With more than 40 years of experience developing and selling inline and insertion thermal flow meter technology, Sierra has established a large and successful installed base. Our immersible thermal gas mass flow meters were also deemed North America's #1 selling immersible thermal mass flow meter (2009 Flow Research, Yoder). We offer both inline and insertion thermal mass flow meters for heavy and light industrial applications. Our thermal flow meters range from our highest-performance QuadraTherm four-sensor technology to our more traditional, but also very accurate, two-sensor technology instruments.
Sierra’s immersible thermal gas mass flow meter technology offers customers rugged and reliable industrial gas and air mass flow measurement for small pipes, as well as very large ducts or stacks that have non-uniform velocity profiles, high turn-down requirements, dirty gas streams, wide temperature ranges, and fast velocity and temperature changes. With our new 640i QuadraTherm thermal flow meter, now you get extreme precision with percent of reading accuracy as part of the total QuadraTherm package.
All of our thermal gas flow meters feature the long-term stability of our patented no-drift DrySense swaged velocity sensor technology and are backed by a lifetime warranty. As the name implies, Sierra’s swaged velocity sensor is the only thermal sensor in the world that is truly “dry” using no organic or cement fillers that crack and shift causing drift over time. For specified heavy industrial products, we offer the following digital communications solutions: HART, Modbus RTU, and Profibus DP. View all of our digital communications solutions, offering turnkey results for industrial systems automation and control.
