Title (EN) SEPARATION TYPE MULTIPHASE FLOW METER APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DÉBITMÈTRE MULTIPHASIQUE DE TYPE À SÉPARATION
Abstract:
(EN) A separation type multiphase flow meter apparatus (10) comprising a separation module (18) arranged to at least partially separate a multiphase stream comprising water, hydrocarbon liquid and hydrocarbon gas into a first sub-stream comprising a gas fraction and a second sub-stream comprising a liquid fraction. The apparatus comprises a first metering dev ice (16) for measuring the flow rate of the first sub-stream, and a second metering device (17) for measuring the phase fraction and the flow rate of the second sub-stream, wherein the second metering device is arranged to measure the water-in-liquid ratio (WLR ) of the second sub-stream, wherein the apparatus is arranged to use the WLR measured by the second metering device as a measure also for the WLR of the first sub-stream, and wherein the cross-sectional flow area of the first metering device is larger than the cross-sectional flow area of the second metering device.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil débitmètre multiphasique de type à séparation (10) qui comprend un module de séparation (18) conçu pour séparer au moins partiellement un courant multiphase comprenant de l'eau, un hydrocarbure liquide et un hydrocarbure gazeux en un premier sous-courant comprenant une fraction gazeuse et un second sous-courant comprenant une fraction liquide. L'appareil comprend un premier dispositif de mesure (16) pour mesurer le débit du premier sous-courant et un second dispositif de mesure (17) pour mesurer la fraction de phase et le débit du second sous-courant, le second dispositif de mesure étant conçu pour mesurer le rapport eau-dans-liquide (EDL) du second sous-courant, l'appareil étant conçu pour utiliser l'EDL mesuré par le second dispositif de mesure également en tant que mesure pour l'EDL du premier sous-courant, et la surface d'écoulement transversale du premier dispositif de mesure étant plus grande que la surface d'écoulement transversale du second dispositif de mesure.
