Whether measuring flow rate, volume or any of the other myriad process variables IRL have the means to do so with confidence. The flow meter rental fleet covers technologies from positive displacement and turbine meters to the new generation of ultrasonic and coriolis meters. These technologies along with in house application engineering ensure that the most suitable technology is provided and that both accuracies and confidence in the measurement are at the highest level possible.
Gas flow measurement does not lend itself to a one size fits all approach. The effects of pressure, temperature and compressibility can compromise measurements if not accounted for and when high accuracy is required. IRL's gas flow meter rental fleet covers coriolis, ultrasonic, differential pressure, cone, vortex, turbine meters and orifice plates. The range of available equipment allows an approach that balances function and cost against the degree of complexity required to achieve a measurement in the most efficient manner possible. IRL's experience in the measurement of wet hydrocarbon gas, high pressure nitrogen blow downs, air compressor delivery rates, annular gas cap bleed off is unrivalled within the market place.
For liquid measurement IRL offer an extensive range of meters led by the robust and highly accurate coriolis through to industry standard turbine meters. Along with typical water, oil, glycol measurements IRL specialise in the traditionally hard to achieve liquid measurement applications such as low flow rates or aggressive/abrasive fluids. Past applications have included high concentration sulphuric acid, water and oil based drilling muds, liquids with slug flow gas, high rate/high pressure fluid injection and flow rates as low as 0.008 litres/min.
With an in house calibration, testing and laboratory facilities IRL offer a service that covers all aspects of flow metrology. Equipment is supplied configured for your application along with all applicable certification and documentation. In addition pre-mobilisation ATEX inspections are performed to suit the deployment area zoning. Once a metering solution has been engineered IRL's applications team are able to provide technical support/verification of data or to mobilise a measurement engineer for the operation or as part of a larger team.
IRL's varied and diverse experience, extensive equipment base, coupled with experience in well service applications place them at the forefront of flow measurement applications both within and beyond the oil and gas sector.
