Summary:
A Metering Research Facility (MRF) to support research and testing needs of the natural gas industry in the area of flow measurement at field installations is described. For a MRF to cover the appropriate range of test and operational conditions, two separate natural gas recirculation flow loops are required: a small diameter Low Pressure Loop (LPL) with initial flow rates up to 6MMSCFD, and a large diameter High Pressure Loop (HLP) with initial flow capabilities up to 165MMSCFD. All major mechanical and electrical components were specified and engineering designs completed in sufficient detail to provide for construction and fabrication drawings. Operating ranges for the Stage I LPL are pressures up to 200 psia, temperatures from 40°F to 120°F, flow rates to 6MMSCFD, and Reynolds number to 1.1 million. Corresponding ranges for HPL are pressures to 1440 psig, temperatures from 20°F to 120o°F, flow rates to 165MMSCFD, and Reynolds number in excess of 14 million. In the LPL, a state-of-the-art gyroscopic balance and computer-controlled fast acting flow diversion system provide primary mass flow measurement with an accuracy of better than 0.25%. A similar primary calibration system is planned for Stage II of the HPL.
