Abstract : This invention relates to a method and apparatus for automatic measurement of gas flow rate and gas volume from a test cell. By this method, low rates of gas production may be measured, and means are provided to limit flow rates to maximum and minimum values measurable in a mass flowmeter. Further, data logging and computational means are shown which are used for correction and manipulation of mass flow rate data obtained.
