ASTM WK26593

    New Practice for Gas Phase Flare Gas Flow Metering

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D03.12 | Committee D03 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This practice covers procedures for the determination of flare gas flow by various methodologies including: Optical Flow Meter Optical Flow Sensor Ultrasonic Flow Meter

    Flow meters and sensors are used to provide accurate and reliable methods to measure the flow of flare gases on a continuous basis. Flow measurements are frequently used for regulatory or contract compliance custody transfer and process control. Flow measurment will be a critical component of compliance with US Federal flaring operation regulations under development at the US EPA.


    Gaseous fuel, fuel type gases, scintillation measurement, gas transit time

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
