Temperature Compensated (Net) Volume Direct from Mass Flow Meters
Marc A. Buttler
Temperature compensated (net) volume can currently be measured by mass flow meters using one of two methods: 1. Gross volume flow is measured by the device. Temperature of the fluid is measured. Net volume is then computed by applying traditional temperature compensation computations to the gross volume. 2. Mass flow is measured. Reference density of the fluid at reference temperature is known as a constant. Net volume is then computed by dividing the Mass by the reference density. For the types of meters that have direct mass measurement, the second method above has fewer sources of uncertainty and could be easier to test.
