Flow Meter Industrial Applications & Uses

In general, thermal flow meters can be used to measure virtually any gas flow. Restrictions apply, of course, but thermal flow meters have been used in the following applications and industries — and continue to be used every day:

  • Automotive Industry
    Compressed air monitoring • Natural Gas consumption • Powder paint air flow • Paint booth/paint oven ventilation
  • Utility Services
    Electric, gas, water works & sewage plants, for monitoring and control of:
    Stack or flue gas • Waste water aeration • Ventilation systems  • Digester gas • Gas flows • Nitrogen purge • Combustion air • Boiler inlet air
