Intelligent measurement technology at every step of the process

Measurements for added quality


A consistently high level of quality among parts and components can only be guaranteed if you regularly check results with measurements. These thorough checks are carried out using a wide array of methods, for example outside of the process by removing sample parts and conducting a mechanical check or by using measurement tools that are integrated directly into the production process. This is precisely the area where optical measuring sensors can show off their strengths. Continue reading

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.
