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

SICK Metering Systems steps on the gas


Ultrasonic technology is particularly attractive for custody transfer flow measurements when it comes to invoicing for gas levels, and also for measuring flare gas. With its individual components and entire system solutions for use in measuring stations across the oil and gas industry, SICK’s measuring technology is really convincing as the best solution. In fact, advanced system projects are what SICK Metering Systems does best. The joint venture carried out one of these projects successfully in partnership with German SICK Vertriebs-GmbH at a major European gas supplier’s gas terminal in East Frisia, Germany.

FLOWSIC600: Ultrasonic gas flow meter for natural gas and process gases


Every day natural gas flows in great quantities through pipelines or into storage facilities. Precise gas quantity measurement is of the utmost importance, as even very small measurement errors could result in substantial economic loss. Challenging ambient measurement conditions like moisture, ice, cold, heat and desert sand place great demands on the instruments in the field. This is why a gas flow meter is needed that is both accurate and reliable. The FLOWSIC600 gas flow meter from SICK achieves both of these goals. It is ideal for both natural gas custody transfer and the highly precise measurement of process gases in the chemical industry. Continue reading
