Good for Any Process, Any Pressure
The TW volume flow output remains stable during all phases of testing -- including transitional periods when air, liquids and solids particulates (multi-phase flow) were present. The Coriolis provides a volume flow output during homogeneous flow but not during multi-phase flow.
The TW flow rate indication was consistent when compared to the Coriolis during periods of homogenous flow.
Turndown Greater Than 15:1
The TW is bidirectional. You cannot install it incorrectly. Turndown ratio is up to 15:1 with elements available in a (ß) beta ratio from 0.100 to 0.900 as standard. It complies with API 22.2 testing by recognized third party flow laboratory.
Proven To Handle Multiphase Flow
The results of a test run on November 6, 2015, provide proof that when used to measure mud flow under multiphase conditions, the TORUSWEDGE performes reliably and consistently. It would appear that the TW outperforms the Coriolis under the most difficult application conditions.
The objective of the test was to compare the performance of the TW against the Coriolis (the standard in the industry) in mudflow applications. The products were subjected to multiple flow rates and densities utilizing water, gum and Barite.
The TORUSWEDGE™ Mud Meter
The difficulties arising in flow measurement are numerous: non-homogeneous processes, abrasive materials, wide pressure variations, etc. The TORUSWEDGE (TW) Primary Flow Element sets the stage for revolutioniing modern flow measurement of liquids, gases, slurries, steam, and more by combining the best attributes of various proven techologies in to a single, proven device to solve these issues.
The reason for the unit’s durability lies in the circumferential ramp. As the process encounters the ramp, it is merged gradually into the orifice, and discharged along the downstream ramp. This ensures that the process never impacts a sharp, hard edge; thus, it is self-cleaning with a minimum of wear.
Figure 11 from the TORUSWEDGE™ / Coriolis Mud Flow Comparison Test run on November 6, 2015 shows that during the first barite injection, air is again introduced into the system creating a multi-phase flow. As a result of the multiphase flow, the Coriolis goes to zero. Throughout the process, the TW continues to output a stable, volumetric flow reading.
