In addition, through the pressure it is possible infer a series of other process variables, like level, volume, flow and density. Hence, ensuring the measurements at each industrial application to be accurate is critical and significant. Flow measurement is important to determine the amount of fluid quantities such as water, oil, gas and chemicals to be purchased and sold. Accurate flow measurements are often required, since flow measurements always involve huge amount of quantities that a measurement error of just 0.1% can make a difference of millions dollars. In addition, flow meters for fluid flow measurement have various applications that also affect measurement results including allocation metering, check metering, measurement of process, district heating, and fluid types. Each measurement has their unique conditions and fluid properties that need to be calculated carefully with expertise and sufficient experiences.
NMC Pressure & Flow Lab is expanding to cover the more areas such as the measurement of liquid density and the measurement of vacuum with a wider range. A density working standard traceable to the primary standard reference liquid is in the process of establishment, and a new vacuum system is also under construction.
Pressure & Flow Laboratory at NMC has built the facilities for
pressure, vacuum, gas, liquid, air velocity measurements and has
proactively helped industry to solve industrial measurement
issues through measurements and calibration services, consultancy and
training as well as study for site measurement issues, developing
measurement solutions in the area of pressure, vacuum, and fluid flow
measurements. NMC develops, maintains and disseminates the
pressure, vacuum fluid flow metrology related national measurement
standards in Singapore.
