Flow Meter Calibration

High volume flow meter calibration is required anywhere that volumetric flow measurement is important to operations or revenue. Thermal power plants represent a major user of flow meter calibration services, because thermal power output is computed through knowledge of steam pressure, temperature change, and flow.  For a plant that has a strict limitation in its license on how much power can be generated (such as a nuclear power plant), reduced error in flow meter calibration corresponds directly to higher power generation capability within the operating license and, therefore, more profit. Natural gas flow meter calibration is another significant need, because the revenues of natural gas supply companies will depend upon flow measurement.
