ADVANCED LIQUID MEASUREMENT (2.5 Days)
I. Volume vs. Mass Systems - Fundamental elements controlling overall accuracy from the perspective of imbalance inquiries - Understanding relationships controlling system performance
II. Volume Systems - Influences and faults in temperature and pressure measurements and impact on system balance - Understanding volume correction factors
III. Mass Systems - Volume and density in inferred mass systems - Mass and density in direct mass systems - Volume vs. mass proving - Density correlation proving - Limitations of 11.2.4 and GPA TP-27
IV. Sampling Systems - Role of sampling in volume systems - Role of sampling in mass system - Discerning the source of gravity error (densitometry vs. analysis)
V. Case Studies A. Volume Systems - An examination of imbalances in fixed gravity systems - Examination of a case of gathering system losses - Examination of a case of financial loss absent measurement error B. Mass Systems - Investigative techniques - Case study of a system that gained but lost VI. Student Exercise Students are presented a factual case of measurement imbalance, complete with supporting data, and are challenged to produce an investigative analysis and a systematic recommendation to resolve the imbalance and then to present their findings.
