COURSE LOCATION: NMI Flow Facility, 919 Londonderry Road, Londonderry, NSW, 2753

Knowledge and skills

The course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to:

  • calibrate a flowmeter and calculate the measurement uncertainty
  • apply fluid pressure and temperature corrections in accordance with API standards
  • identify and minimise sources of error impacting performance of measurement systems


The topics covered include:

  • measurement traceability
  • flow meters and their characteristics including turbines, coriolis, pistons, capsule
  • ancillary instrumentation: pressure, temperature, density
  • calibration methods: gravimetric, volume proving, in-line comparison
  • use of API hydrocarbon tables and algorithms
  • common sources of error affecting flow measurements: bubbles and vapour, flow straighteners, and strainers
  • measurement uncertainty analysis*
  • practical demonstrations

* Participants with limited experience in estimating measurement uncertainty would benefit from first attending the Introduction to Estimating Measurement Uncertainty course.
