V-Cone Flow Meter Conforms To API 22.2 Testing Protocol

Source: McCrometer, Inc.

The American Petroleum Institute Manual of Petroleum Measurement Standards, Chapter 5.7 (API 5.7) specifies a testing protocol for differential pressure flow measurement devices. The protocol was written to apply to all flow measurement devices that measure single-phase fluid flow based on the detection of a differential pressure created in the fluid flow stream. This standard was published in January 2003 “to supply industry with a comparable description of the capabilities of these devices for the measurement of single-phase fluid flow when they are used under similar operating conditions.”
