Introduction to Flow Measurement



The measurement of fluid flows is vital to everyone – from primary energy production through to personal consumption. As an oil and gas producer, accurate flow measurement is vital to the UK economy, enabling the government, energy producers and energy users to trade confidently. At a personal level we consume energy in our homes and vehicles, so measurement of gas flows and fuel flows at petrol stations impacts us financially. Many of the products that we consume require measurement of fluid flows but this may not be obvious to all industry users. For example, measurement of the flows of utilities such as water, steam, compressed air and gas are essential for controlling and optimising production of foodstuffs, chemicals and a wide range of consumer goods. Flow measurement also has a vital role to play at the environmental level too, for the accurate determination of emission and the management of water resources.
