Coriolis Flow Meter Good Practice Guide
The purpose of this document is to provide the reader with guidance on the operation and calibration of Coriolis flow meters. Coriolis flow meters can be utilised for nearly all applications and have a growing market share in many different industries such as oil & gas, food & beverage, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals amongst others. One of the key advantages of Coriolis flow meters is that they provide a direct measurement of mass flowrate and product density with stated uncertainties as low as 0.05% for mass and 0.2 kg/m3 for density respectively. The exact specification differs by manufacturer and model type. In industry, mass flow measurement is often preferred to volume flow due to mass being independent of the process conditions such as pressure and temperature. Therefore, no correction factors need to be applied - and a possible source of error is eliminated.
