Engineers in a tight spot over where to locate liquid and gas flowmeters aboard offshore platforms, FPSO vessels, and sub-sea installations may find a solution with the self-conditioning V-Cone offshore flowmeter from McCrometer. It requires a pipe straight-run that is up to 70 percent less than other meters, resulting in significant real estate and installation cost savings that can actually exceed the cost of the instrument itself. The advanced V-Cone operates over a wide flow range of 10:1 with low headloss and supports line sizes from 0.5 to greater than 120 in. Accuracy is +0.5 percent, with a repeatability of +0.1 percent. The flowmeter requires virtually no recalibration or maintenance and is compatible with the standards set by the oil/gas production, delivery, and refining industry.
