Fluid Flow Measurement
A Practical Guide to Accurate Flow Measurement
- Paul J. LaNasa, Consultant, Houston, TX, USA
- E. Loy Upp, Former Vice President and Director of Technology, Daniel Industries, and Consultant, Houston, TX, USA
There is a tendency to approach flow measurement as a highly theoretical and technical subject, but what most influences quality measurement is the practical application of meters, metering principles, and quality metering equipment. Fluid Flow Measurement reviews basic laws and principles, an overview of the physical characteristics and behaviour of gases and liquids, and takes a look at the dynamics of flow. The author examines applications of specific meters, readout, and related devices and proving systems. He also offers practical guidelines for the meter in use, condition of the fluid, details of the entire metering system, installation and operation, and the timing and quality of maintenance.
This book is dedicated to condensing and sharing the author's extensive experience in solving flow measurement problems with design engineers, operating personnel-from top supervisors to the newest testers-academic engineers, flow meter equipment manufacturers, worldwide practitioners, theorists, auditors, and people just getting into the business.
