Rising costs and tighter emission control requirements have created a need for information that is more useful and precise. Sierra thermal mass flow meters fill this need and support cost-effective mill management in the following applications:
Mills need to measure the flow of combustion air to the recovery or power boiler to provide accurate air flow signals during load variations and maximum operating efficiency.
Many mills use averaging pitot tubes or venture flow meters for this purpose. Thermal flow meters, however, have distinct advantages over other flow measurement technologies in this application:
