is to PLAN to design your meter stations to work in the field without (allowed)installation errors! The Empirical data is available to do so! This Station with 8x of 12 In. USMs was meticulously planned at every stage! Residual installation error offsets were not an option. The installed meters diagnostics look identical to the under-calibration diagnostics! Get the designright! Get the mechanical installationright! And you Get the Dynamics of the flow right! Field Accuracy.. is the Only Real Accuracy!

Custody Transfer Accuracy of an 8-Path Ultrasonic Flow Meter with 5D Upstream Straight Run
Author(s): Nicholas J. Mollo
Abstract/Introduction:
Calibration of ultrasonic flow meters for custody transfer service is already a tricky business. The need for compact metering skids used in offshore applications where foot print is critical, and land based applications where cost is important, require meter installations that can tolerate the reduced straight inlet lengths. Meters utilizing multiple, cross -plane, measurement paths to cancel swirl effects is a common practice. Opposing tangential velocity vectors are automatically subtracted from each other. Is a long, straight pipe, calibration of such a flow meter sufficient to provide custody transfer level accuracy in disturbed, short length inlet installations?

Traceability of Liquid Natural Gas Measurements
Author(s): Thomas Kegel and William Johansen
Abstract/Introduction:
Industrial use of liquefed natural gas (LNG) has a surprisingly long history. The first practical refrigeration system was built in 1873 the first commercial liquefaction plant was built in 1917. Over time two applications have been developed that are relevant to the current paper. The first involves storage of LNG to handle peak demand in pipeline systems, the process is identified as peak shaving. A second application is the transport of hydrocarbon fuel where gas pipelines are unavailable. More recently LNG playing an important role in the storage and transport of energy. This paper considers LNG measurement traceability from the perspective of a ?ow calibration facility. The paper is divided into four main sections: The first is a brief case study of marine bunkering, the second discusses other LNG ?ow measurement applications. The third section describes the NIST cryogenic ?ow standard. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of uncertainty components.
