Huge ALTOSONIC 5 ultrasonic flowmeters for custody transfer (CT) applications | KROHNE

March 8, 2019

The video deals with the production and calibration of ALTOSONIC 5 ultrasonic flowmeters. Context: KROHNE produced a series of 48” ALTOSONIC 5 ultrasonic flowmeters for custody transfer (CT) to measure crude oil up to 15,000 m³/h. The calibration was done with up to 4,500 m³/h on 1 and 20 cSt at EuroLoop, and up to 15,000 m³/h on KROHNE’s water calibration loop in Dordrecht, The Netherlands. All meters stayed very well within the 0.027% uncertainty as per API 5.8, table B-1. The meters are fully bore and fully pig-able as they do not require a flow conditioner. Furthermore, they have a dedicated transducer installed on the 12 o’clock position to enable full pipe detection.

Everyone is very familiar with the phrase when buying a house: All that really matters are three things - location, location, and location. This same principle applies to extractables and leachables chemistry analysis – the three things that truly matter are identification, identification, and identification. The greatest growth in the past ten years in demonstrating the safety of medical devices and container closure systems for drugs has been using analytical chemistry to determine what chemicals can leach from the device and what the patient is exposed to during its intended use.
