# DAMPER LOSS

 The reduction in rate of flow or of pressure of gas across a damper.

## Related Terms

### GAS-LIQUID-RATIO (GLR)

The gas volume flow rate, relative to the total liquid volume flow rate (oil and water), all volumes converted to volumes at standard pressure and temperature.

### SYSTEMS CURVE

A graphic presentation of the pressure vs. volume flow rate characteristics of a particular system.

### GAS-OIL-RATIO (GOR)

The gas volume flow rate, relative to the oil volume flow rate, both converted to volumes at standard pressure and temperature.

### PNEUMATICS

Engineering science pertaining to gaseous pressure and flow.

### COMPRESSIBLE FLUID FLOW

Gas flow when the pressure drop due to the flow of a gas through a system is large enough, compared with the inlet pressure, to cause a 10% or greater decrease in gas density.

### JOULE'S LAW

1. The law that when electricity flows through a substance, the rate of evolution of heat in watts equals the resistance of the substance in ohms times the square of the current in amperes. 2. The law that at constant temperature the internal energy of a gas tends to a finite limit, independent of volume, as the pressure tends to zero.

### WATER CUT (WC)

The water volume flow rate, relative to the total liquid volume flow rate (oil and water), both converted to volumes at standard pressure and temperature. The WC is normally expressed as a percentage.

### ANEROID FLOWMETER

A mechanism to measure fluid flow rate by pressure of the fluid against a bellows counterbalanced by a calibrated spring.

### GAS VOLUME FRACTION (GVF)

The gas volume flow rate, relative to the multiphase volume flow rate, at the pressure and temperature prevailing in that section. The GVF is normally expressed as a percentage.

### ELBOWMETER

Pipe elbow used as a liquids flowmeter; flow rate is measured by determining the differential pressure developed between the inner and outer radii of the bend by means of two pressure taps located midway on the bend.
