MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS

Leading Edge Flow Meter (LEFM) technology developed by Westinghouse in the 1960s First chordal multipath meter patent issued to Westinghouse in 1971 LEFM technology acquired by Caldon in 1989 New custody transfer product line introduced in 1999 Caldon acquired by Cameron in 2006 Caldon ISO 17025 approved Liquid Calibration Laboratory. Flexibility in scheduling customer calibrations, thus control over complete delivery schedule Gas Meter employs same proven chord configuration as liquid family

LEFM 380Ci Custody Transfer GUSM


Uncertainty: 0.1% relative to calibration facility Operational Benefits
Unique Non-Wetted isolated transducers (Titanium pressure boundary), designed with health and safety in mind Transducers capsules can be inspected or replaced under line conditions; no high pressure extractor tools required. Designed for optimum safety whilst avoiding unnecessary depressurization and emissions. Virtually eliminates transducer failures. Transducers not susceptible to explosive de-compression during plant emergency shut down Full Bore meter On application upstream lengths can be shortened to 5D LCD Display with resettable and non-resettable Totals Tolerant to corrosive compounds such as H2S No exposed transducer cabling for optimum protection Special Coating prevents deposits from forming increasing calibration intervals (Resists corrosion, prevents contamination)

Installation Benefits
8-Path Dual plane design for swirl immunity Proven Gaussian Chordal Integration employed in LEFM since early development by Westinghouse in the1960s Can be used without deploying a flow conditioner thus saving on compression/ energy costs Eliminates maintenance associated with flow conditioner fouling

LEFM 240CiRN or 280CiRN Reduced Bore Meter


Global Installed Base 240CiRN (4 Path) or 280CiRN (8 path) Can be calibrated with direct proving against compact and ball provers, using volumes/runs more than 6 times smaller than conventional USM technology. Designed for high viscosity applications Typical Re < 10,000 Solves the hydraulic problems in transition such that we can achieve performance within +/- 0.15% or +/- 0.12 % through the transition region Approximately still 50% pressure loss of a Turbine meter/ bundle without considering turbine strainer requirements On application certified custody transfer accuracy can be now be achieved with Caldon meters for oils of up to 3,000 cSt viscosity!

LEFM 280CiLT-R LNG METER


8-path Flowmeter designed exclusively for Liquefied Natural Gas Proven LNG application references Designed for swirl immunity Transducer design optimised for LNG measurement Proper calibration is of vital importance as the meters will be used without an in-situ prover. Caldons calibration methodology for LNG is based on velocity profile, not Reynolds number facilitated by unique key characteristics of meter design NMi, the Dutch weights and measures authority, have reviewed Caldons methodology and test data Full consideration of the flow and thermal effects The report states a maximum uncertainty of +/- 0.18%
