Calculations Liquid Flow (Table #51)

General Configuration for Liquid Flow Calculation

Configure the liquid flow calculation and enable it from the General page. Calculation: Enable/disable the liquid flow calculation here. Descriptor: Enter a text string that identifies the calculation. Meter ID: Enter a text string that identifies or names the device associated with the calculation. Flow Type: Select whether a turbine or orifice meter is used. API Table Used: Select the API table to be used for this calculation. Options are listed below.

Table 23/24 A Table 23/24 B Table 24 C Old Table 23/24 Table 23/24 E Table 53/54 A Table 53/54 B Table 54 C Old Table 53/54 Propylene (CH 11.3.3) Ethylene (API 2565) Ethylene (NBS 1045)

Turbine Pickup: If you selected turbine as the flow type, select a single or dual turbine meter pickup pulse.

SG Override: To use a live API/SG/density input, enter '0' in this field. Otherwise, enter the API/SG/density override value. Atmospheric Pressure: Enter the current atmospheric pressure in psi measured at the installation site. K-Factor: Enter the meter's K-Factor. Include HYC Fact: If you selected an API A/B table, enter the glass hydrometer correction factor. Refer to API Chapter 9 or other appropriate density/hydrometer standards for further explanation. Contract Hour: Enter the time of day that the flow computer stores an archive in the daily historical log and starts a new set of averages and accumulations for a new day. ASTM 1250 Selection: Select the ASTM standard being used (ASTM1250-1980 or ASTM 1250-2004). Meter Pulse Hz: This is a read-only field that displays the current meter pulse. Meter Accumulator Pulse: Connect this field to a live value (typically a #20-Physical Accumulator entry). Current Product Index: This field displays the index of the product that is currently running. Reference Temperature: Enter the correction temperature used to calculate SG at 60F or density at 15F. The default is to 60. BS&W % (Water Cut): Enter the volume percentage of BS&W (basic sediments and water). Meter Active Threshold Hz: This entry determines when a batch starts. If flowmeter input (Hz) is greater than this value, a batch will start. Pulse Deviation Threshold: This field is available if you selected a dual turbine meter pickup pulse. If pulse frequency exceeds this value, the system will begin comparing and totalizing error counts. Density Type: If measuring density, select the type. Options are listed below.

None 420 mA: If you select 420 mA as the density type, choose the input type (SG, API, Density) in the Density Input Select field. Density Calc #1#6: Select one of these options if you are using a densitometer and have configured a density calculation.

Density Input Select: Select the density input type. Options are: SG, API, density. Static Pressure: Enter the current line pressure measured on the pipe, or connect this field to a live value (typically a #16-Physical Analog Input entry). Temperature: Enter the temperature of the fluid, or connect this field to a live value (typically a #16-Physical Analog Input entry). Reference Density: If you selected ethylene or propylene as the API table being used, enter density value used to calculate net flow rate. Alpha T (E-6): If you selected a table C as the API table being used, enter the thermal expansion coefficient. Error Pulse Hz: If you selected a dual turbine meter pickup pulse, this field displays the current error pulse. Error Accumulator Pulse: If you selected a dual turbine meter pickup pulse, connect this field to a live value (typically a #20-Physical Accumulator entry).

Density Temperature Selection: Select whether the meter temperature or density temperature is being used. Density Pressure Selection: Select whether the meter pressure or density pressure is being used. Density Temperature: Enter the density temperature. Density Pressure: Enter the density pressure. Month Start Day: Enter the day of the month which starts a new contract month. Error Count Limit: If any unbalance exists in the two pulse trains and the error counts exceed this threshold, the AutoEXEC will issue an alarm. The error counts will be cleared at the end of a batch.
