The venturi meter takes advantage of a constriction to change the speed of fluid flow, thus changing the dynamic pressure. Lyda P.

They have been in common use for many years, especially in the water supply industry. Hodges, I. Each meter was tested for accuracy with ten pipe wall offsets varying from a 0. Maxtec is a very professional company that practices the Golden Rule. Venturi Flow Meter Calibration. Comment on Graph 2. From consideration of continuity between the mouth of the venturi of area A 1 and the throat of area A 2: Figure H1. If we can reduce or avoid these factors, the verification system will improve verification accuracy to meet research needs and customer requirements.

The top three valves control flow through the experimental pipes, while the bottom three valves control the Venturi meter to be used. Herschel obtained a patent 3 for a Venturi meter. The equation is based on the Bernoulli equation, conservation of energy, and the continuity equation. Nowadays, there is no researcher between venturi and pipe, liquid density and temperature.

A venturi, orifice, and rotameter flow meter were used in the experiment. The experiment is designed to study uniform water flow over a range of flow rates. It is mainly used for robust applications as it is known for its durability and is very economical. Analysis and Discussion Describe what happen ideally to the flow as the water flow through the venturi meter. Measuring to the nearest meter means the true value could be up to half a meter smaller or larger. Evaluation of On-Line Chromatograph Performance Cebu City, Philippines This experiment aims to be calibrate both the venture apparatus and the orifice apparatus.

In [3] Calibration of flow meter is done with thehelp of microcontrollers. If you have a demonstration that you use in class that you would like to share on this blog please email me nbkaye clemson.

Data analysis is seldom a straight forward process because of the presence of uncertainties. If you missed Part one, please visit WaterTechOnline.

Gibson, D. The permanent head loss as a function of liquid mass fraction is as shown in Fig. In doing so, one can measure the relative difference in flow speed between the two sections. In actual situation, the meter not only makes up the lack of accuracy, but also makes sure the deal between drivers and passengers fair.

Examples of Calibration Approaches and Accuracy Calculations. We met with Manuel to see if it would be possible to bore out. From individual flow meters to complete test systems that can easily integrate with your information systems, we produce the full range of products for flow measurement and control.

Littleton Abstract. The two standard pressure tapping arrangements for small bore orifices are shown in the drawings; the location of the pressure taps affects the discharge There are venturi flow meter suppliers, mainly located in Asia. The coefficient of discharge of Operation of venturi meter: The fluid whose flow rate is to be measured enters the entry section of the venturi meter with a pressure P1.

Using mathematics, hydraulic theory, standards, published manufacturer Experiment No 1: Measurement of Flow In the following experiment you will calibrate methods used to measure volumetric and mass flow rates. ISO , Part 3 does not include the measurement of multiphase flow rate by a Venturi meter however it is possible to measure the multiphase volumetric flow by measuring the differential pressure across the Venturi meter throat.

The coefficient of discharge C d for a Venturi meter is in the region of 0.

The Sealed Nectar: Biograpy of the Noble Prophet

Enhanced or modified ISO equations are used as developed by the manufacturers. A venturi meter with a 3 in. Herschel first tested his Venturi meter concept in while working for the company.

An index of all the demonstrations posted on this blog can be found here. A Theory for a Sliding Vane Meter 9. There are many differ-ent types of flow meters available on the market. A master meter is a flowmeter that has been calibrate d to a very high degree of accuracy.

One of the main advantages of using a Venturi meter is the long, useful life expectancy of the meter body where other types of flow meters have a comparatively short life expectancy.

There should not be more than one group of A standard deviation gives one a measure of how widely scattered the set of data is. Need to take more samples in different areas of the lawn to find the difference between Read "Numerical investigation of wet gas flow in Venturi meter, Flow Measurement and Instrumentation" on DeepDyve, the largest online rental service for scholarly research with thousands of academic publications available at your fingertips.

For analysis, 2D symmetry has been used for the numerical simulation. Therefore, the Ap cell errors noted in this analysis are S I For differential-producing meters such as flow nozzles, Venturi meters, and orifice plates, it is desirable to calibrate at the operating Reynolds number of the meter. This allows the elimination of process rack and sensor drift errors from conside:,ation.

What is the difference between uncertainty and accuracy in the Netherlands, about multiphase flow metering with a venturi. Abellanosa Instructor The venturi meter device measures the flow rate or velocity of a fluid through a pipe.

Description: chosen for this research were the classical Venturi meter, Halmi Venturi Tube, wedge meter, V-cone meter, and the X-meter. However, errors in reading the column height will affect the calculated value of the flowrate. Since all the designs share the same pattern of plot, the effect of liquid mass fraction on pressure drop is plotted for the standard venturi design 2A only.

