Ultrasonic gas flow measuring devices

FLOWSIC proves its value on the test bench


Small, but a global leader all the same: Ehrler Prüftechnik Engineering GmbH (EP-E) has crafted a remarkable reputation in the field of high-precision testing and calibration systems. A preferred partner of the company is SICK – whenever possible, the company founder Alois Ehrler integrates the ultrasonic gas flow meter of the FLOWSIC product family into his flow testing equipment.  Continue reading

The FLOWSIC500 ultrasonic gas flow meter from SICK

Innovation in natural gas distribution


Being a reliable and proficient partner to the oil and gas industry, SICK has revolutionized the natural gas distribution in the last four years. Before the market launch of the FLOWSIC500 in 2012 it was mainly conventional technologies that were put to use by public utilities and large-scale industrial consumers such as rotary piston and turbine gas meters. Several thousand SICK FLOWSIC500 devices have so far been put to use around the world for natural gas measurement by users hailing from a variety of industries – with success and high customer satisfaction.

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.

Storing green power is a key milestone when it comes to the successful implementation of the energy transition. Converting it into hydrogen or synthetic natural gas is a concept that shows a great deal of promise and involves the stages of water electrolysis, methanation, and feeding the power into the natural gas grid. SICK’s involvement relates to gas analysis and the detection of gas flows and consumption rates. Continue reading

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
