Paper Title:
Experiment Research on Air Flow Rate Measurement Using Tracer Gas Method
  Abstract

Experiment research on the air flow rate measurement using tracer gas method in a 300mm internal diameter and 90° elbow duct are presented, which CO and air are selected as tracer gas and gas stream. Results show that the relative errors between the flow rate measured by tracer gas method and turbine flowmeter are varied in the range of -2.15%~1.69% when the injection point is upstream of the elbow on 7D~13D (D is the internal diameter of the duct), and the sampling point is downstream of the elbow on 10D~14D. The further distances of the injection point and sampling point are apart, the less relative errors of the gas flow rate measured by tracer gas method and turbine flowmeter are made. The injection flow rate of tracer gas should be matched with the gas flow rate in the duct. It is a simple and effective method that gas flowmeter online calibration with tracer gas method on the large diameter industrial gas pipeline transportation.
