The work presents selected methods of signal analysis used in the processing of data obtained from radiometric probes. The used data came from an exemplary study of a two-phase liquid-gas flow at the laboratory installation. In such rigs many possible transport types may be observed, i.e. slug, plug and bubble flow, and each of them gives different signal-to-noise ratio of recorded data. Therefore, available radiometric methods of gas phase velocity measurements give diverse accuracies. Authors consider several improvements of data acquisition and processing which increase possibility of the flow type recognition and higher accuracy of the gas phase velocity estimation.
