Thermal gas mass flowmeter has many advantages, such as large range ratio, high precision, and reliability. It can be widely used in the measurement of industrial natural gas, household gas, and oxygen in medical treatment. It has a broad application prospect in industrial and civil fields. At present, the maximum flow rate of low-pressure natural gas practical flow measurement standard device is usually only 40 m3·h−1, which is unable to test the low-pressure high-flow gas mass flowmeter, bringing a lot of inconvenience to the production. In this paper, the thermal gas mass flowmeter is modified by using the split flow component, and the flow field characteristics of the split flow component and the whole meter are compared and verified by numerical simulation. The practical flow test equipment is used to carry out the practical flow test of the split flow component, and the flow rate performance of the flowmeter is obtained by using the flow proportional coefficient obtained by calculation, thus solving the practical flow test problem of the low-pressure high-flow gas mass flowmeter.

Using high purity α-arbutin reagent as raw material, the reference material was further identified and confirmed by MS/MS, IR, UV-vis, nuclear magnetic resonance, melting point, optical rotation, etc.. The chromatographic purity of α-arbutin reference material was determined by High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) coupled with fluorescence detector (FLD). Moisture and ignition residue determination was carried out according to the guideline specified in Volume IV of the Pharmacopoeia of the People's Republic of China 2020 Edition. The residual solvents were determined according to the procedure specified in the Safety and Technical Standards for Cosmetics. The purity of α-arbutin reference material was then calculated by the mass balance method and the certified value of α-arbutin is 99.87% with an expanded uncertainty of 2.46% (k=2).

Tungsten telluride magnetoresistive material has an excellent unsaturated magnetoresistance effect, and information storage technology and magnetic sensor fabrication technology based on tungsten telluride magnetoresistive materials represent an important direction in magnetoresistive research. The magnetic and electrical properties of materials can be changed by doping methods. To explore whether tungsten telluride magnetoresistive materials can obtain excellent performance by the silver doping method, a detailed introduction of how to choose the doping method and why choose silver as the doping element is discussed. A method for mild preparation of bulk silver-doped tungsten telluride (WTe2/Ag) magnetoresistive materials was established, namely a novel self-flux sintering method. Three typical WTe2/Ag materials with different silver doping contents were prepared. The characterization and evaluation of phase, valence state, structure, and magnetoresistance performance were tested and analyzed. The results indicated the excellence of the silver doping method, the prepared WTe2/Ag not only has reliable material quality but also effectively enhances the magnetoresistance effect, making it easier to achieve the control conditions for the highest value of the magnetoresistance tested. The measured magnetoresistance is 502.3% at 5 K and 14 T, which is 50% higher than that without doping. The magnetoelectric performance is greatly improved compared with those of doped other elements, which is of positive significance for the optimal design and practical application of electromagnetic devices.

A new type of water-cut test device with offline sampling detection function for high water-cut oil wells was developed and applied in an offshore oil field. The results of the filed study on the offshore platform showed that for the high water-cut oil wells with water-cut larger than 90%, four layers of composite oil-water separation membrane should be used for water content determination, and the determination time should be within 15 min so that the percentage change of the determination result is within ±1.0% compared with the centrifugal water content data, and the error of the determination result is within ±0.2% compared with the water content data of professional institutions, and the determination result is closer to the field production data. The operation of new water-cut test device is intelligent and easy to operate. The device reduced the impact of well fluid fluctuations using sampling volume amplification, realized the rapid oil-water separation using a complex oil-water separation membrane and vacuum pump, and prevented the adhesion loss of crude oil in the process of produced fluid transfer using a detachable sampling tank, prevented the adhesion of crude oil using superhydrophobic oil coating, avoided the error of volume reading using the weighing module so that the measurement of water content was more accurate and faster. The new water-cut test device meets the field demand for more accurate, faster, and more convenient determination of water content in high water-cut wells, which is conducive to the later adjustment of oil well production fluid optimization and lateral drilling decision.

The influencing factors of the indication error of fuel dispensers mainly come from the ambient temperature, flow rate of, standard metal gauge, and vapor recovery system. In this paper, the influence of such factors on the error of indication value of fuel dispensers are analyzed through multiple groups of comparative experiments. The results showed that the verification value of standard metal gauge is lower than the actual measurement when the gasoline temperature is lower than the ambient temperature in summer. However, the verification value of standard metal gauge is higher than the actual measurement in winter. Under the same verification conditions, the fuel nozzle has a larger indication error when refueling with a large flow than with a small flow. Different structural features of standard metal gauges will cause different degrees of volatilization of oil and gas, resulting in different indication errors when other conditions are the same. Activating the vapor recovery device will reduce the actual oil output of the fuel dispenser, and the larger the gas-liquid ratio, the larger the indication error will be.
