Market Drivers: Thermal Flow Meters Gain Share Through Innovation

Aug 29, 2013

Flow Meter EvolutionFlow measurement requirements are not going away. If anything, market drivers like renewable energy, hydraulic fracturing of natural gas, and stricter emissions requirements are prompting a growing amount of industrial customers to find the best flow measurement solution for their application.

In The History & Evolution of Thermal Flowmeters, author, Jesse Yoder states, “While the worldwide market for Coriolis flowmeters now exceeds $1 billion, the market for thermal meters is under $150 million.”  But he also notes that this healthy competition drives Sierra, and other thermal companies, to push the envelop of thermal technology through innovation of better sensors and data manipulation.

Yoder’s Article explores:

  • Why the Coriolis market has developed more rapidly than others

  • History of thermal flow meters, with Sierra as a central provider

  • Market drivers

  • Thermal flow meter innovation, including Sierra’s QuadraTherm 640i/780i flow meters, which are driving new thermal market growth due to unprecedented accuracies.
