Refining Technologies

Coriolis

Coriolis flow meters have a wide dynamic range with typical turndown ratios in the order of 25:1 and good accuracy over a 100:1 dynamic flow range in some applications.

Differential Pressure

As the most widely used and best-documented technology, DP flow meters have no moving parts, are easy to troubleshoot and can be configured quickly without calibration.

Magnetic

Magnetic flow meters are obstructionless, cost-effective for aggressive chemicals and slurries, and provide highly accurate volumetric flow measurement (0.15%).

Turbine

Featuring low-cost installation, maintenance and ownership, Turbine flow meters offer high accuracy and repeatable measurement under the most demanding conditions of custody transfer applications.

Ultrasonic

Ultrasonic flow meters virtually eliminate incremental pressure drop, offer large turndown ratios and enable bi-directional measurement, making them ideal for a variety of fiscal and non-fiscal applications.

Vortex

Vortex flow meters offer easy installation without impulse lines, no moving parts to maintain or repair, less leak potential, and reliable performance in liquid, gas and steam applications.

White Paper

This white paper on changes in product blending explores why the industry is moving away from turbine meters and toward Coriolis meters because of stricter demands on blending from increased government regulations for volatility, and other key reasons.
