Each of the ultrasonic gas flow meters in the FLOWSIC600-XT product family has been designed for custody transfer applications and fulfills the requirements of all the common national and international standards. There are four device versions to choose from to meet specific gas flow meter performance requirements. Determining which one to use varies, which is why our performance-oriented classification of the FLOWSIC600-XT, -XT Forte, -XT 2plex, and -XT Quatro is the ideal first step in ensuring there is a focus on the task at hand and customer requirements, allowing a unique solution to be provided. All of the FLOWSIC600-XT versions can be installed with ease into any custody transfer measurement application with a nominal width of between 3 and 48 inches, and they can also be conveniently connected to all of the most popular flow computers on the market.
Ultrasonic meters provide several advantages over differential pressure meters such as improved rangeability, a higher turndown, no calibration and valuable diagnostics. The FLOWSIC600 DRU, an innovative dual-path ultrasonic meter is tailor-made for upstream and gathering applications. Specially adapted sensors and path layout combines the benefits of a FLOWSIC600 with an unmatched reliability and robustness for upstream conditions. The integrated 10D upstream piping allows for high measurement accuracy even without high-pressure calibration, resulting in faster ROI due to the lower operational costs of a virtually maintenance-free meter.
FLOWSIC100 Flare is based on more than 30 years of experience in ultrasonic sensor technology at SICK and offers outstanding performance and durability. The primary area of application involves calculating greenhouse gas emissions based on the amount of flare gas measured in accordance with regulatory requirements. FLOWSIC100 Flare has been developed for precisely this purpose.
The outstanding ultrasonic transducer technology combined with state-of-the-art signal processing gives you the best measurement performance at very low speeds close to zero. Even during emergency shutdown events and at extremely high speeds, the measuring device stays accurate due to its optimized sensor shape in combination with high-speed measurement algorithms.
