TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory is the UK’s Designated Institute for Flow Measurement and has been involved in testing and R&D of wet-gas metering technologies for more than 20 years. The data collected with the wet-gas loop, in its original one-liquid-component configuration, contributed extensively to the development of the correlations included in the ISO Technical Report 11583:2012. In 2015, the wet-gas loop was upgraded to two-components-liquids to advance wet-gas flow research. In October, a new high pressure and high flow rate Advanced Multiphase Flow (AMF) test facility was launched, which has capabilities beyond anything available in the world today.
This webinar will offer an introduction to wet-gas flow metering. The first part of the webinar will be dedicated to the fundamentals of wet gas flow, the terminology used and the flow regime characterisation. The second part will focus on the different metering technologies available and briefly on how to select the correct flow meter. The latest R&D projects conducted at TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory will be presented in the final part of the webinar and references to international standards and guidelines will be offered.
