Ensure and improve production capacity using a flow meter in the industry of materials manufaturing
Measure, Discover and Improve
Your utilities, including your compressed air system, play a vital role in your production capacity. This is especially true in industries such as metal, plastic, cement, and wood manufacturing, where there is a significant consumption of various utilities like compressed air, nitrogen, CO2, and more. Improving the efficiency of these utilities directly translates to improved production. But where do you begin?
With 4-in-1 flow meter, you gain valuable insights into your energy flows. Uncover large consumers, detect leakages, identify inefficient usage and overdue maintenance. By utilizing real-time data, you can justify investment in improvements and effectively manage maintenance, ultimately reducing costs and saving both money and energy. Flow meters precisely measure and display the consumption of air or gas, providing you with essential information about where, when, and how much is being used.

The right flow meter with ease of installation
There are various flow meter options available, each with its own unique characteristics. For compressed air and technical gases most commonly used are thermal mass and differential pressure flow meters, as well as insertion type and in-line flow meters. With this set of flow meters you can effectively measure your entire system, from the supply side to the demand side. Whether you need to identify small leakages or assess the complete consumption profile, these flow meters offer an excellent price-to-accuracy ratio, ensuring a significant return on investment. Installation is simple and insertion type flow meters can even be installed under pressure, eliminating the need for production downtime. You can easily achieve accurate measurements without disrupting your operations.
Benefits of the VPFlowScope 4-in-1 flow meters
Are you in need of a reliable flow meter to measure industrial gases or compressed air? The VPFlowScope portfolio covers measurements from the supply side to the demand side. The VPFlowScope flow meters are suitable for measuring compressed air, nitrogen, CO2, oxygen, helium, argon and other industrial gases. The VPFlowScope flow meters all measure four principles in one so you have the complete picture of your system’s performance: mass flow, pressure, temperature and total flow. Additionally, our flow meters support bi-directional flow measurement, making them ideal for applications like ring networks.
Thanks to their modular concept, you can start small and easily expand over time. Our exchangeable VPSensorCartridge system ensures effortless servicing without disrupting production. The VPFlowScope flow meters feature an intuitive interface and they seamlessly integrate with any BMS or energy management system, simplifying data integration and analysis. Installation is easy, particularly for our insertion type flow meters, which can be inserted and removed using a ball valve without the need to halt production.

Discover your savings potential
With just a few parameters, you can already get a rough idea of the annual costs for the compressed air consumption. There are different ways compressed air is wasted. A common one is leakages which every compressed air systems has. This is your low hanging fruit. Measure them, allocate them and start saving money!
