Applications

Flow Management Devices Small Volume Unidirectional Captive Displacement Provers are generally used in the petroleum and petrochemical industries to measure liquid products.

Small Volume Provers can be used with the following flow meter types:

  • Coriolis Meters
  • Positive Displacement Meters
  • Liquid Ultrasonic Meters
  • Turbine Meters
  • Multi-Viscosity Turbine Meters

FMD’s Provers are commonly used for the following hydrocarbon products:

  • Bitumen
  • Butane
  • Condensate
  • Crude Oil - Light (API > 31.1)
  • Crude Oil – Medium (API 22.3 – 31.1)
  • Crude Oil – Heavy (API < 22.3)
  • Crude Oil – Extra Heavy (API < 10.0)
  • Diesel
  • Ethane
  • Ethylene
  • Fuel Oil
  • Gasoline
  • Isobutane
  • Jet Fuel
  • Kerosene
  • Low Temperature Hydrocarbon Gas Liquids (HGLs)
  • LPGs
  • Methane
  • Methanol
  • NGL
  • Naphtha
  • Petrochemicals
  • Propane
  • Propylene
  • Refined Products
  • Other Products (contact factory)
