The effects between two slotted plate flow meter under single, two, three components flow condition
studied under different flow conditions and different configurations. In accordance with
previous work, the effects of the distance between the slotted plate were identified as an
area requring further investigation. The preset 5D distance is expanded to the 10D distance.
The flow coefficient KY, the pressure drop, and the uncertainty analysis is conducted.
There were definite deference in the results between the 5D distance and the 10D distance
in many aspects. As a base line, the flow coefficient KY showed 0.8% ~ 2% difference
between the 5D and the 10D distance case. Depending upon the upstream flow conditions,
the reproducibility of the slotted flow meter was affected. The pressure drop increased as
the upstream Reynolds number increased. The result from the analysis of the water cut
meter showed that there are definite relationships between the parameteres of the water cut
meter and the parameters of the flow.
