Autocontrol Americas Inc. Oﬀers metering skid for Liquid & Gas measuring based on customer requirements where ﬁscal metering / custody transfer solution are pre-assembled on a steel structure required additional calibration options (proving system) shall be included in skid compliance with OIML & API standards.
During custody transfer, accuracy is of great importance to both the company delivering the material and the eventual recipient, when transferring a material Hydrocarbons.
CTM – Custody Transfer Meter is deﬁned as a meter designed, installed, and operated to meet the requirements for custody transfer as per standard measurement.
Custody transfer requires an entire metering system that is designed and engineered for measuring the product application, not just ﬂow meters.
The custody transfer metering skid is an integrated piping system supported on a structural base. It accommodates all primary measurement instruments including the ﬂow meters, pressure transmitters, temperature transmitters and the MOV’s, Provers, switcher straight length.
Flow proﬁler, piping and structural design, fabrication and testing shall be in line with project speciﬁcations and applicable codes and standards keeping in view the functional requirements.
The metering cabinets are located in the control room in a safe area. The panel houses the ﬂow computers, station computers, GC controllers, PLC, HMI and Ethernet switches with interface to DCS. All ﬂow and energy calculations are done by the ﬂow computers which collect data of various signals from skids and analyzer house. The station computers compile the station values and generate reports.
