“Reduce Energy Costs and Enhance Emissions Monitoring Systems”

With inline and insertion flow meters, you get precision flow measurement. Our white paper, describes how you can improve accountability, reduce waste and enhance emissions monitoring processes with thermal flow meters. Direct mass flow monitoring of natural gas and other fuel gases is the key to optimizing combustion processes and streamlining accounting procedures. Designed for easy installation in fuel gas and air feed lines, Fox Thermal flow meters can help you:

  • Analyze Demand
  • Improve Efficiency
  • Reduce Waste
  • Provide accurate reports for submetering
  • Facilitate custody transfer
  • Help resolve billing disputes

“Greenhouse(GHG) Environmental Monitoring Guide”

The US EPA has regulations pertaining to the monitoring and reporting of greenhouse gases from several industries. This paper offers information on how the accurate measurement of greenhouse gases using thermal mass flow technology is ideal for the following applications:

  • Natural Gas Monitoring
  • Flare Gas Monitoring
  • Vent Gas Monitoring
  • Biogas and Digester Gas Monitoring
  • Landfill Gas Recovery
  • Wastewater Digester Gas Monitoring
