This report covers the first phase of a two-phase project being undertaken by SGS Redwood under the sponsorship of the Institute of Petroleum. The project examines the performance of various types of meters in loading gantry installations. During the first phase, a PD meter, a straight-bladed turbine meter, a helically-bladed turbine meter and a Coriolis meter were tested using gas oil.The most important characteristics of loading gantries (particularly road loading gantries) are that the space available for the meter and itsÆ associated components is generally very restricted, and that the batch volumes are relative small. These characteristics compromise the performance of many types of meter. Phase two of the project will provide valuable information on other products.
