Abstract:

The most problematic issue preventing the utilization of turbine flow meters to calculation the inventory of CFTs is the induction of air bubbles during the receipt of fuel from delivery trucks. Air bubbles displace fuel in the hose line and are recorded as total fuel volume by the receipt meter. Procedures for minimizing the error of measurement caused by air bubbles is analyzed in this paper.
