TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory is one of the world’s leading independent providers of calibration and testing services

TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory’s Oil Flow Measurement Facility is a modern purpose- built flow meter calibration and evaluation laboratory. The facility has four separate flow lines, covering a wide range of flow rates with a selection of different oils. Combining these oils with TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory’s unique temperature control system allows independent variation in the test temperature and viscosity. The test sections can be constructed to offer long straight lengths upstream and downstream or, if necessary, specific configurations designed to replicate actual installations.

Oil Flow Measurement Standard

TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory operates the UK primary oil flow measurement standard. The facility is operated by multi-skilled teams supported by technical experts and TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory is a UKAS accredited calibration laboratory (No. 0009). The oil facility is accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017.
