Displacement meter, critical flow prover, and sonic nozzle calculations were also added.
An operating company and a supplier have worked together to craft a solution to the challenge facing many gas transmission companies in establishing a corporate protocol for providing independent third-party verification of the company's gas meters--orifice, turbine, positive displacement, sonic, ultrasonic, and critical flow provers, (Figure 1).
In response to this industry need, Lomic created MeterCalc to monitor the performance of natural gas metering devices: orifice, turbine, displacement and ultrasonic meters, and critical flow provers. Built with industry support, MeterCalc's design enables users to easily input gas composition and measured properties, and provides highly accurate fluid property and engineering calculations.
