An oil and Gas Flow Meter is A device installed in a pump manifold or treating line to measure the fluid flow rate. Oil and Gas Flow Meters can be used to measure the flow rates of liquid or gas and are available in various configurations and with different operating principles.
Flow Meters for Measuring Oil and Gas
Every day, a large amount of oil and gas are transported back and forth, refined, and then transported, as well as custody transfer. Difficult oil and gas flow measurement challenges such as corrosive media and harsh environments are our daily work. This requires mature and safe technology. Through instrument measurement and display monitoring, safe and reliable operation can be achieved.
Many types of flow meters are used to measure oil and gas flow. Each type has its advantages and disadvantages. The following content discusses these advantages and disadvantages.

Crude Oil Flow Meter
To measure crude oil, you can also consider the oval gear flowmeter first. If the precision is extremely high. Then you can use a mass flow meter.
The first mass flowmeter is required to measure the flow of crude oil in the supply pipe to the primary oil refining. The mass flow rate here is 1600 t/h.
The second meter is used to measure black oil in the pipeline to the Commodity and Raw Materials Park.
Additionally, the customer required simple installation, high accuracy, and smooth integration of the new meters into existing systems.

Flare Gas Mass Flow Measurement
The measurement of flare gas flow has always been the requirement of refinery, petrochemical, chemical and other various factories. Better measurement of flare gas flow. It can not only alleviate the pressure of enterprise safety management, but also reduce material loss, which is of great significance. However, there are many difficulties in flare gas measurement. Take a look at the following different measurement methods, there is always one that suits you.
Flare gas flow measurement method
There are three main methods to measure the flow of flare gas. These methods include the following types of flow meters:
- Ultrasonic flowmeter
- Thermal flow meter
- Differential pressure flowmeter
In global gas flow measurement applications. The growth rate of flare gas flow measurement is ranked second. With the increasingly stringent environmental requirements, the demand for flare gas measurement will continue to increase. In this field, ultrasonic flow meters, thermal flow meters, and differential pressure flow meters have their own advantages.
