Achieve USM Field Accuracy
Author(s): Charles Derr
Abstract/Introduction:
All of these production meters will need field design calibration planning data points selected, piping treatments provided, field mating site piping planning to avoid installation effects. Before they leave for calibrations, You should spec out: Calibration points maximized for real service ranges (several of the 7-10 typ. flow pts. in the normal range). Pipe end treatments specified to be in place at calibration ( and arrive pre-installed where its rational to do so). Specify which tube sections/intersections can/cannot be unbolted for transport after calibration. Specify that any intersections must have the gasket centered without intrusion on re-bolt-up.

Flow Conditioners & Elliptical Deflectors
Abstract/Introduction:
Why? Weve become aware of instances where companies were removing the flow conditioners in order to use an elliptical deflector instead There was a misunderstanding where it was thought that elliptical deflector would eliminate swirl and flow profile distortions better than a high performance plate style flow conditioner Elliptical deflectors should be used in combination with a flow conditioner

Economics Of Compositional And Quality Determination
Author(s): David Wofford
Abstract/Introduction:
Economics of Compositional and Quality Determination Fluids: Natural Gas: Naturally occurring hydrocarbon gas mixture comprised primarily of methane, ethane, propane and heavier hydrocarbons, as well a carbon dioxide, nitrogen and other diluents. Condensate: Natural gas liquid composed of primarily pentanes and heavier hydrocarbons with an API gravity of 45o or greater. Crude Oil: Petroleum liquid of an API gravity of 450 or lower containing heavier hydrocarbons, mostly Alkanes (Paraffins), Cycloaklanes (Naphthenes), Aromatics and Aspahltics.

Experimental Evidence In Flow Metering, The Inconvenient Truth!
Author(s): T. Cousins
Abstract/Introduction:
I am a believer in Data as Experimental Evidence. However! There are three areas where data can mislead: If the data or experiment is flawed. Phlogiston Theory: If the experiment is set up to give a distorted impression of the results. Type Testing: If the interpretation of the data is flawed. This described in this presentation.

Finding Criteria For Determining When Flowmeters Need Recalibrating
Author(s): Jesse Yoder, Phd
Abstract/Introduction:
What is the Flow Recalibration Working Group (FRWG)? The FRWG is a group of industry experts who share a belief in the importance of finding criteria for determining when a flowmeter should be recalibrared. We currently meet annually and communicate by email and phone between meetings. The FRWG is made up of representatives of a number of the leading flowmeter manufacturers and members of many of the leading flowmeter calibration facilties. We are conducting an end-user survey and building an information database of articles and studies about flowmeter recalibration.
