M-1 Flow Measurement


FLOW MEASUREMENT (46 pages with 45 drawings, tables, illustrations, and examples) This training manual reviews the procedures for calculating natural gas and liquid flow through an orifice plate, use of turbine meter and positive displacement meters and other devices used for measuring fluid flow. Both Metric and English units of measurement are used so students can work in units with which they are familiar.

Covered Subjects:

  • Principles of flow measurement using an orifice plate
  • Types of fluid flow measurement devises
  • The orifice coefficient and the effect of temperature and relative density on measurement
  • The procedure to calculate natural gas flow through an orifice meter tube
  • Tables are provided for the coefficient, and correction factors for temperature, relative density, and supercompressibility
  • Drawings and photographs of various devices used in fluid flow measurement

Questions and problems are included throughout the text with answers in the back that allow students to check their understanding of the subject.

Estimated self-study time: 8 hours

M-1 Flow Measurement - Instructor Kit

The M-1 Instructor Kit, in addition to the M-1 training manual, includes a CD disc that has all of the photographs, diagrams, illustrations and examples printed in the training manual. Answers to all the test questions in the manual are included.

With a few hours of familiarization with the material a knowledgeable supervisor or other individual with group speaking skills may act as the classroom instructor. Using the Instructor Kit CD the training material can be displayed on a computer connected monitor or screen with a video projector.

Alternatively, an experienced PLP instructor can travel to your site to lead the classroom training program. Contact PLP for more information.
