V-Cone Flowmeter Solves Test Separator Problems For The Oil & Gas Industry

Test separators are normally used when more than one well and field deliver fluid to the platform at the same time. It is important to continuously monitor the oil, condensate, water and gas being delivered to the platform from each well.

McCrometer’s patented V-Cone flowmeter offers an advanced differential pressure flow technology that acts as its own flow conditioner.

This unique design enables the V-Cone flowmeter to provide outstanding performance without the long lengths of upstream or downstream pipe runs usually required by other types of flowmeters. This requirement for reduced straight pipe run results in significant space savings, especially on offshore platforms. For retrofit purposes, the V-Cone is simple to install.
