VPS launches 'Quick Screening' service for MFM bunker deliveries in Singapore

03 May 2017 09:57 GMT

Intention is to provide a quick 'pass/fail' preliminary guide on the performance of mass flow meters.



Veritas Petroleum Services (VPS) has launched its new 'Quick Screening' service for the mass flow meter (MFM) delivery of bunkers in Singapore.

The intention of the service is to provide a quick 'pass/fail' preliminary guide on the performance of the mass flow meter - based on the meter profile and the field documents obtained by the VPS surveyor and assessed by the in-house VPS flow technologist.

This 'pass/fail' rating is to form part of the bunker quantity survey report, so that the information can be received in a timely manner.

In a statement, VPS explained: "Mass flow meter operation is not 'plug & play', and dispute resolution will be complex if a set of procedures is not available to do a preliminary round of checks based on existing parameters. This is also the intention of the new VPS Quick Screening service, where we will do a meter profile evaluation of mass flow, air index, temperature, density, drive gain, damping etc."

"Field documents checks on calibration certificate, zero verification report etc. will also form part of this quick screening assessment," VPS added.

Should the Quick Screening evaluation result in a 'fail' rating, then a more comprehensive investigation of the mass flow meter can be initiated where required, VPS said.
