Custody transfer is a critical process in the oil and gas industry that involves the transfer of ownership of a product from one party to another. Therefore, accurately measuring the quantity and quality of the transferred product is essential to ensure fair and equitable transactions.
Coriolis flow meters have become increasingly popular in custody transfer applications due to their high accuracy, reliability, and ability to provide real-time fluid flow measurements. Check out more information about Coriolis Flow Meters.
Why are Coriolis Flow Meters Preferred in Custody Transfer Applications?
All flow measurement application require measuring a quantity of fluid. Quantity is its mass and Coriolis flow measurement is the ONLY flow technology that can measure mass flow at very high accuracies. Custody transfer applications require accurate and reliable mass (quantity) of fluid flow measurement to ensure fair and equitable transactions. Other flow measurement techniques measure volume and volume changes with changes in pressure and pressure. Measuring mass directly makes Coriolis flow meters the preferred and ONLY choice in custody transfer applications.
Coriolis flow meters are highly accurate and can accurately measure fluid flow rates within ±0.1%. This level of accuracy is essential in custody transfer applications, where even small measurement errors can result in significant financial losses.
Coriolis flow meters provide real-time measurements of fluid flow rates, which is essential in custody transfer applications where the quantity and quality of the transferred product must be accurately measured.
Low Maintenance Requirements
Coriolis flow meters have no moving parts, which means they have minimal maintenance requirements compared to other types of flow meters. This low maintenance requirement is particularly important in custody transfer applications, where downtime due to maintenance can result in significant financial losses.
Wide Range of Applications
Coriolis flow meters can measure the flow of a wide range of fluids, including liquids, gases, and slurries, making them suitable for various custody transfer applications.
Coriolis flow meters are a highly accurate and reliable way to measure fluid mass flow in custody transfer applications. Their benefits include high accuracy, real-time measurement, low maintenance requirements, and a wide range of applications.
In addition, by providing real-time fluid flow measurements, they can help ensure fair and equitable transactions in the oil and gas industry.
