Abstract: The liquid turbine meter was first applied in the aerospace industry to measure fuel and hydraulic fluid. This meter had the necessary characteristics of being small in size, light weight, linear, highly accurate, and easy to interface to electronic controls. The liquid product pipelines and light crude handlers quickly adapted the turbine meter to their need for a linear, highly repeatable, and long-lasting meter for custody transfer. Applications in general industry measurement followed. Turbine meters are widely used to measure the produced oil and water from production wells. Turbine meter sizes range from 1/4 to 30 in size.
