Daniel® Liquid Turbine Flow Meters

Daniel Liquid Turbine Flow Meters are installed in custody transfer and fiscal
custody transfer measurement applications. Typical installations for Daniel
turbine flow meters include crude oil and refined product pipelines, marketing
terminals, aviation refuelers as well as gathering stations and tank farms.

Flow meter requirements for pipelines and marketing terminals are unique.
Daniel recognizes this and provides products designed specifically for each
of these demanding installations.

Marketing terminal and pipeline operators prefer Daniel turbine flow meters.
This preference is attributed to:

Lower installation and maintenance costs

Measurement redundancy

Decades of petroleum measurement expertise

Customer support around the world

Daniel® Turbine Flow Meter Advantages

Lower Installation and Maintenance Costs

With Daniel Liquid Turbine Flow Meters, installation costs are reduced due to
the unique design of the electronics housing; the Universal Mounting Box
(UMB). Minimizing electrical conduit or cabling and usually eliminating the
need for an additional electrical junction box achieve these savings. Typical
savings exceed $500 per meter installation.

Lower maintenance costs are enjoyed by end-users that have installed the
Series 1200 and 1500 Turbine Flow Meters. Lower costs are realized

Spare parts inventories are minimized since these two products

share the same pick-off and preamplifier;
downtime is minimized by enabling maintenance of pick-offs
and preamplifiers without disturbing conduit or cabling; and
installation design is simplified with both meters sharing the
same flange-to-flange dimension and electrical connections.

Daniel® Turbine Flow Meter Advantages

Measurement Redundancy
Downtime can have significant financial implications.
To reduce downtime, Daniel turbine meters offer a
number of redundancy combinations.

The Series 1200 Turbine Flow Meter can be

supplied with either single or dual pick-offs along
with the dual channel preamplifier, which is standard.
In many marketing terminal applications a single
pick-off is utilized. With the dual channel preamplifier
the second channel becomes a spare.

The Series 1500 Turbine Flow Meter offers a single

or dual UMB configuration. A dual UMB configuration
offers complete measurement redundancy without
compromising dual pulse signal transmission. This
flexibility allows pipeline operators to maintain the
meter, while continuing to measure without isolating
power to the second UMB.

How A Turbine Flow Meter Works

A turbine meter is comprised of a cylindrical housing that contains a rotor

mounted on a bearing and shaft assembly. As fluid passes smoothly through
the meter housing, it causes the rotor to spin with a rotational speed that is
proportional to the velocity of the fluid. The rotational speed is measured by
a magnetic pick-up or pick-ups, which are mounted in a boss on the meter
body. Rotor blades or rim buttons pass through the magnetic field of the
pick-up and generate a pulsing voltage in the coil of the pick-up assembly.
Each voltage pulse represents a discrete volume. The total numbers of
pulses collected over a period of time represent the total metered volume.

Both rimmed and un-rimmed rotors have a hub, bearing and a series of
angled blades to which the rim is attached where the option for a rim is
appropriate. The angle of the blades is typically set to minimize the drag of
the rotor, and to minimize the change in meter factor (reported rate of flow
per unit of revolution) across the operating flow range.

The bearings used in the rotor design can be stainless steel ball bearings or
tungsten carbide journal bearings. The choice of bearing is driven by the
type of service the meter will be used in. For low flow, clean product
applications, the stainless steel ball bearing is preferred. In severe
applications such as crude oil and aviation fuel, tungsten carbide journal
bearings are chosen due to the hardness and longevity of the bearing.

The Daniel liquid turbine families of meters have options where either
bearing type or an alternative rotor material can be selected for the
appropriate application.

Daniel® Series 1200 Turbine Flow Meter

The Series 1200 Turbine Flow Meter is specifically designed for marketing
terminal and fuel blending service where repeatability is a critical
requirement. The proven design of lightweight internals is ideally suited for
the applications found in terminal and load racks.

The meter provides a UMB with either one or two pick-offs and a
dual-channel preamplifier board. Most load rack measurement points
require a single pulse output. Having a redundant pick-off and preamplifier
circuit ensures continuous operation. This meter's simple design assures
high flow rates and extended flow range and sustained performance.

The Series 1200 Turbine Flow Meter can be installed horizontally or

vertically, allowing for installation in space-constrained applications. The
standard design of the Series 1200 meter includes a flow conditioning plate.
Many customers have found that this plate has greatly reduced or even
eliminated the need for the traditional flow conditioning normally used with
turbine meters.

The Series 1200 Flow Meter is available in ANSI classes 150 and 300 with
either carbon steel or stainless steel bodies. The meters are available in 1,
1.5, 2, 3 and 4 inch sizes.

This meter features a patented, expanding hanger that centers the internal
assembly in the meter body. A lightweight rotor assembly is included with
patented self-cleaning, flow-through bearing design. The standard meter is
available with stainless steel ball bearings. For severe applications,
tungsten carbide journal bearings are available as an option in the 3 and
4-inch sizes.

Key specifications include:

Capacity: 8.6 to 1430 BPH (6 to 1000 GPM)
Linearity: +/-0.25% for sizes 1 - 2 inches
+/- 0.15% for sizes 3 - 4 inches
Repeatability: +/-0.02%
Rangeability: 10:1
Hazardous Area Classification: CE, CSA, and UL approved
Metrology Approvals: Measurement Canada; NTEP;
and OIML; Other approvals

Daniel® Series 1500 Turbine Flow Meter

The Daniel Series 1500 Turbine Flow Meter is a rugged, reliable meter
designed for demanding crude oil and refined product pipeline applications.

The predecessor to the Series 1500 meter was the Daniel PT Turbine Flow
Meter. The Series 1500 Turbine Meter retains the proven internal assembly
from the PT meter along with the highly adaptable UMB.

Pipeline applications demand continuous, uninterrupted operation and often

require dual pulse fidelity checking. The Series 1500 meter offers a
standard UMB with a dual pulse output, with the pulse trains being 90o
electrically out of phase. A valuable option includes an additional UMB. The
second UMB permits complete measurement redundancy. The second UMB
can be configured to have dual pick-offs as well as a dual channel
preamplifier, resulting in a back-up system. This back-up system may be
used to continue measurement with pulse fidelity checking.

The internal assembly for the Series 1500 meter is comprised of a

dual-hangar design offering upstream and downstream support and positive
rotor centering. The standard bearing offering is a tungsten carbide journal
that offers exceptional longevity.

Key specifications include:

Rimmed or bladed rotor
Integral flow conditioning plate
Carbon steel or stainless steel (304 & 316 grades) meter bodies
Bi-directional flow measurement
304 or 316 stainless steel rotor assemblies

The meter is available in the following ANSI classes:

150 and 300 ANSI: 1 - 18 inches
600 ANSI 1 - 8 inches
900 ANSI 1 - 4 inches
1500 ANSI 1 - 2.5 inches

Note: Sizes 1 to 2.5-inches are available in stainless steel

material only.

The Series 1500 Turbine Flow Meter may be supplied in a

dual UMB configuration. Flexible outputs are offered with
1, 2, 3 or 4 phased pulse outputs. Each UMB housing has
one or two pick-offs and a dual channel preamplifier. In
this configuration the Series 1500 Turbine Flow Meter offers
up to four matched pulse outputs to accommodate a wide
variety of metering and meter proving requirements.
