Ultrasonic gas flow measurement for biogas

SICK ultrasound technology makes the measurement of biogas reliable and effective for your biogas plant. No matter whether the gas is raw and freshly produced or dried and purified or readily upgraded for the injection into the natural gas grid. FLOWSIC600 Bio provides the operators of biogas production plants with valuable and reliable information for the optimization and control of processes. The sealed titanium transducers of the FLOWSIC600 Bio are build into a meter body made from low weight polyethylene (PE) – an ideal material for biogas environments.

Your benefits

  • The advantages of ultrasonic gas flow measurement adapted to the special application conditions of biogas plants
  • Measuring devices based on ultrasound technology can be applied in all process stages between fermentation and injection into natural gas grids
  • Low maintenance costs
  • No pressure drop

Field of application

  • Production of biogas, sewage gas, landfill gas or sludge gas in all non fiscal process stages
  • Dry, wet and corrosive gases (H2S)
  • Piping sizes DN80 – DN400 (3″ – 16″)
  • Low pressure and low flow applications
  • Biogas production stages where mechanical flow meters (e.g. turbine meters) quickly fail
  • Applications where a pressure drop is not acceptable
