Visitors to OTC 2013, May 6-9, Houston, who stop by Booth 8819 will learn more about McCrometer’s advanced V-Cone Flow Meter, a fluid measurement solution for rugged offshore production environments.

McCrometer’s exhibit at OTC will feature a new flow demonstration unit. This live demo will show how the V-Cone Flow meter conditions flow unlike any other flow technology. Conditioning the flow in the pipe ensures accurate, reliable dP flow measurement in any environment.

With its unique differential pressure (dP) cone design, the versatile V-Cone Flow Meter and highly scalable Wafer-Cone Flow Meter provide superior flow measurement accuracy and repeatability regardless of space and weight constraints. McCrometer’s field-proven flow measurement solutions have met the demanding production environment 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 confirms 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, INMETRO, GOST and many others.

V-Cone Flow Meter

McCrometer’s V-Cone Flow Meter reduces the upstream/downstream straight pipe run required by OrificePlates and Venturi Tubes by up to 70%. This significant reduction inpipe requirements add 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 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 suited for the measurement of liquid, steam or gas and is available for line sizes from 0.5 to 150 inches, with an unmatched range-ability. Its no-moving-parts design provides an extremely rugged instrument.

Wafer-Cone Flow Meter

McCrometer’s Wafer-Cone Flow Meter is suited for processes in line sizes from one to six inches for onshore well-head measurement, oil treating, enhanced oil recovery, 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.
