The oil and gas major has been using turbine flow meters for several years for water injection application. However, they were looking for a suitable alternate option because of the problems associated with turbine flow meters. Some of these were unreliable flow measurements due to dirty water with sand residue, frequent failure of the internals of the turbine flow meter due to high process pressure, and no bypass line to remove the meter for periodic maintenance.
