Manual of Petroleum Measurement Standards Chapter 9.4-Continuous Density Measurement Under Dynamic (Flowing) Conditions
|Publication Date:||1 January 2018|
This standard covers the continuous on-line determination and application of flowing liquid densities for custody transfer. This standard covers liquid and dense phase fluids, including: natural gas liquids, refined products, chemicals, crude oil, and other liquid products commonly encountered in the petroleum industry. This document does not apply to the density measurement of natural gas, LNG, multiphase mixtures, semi-solid liquids such as asphalt, and solids such as coke and slurries.
This standard also provides criteria and procedures for designing, installing, operating, and proving continuous on-line density measurement systems for custody transfer. This standard also discusses the different levels and requirements of accuracy for various applications.
