Mass flow meters are deployed for metering of heavy hydrocarbon such as bunker fuels. There are many challenges in the measurement of mass flow influenced by high viscosity and multiphase fluids. A primary liquid flow standard has been developed and is described in this paper. This standard is capable to perform water and high viscous fluid calibration from 0.6 to 80 Mt/h using gravimetric method, with two phase flow condition in the range of 0 to 30% gas-liquid volume ratio and measurement uncertainties range of 0.05 % to 0.2 %.
