New Coriolis Mass Flow Meter Technology Meets Oil and Gas Industry Measurement Challenges

One critical need for this industry is accurate metering flow from individual wellheads, where the oil flows into a separator that separates the water, gas, and oil. During this operation, gas can be entrained in the fluid coming out of the separator, which can disturb the sensitivity of mass flow measurement of liquids, decreasing accuracy or even stopping measurement completely. Now, new Coriolis flow meter technology has been developed that can handle entrained gas and other wellhead measurement challenges. What’s more, the entrained gas management feature enables density and flow measurement at any flow regime, thereby considerably improving process control and efficiency. » Read More
