Sage Metering”s Sage Prime industrial thermal mass flowmeter is designed to monitor the flowrate and consumption of existing natural gas lines. With mounting hardware, the insertion-style device installs into the main line or branches of any pipe from one inch and up. The meter is a good fit for submetering in industry at the building, or at the boiler or heater lines, or for determining individual gas consumption at condominiums or apartment buildings. The 4-20 mA flowrate output or 24 V pulsed output or full Modbus RS485 RTU communications are suitable for viewing, logging, or integrating the gas flow and totalized consumption on an hourly, daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis. Sage partners can assist with data storage, integration with applications such as Excel, or viewing on the Internet. The flowmeter is powered locally or remotely by 12 VDC, 24 VDC or 115/230 VAC and draws 2.4 Watts. It also features graphical display of flowrate, totalized flow, temperature, as well as an indication for ongoing diagnostics.
