Title: SAGE METERING, INC. THERMAL MASS FLOW METERS


1
SAGE METERING, INC.THERMAL MASS FLOW METERS
  • FOR MEASURING GAS FLOW

2
HISTORY OF SAGE METERING
  • Founded in Sept 2002 by Managers from other
    Thermal Mass Flow Meter companies
  • Sage Metering has been an Industry leader in high
    performance Thermal Mass Flow Meters for Gas
    Flow, and has pioneered numerous innovations,
    including introducing a Digital method of driving
    the sensor (versus the traditional drift-prone
    Wheatstone Bridge)

3
IN-SITU CALIBRATION CHECK
  • We are the only Thermal Mass Flow Meter
    Manufacturer that provides an "In-Situ
    Calibration Check" that assures that the Flow
    Meter still retains the original NIST Traceable
    Calibration. This simple 3-step check is
    conducted at a "No-Flow" (0 SCFM) condition
  • This customer check, verifies the Flow Meter's
    accuracy, and also confirms that the sensor is
    clean, and the Meter hasn't drifted or shifted

4
MARKET OVERVIEW
  • Sage provides high quality In-Line and Insertion
    Thermal Mass Flow Meters for a wide variety of
    Industrial, Commercial, and Environmental
    monitoring applications
  • For the Environment, Sage is a well respected
    supplier of Flow Meters for Carbon Credit
    verification for Greenhouse Gas reduction
  • For Energy related applications, the Sage NIST
    Traceable Thermal Mass Flow Meters have helped
    many companies increase productivity and
    efficiencies, while reducing energy costs

5
SAGE REPRESENTATIVESAND DISTRIBUTORS
  • Our Representatives are an integral part of our
    Sage Family
  • They are a critical link to our Customers
  • Our Representatives are Factory-trained for
    maximum local support

SAGE TECHNICAL PRESENTATIONS
7
WHAT IS A THERMAL MFM?
8
WHAT IS A THERMAL MASS FLOW METER?
  • It is a Meter that directly measures the Gas Mass
    Flow based on the principle of conductive and
    convective heat transfer

9
WHAT DO THE SENSORS CONSIST OF?
  • The sensors are RTDs, which are Resistance
    Temperature Detectors
  • They consist of highly stable reference-grade
    platinum windings clad in 316SS
  • One of the RTDs is self-heated by the circuitry
    and serves as the Flow Sensor
  • The other RTD acts as a Reference Sensor.
    Essentially it is used for temperature
    compensation

10
ARE THE SENSORS RUGGED?
  • The RTDs are clad in a protective 316 SS sheath
    for Industrial Environments

11
HOW DOES IT WORK?
  • The Sage proprietary sensor drive circuitry
    maintains a constant overheat, ?t, between the
    Flow Sensor and the Reference Sensor
  • As gas flows by the heated sensor (Flow Sensor),
    the molecules of flowing gas carry heat away from
    this Sensor, andthe Sensor cools down as it
    loses energy Continued

12
HOW DOES IT WORK? - Continued
  • The circuit will automatically(within 1 second)
    replace this lost energy by heating up the Flow
    Sensor so the overheattemperature is restored
  • The current required to maintain this overheat
    represents theMass Flow signal

13
ARE THEIR ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY?
14
INSTALLATION ISSUES

36
THERMAL MFM ADVANTAGES (OVER OTHER SPECIFIC
TECHNOLOGIES)
  • Temperature and Pressure measurement needed on
    Vortex, Turbine, Positive Displacement, Orifice,
    Pitot Tubes to obtain Mass Flow
  • Coriolis is expensive and has large head loss
  • All above have limited turn-down (poor low end
    sensitivity) and substantial pressure drop
  • Turbine and Positive Displacement have moving
    parts (may need frequent maintenance)
  • Insertion Style meters not available on above
    technologies (except Pitot Tube and some Vortex)

51
IN-SITU CALIBRATION CAPABILITY
  • All Sage Thermal Mass Flow Meters feature the
    ability for the customer to verify the meters
    accuracy, as long as a No Flow (0 SCFM)
    condition can be created
  • This is totally unique to Sage
  • For years, our Thermal Competitors have required
    expensive annual factory recalibrations
  • With the Insertion Style Flow Meter, and an SVA05
    Isolation Valve Assembly mounting accessory,
    creating a No Flow condition is easy
  • This simple 3-Step procedure can be done In-Situ
    and only takes a few minutes
  • It assures that the meter still retains the
    original NIST Calibration, and verifies that the
    meter hasnt drifted or shifted, and confirms
    that the sensor is clean

56
IN-SITU CALIBRATION EXPLANATION
  • The reason Sage can perform the In-Situ
    Calibration Check, is due to the Meters
    extraordinary reproducibility, even at a No
    Flow (0 SCFM) condition
  • This reproducibility is a direct result of having
    developed a Digital method of driving the sensors
    vs the drift-prone Wheatstone Bridge
  • Essentially, the customer can recreate an
    identical data point to that taken at Sage, at
    the one condition they can accurately reproduce
    No Flow (0 SCFM)

57
SAGE ZEROING CHAMBER(USED TO GENERATE A NO
FLOW CONDITION)
58
IN-SITU CALIBRATION mw COMPARISON
  • The customer simply compares the observed
    milliwatts (mw) on the Prime display to the
    Factorys original data point (noted on the Flow
    Meters Certificate of Conformance or the Meters
    tag). In fact, since the Flow Meters raw
    calibration data is linearized with a 5th order
    polynomial, that is stored digitally, any
    reproducible data point is sufficient to verify
    that the original data is intact, but only a No
    Flow (0 SCFM) data point can be truly generated
    by a customer in the field
