Metering cryogenic liquids accurately can be done with a turbine meter, and the turbine meter can be accurately proved with a bidirectional piston prover, according to a research project conducted with liquid nitrogen by Humble Pipe Line Co. The combined repeatability of the 1 in. meter and 100 gal prover tested varied between a minimum of 0.008% on three consecutive round-trip runs at 58 gpm and a maximum of 0.11% on eight consecutive round-trip runs of the prover displacer at 71 gpm. The design factors, cool-down procedure, data recording, test results, and costs for installing prover facilities for turbine meters are discussed.
