LIQUID FLOW METER CALIBRATIONS WITH NIST's 15 kg/s WATER FLOW STANDARD

June 15, 2021
Author(s)
Jodie Gail Pope, Aaron Johnson, James Filla, Vern E. Bean, Michael R. Moldover, Joey Boyd, Christopher J. Crowley, Iosif Isaakovich Shinder, Keith A. Gillis, John D. Wright
We describe the 15 kg/s water flow calibration standard operated by the Fluid Metrology Group of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to calibrate liquid flow meters for customers. The 15 kg/s standard is a dynamic, gravimetric, liquid

Modeling Temperature Effects on a Coriolis Mass Flowmeter

September 2, 2020
Author(s)
Fabio O. Costa, Jodie Gail Pope, Keith A. Gillis
Coriolis mass flowmeters are known to be stable, have low uncertainty (± 0.1 %), and are insensitive to fluid properties. This meter type is used for many applications, including as transfer standards for proficiency testing and liquified natural gas (LNG)

Progress Towards a Gas-Flow Standard using Microwave and Acoustic Resonances

July 16, 2019
Author(s)
Jodie G. Pope, Keith A. Gillis, Michael R. Moldover, Eric Harman, James Mehl
We describe our progress in the development of a novel gas flow standard using the acoustic and microwave resonances of a 1.85 m3, nearly-spherical, steel vessel at pressures up to 7 MPa. For flow calibrations using pressure and acoustic frequency

Characterizing Gas-Collection Volumes with Acoustic and Microwave Resonances

March 27, 2018
Author(s)
Jodie Gail Pope, Keith A. Gillis, Michael R. Moldover, J B. Mehl, Eric Harman
We characterized a 1.8 m3, nearly-spherical, steel shell at pressures up to 7 MPa for use as a gas flow standard. For pressure, volume, temperature, and time measurements, the shell's cavity will collect gas; for blow-down measurements, the shell will be a

Hydrogen Field Test Standard: Laboratory and Field Performance

November 10, 2015
Author(s)
Jodie G. Pope, John D. Wright
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) developed a prototype field test standard (FTS) that incorporates three test methods that could be used by state weights and measures inspectors to periodically test retail hydrogen dispensers, much

NIST's Fully Dynamic Gravimetric Liquid Flowmeter Standard.

April 13, 2015
Author(s)
Jodie G. Pope, Aaron N. Johnson, Bernard J. Filla, Joey T. Boyd, Vern E. Bean, Christopher J. Crowley
We describe a new dynamic, gravimetric, liquid flow standard (LFS) that determines flow by measuring the rate of change of the liquid mass accumulating in a collection tank. The LFS is a fully- automated,15 kg/s system that uses a proportional–integral

Hydrogen Field Test Standard: Laboratory Performance

April 14, 2014
Author(s)
Jodie G. Pope, John D. Wright
NIST developed a prototype field test standard (FTS) that incorporates three test methods that could be used by state weights and measures inspectors to periodically test retail hydrogen dispensers, much as gasoline dispensers are tested today. The three

Liquid Piston Prover Uncertainty Analysis Spreadsheet

March 25, 2014
Author(s)
John D. Wright, Aaron N. Johnson, Jodie G. Pope
This publication is a spreadsheet that calculates the mass and volume flow uncertainty for a piston prover liquid flow standard based on user inputs of component uncertainties. The calculations use the basis equation and uncertainty analysis presented in

Performance of Coriolis Meters in Transient Gas Flows

March 17, 2014
Author(s)
Jodie G. Pope, John D. Wright
NIST evaluated the instantaneous and totalized flow measured by two commercial coriolis meters under transient flow, pressure, and temperature conditions using a Transient Flow Facility (TFF) developed for this purpose. During a simulated cascade fill of a

Liquid Flow Meter Calibrations with the 0.1 L/s and 2.5 L/s Piston Provers

January 15, 2014
Author(s)
Jodie G. Pope, John D. Wright, Aaron N. Johnson, Christopher J. Crowley
This document provides a description of the 2.5 L/s and 0.1 L/s liquid flow calibration standards operated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Fluid Metrology Group to provide flow meter calibrations for customers. The 0.1 L/s and

Removing the Hydrocarbon Liquid from Hydrocarbon Liquid Flow Standards

September 24, 2013
Author(s)
Jodie G. Pope, Christopher J. Crowley
NIST and other laboratories calibrate meters that measure the flow of valuable liquids such as petroleum products. Historically, these calibrations have been conducted using Stoddard solvent. Laboratories using Stoddard solvent for liquid-flow calibrations

Tests of the Extended Lee Model Using Three Different Turbine Meters

June 20, 2012
Author(s)
Jodie G. Pope, John D. Wright, Sherry D. Sheckels
We report additional tests of our “extended Lee model” for calibrating turbine meters. The model accounts for 1) Reynolds number (Re) dependent drag and lift, 2) bearing static drag and 3) bearing viscous drag. Initially, we tested this model using a dual

Extended Lee model for the turbine meter & calibrations with surrogate fluids

May 1, 2012
Author(s)
Jodie G. Pope, John D. Wright, Aaron N. Johnson, Michael R. Moldover
We developed a physical model termed the “extended Lee model” for calibrating turbine meters to account for 1) fluid drag on the rotor, 2) bearing static drag and 3) bearing viscous drag. We tested the extended Lee model using a dual rotor, 2.5 cm diameter
