Bi-directional fiscal billing in storage facilities

Many entities up and down the value chain use underground storage facilities to maintain excess inventories in order to meet peak, frequently seasonal, demand cycles, or simply to store product awaiting favorable market conditions. Gas is stored in old salt caverns or by reinjection into exhausted wells. Due to the bidirectional nature of storage (injections and withdrawals), ultrasonic gas flow meters, which are inherently bi-directional and non-mechanical, are a perfect solution. In particular, SICK uses application- specific path layouts, transducer designs, and algorithms to meet this demanding application.
