SICK-MAIHAK’s ultrasonic gauge meter, FLOWSIC 600, measures gas velocity, volumetric flow, and volumes over a large measuring range quickly, reliably, and precisely. It measures ethylene, carbon monoxide, natural gas, biogas, steam, compressed air, hydrogen and many other kinds of gas including gas mixtures.
Miniature high frequency transducers are the building blocks of the FLOWSIC 600. Their purpose is to inject the ultrasound effectively into the gas. This means the high accuracy multi-path technology is also available for very short nominal widths of DN50 (2 inches) and above. The device can use up to four measuring paths, thus ensuring scalable accuracy.
Compared with conventional measuring devices, the FLOWSIC 600 can offer the following specific benefits: bi-directional operation, automatic self-diagnosis functions, and measurements without pressure loss. The device is extremely compact, robust, and requires very little maintenance. FLOWSIC 600 also consumes very little energy. This means it can even be used in very remote locations under extreme conditions, for example, in high pressure pipelines used in the natural gas industry. In this application, the device can also be operated with a solar panel.
