Abstract:

Turbine meter thery and practice are reviewed. Current proctices in calibrating turbine-type flow meters using water or a standard hydrocarbon to determine K factors for application to storable propellants are examined and found unsuitable for accurate work. Correlation data in literature and private files are inadequate. Criteria are provided for the design of cali bration facilities to provide direct calibration on propellants. An unusual technique recently developed in the petroleum industry may greatly increase both accuracy and reliability. Author
