Pipe Flow Measurement (AIA# TCEPFM) (3 credit hours)
Those taking this course will gain knowledge about twelve different types of meters for measuring fluid flow rate in a closed conduit. They will learn about typical calculations for differential pressure meters and pitot tubes. They will learn the general principles of operation for each type and general advantages and disadvantages of each. Several categories of pipe flow measurement devices will be described and discussed including associated calculations with some of them.
Harlan Bengtson
  • Be able to calculate flow rate from measured pressure difference, fluid properties, and meter parameters, using the provided equations for venturi, orifice, and flow nozzle meters.

 

  • Be able to determine which type of ISO standard pressure tap locations are being used for a given orifice meter.

 

  • Be able to calculate the orifice coefficient, Co, for specified orifice and pipe diameters, pressure tap locations and fluid properties.

 

  • Know the relative advantages and disadvantages of venturi, orifice, and flow nozzle meters in comparison with each other.

 

  • Be able to estimate the density of a specified gas at specified temperature and pressure using the Ideal Gas Equation.

 

  • Know the general configuration and principle of operation of rotameters and positive displacement, electromagnetic, target, turbine, vortex, and ultrasonic meters.

 

  • Know recommended applications for each of the type of flow meter discussed in this course.

 

  • Be familiar with the general characteristics of the types of flow meters discussed in this course, as summarized in Table 2 in the course content.
