Elster and Instromet have contributed a number of technical innovations and patents to the field of gas measuring and regulation.
The Haas patent for diaphragm gas meters and the development of the first horizontal turbine gas meter are milestones in the history of gas development technology led by Elster. The development of encoder technology, station computers and also high-pressure regulators are all high-profile achievements within the new generation of products. Instromet pioneered the use of ultrasonic gas flow measurement; over two decades of experience in the field has shaped the current series of ultrasonic gas flow meters.

With the introduction of the Digital Absolute Travel Time Method in the early 1980's, the first accurate and reliable ultrasonic river flow measuring system was born. Energy metering and analysers are sophisticated developments, which were designed by Instromet in recent years. The introduction of IRM rotary piston gas meters and the SM-RI turbine gas meters are milestones, which have significantly improved the quality of gas measurement.

American Meter and Kromschroeder have set standards in both North America and Europe in the field of low-pressure gas measurement. Their developments stand for long-term performance and reliability as well as for innovative features, such as temperature correction and pulse readiness. New generation products, such as CHEKKER and Absolute-Encoder, show features that go beyond metering. They represent the beginning of process optimization for meter-reading and billing.

In the industries of gas measuring, safety and regulation, Elster-lnstromet* is well positioned to meet and exceed the requirements and ever growing needs of gas distribution and gas transmission companies. We provide customized solutions, including a comprehensive range of off-the-shelf high-end products. Our extensive global sales and service network guarantees our ability to react directly to the specific needs of various markets worldwide. We are very proud of our achievements so far; but we are also prepared to face the challenges of the future.

Highly sophisticated technical facilities and production technologies v/ith our own high-pressure test rigs enable us to meet the highest standards in product quality and product performance. Increasing demands for comprehensive solutions have caused us to take the necessary step towards developing our own supervisory (ISS) and data management (LIS) software. This allows us to deliver complete full service and we can also create a solution to your individual requirements. New measuring principles and methods are developed through collaboration with universities and technical colleges. In retrospect, these technology transfers have generally proved to be beneficial for all parties concerned. The basis for successful progress in development is to maintain a close relationship with you and our suppliers.

An important criterion for the excellent quality of our services is our ability to satisfy and exceed your requirements. Of course, this can only be achieved by maintaining the high quality of our products. The purchase of raw materials, semimanufactured goods and their assembly in production facilities are subject to thorough selection and quality control processes to ensure safety and the perfect condition of the goods.

For our metering and regulating products, we use materials of superior quality, which are delivered together with a materials test certificate by our personally selected subcontractors' suppliers. Fast communications and decision-making enable us to react promptly and flexibly. Our products are manufactured in strict accordance with national and international regulations and standards.
Some of these standards form the basis on which we have set up even more sophisticated internal testing procedures. In every section of our company, respon- sibilify, training and the distribution ct detailed information to all staff members are vital in guaranteeing and improving the quality and the output of our work in the long term. Emphasis is placed on seminars and regular training courses for our employees who are responsible for quality assurance and the improvement of our products.

Our quality assurance manual according to DIN ISO 9001 is mandatory for all sections of our company. The durability and reliability of our products confirm that this concept is indeed right. However, quality improvements and quality assurance are ongoing processes to which we will continue to devote our attention and energy in the future.
