Jan 04, 2016

flow solutions of 2015

Can you believe it’s 2016? At Sierra, 2015 was a busy year of launches with our new website, vortex mass flow meter product line, and employee development with Sierra University. Every step of the way we were inspired to bring our products and customer experience to the next level.

One of the areas of our website we enjoy most is our “Let’s Talk Flow” blog. It allows us to take you behind the scenes here at Sierra, meet our team members, keep you up-to-date on the latest Sierra news and share our knowledge with you. We thought it would be fun to take a look back at the most popular and biggest stories of 2015.

Sierra’s Biggest News

These two blog posts introduced the two biggest pieces of news from Sierra in 2015. Both projects are the result of months of hard work, energy and innovation by team Sierra. We couldn’t be prouder of our amazing team and the new product and website they created.

New Vortex iSeries InnovaMass

We completely re-designed our InnovaMass iSeries, bringing you the next generation 240i and 241i vortex volumetric flow and multivariable mass flow meters. Visit the blog post to watch the introduction video and learn more about the new features and improvements.

New Sierra Instruments Website

We’re always striving to make finding the right information and ordering the right flow meter for your application easier.

Monterey Bay Beach Cleanup on Earth Day

Team Sierra had a great time helping clean up Monterey Bay Beach on Earth Day.

Oldies, but Goodies

While we talk a lot about new blog posts and stories, some of our older posts are still very popular resources for the flow industry. Here’s a look back at the top three stories published prior to 2015 that continue to garner popularity.

2016 Preview

We have big plans for making your experience with Sierra even better in 2106.  We will add additional e-commerce, customer, & rep portals to our website, create more Tech Tip videos and white papers to guide you every step of the way in your flow meter specification. We will continue to serve our community through outreach programs and focus on employee and customer training programs. It’s going to be a great year!

Stay tuned in 2016 for more behind the scenes technical know-how from our Sierra team.
