Faure Herman meets the highest requirements in terms of weight reduction.

Accuracy and repeatability

Accuracy and repeatability

Typical accuracy is 0.15% with repeatability of < 0.04%.

Premium Master Meter accuracy is +/-0.1% with repeatability< 0.02%.

Performing factory calibration on hydrocarbons of same viscosity as your fluid characteristics ensures your meter performs in the field the same as it did in the calibration lab.  This ensures accurate measurement of your revenues.

Custom calibrate / Tailor made calibration

Custom calibrate / Tailor made calibration

Faure Herman provides a unique calibration service to its customers, by using the same fluid characteristics as the customer’s own fluid.

For helical turbines, Faure Herman brings an extra service by fine tuning of the rotor shape, in order to get unmatched accuracy and repeatability. These « retouche » are hand made in between two calibration runs, by specialized operators, internally trained to reproduce Faure Herman 100 year know-how.

This is what makes the difference between a good meter and a master meter.

Downsizing

Downsizing

You originally needed a maximum flow rate of 1,260 b.hr, but now, several years later, oil output has dropped below 50% of original flow…

You can go from our original 4’’ Heliflu TZN STD 100-200 to the downsized DS 100-110 model, in order to achieve a maximum flow rate of 690 bph, without changing your meter run.

This can be integrated into an existing meter skid, extending duty life without having to change existing piping.

Flexibility

Flexibility

Faure Herman meters are available in several flow ranges within a single line size, offering you the possibility of upsizing or downsizing based upon the lifecycle of your production.

This may be achieved by just changing the cartridge or the meter body, not the entire meter run. This provides significant cost savings on the metering unit.

Sturdiness

Sturdiness

Our rotors are one piece elements, carved directly from a bloc of the appropriate metal for your application. The helical rotor, rounded front edge and light weight materials improve stability and linearity even in high viscosity fluids – while reducing bearing wear.

Combined with tungsten carbide bearings, we design our turbines for high performance, over a very long period of time, with minimum need for repair or maintenance.

Replaceable cartridge

Replaceable cartridge

Our TZN range of removable cartridges allow you to carry on production using a spare cartridge for replacement while the original one is sent back for repair or recalibration.

This helps you reduce downtime and save money, while providing full autonomy for your operations.

If your process conditions change, this innovative design also allows you to adapt to the new fluid and flow range, by simply changing the cartridge, without changing your existing footprint / infrastructure.
