This publication has been superseded by HM 11, 2nd ed.

This publication is a complete revision of the Institute of Petroleum's Petroleum Measurement Paper No 4 - Code of practice for the proving of gantry meters first published in January 1991. It should be read in conjunction with the other relevant Meter Proving documents published as either sections of the IP Petroleum Measurement Manual Part X Meter Proving or Hydrocarbon Management, Meter Proving Codes. This new Code of practice establishes minimum levels of accuracy for the proving and adjustment of loading gantry meters. It also gives guidance on the traceability of reference devices, and provides information on their maintenance requirements. The guidance on meter adjustment is based on industry best practice and represents the minimum level of performance acceptable for trade within the industry. This publication is essential reading for anyone installing, proving or maintaining gantry meters.
