Decade in Review at Sierra Instruments

Jan 06, 2020


Welcome to 2020!

The last decade was quite a ride with lots of twists and turns. It’s hard to re-cap it into words, but as we begin 2020 here’s a quick look at the top 5 blogs and videos of the last decade. These resonate to you for a common reason -all are teaching more about flow measurement and control. So, we will continue this theme in 2020!

Sierra’s major drive in the last decade was to invent best of class products for all gas, liquid, and steam flow measurements. This was kicked off in 2012 by launching the most accurate flow meter in the world- QuadraTherm with qMix for real-time gas measurement. Next was reinventing the next generation  vortex mass flow meter, the InnovaMass 240i/241 in 2015. Finally, we launched our own ultrasonic flow meter, the InnovaSonic 207i  for Liquid Flow With Thermal Energy/BTU Capability. In 2020 we have more exciting additions to our scientific line coming as we round out our complete flow meter offering.

As the new decade begins, we are hopeful for a great future and to continue to provide you with innovate flow solutions to help you meet your flow measurement needs.

Here’s to whole new year of possibilities!
