The Compact Cyclone Multiphase Meters are real-time measuring systems for oil, gas, and water flowing from production wells.  They are used both onshore and offshore for fast, accurate, and reliable well testing.  Multiphase flow meters, sometimes referred to as MPFM, are used in place of traditional two phase and three phase test separators.

CCM Systems with vessel diameters from 12 to 52 inches have been delivered to cover an entire range of production from small oil wells to large gas wells.  The CCM family is engineered by Phase Dynamics to meet the specific requirements for production and test separator applications.  Since it is a separation system with real gas demisters it can handle wet gas measurements.

CCM Meter

The CCM Meter is a technologically advanced way to efficiently separate gas from liquids and then accurately measure the amount of gas, oil, and water flowing before recombining the streams to the output flange.  Efficient separation takes place through an advanced vessel design where tangential velocity typically creates a separation force in excess of 50 g's.  The separated gas then passes through demisting elements to further dry the gas before it is routed to the gas meter.  The separated liquids are then routed for liquid metering.

Phase Dynamics utilizes the highest quality components for the CCM Meter such as Fisher valves and actuators, and Micro Motion Coriolis meters.  Water-in-oil is metered with a Full Range Phase Dynamics Water-Cut Analyzer equipped with the Heuristic Salinity© routine.

The system measures total oil, water, and gas, pressure, temperature, and other parameters available on display or through the data interface.
