A superior option to traditional BS&W technologies, the patented KAM® LRW™ Low Range Watercut meter offers the high accuracy and repeatability of microwave measurement in a package specifically designed for custody transfer and other low range applications.
Unique to the LRW™, AnyDensity™ technology allows the instrument to compensate for any change in density across the entire API gravity range.* This is paramount in situations where a single truck or rail unloading site could see swings in API gravity from the 20’s to the 60’s.
The patented and proven microwave technology used in the LRW™ provides industry-leading accuracy – as low as ±0.03% on 0-3% models. And, high quality components made and assembled entirely in the USA provide reliable and consistent performance for long-term use. Plus, the unit can easily be calibrated in line.
With insertable and spool/flow through models, the LRW™ also offers installation flexibility that no other unit can match. Spools can be custom fabricated for lines 1-3” and lengths 21” and above. Spools also incorporate static mixing elements to ensure a homogeneous flow and manual draw-off valves key for calibration and verification. And, insertable models can be installed on a T on any line 2” and above.
