FLOW LOOP SYSTEMS

FLOW LOOP SYSTEMS

OVERVIEW

Cortest Flow Loop Systems are used to simulate flow conditions inside a pipeline. A wide range of applications can be simulated, such as: Single Phase Liquid Flow, Single Phase Gas Flow, Multiphase (Liquid/Gas) Flow, Laminar Flow, and Various Hydrodynamic Conditions including Corrosion Flow, Slug Flow, Annular Flow, and Stratified Flow. The flow loops are used to measure the effectiveness of corrosion inhibitors and drag reducers in various environments and flow regimes. Customers can specify operating parameters such as flow rate, temperature, pressure, single or multiphase, piping diameter, and a selection of corrosion probes and sensors to customize the system for their specific requirements.
