Abstract: 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
