Providing practical guidance for the design, prototyping and development of flow meters and flow measurement systems

For over 40 years, TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory has been providing practical guidance for the design, prototyping and development of flow meters and flow measurement systems. We also have unmatched expertise in the design, build, operation and maintenance of calibration facilities.

Why choose TÜV SÜD for Design & Commissioning?

We use our expertise to help companies design and construct the best measurement solutions for their businesses. We have a particular focus on cost-savings and process efficiency improvements.

Our past experience helps deliver our clients’ goals in areas such as operating range, flexibility, accuracy and robustness. We can undertake a new design, review current plans or work with an existing design. Our services also include design of flow calibration facilities, infrastructure modelling (to assess any capability gaps) and training (to ensure that the new equipment is installed and operated effectively).

WHAT TYPE OF PROJECTS HAVE TÜV SÜD BEEN INVOLVED IN PREVIOUSLY?

  • Unmanned, fully automated offshore platforms
  • Multi-phase flow measurement meters
  • Sampling systems
  • Produced water measurement systems
  • Design of flow calibration facilities
  • And many more . . .

What design and commissioning stages DO tÜV SÜD carry out?

Stage 1 Concept Design Study

An initial concept design study provides customers with Pre-FEED recommended options to progress to a detailed design. This includes discussion and guidance on the advantages and disadvantages of each option, as well as an estimation of costs for design and procurement. 

Stage 2 Detailed Design Specification and Recommendation

  • Design review
  • Work breakdown structure
  • Process and Instrumentation Diagram (P&ID)
  • Construction plan
  • HAZOP
  • Test & commissioning plan
  • Risk register
  • Process data sheets & equipment
  • Project plan
  • Specification
  • Procurement plan
  • Process modelling
  • ELD review
  • Utilities sizing
  • Layout review

Stage 3 Purchase and Construction

The purchase and construction phase includes the creation of operating procedures and calibration procedures as well as a documented quality management system.

STAGE 4 COMMISSIONING AND TRACEABILITY

Upon completion of the build, TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory can provide guidance on a series of commissioning tests to confirm successful and safe operation and support a series of work packages to provide evidence for any required accreditation.
