New Animated Video Shows Principle of Operation of Thermal Mass Flow Meters

New video entitled, "Principle of Operation: Thermal Mass Flow Meter"

MONTEREY, CA — April 24, 2014 — Sierra Instruments, a leading global mass flow instrument manufacturer, announces the release of their new video entitled, "Principle of Operation: Thermal Mass Flow Meter", which shows how the physics of thermal dispersion technology allow for accurate and reliable direct mass flow measurement. Facilities managers, process engineers, and plant managers will find the video provides information on how thermal mass flow meter technology offers an economical solution for gas measurement in large pipes and ducts. Watch video now.


"We are excited to release this exciting new animated video which takes a deep dive into how this amazing technology actually works from a gas molecules perspective. Through this educational video, end users will not only know how the technology works, but understand its advantages in gas flow applications across numerous industries. A special highlight in the video looks at the recommendations on calibration best practices to assure best field accuracy of the instrument. Matthew Olin, CEO, Sierra Instruments.

Thermal flow meters are often more economical than other mass flow meters and have become extremely popular due to high turndown (up to 1000 to 1) giving ability to measure very low to very high flows with the same instrument. In addition, they are rugged, reliable, have no moving parts, easy to insert via hot-tap, have negligible pressure drop, and are economical. Standard accuracy of thermal devices is +/-1.0% of full scale flow, but recent innovations, as with Sierra's QuadraTherm® thermal meter, has pushed accuracy to +/-0.5% of reading rivaling that of coriolis meters.

3Mâ„¢ Extreme Sealing Tape is a family of single coated, pressure sensitive adhesive tapes designed for difficult sealing applications. The backing on this tape is an ionomer film that is very tough yet flexible and abrasion resistant. The very soft and thick acrylic adhesive has excellent sealing properties and good outdoor durability. This single coated tape is designed to seal over an existing joint, seam, or penetration. The adhesive is designed to adhere well to the ionomer film so that overlapping tape joints can be made while maintaining a strong seal. 3Mâ„¢ Extreme Sealing Tape - instant sealing that rolls on fast and looks good.
