High Capacity Coriolis Meters Come In Various Sizes
Emerson Process Management announces the expansion of its high flow capacity Micro Motion Elite Coriolis meter offering to cover 6"-8" line sizes, adding to the existing 8"-10" line size capability. The family of Micro Motion Elite High Capacity meters is said to be ideal for fiscal custody transfer, in addition to liquid and gas measurement in challenging, high flow applications.
Emerson's range of Micro Motion Coriolis meters are suited for liquid hydrocarbons, delivering ±0.10% mass and volume flow accuracy and ±0.0005 g/cc density accuracy and also for natural gas delivering mass accuracy of ± 0.35%, according to the company.
The meters can handle a maximum liquid flow capacity of 94,000 lb/min (2,550,000 l/h / 21,700 bbl/h / 2,550 m3/h), typical gas flow rate of 196,000 scfm of natural gas, and standard pressure ratings to 1,480 psi (102 bar). The Micro Motion sizing program can provide specific information on any application including accuracy, turndown, pressure drop and flow velocity based on the properties of the fluid to be measured.
Elite High Capacity Coriolis meters have been tested with crude oil and other liquid and gas hydrocarbons in accordance with American Petroleum Institute (API) and American Gas Association (AGA) procedures. They have been approved by the European Measuring Instrument Directive 2004/22/EC (MID) for gas meters (Annex MI-002) and liquids other than water (Annex MI-005) by the internationally respected Dutch metrology institute NMI.
