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.

Associated petroleum gas measuring in Russia

Putting an end to waste

With the production of oil, the Russian government has recognized the potential to enhance its environmental protection credentials and improve energy efficiency. This also includes making good use of the associated petroleum gas (APG) that is a by-product of oil production. The complex measurement of the APG flow rate which is also required from a legal perspective is a task that the SICK FLOWSIC100 Flare is able to undertake, and under the most challenging weather and gas conditions.

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

FLOWSIC600

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
