Installation effects on ultrasonic flow meters for gas applications

Objective



Ultrasonic gas meters have been developed to a stage where they can be considered as alternatives to orifice plate and turbine meters for fiscal metering, particularly for large gas transmission lines applications. However, their use is not covered by the existing directives on gas flow and there are no recognised standards for their installation and operation.

The purpose of the present study is to investigate the effects of upstream disturbances on the accuracy of 150 mm and 300 mm ultrasonic gas meters with a view to developing appropriate written standards.

Status:
In progress.
