EMCO Wet Gas Meter Type WG-V


The EMCO wet gas meter is used to measure the flow rate in natural gasses with a certain level of liquid present. Based on the classical venturi tube according to ISO 5167-4 with single pressure tappings. A third tapping may be applied for liquid flow rate determination using the pressure loss ratio method. The system consists of a classical venturi tube in a metering section. The wet gas meter is designed to perform reliable measurements in applications such as well testing, hydrocarbon metering and monitoring of critical factors such as water breakthrough.

Technical Data

1 % gas flow, 10% liquid flow


The system consists of a classical venturi tube in a metering section. Differential pressure transmitter(s), static pressure transmitter or multivariable transmitters, a thermowell and a temperature transmitter an instrument cabinet, a wet gas flow computer and an over reading correction algorithm and if required for liquid flow determination tracer dilution system.


The metering section shall be mounted in a horizontal pipe run with pressure tappings pointing up wards. Length of in- and outlet pipe are not critical. An inlet length of 5 times inner pipe diameter and an outlet length of 2 times is sufficient. Impulse lines from transmitters to meter tube shall be sloped.

Wet gas metering systems require period check of fluid composition to ensure reliable flow rate measurement. The span of time between each check depends on required accuracy and how quickly the composition of the flow rate change. EMCO Controls can provide the initial start-up of the system as well as periodic flow check on site.
