This two-day course (9 am to 5 pm) provides training on the calibration of liquid-hydrocarbon LPG and petroleum flow meters. It is aimed at manufacturers, technicians and laboratory managers involved in the calibration and use of flowmeters. It includes hands-on learning activities on-site at NMI’s world-class hydrocarbon flow calibration and training facility at Londonderry (Sydney).

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
