Sierra has a complete line of fuel flow measurement instrumentation. Our ultrasonic and vortex flow meters are an ideal choice for accurate filling, transport and usage fuel flow applications found in general industry. Through our Automotive Test Division, we also manufacture a line of ultra-high accuracy vehicle consumption measurement system called FuelTrak.
Accurate liquid flow sensor measurement can reduce water bills, determine leakage rates, and increase system efficiency. Solve accurate water and industrial liquid flow measurement requirements with clamp-on or insertion ultrasonic flow liquid flow meters featuring precision sensing elements or our complete line of multivariable mass vortex meters.
Hydro power contributes to supplying approximately 3,5 per cent of electric energy generated worldwide. Its share in power generation from renewable resources lies at 18 per cent and will continue to grow as resources of fossil fuels are depleted. Hydro electric performance depends essentially on the usable altitude difference between upper and lower reservoir, and hence the resulting water flow. In order to use the “fuel” water in an optimal way, the flow velocity has to be monitored without any...
In recent years acoustic flow measurement and flow metering has established itself as the standard method for measurement in many hydrological stations but is also used as the basis for various applications, for example for flood protection and flood forecasting. Ultrasonic flow meters are also used in hydro-engineering constructions. With this almost contact free technology data can be recorded continuously and it provides 24/7 monitoring. Such flow monitoring is particularly important in waterways used for...
Although there is enough water on earth, its uneven distribution, the rising population and our carelessness drinking water starts to get short. In the future more and more pipelines for drinking water will be built all over the globe. In order to operate huge and complex pipe networks efficiently, water flow measurement and flow monitoring will become necessary. The increasing efficiency of ultrasonic flow meters will make such calculations more and more effective.
Assure accurate and repeatable gas, liquid and steam measurement at your facility. Our volumetric vortex flow meters, multivariable mass vortex flow meters, ultrasonic flow meters and thermal mass flow meters are used for precision measurement of reactants, off-gases, and numerous other fluid flows in the refining industry.
Assure accurate and repeatable gas, liquid and steam measurement throughout the oil patch, from monitoring injection at the wellhead and measuring natural gas for heaters and boilers to measuring the various process gases at the refinery or flared in the field. Our volumetric vortex flow meters, multivariable mass vortex flow meters, ultrasonic flow meters and thermal mass flow meters are used for precision measurement in the oil and gas industry.

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.
Drinking water is not the only area requiring flow monitoring. The disposal and cleaning of waste water also requires flow meters. Waste water used to be dumped directly into the soil or an open channel. As awareness has increased, most discharges are now treated to assure long term sustainability. Modern water treatment plants are highly complex systems that require the use of flow sensors to monitor flow velocity in open channels for waste water discharge. Likewise facilities for waste water collection and...
