DAMASCENO, Magalí Araújo et al. Influence of the temperature, pressure and viscosity on the oil measurement with turbine type measurers. Braz. arch. biol. technol. [online]. 2006, vol.49, n.spe, pp. 65-72. ISSN 1516-8913. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-89132006000200011.
The flow measurement of liquids and gases is a necessity in many industrial applications. There is a great amount of measurers for such purpose, as, for example, the coriolis, positive displacement and type turbine measurers. A measurer sufficiently used for the oil flow measurement is the turbine type, because it uses the proper extracted energy of the measured flow for its functioning, moreover is also used as standard for the calibration of other measurers. For this reason, it is important to study the parameters that influence the measurement process for turbine measurers. In Brazil, to measure the volume of oil, regardless the type of measurer, it is necessary to observe "Portaria Conjunta Nº. 1", of June 19, 2000, that approved the Technical Regulation of Measurement of Oil and Natural Gas, establishing the minimum conditions and requirements for the systems of oil and natural gas measurement, in order to get a measurement standard. As such, the present work has the objective of determining parameters that influence in the measurement of oil volumes using turbine measurers.
