Title: SAGE METERING, INC. THERMAL MASS FLOW METERS


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

2
HISTORY OF SAGE
  • Founded in Sept 2002 by Managers from other
    Thermal Mass Flow Meter companies We are
    dedicated to extraordinary customer service
  • Our Management and Staff have over 120 years
    experience in Thermal Mass Flow Meters, and we
    have brought to the market many important
    innovations from our high performance, award
    winning Flow Meters

3
THE TECHNOLOGY
4
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 more detail later

5
MEASURE MASS FLOW RATE OR TOTALIZE COMMON GASES
  • Air (Compressed Air, Blower Air, Blast Furnace
    Air, Combustion Air, Plant Air, Make-Up Air)
  • Natural Gas (Plant Usage, Sub-Metering, Burner
    Control, Combustion Control, etc.)
  • Flare Gas (Vent Gas and Upset Dual Range)
  • Nitrogen, Argon (Steel Production)
  • Aeration Air, Digester Gas, Bio Gas, Landfill Gas
  • Oxygen (for Combustion Control or Ozonators)
  • Methane, Propane, Hydrogen, CO2, Helium
  • Chlorine (Hastelloy Sensors Required)

6
WHAT DOES A THERMAL MASS FLOW METER CONSIST OF?
  • All Sage Flow Meters have Probes (Insertion
    Style) or Flow bodies (In-Line Style) that
    support a pair of Sensors which are in contact
    with the gas

7
WHAT DO THE SENSORS CONSIST OF?
  • The Sensors are RTDs, which are resistance
    temperature detectors
  • They consist of highly stable reference-grade
    platinum windings
  • In fact, we use the same material that is used as
    Platinum Resistance Standards at the National
    Institute of Standards (NIST)

8
ARE THE SENSORS RUGGED?
  • The RTDs are clad in a protective 316 SS sheath
    for Industrial Environments

9
THE BASIC PRINCIPLE
  • 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
SAGE PROPRIETARY SENSOR DRIVE CIRCUITRY
  • The Sage Proprietary Sensor Drive Circuitry
    maintains a constant overheat 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, and the Sensor cools down as it
    loses energy
  • .....Continued

11
SAGE PROPRIETARY SENSOR DRIVE CIRCUITRY -
continued
  • The circuit equilibrium is disturbed, and
    momentarily the temperature difference between
    the Heated Sensor and the Reference Sensor has
    changed
  • The circuit will automatically (within 1 second),
    replace this lost energy, by heating up the Flow
    Sensor so the overheat temperature is restored

12
HOW DO THE RTDs MEASURE MASS FLOW
  • The current required to maintain this overheat
    represents the Mass Flow signal
  • There is no need for external Temperature or
    Pressure devices
