There is some irony in that thermal flow meters identify areas to conserve energy while most meters require significant energy to use them. That is why Sage Metering took on the challenge to develop the most energy efficient thermal mass flow meter, proving that energy conservation begins by choosing the correct meter.
Energy Efficiency and Conservation
Saving energy is currently a global focus as indicated by the implementation of the ISO 50001 model which focuses on energy savings by making organizations more efficient. On a broad scale, the goal of companies should be to reduce air pollution, cut global warming emissions, decrease dependence on coal and other fossil fuels, and lead the world toward a cleaner, healthier energy future.
Save Energy with Sage Thermal Mass Meters
At Sage, we wanted to do our part by offering the most energy efficient meter. Indeed, the Sage meter draws 2.4 watts, a mere 10% of the power needed by other manufacturers’ thermal meters. To put that in perspective, if the industry is selling 65,000 thermal mass flow meters a year ($200M), and a non-Sage meter requires an additional 17 watts to operate (over a Sage SIP, SIX or SIA model) that could waste almost 1 million watts each year.
Sage Metering thermal mass flow meters, including the Sage Prime, are known for the three-step, three minute in-situ calibration. If you are purchasing mass flow meters to help identify wasteful energy or improve efficiencies, why would you use a meter that requires ten times more energy than the Sage SIP, SIX or SIA?
Saving Energy by Choosing the Right Meter
As companies do their part by implementing energy management systems, or seeking ways to improve efficiencies, Sage will continue to provide meters with low power consumption. The most energy efficient thermal mass flow meter is manufactured by Sage Metering; revealing that saving energy begins by making the Sage choice.
