Abstract [en]

Zero-flow performance was tested on a new sing-around flowmeter. Design considerations were made to correct for the influences of speed of sound and use was made of reciprocity. The meter was tested from 1 000 to 20 000 sing-around loops, the loop period being approximately 64 μs. To investigate averaging phenomena, 1-100 primary velocity values were averaged to form one value. The temperature range tested was 2-45°C, with measurements at 5°C intervals. The measurements show a zero-flow stability of better than ±0.6 mms-1 (± 1lh-1 for 25 mm diameter pipe) over the entire temperature range. The standard deviation at each temperature tested was less than 0.45 mm s-1. This implies that flow velocities as low as 6 cm s-1 (100 lh-1, 25 mm diameter pipe) could be measured with an accuracy of better than ±1%. The tests were made with water, but equivalent results are expected for other liquids as well as gases.
