Abstract

•The distance between the ECT sensors is an optimum calculated distance.•An ECT sensor calibration was performed with air (low) and crude oil at 80°C (high).•Due to thermal shrinkage, the gas voids formed in a statically cooled waxy crude oil.•Velocity of the crude oil was calculated at 75°C during the standardization of flow loop.•Location & volume of gas voids rely strongly on cooling and flow rates in the pipe.
