Course Description

What is Custody flow meter?

Custody Transfer refers to the stage wherein ownership of a processed product is transferred from one company to another. This process is common amongst flow meter applications because it involves the transfer of money from one company to another.

What type of instrument can be used for custody transfer measurement?

It is peculiar because the accuracy requirements are more advanced than several other applications. Therefore, it is expedient for the custody transfer system to produce comprehensive and verified cargo reports, and this is attained by accurate flow measurements and calculations.
