TUV SUD Improves Thermal Control

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 12/18/2015, Location: Europe

Temperature control and stability is very important for metrology testing, calibration and research work, therefore reliable and efficient process cooling is required to remove the excess energy input from pumps operating at high pressure.

To meet this cooling demand in the national standard flow measurement facilities, two new high-efficiency air-cooled chiller units have recently been installed. These provide 1MW of process coolant to the facility and, along with the heating circuits, ensure stable thermal control of all operations within the plant. Stability of test temperature is critical to the measurement uncertainty calculations for the overall test loop performance, traceable to +/- 0.25oC across all the facilities.

This upgrade will provide security of capacity for existing and future operations, including the investment in a high-pressure multiphase facility.

As part of this upgrade, NEL is collaborating with a team of post-graduate engineering students from Strathclyde University. The collaboration will involve a programme of measurement to supplement the tests already carried out. This, combined with modelling of the system, will ensure the most efficient design of local control is achieved.
