SICK's New FTMg 4-in-1 Thermal Flow Meter

20 May 2020

SICK’s new FTMg thermal flow meter simultaneously measures gas flow, pressure and temperature then computes the combined values to detect leaks in pneumatic systems and monitor compressed air energy consumption in real time.

Using the SICK FTMg Thermal Flow Meter’s on-board algorithm flow, pressure and temperature values calculate the energy of gas passing through the flow channel in kWh. By comparing to the electrical power demand of the compressor, the SICK FTMg can detect changes in the efficiency of a pneumatic system. The compact device promises major benefits for improved process efficiency of machines, as well as to achieve plant-wide savings as part of ISO EN 50001-compliant energy management systems.
