Space and Weight-Saving V-Cone Flow Meters offer accuracy and longevity
October 3, 2016
With their unique self-conditioning differential pressure (dP) cone design, McCrometer’s advanced V-Cone® Flow Meters provide engineers visiting with the ideal fluid measurement solution in rugged offshore production applications from the bottom of the sea floor to platforms placed in the most severe environments.
Featuring advanced dP technology, the versatile V-Cone Flow Meter and highly scalable Wafer-Cone Flow Meter provide superior flow measurement accuracy and repeatability regardless of fluid dynamics. They have met the challenges of the oil and gas industry for more than three decades.
Third party testing to the American Petroleum Institute’s API 22.2 Testing Protocol for Differential Pressure Flow Devices proves the V-Cone’s highly accurate flow measurement with minimal pipe runs.. The V-Cone also is available with international certifications such as Measurement Canada and INMETRO.
McCrometer’s exhibit includes hands-on demo flow meters, video tutorials, our Oil/Gas Resource Guide CD, complimentary Flow Meter Evaluations.
V-Cone Flow Meter
McCrometer’s V-Cone Flow Meter with built-in flow conditioning reduces the upstream/downstream straight pipe run required by Orifice Plates and Venturi Tubes by up to 70 percent. This significant reduction in pipe requirements adds up to cost savings in materials and installation labor that reduce FPSO Vessel tonnage and the footprint of Subsea modules. Using less pipe and reducing total weight also simplifies vessel balancing, making it easier to find the optimal location for flow meter installation.
The V-Cone’s provides a stable flow profile for reliable measurement, featuring accuracy of ±0.5% of actual flow and repeatability of ±0.1% over the entire range. It is ideal for the measurement of liquid, steam or gas and is available for line sizes from 0.5 to 120 inches, with an unmatched 10:1 turndown ratio for wide range-ability. Its no-moving-parts design provides an extremely rugged instrument.
Wafer-Cone Flow Meter
The highly scaleable Wafer-Cone Flow Meter is ideal for small line processes in line sizes from 1 to 6 inches for onshore well-head measurement for Coal Bed Methane, Coal Seam Gas and Oil Sands applications. It can be installed virtually anywhere in a piping system or be easily retrofit into an existing piping layout, resulting in significant installation flexibility and in new installation initial cost savings.
The Wafer-Cone Flow Meter achieves an accuracy of +1.0 percent, with a repeatability of +0.1 percent, and operates over a flow range of 10:1. The Wafer-Cone raises the bar for economy, ease of use and performance.
