Sierra thermal flowmeters provide precise flow measurement solutions for a variety of industrial and energy-related applications such as flare gas measurement, cogeneration, biogas measurement, district energy applications, clean coal technology and many more.
Sierra designs and manufactures a wide range of today’s most advanced analog and digital gas flowmeters and controllers, including a high-pressure gas flowmeter. For gas mixing and blending applications, accuracy and precision control and measurement are always a central requirement. Sierra’s precise flow meters and controls provide end-users with high performance in gas mixing and blending applications like creating artificial atmospheres, gas mixing in manufacturing, inerting and gas chromatography.
For over 40 years, Sierra has designed and manufactured a wide range of today’s most advanced digital gas flowmeters and controllers for reasearchers and systems integrators, including a high-flow, high-pressure gas flowmeter with a complete suite of digital protocols for network integration.
Greyline AVFM Area-Velocity Flow Meters are installed thoughout the country by Teletronic Denmark to monitor municipal sewage and stormwater. Application photos and descriptions illustrate flow monitoring in manholes and open channels.
The Township of South Glengarry installs a new Greyline AVFM 5.0 Area-Velocity Flow Meter to measure continuous discharge from their municipal sewage lagoon. The sealed ultrasonic sensor is mounted in a horizontal 12` PVC pipe. The AVFM replaced a magnetic flowmeter that was unable to measure seasonal low flow rates.
Thermal mass flowmeters and controllers are ideal for Argon application where precision is key. Sierra specializes in accurate mass flow measurement and/or control of Argon gas. Popular applications range from general industrial process control, inerting and steel purification processes to name a few.
Thermal mass flowmeters are ideal for Carbon Dioxide metering and mass flow control. Sierra specializes in accurate mass flow measurement and/or control of CO2 gas. Applications range from general industrial process control across numerous industries to Green House Gas monitoring requirements and general research.
Spire Metering offers several solutions for leakage detection. The flowmeters are used to monitor cooling water in machining process. They are used also in liquid process control and leakage detection applications.
Wax and solids build-up were plugging off pipes and in-line flowmeters at this oil battery site in Alberta. Read how Petrobakken Energy solved the problem by switching to Greyline DFM 5.0 Doppler Flow Meters with non-contacting ultrasonic sensors.
An Ontario municipality deploys Portable flowmeters to solve flow rate discrepancies between sewage pump station effluent and lagoon influent flowmeters. Faced with suspension of construction permits due to flow rate uncertainty, the Township of North Glengarry called on Greyline Instruments to help troubleshoot two permanently installed flow meters.
Cutting efficiency is greatly affected by variability in soil density, hardness, lithology, and sediment particle size distribution. All of these factors create slurry of variable makeup and density. If the dredge pump works at a constant speed, the slurry will have a variable flow velocity, which is undesirable and potentially dangerous. If the velocity is too low, there is a risk of sandouts in the pipeline. If the velocity is too high, the pump will wear and be inefficient. Traditional velocity flowmeters with...
Soil density, hardness, lithology, and sediment particle size distribution can create slurry of variable makeup and density. At a constant pump speed, the slurry will have a variable flow velocity, which is undesirable and potentially dangerous. If the velocity is too low, there is a risk of sand outs in the pipeline. If the velocity is too high, the pump will wear and be inefficient. Traditional velocity flow meters with wetted parts are prone to wear, causing measurement inaccuracies, and require frequent,...
