Ultrasonic gas meter FLOWSIC600 – SICK

Every day natural gas flows in great quantities through pipelines or into storage facilities, thus changing owners. Precise gas quantity measurement is of the utmost importance, as even very small measurement errors could result in substantial economic loss. In addition, challenging ambient measurement conditions often play a decisive role. Moisture, ice, cold, heat and desert sand place great demands on the instruments in the field. This is why a gas flow meter is needed that is both accurate and reliable.

The FLOWSIC600 gas flow meter from SICK achieves both of these goals. It is ideal for both natural gas and hydrogen custody transfer and the highly precise measurement of process gases in the chemical industry.

The FLOWSIC600 measurement device is an ultrasonic gas flow meter and sets the standard in its market segment for custody transfer of natural gas as well as steam flow measurement. The visually technical design demonstrates that it is geared to the tough industry conditions. The compact design with integrated cable routing means that the measuring system is rugged, insensitive to interference, low-maintenance, and has long-term stability. The FLOWSIC600 features extensive diagnostics options to allow detection of malfunctions even before the measurement is affected. Versions with 2, 4, 4 + 1, or 4 + 4 measuring paths enable a variety of process applications, including custody transfer measurements.
