Liquid Hydrocarbons - Dynamic Measurement - Statistical Control of Volumetric Metering Systems
Additional Comments: ENGLISH
Published By:International Organization for Standardization (ISO)
In dynamic measuring Systems the Performance of meters for liquid hydrocarbons will vary with changes in flow conditions, viz. flowrate, viscosity, temperature, pressure, density of product, and with mechanical wear.
This International Standard has been prepared as a guide for establishing and monitoring the Performance of such meters, using appropriate statistical control procedures for both central and on-line proving. These procedures may be applied to measurements made by any type of volumetric or mass metering System.
The procedures to be followed for collecting data, on which the control limits are based, are described. An alternative method for establishing the reliability of these data is described in ISO 7278-3.
Methods are described for calculating the warning and action control limits for the Charts covering the selected Performance characteristics, the application of these control Charts to subsequent routine measurements, and their interpretation. Worked examples are given in the appropriate central and on-line proving sections.
