Overview

Natural gas distribution measurement with support for standardization

The latest technology for the ultimate in measurement accuracy: The FLOWSIC500 ultrasonic compact gas meter from SICK enables extremely accurate natural gas distribution measurement. Thanks to its lack of mechanical moving parts, the FLOWSIC500 is rugged, reliable, and maintenance-free – allowing for a significant reduction in operating costs. It is overload-proof, accurate and is monitored by an intelligent diagnostics system. Recalibration is extremely straightforward, as it is simply a matter of exchanging the cartridge. The FLOWSIC500 can easily be integrated into existing measuring stations. It operates either in a self-sufficient energy configuration or in failsafe network operation with battery back-up. It complies with all pertinent standards and directives. When used in transfer stations and measuring stations, the FLOWSIC500 provides the security of a continuous and blockage-free gas supply.

Benefits

gas flow meter and volume correction in one

Why use two devices for one task? Gas flow meters and with volume correctors are used for the same thing: Precise measurement of the transported gas volume. It makes sense to combine both into one device, saving on installation costs and reducing the number of interfaces.

When leaving the factory, the FLOWSIC500 gas flow meter already has everything you need. This makes installation easy and keeps installation costs low. The volume corrector can be integrated into the FLOWSIC500 on request. The volume corrector supports all typical correction algorithms, such as SGERG88, AGA 8, and AGA NX-19. There is the option of TZ or pTZ correction. The pTZ variant approved in accordance with MID. The right temperature and pressure sensors always come with the meter.
