Coriolis mass flow inaccurate reading

Hi Gets

When using Coriolis mass flow meters to measure liquids flow oil with entrained GAS from the well productions , the meter reports inaccurate readings. Entrained Gas gives inaccurate reading comparing to metering system, as the entrained maybe absorbs some of the energy. The energy is limited by intrinsic safety requirements and therefore cannot be increased.

Any advise are welcome

How much error is there?

I am willing to bet there is a K factor setting that isn’t correct. I would call my vendor and tell them what issues I am having. Probably should pull (at minimum) the serial number which in our case will allow the vendor to pull up the configuration settings. They may be able to provide you a solution over the phone.
