Our Company

Experts in Flow-Measurement – for 35 years

FLOW Instruments was founded in Duesseldorf, Germany in 1981 by two engineers. Today, we are located in Solingen, Germany, with 35 employees. In 2008 we became part of Chart Industries and our collaboration with our colleagues is your guarantee of continued technical excellence and global sales and engineering support.

Every year, we produce approx. 1000 of our durable, reliant and efficient Measuring Systems for cryogenics and CO2 and undertake more than 3000 calibrations at our customer's sites. For these reasons, we hold the highest market share in Germany and Europe - and our product quality assurance 'Made in Germany' is consistent with our expansion into Latin America, Malaysia, China, Russia and the Middle East.
