Advanced Offshore Flow Measurement Solutions

Press Release
Tuesday, January 22, 2013

McCrometer offers advanced flow meter technology measurement solutions for the industry’s challenging, highly space- and weight-constrained offshore oil and gas production environments. 

 

Subsea modules, Offshore Platforms and FPSO Vessels necessitate flow meters that can maintain accuracy under rugged, crowded, high pressure conditions. Already cramped installations are further complicated by the extensive straight pipe runs required by most flow meter measurement technologies to condition fluid for measurement accuracy and repeatability.

 

McCrometer’s versatile, space- and weight-saving V-Cone Flow Meter and highly scalable Wafer-Cone Flow Meter have met the challenges of the oil and gas industry for more than three decades.
 


V-Cone Flow Meter

Featuring advanced dP technology, McCrometer’s V-Cone Flow Meter offers built-in flow conditioning that is designed to reduce 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, reducing 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 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 with virtually no maintenance required over a long life.
 


Wafer-Cone Flow Meter

The highly scalable Wafer-Cone Flow Meter is ideal for small line processes in line sizes from 1 to 6 inches. Like the V-Cone, self-conditioning means little or no upstream or downstream piping runs are required. The economical Wafer-Cone can be installed virtually anywhere in a piping system or be easily retrofit into an existing piping layout, making it ideal for retrofitting into the space-constrained offshore production environment as well as reducing the cost of new installations.


The Wafer-Cone Flow Meter raises the bar for economy, ease of use and performance. It achieves an accuracy of +1.0 percent, with a repeatability of +0.1 percent, and operates over a flow range of 10:1.
