The ISO 5167 Story

In the UK most natural gas is measured at least once using an orifice plate: each year perhaps £25 billion of natural gas is so metered with an uncertainty of about £250 million.

NEL and others have done work over decades to ensure that ISO 5167 is correct, that is fully justified, neither inadequately restrictive, causing error, nor too restrictive, causing unnecessary expense.

Flow Measurement and Fluid Mechanics Research Centre

A new UK flow measurement research centre will open in April 2016. It will prioritise the development and testing of new concepts with a key focus on developing impact in three significant areas:

Novel Measurement Techniques for Complex Flows
Flow Measurement Uncertainty and Diagnostics
Regimes in Multi-Component Flows

2016 Research Funding Opportunities in Europe

In 2016, there will be three calls for metrology research proposals under  EMPIR (European Metrology Programme for Innovation & Research) that may be of interest to FMI members.  These are on the general themes of:- Metrology for Energy – €20m EU support available Metrology for Environment – €20m Normative (research for metrology standardisation) – €4.6m […]

Facilities for Testing and Reseach

The Infrastructure Group is carrying out a study to establish which test and research facilities exist. The results will be freely available and will help FMI members find the most suitable facility for their own work.
