TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory launches Advanced Multiphase Facility

14 October 2019

TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory, the flow measurement R&D specialist, has launched its Advanced Multiphase Facility (AMF), which will help oil and gas operators to ensure that production remains economically viable.

The AMF’s test range (of operating pressures, temperatures, flowrates and metrology) is said to be beyond the capability of any other laboratory in the world. Operating at pressures up to 140 bar, the AMF doubles previous test facility capabilities. With a working envelope at least 20 times larger than any multiphase or wet gas facility in the world, the AMF also has the highest flow rate in the world (for both gas and liquid) within one multiphase facility.
Thee AMF contains a full production scale separator with an operating weight of 270 tonnes. It also offers an integrated subsea choke, as well as be capable of testing the complete range of flow meters. 2D, three-phase, X-ray tomography and sensors deliver high definition images of complex flows to expand industry’s understanding of fluid behaviours and their impact on measurement.
