Accurate Mass Measurement of Natural Gas Flow, Air flow
and Other Gases
A industrial flow meter is an instrument used to measure linear,
nonlinear, mass or volumetric flow rate of a liquid or a gas.
The precise measurement of the actual flow rate provides the
foundation for various analyses, documentations and decisions in
connection with compressed air systems. Possible overloading (e.g.
excessive air velocities) or malfunctions can be quickly and
reliably detected and this permits economically optimized
dimensioning of the plant components. Moreover, the exact
allocation of consumption percentages to the different stages of
production is of great value for making fact-based business
And not least, the flow rate measurement will indicate the loss
of compressed air due to leakage. An important economic factor
considering that every third compressor only runs to compensate for
the loss of air!
