SIFAB AS is representing McCrometer in Norway. McCrometer is a US manufacturer of V-Cone differential pressure and electromagnetic flowmeters.
McCrometer V-cone Oil&Gas applications
V-Cone meters are supplied to a large number of applications offshore Norway. McCrometer develops innovative, high-quality, precision flow meters for the most demanding liquid, steam and gas measurement applications.
V-cone meters can be taylor made to fit special applications and manufactured according to client needs and requirements. Short straight pipe requirements gives the V-Cone meter an advantage compared to other measurement principles.
How does it work
High pressure port senses the line ( gauge) pressure of the process. The cone by reducing the free flow area, increase the velocity of the flow and as result create a discharge pressure that is lower than line pressure. The Low pressure port senses the discharge pressure, so across the High and Low Pressure ports, a Differential pressure (DP) can be sensed. Such DP is a direct measurement of the Volumetric Flow inside the pipe.
0.5% of rate (certain fluids and Reynolds number applications may require specific calibrations to achieve this value)
±0.1% or better
10:1 and greater
Standard Beta Ratios:
0.45 through 0.85, custom betas available
Varies with beta ratio and dP
Installation Piping Requirements:
Typically 0-3 diameters upstream and 0-1 diameter downstream of the cone are required, depending on fittings or valves in the adjacent pipeline
