Welcome to the Sage in the Flow blog, where I share information on thermal mass flow meter manufacturers and the benefits of mass flow measurement. In this article, I share information on our company, Sage Metering.
Sage Metering is a manufacturer of thermal mass flow meters that are used to measure and monitor gas mass flow for a variety of industrial, environmental, and municipal applications. We are in Monterey, California.
Mass Flow Meter Manufacturer’s History
Back in September of 2002, I founded Sage Metering with my partners. Today, David Huey remains as the Chief Financial Officer, and I am the President and CEO.
In 2003, our company introduced the first hybrid-digital thermal mass flow meter instead of the traditional Wheatstone bridge technology. As a result, improved resolution and reproducibility were achieved, and markets flew open for using this type of meter.
Our development had momentous implications as it not only eliminated the drift associated with the conventional technology, but it also permitted the ability to produce a reproducible zero flow. The role of creating a zero flow enables the meter to have its calibration verified while in the field without pulling it from service.
Sage Metering was the first thermal flow meter manufacturer to provide a unique and easy to invoke on-site calibration verification for thermal flow meters. On-site calibration verification saves time and money since the user does not have to remove the meter and return it to the factory (or a third party) for annual flow meter calibration. This innovation makes it possible to use thermal mass meters in environmental applications to report greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) per EPA regulations, as well as quantify carbon credits per U.S. carbon credit protocols.
As a result of our company’s breakthrough, Sage Metering received the 2012 Flow Control Innovations Award.
Sage Metering also introduced a portable battery-operated thermal mass flow meter, known as the Prism®, which can record up to 3,800 gas flow points during ten hours of operation. As a result of the Prism® innovation, in 2011, Sage Metering was awarded the Flow Control Innovations Award.
Experience Engineering Staff
Many of our experienced application engineers have worked in the thermal mass flow marketplace since its inception. We have a dedicated team to help our customers choose the right meter for their applications.
