Simplifying uncertainty, demonstrating compliance

With full traceability and a 95% confidence level on all calculations, UNCERTAINTYPLUS removes the uncertainty from your uncertainty assessment.

Situation: Demonstrating the uncertainty of a measurement system is a contractual and regulatory requirement.

Not maintaining an uncertainty budget can result in exposure to conditions such as measurement error bias, and without a prior and agreed knowledge of the estimated uncertainty, a meaningful comparison between target and actual performance cannot be achieved – resulting in dispute.

Measurement uncertainty should therefore be considered throughout the entire life of a flow measurement system – from system design and engineering prior to installation, and whilst in operation.

However, there are multiple systems, designs and configurations which can be used to measure oil and gas; each with varying impacts on measurement uncertainty.

Solution: With full traceability and a 95% confidence level on all calculations, UNCERTAINTYPLUS removes the uncertainty from your uncertainty assessment.

Containing a series of uncertainty modules, UNCERTAINTYPLUS enables designers, flow measurement engineers and operators to determine the estimated uncertainty of a flow measurement system for a given set of operating conditions.

Furthermore, it will validate and prove the actual uncertainty performance aligned to the required standards.

Reduce the risk of mismeasurement

UNCERTAINTYPLUS helps you identify and prevent costly errors, whilst supporting uncertainty-based calibration optimisation to help reduce unnecessary costs.

Situation: Ensuring the accuracy of your flow measurement instrumentation is fundamental for correct reporting.

Many operators adopt a time-based approach to instrument calibration. However, this costly practice – in terms of both time and money – can prove unnecessary and leave you exposed.

If the instrument sent for calibration has no deviation in its performance between intervals, sending it to be calibrated is ineffective and inefficient. But if the instrument sent for calibration displays drift or requires adjustment, different concerns arise: How long has the instrument been misreading? What are the financial implications? And what are the contractual or regulatory risks resulting from this period of mismeasurement?

Solution: UNCERTAINTYPLUS enables designers, flow measurement engineers and operators to determine the estimated uncertainty of a flow measurement system for a given set of operating conditions.

Furthermore, it will validate and prove the actual uncertainty performance aligned to the required standards.

Supporting decision-making certainty

To enhance decision-making processes, UNCERTAINTYPLUS facilitates ‘what-if’ scenarios to model the impact of changing parameters on your uncertainty.

Situation: Simply understanding your uncertainty is often not enough to support effective decision-making.

With high costs of calibration, the need for accuracy and the management of risk exposure all influencing decision-making, there is a requirement to pre-empt the impact of your actions through effective uncertainty modelling.

Solution: To enhance decision-making processes, UNCERTAINTYPLUS facilitates ‘what-if’ scenarios to model the impact of changing equipment conditions, process conditions or other parameters on your uncertainty.

And with a 95% confidence level on all calculations, you can be certain in your uncertainty modelling.
