Error Free Liquid Flow Diverters for Calibration Facilities (FEDSM2002-31085)



Tsyh Tyan Yeh, Aaron N. Johnson, Pedro I. Espina, N Yende


A design for diverter valves in gravimetric liquid flow calibration facilities is proposed. The concept makes use of repeated unidirectional motions of the diverter valve to reduce errors associated with asymmetry in the diverter valve motion and in the liquid jet velocity profile. Various implementation examples are provided and their benefits are discussed.
