For consistent accuracy and lowest life-cycle costs, FLOW Instruments' metering systems for Liquefied Natural Gas are the market's unrivalled choice.
Application specific and according to your needs
The main field of application for FLOW metering systems is regulated gas distribution with semi-trailers. Our metering systems meet a variety of approvals including European Measurements Instrument Directive (MID), CE and OIML (International Organization of Legal Metrology), PTB Germany and numerous other country specific approvals.
Accurate flow measurement and low maintenance costs
Our standard FLOW Metering systems cover flow rates from 1000 to 70.000 kg/h (2200 to 154,000 lb/h) with further sizes available upon request. Flowcom 3000 is the heart of our metering system. This electronic device combines the best components for temperature and differential pressure measuring, offers very high durability and diagnostics without any additional tools.
Handling of different LNG mixtures:
To ensure the highest possible measuring accuracy, the system is suitable to enter manually the different mixtures (mixture of different components or elements) of LNG.
As an alternative the density can be measured dynamically during the delivery with the FLOW IDC (Inline Density Column) which is based on the FLOW Instruments dynaflowTM technology.
Benefits for your company:
FLOW Instruments meter systems are developed to run for more than 15 years. The measuring section does not have any moving parts, is maintenance free and carries a lifetime warranty.
Full cost transparency is assured with our calibration and service contracts. For a fixed monthly fee per trailer we provide a full service package backed by our 35 years in the business.
Benefits for fleet managers:
The system's internal data memory stores more than 4000 deliveries that can be transferred to your data systems by wireless Bluetooth. The system back up ensures no data loss, even with total power failure. The characteristics of each Flowmeter are easily adapted to the customer's applications.
Additional cost savings:
To reduce the extremely high maintenance costs for pump failure, the Flowcom 3000 can be equipped with our 'PumpSmart' option. This option will manage the cooling time for the pump and includes a pump time tracking system that displays the next scheduled maintenance for convenient planning.
Benefits for drivers:
With its colored display and intuitive keyboard, operation and handling of the metering system is simple, convenient and safe. Data transfer through Bluetooth is a huge benefit for time and accuracy versus the manual typing required hand held and rival systems.Custom solutions and special applications are available on request.
