McCrometer’s V-Cone Flow Meter is designed to reduce the upstream/downstream straight pipe run required by OrificePlates and Venturi Tubes by up to 70 per cent. This significant reduction inpipe requirements adds up to cost savings in materials and installation labor that reduce FPSO Vessel tonnage and the footprint of Subsea modules.  Using less pipe and reducing total weight also simplifies vessel balancing, making it easier to find the optimal location for flow meter installation. The V-Cone provides a stable flow profile for reliable measurement, featuring accuracy of ±0.5 per cent of actual flow and repeatability of ±0.1 per cent over the entire range. It is ideal for the measurement of liquid, steam or gas and is available for line sizes from 0.5 to 150 inches, with an unmatched range-ability. Its no-moving-parts design provides an extremely rugged instrument.
