Ultrasonic gas flow meter

Continuous measuring even in the event of mains voltage failure with PowerIn Technology™

Now there is no need to go without ultrasonic precision and fall back on other mechanical measurement techniques in the event of a mains voltage failure. The back-up batteries in the FLOWSIC-X gas flow meters supply energy in this case. Autonomous operation has been proven with the FLOWSIC500 and is now integrated in the FLOWSIC600-XT: With PowerIn TechnologyTM  Continue reading

Using CO2 “green” products

Cutting emissions: there is another way

The energy revolution has also brought to light the fact that carbon dioxide is only a bad thing when it is released into the air. If, however, CO2 is captured and stored, it could make a significant contribution to reducing CO2 and generating “green” products. Carbon dioxide is the key ingredient in the power-to-gas concept, for example. This technology involves storing renewable energy in the form of synthetic methane gas to provide a combined solution that both reduces CO2 and allows problematic green power surpluses to be stored. What’s more, CO2 forms part of the process for producing plastics which are free of petroleum. Continue reading


iF Product Design Award for FLOWSIC500

In early 2014 the international iF jury judged a total of 4,615 products, communication and packaging designs that had been submitted as entries for the renowned iF design award competition from 55 countries. Forty-nine design experts assessed the entries on the basis of various criteria, such as degree of innovation, material, and functionality. The ultrasonic flowmeter FLOWSIC500 from SICK impressed the jury with its exceptional design quality and was awarded with the iF product design award 2014. Continue reading
