Fit for the King: Flow Meters & CO2 at Budweiser

thermal mass flow meters in carbon dioxide applications in food and beverage industry

2012 Sierra Thermal Mass Meters at Budweiser Fujian Provence

When the King of Beers calls, we listen.

As the #1 imported beer in China, Budweiser needed better control of its carbon dioxide (CO2) gas mass flow measurement at its Fujian Province plant. After trying several other, non-direct mass flow measurement technologies, engineers chose Sierra’s immersible SteelMass® 640S thermal mass flow meter.

The reason behind their choice was that thermal mass is a direct mass flow measurement device requiring no secondary electronics to calculate the mass flow rate. Our 640S carbon dioxide flow meter has no moving parts, has extremely low pressure drop, large turndown, easy installation and long-term reliability. A flow meter fit for the King!

This post is the first in a series about our customers throughout China, where we’ve been building our brand for more than a decade. With our Flow Center of Calibration Excellence in Shanghai and a sales and support network in every province, there are many interesting stories to share about China’s rapidly growing economic force and our part in it.

Next week: an iron and steel success story!