What is the difference between uncertainty and accuracy in In this post, i am interested in covering the details about how to measure flow using Orifice meter. In illuminance meter verification system, there are many factors that affect verification accuracy. As the fluid from the entry section of venturi meter flows into the converging section, its pressure keeps on reducing and attains a minimum value P2 when it enters the throat.

Abernethy et al. In industries it is used to measure the rate of flow of chemicals Venturi Meter is a device used for measuring the flow of the fluid. Downsizing using a meter that is smaller than the pipe is acceptable when the pipe is oversized and the process fluid is clean with a low viscosity.

Introduction to Orifice Flow Meter Calculation Orifice flow meters are used to determine a liquid or gas flow rate by measuring the differential pressure P 1 - P 2 across the orifice plate. The Feedback P may be used instead of the inlet head tank to increase the flow range.

Purpose: The purpose of this experiment is to illustrate the use of the venturi meter in measuring the flow of an incompressible liquid through a pipe. Venturi has been widely used for measuring flow rate in a variety of engineering applications since pressure loss is relatively small compared with other measuring method.


All three use a constriction in the flow path like an orifice plate to cause a pressure drop across the meter that can be measured and correlated with flow rate. In [1], calibration of orifice is discussed. The pitot meter also measures flow speed, but it forces the fluid to reach a stagnation point and abruptly change flow direction.

Define Coefficient of meter, C and state the theoretical value for venturi meter. Example: Alex measured the field to the nearest meter, and got a width of 6 m and a length of 8 m. You can use any combination of valves to provide flow through the Venturi meter.

Trial 1 and Trial 2 yielded a Cv of 0. The concentric orifice plate flow meter reduces the pressure by forcing the fluid through a thin plated circular opening CHE M Experiment No. For better comparisons, two separate trials were analyzed and Venturi coefficients for both were computed. This method consists of an application of machine learning techniques on Given a Venturi Meter, Cv , the Venturi coefficient can be determined to compare the actual and ideal values as per Bernoullis predictions, for a volume flow rate.

The pressure at the entrance to the meter is gauge and it is undesirable that the pressure should at any point, fall below absolute. A new solution to the radial transient heat conduction has been developed for analyzing a thermal conductivity probe TCP. Data can not be fully understood until the associated uncertainties are unde rstood.

Measurements and Error Analysis. A new method for the determination of gas and liquid flow rates in vertical upward gas-liquid pipe flows has been proposed.

In addition, by measuring the pressure at various points along the venturi meter, the energy losses through the venturi meter can be determined. An 8-inch MagMaster meter has been installed in series with a Venturi device which is spanned for MGD, with a transmitter upper range of An uncertainty analysis should be applied to all calibrations.

An example discharge curve is shown for an 8-inch in venturi meter on figure Excel spreadsheets are convenient for differential pressure flow meter calculations, for meters such as the commonly used orifice flow meter and venturi meter. Students measure flow using a Venturi meter, an orifice plate meter and a rotameter. Venturi Flowmeter Calculator: A fluid passing through smoothly varying constrictions experience changes in velocity and pressure.

And i am starting it from the scratch. Approved for public release locally and within seven days of the Ap cell and local meter calibration. The orifice, nozzle and venturi flow rate meters use the Bernoulli Equation to calculate fluid flow rate using pressure difference through obstructions in the flow Sponsored Links In a flow metering device based on the Bernoulli Equation the downstream pressure after an obstruction will be lower than the upstream pressure before.

Water supply development in northern New Jersey was an active area of investment in the late 19th century. Comment on Graph 1.

In addition, wireless hand tools are used by the roving operators, and external PCs are available to engineers for their process modeling and simulation purposes. To treat software as an extra and not to include the preparation of the unique control algorithms, faceplates, and graphic displays in the basic bid can lead to serious problems.

In such cases the cost of plugging the software holes can exceed the total hardware cost of the system. Well, in many cases it is not; only its license is.

Well, what this language often means is that the cost of integrating these packages into the overall control system is an extra. So, on the one hand, this age of plantwide digital networks and their associated advanced controls has opened the door for the great opportunities provided by optimization.

I will discuss below some of the areas in which the next decade should bring improvements in the quality and intelligence of the components that make up our control systems. I will discuss the need for better testing and performance standards and the improvements needed in the sensors, analyzers, transmitters, and control valves. Connectivity and Integration Utilizing our digital buses, one can plug in a PC laptop or use a wireless hand tool and instantly access all the data, displays, and intelligence that reside anywhere in a DCS network.

