The Engineer's Guide to DP Flow MeasurementDo you have custody transfer applications or other flow measurements requiring differential pressure (DP) technology? Consider digging into the 350 page The Engineer’s Guide to DP Flow Measurement (form fill in required).

This guide opens:

Differential pressure (DP) flow measurement has remained a popular and trustworthy technology for over 100 years due to its range of usability and reliable performance history. The Engineer’s Guide to DP Flow Measurement is intended to serve as a reference tool to aid in the selection and use of DP flow products for various applications. This resource offers foundational information for understanding DP flow measurement including basic concepts, theories, and equations. It also explores recommendations and installation best practices to help increase measurement accuracy, optimize plant efficiency, and solve common application challenges.

Chapters include:

  1. The DP Flow Meter
  2. Fluids and Flow Basic Terms and Concepts
  3. Theory of DP Flow
  4. Gas Applications
  5. Liquid Applications
  6. Steam Applications
  7. Primary Element Technologies
  8. Transmitter Technology
  9. Rosemount Primary Elements and Flow Meters
  10. DP Flow Meter Installation
  11. Calibration, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
  12. Engineering Data
  13. Pipe Data
  14. Conversions and Equivalents

Many of the experts featured here on the blog contributed to this engineer’s guide. Whether you are new to the field of process instrumentation and automation or an experienced veteran, there are sections in this guide that will advance your skills.

For example, someone new to the process industries will benefit from the early chapters. Traditional versus newer technologies are described and illustrated, such as traditional and integrated flow metering systems with pressure and temperature compensation.
