Turbine Flowmeters Recalibration
Field Calibrations Industry: Chemicals and Allied Products
SIC Code: 28-XX
Application: Recalibration of turbine flow meters, including cryogenics, petroleum products, etc., for any “clean low viscosity liquid.”
System Requirements: Must be highly accurate.
Meter calibration must be traceable to NIST.
Must be lightweight and portable.
It must be economical.
Solution: Model CP20 Prover
This system consists of a transfer standard turbine flowmeter, a metering run, and electronics mounted on a hand truck for mobility. The electronics provide an instantaneous indication of the flow rate and flowing temperature, a total flow indicator, and an accumulative test total indicator. Hoffer can supply provers in sizes to support ¼” through 2″ flowmeters.
Hoffer Advantage: Use of CP20 Prover means no downtime for the
customer. Meters can be calibrated in the field.
The prover is lightweight and portable.
Prover provides high accuracy that is traceable to NIST.
Summary: The CP20 is a very effective mobile tool to verify flow metering systems’ accuracy for bulk transport applications and plant/lab installations. Portable provers can be designed and manufactured for various liquid applications, including cryogenic, petroleum products, or any “clean low viscosity liquid.” The prover is suitable for customers with multiple meters and provides an economical means for flowmeter recalibration. The customer benefits by eliminating the need to send their turbine flowmeters to a certified calibration lab for recalibration, which entails downtime and labor costs.
The flow system allows the customer to monitor mass flow during the good treatment accurately. Based on the information obtained from the system, they can adjust the treatment of the wellhead to provide for optimum product output.
