Speakers of High Accuracy Flow Management Seminar

Marc Schmidt, NMI Certin B.V.

It takes more than a good meter to make a good measurementIn the world of measurement we see that the focus is mostly on the meter. Although the meter plays a significant role in the complete measurement, we cannot simply ignore the rest of the measurement system. During the presentation I will go into more detail of what effects you can encounter when you look at the complete measurement system.

Sjoerd Diepen, Spirit IT

Monitoring system uncertainty in real-timeSystem uncertainties are usually very static and derived during design stage of the system only. Once in use, there are all kinds of contributing factors that influence the actual uncertainty. We present an implementation of real-time uncertainty feedback using the SmartCen™ Human Machine Interface which is jointly developed with Petronas.

Frank Frenzel, ABB Germany

High Accuracy Flow measurement with Coriolis FlowmetersWhen it comes to high accuracy flow measurement the Coriolis flow technology represents the most accurate, most common and easiest flow principle in the industry. In addition it gives you a window into the process that can give you many insights and additional intelligence. This presentation gives an overview as well as practical experience.

Han van Dal, Spirit IT

1, 2 and 3 phase flow computingAn overview of recent developments in high-accuracy flow computations for oil, gas and water mixtures.

Nunzio Bonavita, ABB Italy

Radioactive-free Solutions for High Accuracy Multiphase Flow MeteringIn the last years, ABB entered into the Multiphase Flow Metering arena with VIS, an innovative gamma-free multiphase flowmeter whose specific design and characteristics make it perfectly suited for high gas content (Wet-gas) streams.The talk will describe the underlying technology (Isokinetic Sampling), the peculiar design features and inherent advantages and the further developments which aim extending the coverage to other market segments.

Mon van Gijzel, ABB Belgium

NGC8200 micro-Gas chromatographWith its small footprint and high robustness, it has a superior precision and outperforms the industry standards. Any user can install, use and operate the system thanks to its super friendly software interface. This solution has the smallest footprint in the market and the installation can be done in only 3 simple steps.

Frans Doorman

The experience with accurate measurement by an end-userThis presentation will high-light the experience with accurate measurement of large volumes of natural gas from an end-user’s perspective. An introduction will be given to a “strong- and weak points” analysis of metering installations. And some examples will be given from things that went wrong nevertheless.