The modern control systems of most newly built plants consist of four levels of automation. We the users should also require that the manufacturers always state not only the inaccuracy of their products but also the rangeability over which that inaccuracy statement is valid. Introduction This is because the performance of the control loop is much affected not only by trim wear in control valves but also by stem sticking caused by packing friction, valve hysteresis, and air leakage in the actuator.

The stability of the control loop also depends on the gain of the valve during the tuning of the loop. In order for a control loop to be stable, the loop is tuned the gain of the controller is adjusted to make the gain product of the loop components to equal about 0.

For this reason, the loop must be compensated for the gain characteristics of the valve; such compensation is possible only if the valve characteristics are accurately known. For the above reasons, it is desirable that the users and the professional societies of ACE engineers put pressure on the manufacturers to accurately determine the characteristics of their valves. This is particularly true for the rangeability of control valves. Smarter Valves A traditional valve positioner serves only the purpose of maintaining a valve at its intended opening.

Digital valve controllers, on the other hand, provide the ability to collect and analyze data about valve position, valve operating characteristics, and valve performance trending. They also provide two-way digital communication to enable diagnostics of the entire valve assembly and instrument. Section 6. If the sensors of the intelligent control valve are connected to a PID chip mounted on the valve, the smart valve becomes a local control loop. In many cases there is a need for multiple-range and multiple-reference units.

Improved On-Line Analyzers In the area of continuous on-line analysis, further development is needed to extend the capabilities of probe-type analyzers. More and more analyzers should become self-calibrating, self-diagnosing, and modular in their design. In order to lower maintenance costs, analyzers should also be made more modular for ease of replacement and should be provided with the intelligence to identify their defective modules.

The human-machine interfaces HMIs in the control rooms are only as good as the ability of the operators to use them.

The hand, the psychological characteristics, the hearing, and color discrimination capability of the human operator must all be part of the design. Even more importantly, the design should also consider the personality and education of the average operator. Today, when a single operator is expected to oversee the operation of processes having hundreds if not thousands of variables, the operator must be provided with diagnostic, trend, and historical data in an easily understandable and familiar format.

For that purpose, it is advisable to provide in the control room a large display panel, on which as one of the options the operation of the whole plant can be displayed. As the operator focuses in on smaller and smaller sections of the plant, the information content of the display should increase. Another essential feature of modern control systems is their suitability for smooth growth of the plant. This capability is very important in process control because plants are ever expanding and therefore their control systems must also grow with the expansions.

A modular approach to operator stations makes the expansion of the plant easier. Yet in the coming decade much more improvement is expected both in multivariable unit operations control and in model-based optimization. Plant-Wide Modeling and Optimization In addition to its role in providing better control, process modeling and simulation can also improve the training of operators.

If the simulation model is accurate and if it integrates the dynamics of the process with that of its control system, it can be used to train operators for plant startup without risking the consequences of their inexperience. Needless to say, the building of good models is expensive, but once prepared, they are very valuable. Business- or enterprise-wide optimization includes the model of not only the manufacturing process, but also the optimization of the raw material supply chain and of the packaging and product distribution chain.

Plant-wide optimization also involves more than the optimization of the unit processes because it must also consider documentation, maintenance, production scheduling, and quality management considerations. Naturally, it should be kept in mind that modeling and optimization can only be achieved when the control loops are correctly tuned, the measurements are sampled fast enough, and interactions between loops have been eliminated.

For example, in the section describing the methods of pumping station Introduction optimization, it is pointed out that the lifetime operating cost of a pumping station is about a hundred times higher than its initial cost.

The returns on the optimization of other unit operations are similar, although not that high. It is for this reason that in the coming decade, optimization is expected to increase. When using multivariable envelopes for unit operation optimization, the individual variables of levels, pressures, and temperatures become only constraints, while the overall goal is to maximize the efficiency or productivity of the controlled process. Unit Operation Controllers of the Future The next decade could bring a building-block approach to control systems.

Once the particular software package was loaded, the unit controller would be customized by a menu-driven adapter package, organized in a question-and-answer format. During the customization phase, the user would answer questions on piping configuration, equipment sizes, material or heat balances, and the like.You can use any combination of valves to provide flow through the Venturi meter.

It is for this reason that in the coming decade, optimization is expected to increase. In resistance bulb terminology, it is the relationship of the resistance change of an RTD vs. They still stood in a 2-foot-tall pile on the corner of my desk.

By the mids the handbook was ready for another updated edition. Each meter was tested for accuracy with ten pipe wall offsets varying from a 0. Another essential feature of modern control systems is their suitability for smooth growth of the plant.
