SICK Ltd Flowsic100 Flare

Reliable gas flow measurement in flare gas applications

The FLOWSIC100 Flare product family is designed for flare gas and steam flow measurements. The product family is characterized by a unique flow-optimized sensor design. This innovative design minimizes flow-generated noise and signal drift when gas velocities are particularly high. Modern signal processing and high-efficiency transducers enable high-time resolution for signals and thus deliver accurate measurements, even at extremely low gas flow rates.

The standard system configuration includes two sender/receiver units or one measuring probe and the MCUP control unit. The MCUP unit is used to input and output signals; to calculate reference values (normalization), molecular weight and mass flow; to record gas volumes, and to provide user-friendly control via the LCD display.
