High-pressure calibration of flow meters
High-pressure calibration ensures a correctly measured and settled flow. A flow meter calibrated by our experts in Vejen, Denmark, holds minimal calibration uncertainty. You can trust the result.
World's largest closed loop for high-pressure calibration of flow meters
- Accredited to calibrate customer meter lines under operation conditions equivalent to on-site conditions at a pressure range between atmospheric pressure and up to 65 bar g – with maximum environmental caution.
- Can calibrate meter systems with two meters in series, which has been in high demand from end-users in the upstream and downstream sectors for years.
What can the MEGA loop do for my business?
If you are a meter manufacturer, an energy transmission or distribution company, or an EPC contractor on custody transfer projects, you can benefit from high-pressure calibration in numerous ways. Our team is ready to answer your questions and advise you on the right calibration path for your needs.
Skilled calibration staff at your service at all times
Our staff has wide-ranging expertise, deep knowledge of high-pressure calibration and many years of experience. We ensure high quality, work at a primary level, generate traceability, participate in the European Harmonised Natural Gas Cubic Meter (EUREGA), perform quick meter replacements irrespective of meters and meter sizes and always complete the task.
We operate 24-7, including weekends and nights if necessary, and you are welcome to oversee the calibration of your meters live in the visitor's room or via remote camera access.
If you already have an agreement about high-pressure calibration, please forward the equipment to FORCE Technology Navervej 1 DK – 6600 Vejen Denmark.
Ready for Power-to-X
Almost three times the size of the existing loop in terms of length, meter section, meter sizes and maximum flow, the MEGA loop is hydrogen-ready for the transition to Power-to-X. In time, it will have the ability to operate with up to 25% hydrogen.
Types of meters
We calibrate all types of flow meters:
- Turbine meters
- Swirl meters
- Ultrasound meters
- V-cone and M-cone meters
- Vortex meters
- Coriolis meters
- Thermal mass flow meters
- Mass flow controllers
What is metrology?
What is metrology?
Metrology is the scientific study of measurements and measuring methods. Metrology establishes a common understanding of units and is a cornerstone when dealing with goods across countries, creating security and credibility.
Where does metrology come from?
Modern metrology stems from France, where a proposal for a length standard taken from a natural source led to the decimal-based metric system in 1799. The metric system led to a set of standards for other measurements, and many countries adopted it.
What is calibration?
Calibration is a determination of a measuring instrument’s accuracy. Over time, results from a measuring instrument can become inaccurate. To be confident of the measured result's accuracy, you must calibrate and recalibrate over time.
Why is it important to calibrate measuring equipment like flowmeters?
Calibrating measuring instruments determines the measuring instrument's accuracy and gives traceability to the measuring instrument.
Traceability describes a process where a measuring result can be traced back to a national or international standard for the applied quantity.
Regular calibration of your flow meters helps ensure that you sell or receive what you have ordered or sold: that the quantities are correct.
What does FORCE Technology do as a National Metrology Institute/Designated institute?
As a Designated Institute and technical advisor to the industry and authorities regarding basic measuring techniques and legislation, we keep track of developments and ensure that our customers' demands for accredited calibration are fully met.
Why is metrology critical in the green transition?
We need metrology for renewable energy sources like hydrogen. For it to become a commodity to be traded, we need to have a fixed metrology standard and reference to which traded hydrogen can be traced and measured. Until this is in place, buyers and sellers cannot be sure that the amount of hydrogen they buy or sell is accurate. FORCE Technology is involved in international projects to determine metrology for hydrogen.
