Density

• ± 0.2 kg/m3 directly from the factory and “out-of-the-box”


• No need to purchase any special options to achieve this accuracy
• No need to field density calibrate to achieve this accuracy

• 3rd party type tested on density at H&D Fitzgerald in the UK


• Validation of our density accuracy claim
• Tested on multiple fluids of varying densities and viscosities

Promass Q delivers optimal density measurement performance as a standard, and is


supported with third party proof!

Density Performance in the “Real World”

• Paper specs aside Promass Q provides “real density” performance in the “real world”!
• Maintaining the best performing density specification against:
• changing process densities
• changing process viscosities
• changing process pressures
• changing temperatures (atmospheric and process)

Pressure Drop Specifications

Promass Q offers the highest flowrates at the lowest pressure drops

Opens the ability to utilize smaller meters with less pressure loss!

Slide 14 04/19/2017 Endress+Hauser Kyle Kergen


Promass Q Webinar

Useable Turndown Explained

“Useable” Turndown: Being defined as the flowrates between which the Coriolis meter
flat specs to ±0.1% at the low end, to where it hits 1 bar pressure drop at the high end.

“Useable Turndown”

Flow at which the


pressure drop hits 1
bar

Flow at which
accuracy rolls
away from 0.1%

Slide 15 04/19/2017 Endress+Hauser Kyle Kergen


Promass Q Webinar

Useable Turndown

Reduced zero points combined with a decreased overall pressure drops resulting in
the widest usable turndowns available in flow metering.

“Useable Turndown”

Size Turndown Flow @ 0.1% Flow @ 1 bar


DN 25 48:1 360 kg/h 17 500 kg/h

DN 50 39:1 1800 kg/h 71 000 kg/h

DN 80 33:1 5400 kg/h 182 000 kg/h

DN 100 43:1 11 500 kg/h 495 000 kg/h

Entrained Gas Key Messages

An innovative meter design combined with Multi-Frequency Technology (MFT)


helps to reduce errors from entrained gas.
• Targeted at continuously dispersed entrained bubbles that are held in the fluid due to high
viscosity or that foam when flowing.
• Not a solution for large free forming bubbles that can occur in the form of slug or plug flows.
• A proactive and practical approach to eliminating sources of large free forming bubbles and slugs is
still necessary and prudent for customers.

Entrained gas type Characteristic


• Periodic, coalesced bubbles
Slug flow
• Process upsets, tank stripping, wellhead
• Continuous distributed bubbles
Bubble flow
• Gas break out, flashing, foaming, emulsion

Accuracy Statements & GVF

• All three of the above have 15% GVF.


• Will a Coriolis meter respond in the same way to these situations?
• No. It cannot due to the differing motion of the fluid relative to the tube motion.

• Over simplification of reality can be misleading. Making a hard stated accuracy


specification is not responsible nor is it especially useful.

Safety – Flange Pressure Rating

Promass Q is constructed from stainless steel flanges of AMSE B16.5 material group 2.2 (316L
stainless steel) but rated to the equivalent flange pressure rating of ASME B16.5 material group
1.1 (carbon steel) in ASME Class 150#, 300#, 600#.
ASME B16.5 Class 600# Example

ASME B16.5
Temp Promass Q
Material Gr 1.1
-196°C - 102.1 bar
20°C 102.1 bar 102.1 bar
50°C 100.2 bar 100.2 bar
100°C 93.2 bar 93.2 bar
150°C 90.2 bar 90.2 bar
200°C 87.6 bar 87.6 bar

Can be applied in carbon steel pipelines without pressure de-rating the line!

Volume Proving

• Hydrocarbon custody transfer is often coupled closely to volume based proving.


• The high immunity to changing process conditions (P&T) and stability on varying fluid properties
(density and viscosity) helps ensure meeting the API MPMS chapter 4.8 recommendations.

Other Applications – Fluid Types & Entrained Gas

• Heavy crudes and heavy fuel oils:


• These fluids, due to their high viscosity, easily trap and hold onto bubbles and entrained gas

• Light hydrocarbons and NGLS:


• These light fluids can easily cavitate when flowing
• Prone to compressibility effects (ethylene)

• LNG and other cryogenics:


• Can contain bubbles or easily boil or gas when flowing
