What kind of of flowmeters are you talking about? Are they "clamp-on" or intrusive type?

At Cernavoda Nuclear Power Plant we are extensively using Controlotron Uniflow 990 Series Flowmeters. These flowmeters have an intrinsec calibration which, usually, ensure an accuracy better than 1% (enough for the majority of our applications).

However, if you want a better calibration, you have to go to a specialised facility. There is such a place in Romania, and I think that is also in Canada one (RPC - Research and Productivity Council). Try also to find more information from the manufacturer (Controlotron Corporation - they have the headquarter in New York; accessing www.controlotron.com could be a good ideea too).
