Ensure and improve production capacity using a flow meter in the food & beverage industry

A flow meter show you where, when and how much how you can optimize and thus save energy.

Measure, Discover and Improve

Your utilities, including your compressed air system, are of great importance for your production capacity. This is particularly true in industries like food and beverage, where the consumption of utilities such as compressed air, nitrogen, CO2, and others is substantial. Enhancing the efficiency of these utilities directly translates into improved production. However, where should you start?

By utilizing a 4-in-1 flow meter, you can acquire valuable insights into your energy flows. Unveil major consumers, identify leakages, detect inefficient usage, and pinpoint overdue maintenance. With real-time data at your disposal, your investments in improvements can be justified and you can effectively manage maintenance, resulting in reduction of costs and conserving both money and energy. Flow meters accurately measure and display the consumption of air or gas, equipping you with vital information regarding where, when, and how much is being used.

✓ Ensure production capacity

Get insight into demand side requirements so you can match this with supply side and improve overall efficiency. Discover mis-use, leakage, optimize maintenance.

✓ Reduce energy consumption

Discover where you can eliminate leakages, uncover inappropriate use, reduce pressure and more. Improvements in your compressed air system can lead up to 50% of compressed air savings.

✓ Save money: quick ROI

The return on investment for flow meters and other sensors is typically 6 to 12 months. Installation is easy and dedicated support is available for quick service.


Choosing the right flow meter with easy installation

When it comes to flow meters, there are several options available, each with its own distinct characteristics. For applications involving compressed air and technical gases, the most commonly used flow meters are thermal mass and differential pressure flow meters, as well as insertion type and in-line flow meters. With this range of flow meters, you can effectively measure your entire system, from the supply side to the demand side. Whether you need to detect small leakages or assess the overall consumption profile, these flow meters offer a great balance between price and accuracy, ensuring a significant return on investment. The installation process is simple, and insertion type flow meters can even be installed under pressure, eliminating the need for production downtime. With these flow meters, you can easily achieve accurate measurements without disrupting your operations.

VPFlowScope 4-in-1 flow meters benefits

If you are looking for a reliable flow meter to measure industrial gases or compressed air, the VPFlowScope portfolio is here to meet your needs. From the supply side to the demand side, these flow meters provide reliable measurements. They are specifically designed to measure various industrial gases such as compressed air, nitrogen, CO2, oxygen, helium, argon, and more. The VPFlowScope flow meters all offer the complete picture of your system’s performance by measuring four key principles in one: mass flow, pressure, temperature, and total flow. Moreover, our flow meters support bi-directional flow measurement, making them highly suitable for applications like ring networks.


With their modular concept, the VPFlowScope flow meters allow you to start small and expand over time. Our exchangeable VPSensorCartridge system ensures easy servicing without disrupting production. The flow meters feature a user-friendly interface and seamlessly integrate with any Building Management System (BMS) or energy management system, simplifying data integration and analysis. Installation is a breeze, especially with our insertion type flow meters, which can be inserted and removed without stopping production by using a ball valve.
