Abstract: Single phase differential pressure (DP) meters can be used to meter wet gas flows if the liquid flow rate can be obtained from an independent source and a suitable wet gas correction factor is available. As it is not a trivial task to measure the liquid flow rate of a wet gas flow, sophisticated wet gas flow meters have been developed that meter the gas and liquid phases simultaneously. The complexity of most wet gas meters means that they tend to be expensive (relative to standard gas meters). Therefore, due to economic necessity, many wet gas flow applications still have single phase gas meters being fitted to meter wet gas flows. This situation is not ideal, as it means poorer metering performance than what is really desired.
