Natural Gas – ST51 thermal flow meter

Many industries use significant quantities of natural gas which represents a large part of their operating costs. In the food industry it is used to fuel the ovens for drying and baking, whereas in the automotive sector it is used for drying newly painted panels. Manufacturers need a method of checking their actual usage against the annual bills from their gas suppliers.

Thermal flow meters have become the industry standard for Natural Gas flow measurement due to ease of installation, low cost & the fact that, unlike Turbine flow meters or Orifice plates they do not require periodic re-calibration & can monitor very low flows & low operating pressures. Furthermore they require a single 1” BSP tapping  can be Installed “live”, through a ball valve.
