Ultrasonic flow metering in distribution networks

Natural gas is delivered to consumers via pipelines or through LNG import terminals to local distributions at measurement points known as city gates. Here, the gas is odorized and pressures are regulated to allow use by end consumers. SICK’s ultrasonic gas flow meter FLOWSIC500 is perfect for fiscal measurement in distribution networks from city gates to industrial burners. The uninterruptable, flow-through design, internal flow conditioning, and non-mechanical measurement means virtually no maintenance and allows for installation in almost any meter set regardless of piping configuration.
