API H00004 MPMS DRAFT
Manual of Petroleum Measurement Standards - Draft Standard - Measurement of Single-Phase, Intermediate and Finished Hydrocarbon Fluids by Coriolis Meters
|Publication Date:||1 November 2000|
1.1 This draft standard is applicable to custody transfer applications for single-phase hydrocarbon liquids and dense-phase fluids. This draft standard excludes measurement of crude oil. Topics covered are:
a. Applicable API standards used in the operation of Coriolis meters.
b. Proving and verification using both mass and volume-based methods.
1.2 The mass and volume-based calculation procedures for proving and quantity determination are included in Appendix E.
1.3 Although the Coriolis meter is capable of simultaneously determining density, this document does not address its use as a stand-alone densitometer. See API MPMS Chapter 14, Section 6 for this type of application. The measured density from the Coriolis meter is used to convert mass to volume.
