FPSO Flow Meter Fits Just Right

Source: McCrometer, Inc.

Engineers in a tight spot over where to locate liquid and gas flow meters aboard Offshore platforms, FPSO Vessels and Sub-Sea Installations will find the self-conditioning V-Cone® Offshore Flow Meter from McCrometer requires a pipe straight-run that is up to 70-percent less than other meters, resulting in significant real estate and installation cost savings that can actually exceed the cost of the instrument itself.

The advanced V-Cone operates over a wide flow range of 10:1 with low headloss and supports line sizes from 0.5 to greater than 120 inches. Accuracy is ±0.5%, with a repeatability of ±0.1%. Petroleum production engineers can rely on the V-Cone Flow Meter for long life and low cost of ownership because it requires virtually no recalibration or maintenance over an exceptionally long life. Easy to locate and easy to install, the versatile V-Cone is ideal for new equipment designs, expansion projects or retrofits requiring new meters.
