Vortex flow meters like a fully developed flow profile and typically require long straight upstream piping runs. Elbows, reducers, etc upstream of the sensor will distort the flow profile and so adequate straight runs need to be accounted for. Typical recommendations suggest 35 straight pipe diameters upstream and 5 straight pipe diameters.

orifice flow coefficient, K, is constant. However, it is known that under some conditions, a change in the orifice coefficient is possible. Figure 5 shows the results of a coefficient shift.

Mach No is a measure of compressibility effects, for example a gas flow with V = 98 ft/s and c = ft/s has M = 98/ = 7/ Although the gas is compressible, it will have a negligible effect on the velocity profile (*M2 = % change in density) In most practical cases of gas flow Re is high and the flow is Size: KB.

produced a smaller effect on flow measurement than testing with a high beta orifice plate and lower injection rates. The authors suggest that there were many potential mechanisms which could affect flow measurement. Some of the mechanisms produce under-measurement of flow and some of the effects produce over-measurement of Size: 80KB.   During the flow conditioner tests in good flow conditions, a set of data was also taken with each flow conditioner pulled back a distance C = 50D upstream of the orifice plate. These results can be used to check the baseline [d] values for each value of beta ratio.

There are huge amounts of data on installation effects on orifice plates, but very limited data on installation effects on Venturi tubes. The effect of upstream fittings and pipework is considered in terms of peakiness of profile, asymmetry and swirl. - The effect of the location of an in-line tube bundle on orifice flowmeter performance Colorado, was used to test a mm (4 inch) stainless steel orifice meter.

The orifice meter had flange taps, and the differential pressure was measured with trans- by: 1. An explanation of the effect of the straightener itself on the orifice coefficient is presented in terms of the kinetic energy coefficient of the flow, and the effect of the swirl with no straightener in the line on the orifice plates was also by: 8.

The Effect of Disturbed Flow Conditions on the Discharge Coefficient of Orifice Plates S. SUMMARY The accurate measurement of flow rate using orifice plates depends upon many factors. One such factor is the condition of the flow in the pipe just upstream of the metering station.

Flow Straighteners DESCRIPTION Cox Flow Straighteners offer a simple method of reducing or eliminating flow swirl, as a result of pipe bends and the location of valves, thermowells or pressure taps naturally found in piping systems.

The use of sharp-edged orifice plates to measure the mass dryness fraction in two-phase flow in pipes is discussed.

Flowell Straightening Vanes are designed to be installed in piping upstream of an orifice plate. When used with recommended minimum pipe lengths, they reduce flow disturbances caused by upstream piping configurations or valves.

Flowell manufactures both line mounted and flanged models in carbon steel and and stainless steel. Either using a long straight pipe, or a flow conditioner upstream of an orifice plate, usually achieves this effect of a fractal flow conditioner for both standard and non-standard flow.

A: The orifice coefficient research is done with long, straight, run of pipe because this is the only arrangement that can be duplicated. Anything less than that is likely to have a nonstandard flow pattern, and it will affect that coefficient.

See the standards or a good flow handbook to see what is required for good accuracy. Vortab flow conditioners reduce straight-run requirements to just a few diameters.

Vortab flow conditioners eliminate the flow distortion effects of elbows, pipe expansion or reductions, valves, dampeners and other disrupters to produce a swirl-free, symmetrical and repeatable flow profile to the flow meter, pump, or other critical components.

Under ideal conditions, the inaccuracy of an orifice plate can be in the range of % AR. Orifice plates are, however, quite sensitive to a variety of error-inducing conditions.

• All volumetric flow meters can be flow conditioned: Orifice, Ultrasonic, Venturi, Coriolis Vortex, Turbine, Cone, Mag, etc. • Every meter type responds differently to the effects of swirl and flow profile distortion.

• Volumetric flow meters are looking for ‘good flow’.flow distortions. In this paper, the effects of various entrance flow velocity profiles, generated by a ball valve on the accuracy of an orifice meter are investigated. The performance of the flowmeter is also assessed when coupled with a vaned-plate flow conditioner and an NEL-plate flow conditioner.
