Palm oil flow measurement in the snack food industry
I manufacture snack food and use a lot of palm olein oil in my processes. I need to measure the quantity of oil in liters in two places. First from the tanker to the main tank (tank capacity 33,000 liters) on a 3-inch pipe with a flow of 1000 liter per minute - edible vegetable oil, flange, digital ...
5 electromagnetic flow meter you must know
5 electromagnetic flow meter you must know When it comes to cost benefits, electromagnetic flow meter. End of story. Well, not really. Of course, these meters have specific needs in certain processes, as most do. But if everything fits, then you get a cheaper meter compared to other principles, wit ...
Offshore and Onshore Flow Metering Systems – Final Chapter
Chapter Seven-  “The Problem with Master Metering is… ... that it is not a prover.” That’s usually how that sentence ends. Ball and piston provers are effectively discontinuous positive displacement flow meters. An accurate swept volume divided by the displacement period (measured accurat ...

Offshore and Onshore Flow Metering Systems – Part III
Offshore and Onshore Flow Metering Systems - Part III Chapter Five – The Shock of the New By the mid 1990s, the phrases ‘fit for purpose’ and ‘cost reduction’ hit the Oil & Gas projects. Traditional metering stations with relatively high CAPEX and maintenance costs.  But let's not f ...
Offshore and Onshore Flow Metering Systems – Part II
Chapter Three: Space – The Final Frontier Early on, people called Gulf rigs ‘lily-pads’. The traditional meter stations barely fit on the structures. The flow meter process offshore was either very unsophisticated  or simply carried out elsewhere. David Potter's work in the 1940s for the ...
Game of Coriolis: Density measurement
Density measurement We all know Coriolis flow meters are powerful field devices. If you read our earlier article, you learned the basics of how they work in mass flow measurement. Today, let's go further and learn more about how they can measure density. We'll talk a little about some cool technolo ...
Game of Coriolis: Mass flow measurement
Coriolis mass flow meter You've heard a lot from us on flow measurement so far. We started with differential pressure (DP) transmitters in flow measurement and their advantages and disadvantages. However, most companies sell their products based on weight instead of volume, because factors such as ...
Product Review: Badger Meter RCT1000
Product Review: Badger Meter RCT1000 When we talk about flow measurement, you usually think of Coriolis flow meters, right? The Coriolis brings a lot to a process, measuring mass and volume flow, density, concentration, and so on. Furthermore, the installation doesn't require a specific inlet and o ...
Type of flow measurement – PROMASS Q 300
I am looking for a flexible flow meter that can provide me with more than one type of measurement! I already know that Coriolis is the king for that, but could you tell what sort of information I can collect using the PROMASS Q 300? ...
