Are there any restrictions to use one temperature measurement and one pressure measurement to flow compensation of few streams? How much streams flow can be compensated by this way?


I see one risk - in case of failure this measurements. But could it be solved by set system to take the last known correct value?

If a more accurate flow measurement is desired, might I suggest to use a flow meter that can measure the flow accurately without need temperature or pressure compensation?

Provide more information about the fluid and temperature /pressure set points if you want a meaningful answer.
