Thermal Mass Flow Meter | How do they operate?
Thermal Mass Flow Meter

What is a thermal mass flow meter? As gas flows by the heated sensor (flow sensor), molecules of the flowing gas transport heat away from this sensor, the sensor cools and energy is lost. Flow metering is the measurement of flow. A thermal mass flow me […] Read More

Chlorine Gas
Measure Chlorine Gas Flow at Water Treatment Plant

Chlorine gas is used in water treatment and thermal mass flow meters are ideal to measure real-time flow rates of chlorine which is required for optimum water purification. Chlorine Gas Water Treatment Chlorination of water is a common way municipal wa […] Read More

Sage Thermal Mass Flow Meter Calibration
gas mass flow rate units of measure

Meter Calibration Required The Sage Thermal Mass Flow Meter calibration is the foundation for the award-winning meter to achieve accurate gas mass flow measurement. A critical portion of any thermal mass flow meter is the factory calibration. The flow […] Read More

Natural Gas Measurement

In the event of a natural gas disruption, propane makes a reasonable backup for natural gas, and thermal mass flow meters are used to improve combustion control and efficiency to the boiler. Propane versus Natural Gas Propane versus natural gas? In the […] Read More

Ozone – Water Purification

Ozone systems are frequently offered as an alternative to chlorination in water treatment plants. This method is environmentally friendly and dependable. Generally, a mix of 10% ozone (O3) and 90% oxygen (O2) is employed, sometimes with a trace amount […] Read More

Air Separation Gases
industrial air

Air separation plants separate atmospheric air into its primary constituents, which are approximately 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, 0.9% Argon and a handful of rare inert gases (xenon, neon, hydrogen, helium, krypton and carbon dioxide). These facilities p […] Read More

Natural Gas Flow Measurement by Sage
Flow Meter Types

Natural gas measurement is an area that Sage Thermal Mass Flow Meters excel in. There are various applications where natural gas flow rate needs to be determined, and among these applications include combustion control, submetering, reporting greenhous […] Read More


Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas that remains in the atmosphere for over 10 years and accounts for approximately 1/3 of all methane emissions in landfills (landfills are the largest human-related source of methane in the U.S.). It is 21 times more […] Read More

Landfill Gas

Landfill gas is generated from the breakdown of municipal solid waste. There are hundreds of municipal landfills, all of which produce a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide with traces of nitrogen, oxygen and other gases. In active landfills, these g […] Read More


Monitoring hydrogen (and nitrogen) in solar cell manufacturing is an important part of the quality control in polysilicon manufacturing. In-Line Thermal Mass Flow Meters do not require separate temperature and pressure measurement, have fast response t […] Read More

Helium Gas

Helium (and also, argon and hydrogen), can be used in heat treating. where its measurement is required. Thermal Mass Flow Meters have the fast response and turndown to help control the proper mixture for heat treating. Helium is also used as a coolant […] Read More

Greenhouse Gases

The US EPA mandate per 40 CFR Part 98 requires reporting of greenhouse gas emissions (in tons of mass flow), effective January 1, 2010. Over 10,000 facilities have operations that fall under these reporting requirements. Some of those applications are […] Read More

Flue Gas
IPCC Report on Climate Change Says Transition to Clean Energy

Flue gas measurement is often required for environmental reporting, and thermal mass flow meters offer a reliable means to measure and monitor flue gases which contain greenhouse gas. Many industrial processes in chemical and food processing, power pla […] Read More

Flare Gas

Oil Refineries, well drilling operations (such as off shore oil rigs), waste water treatment plants chemical processing plants, natural gas plants, and landfills are but a sampling of applications where waste gases are flared. Flares are subject to str […] Read More

Digester Gas – Waste Water Treatment

Digester gas (typically 65% methane and 35% carbon dioxide) is produced when organic matter, such as raw sewage, decomposes in the absence of oxygen. Modern WWT processes incorporate digester gas flow measurement systems for the plant’s process perform […] Read More

Digester Gas – Farming Operations

Digester gas from farming and other agricultural operations is generated from the breakdown of livestock waste when the gas is captured within a large plastic cover, known as a digester. The manure decomposes in the absence of oxygen. Normally, the dec […] Read More

Combustion Air Flow

One of the most important ways to reduce energy consumption in a manufacturing environment is to optimize the combustion control on industrial boilers, steam generators, furnaces, ovens, smelters and process heaters. By monitoring the air and fuel rate […] Read More


Biogas is produced when organic matter such as household food waste, plant matter, or industrial waste decomposes in the absence of oxygen. This may take place in an anaerobic digester to produce biogas. Biogas is primarily a mixture of methane (about […] Read More

Ammonia Measurement
RMA number to return my Sage mass flow meter for service?

Ammonia is commonly used as a fertilizer, an industrial coolant and reduces NOx emissions from combustion sources. In each case, thermal mass flow meters can be used for ammonia measurement, and Sage has uniquely addressed the issues associated with sa […] Read More
