An Emerson whitepaper, Fundamentals of Orifice Meter Measurement, shares the history of tried-and-true differential pressure (DP) measurement across an orifice plate (orifice plate flowmeters) to measure flow rate, which dates back to the end of the 1700s. The first recorded use of an orifice device for fluid measurement was in 1797 by Giovanni B. Venturi, […]

In upstream oil & gas production, flow measurements are critical for determining the health and longevity of the producing and injection wells. Many technologies such as multiphase flow meters and differential pressure (DP) measurements can be used. In a Processing magazine article, Coriolis Flowmeters for Wet Gas Measurement, Emerson’s Justin Hollingsworth describes another alternative, Coriolis […]
