A natural gas flow meter is mainly used for inline measurement of natural gas flow. The natural gas flow meter is mainly used for industrial production and trade settlement.
At present, the flowmeter products used for natural gas flow measurement roughly include: gas waist wheel flowmeter, gas turbine flowmeter, precession vortex flowmeter, thermal mass flowmeter, vortex flowmeter, ultrasonic flowmeter and orifice flowmeter Wait. Let’s make a simple comparison on the use of these flow meters.
Sino-Inst offers a variety of Natural gas flow meters for flow measurement. If you have any questions, please contact our sales engineers.

Natural Gas Flow Meter Types
The flow measurement of natural gas is currently mainly used in trade settlement and is relatively common. my country’s natural gas trade measurement is based on the volume or energy method under the legally required quality indicators for transfer measurement. At this stage, volume measurement is basically the main method.
At present, the flowmeter products used for natural gas flow measurement generally include: gas waist wheel flowmeter, gas turbine flowmeter, precession vortex flowmeter, vortex flowmeter, ultrasonic flowmeter and orifice flowmeter.

Let’s make a simple comparison on the use of these flow meters.
In short, these 8 types of flowmeters have their own advantages and their shortcomings in the measurement of natural gas flow.

Natural gas flow meter selection
Faced with so many varieties of natural gas flow meters, the selection has become a difficult problem.How to scientifically and objectively select the best flowmeter is a problem that needs attention.
We believe that the selection should follow appropriate rules. Try to avoid misleading propaganda from manufacturers. Blindly choose expensive ones.
Find a flow meter that is just right for yourself, it is your ideal flow meter.
Natural gas flow meter selection can be carried out in five aspects: Instrument performance. Fluid characteristics. Installation conditions. Environmental conditions and economic factors.
The various considerations are as follows:
Performance aspects of natural gas flow meters:Accuracy. repeatability. linearity. range. pressure loss. upper and lower limit flow. signal output characteristics. response time, etc.
Fluid characteristics of natural gas flowmeter:
Fluid pressure, temperature, density, viscosity. lubricity, chemical properties, numbness. corrosion, fouling, dirt, gas compressibility. iso-index, specific heat capacity, electrical conductivity. speed of sound, mixed-phase flow, pulsating flow, etc.;
Installation conditions of natural gas flowmeter:
Pipeline layout direction, flow direction, upstream and downstream pipeline length. pipeline diameter, maintenance space, pipeline vibration. grounding, power supply, auxiliary equipment (filtration, sewage), explosion protection, etc.;
Environmental conditions for natural gas flow meters:
Environmental temperature, humidity, safety, electromagnetic interference, etc.;
Economic factors of natural gas flowmeter:
Purchase cost, installation cost, maintenance cost. calibration cost, service life, operating cost (energy consumption), spare parts, etc. Fluid vibration natural gas flowmeter. There are two types of this type of flowmeter, vortex flowmeter and precession (vortex precession) flowmeter.
Users can consider their actual situation when choosing, and analyze specific problems in detail. Choose the right flow meter product to ensure the correct measurement.
Of course, if you still have technical questions when selecting natural gas flow meters, please feel free to contact Sino-Inst sales engineers.
Portable natural gas flow meter
Currently, the Portable Gas flow meter is mainly products such as German FLEXIM and GE TransPort PT878GC. However, the cost of such products is very high.
Therefore, on the basis of cost control, we need to choose a suitable natural gas flow meter.
Although, we do not have a portable gas flow meter. But we have handheld ultrasonic liquid flow meters. Read More.
