Abstract: This paper describes the traceable calibrations from primary standard to onsite natural gas ultrasonic flowmeters. In practice, the National Metrology Laboratory constructed a gravimetric type air-flow calibration system with sonic nozzle array as the working standard in 1993. The flow measurement capacity of this primary standard at 1 bar and 20 ? is from 15 m3/h to 18000 m3/h with operating pressure range from 1 bar to 60 bars. A re-circulating high pressure gas flow measurement facility was constructed at Chinese Petroleum Corp in southern part of Taiwan. The pressure range is also from 1 bar to 60 bars with flow range from 20 m3/h to 4000 m3/h under actual pressure condition. The transfer standards of this re-circulating facility are four 6 Instromet ultrasonic flowmeters. The expanded uncertainty of these four transfer standards calibrated by NML compact nozzles was 0.18 %. For the Da-Tan distribution and metering station in Taiwan, four Sick 12 ultrasonic flowmeters are used as transfer standards.
