Thermal-mass gas metering: Proven for years, certified for the future
In this webinar, our expert Konrad Domanski, Product Manager for gas flow systems, talks about the use of thermal-mass technology for gas metering. The highlighted topics include the upcoming European standard for thermal-mass gas metering, presentation of long-time (>10 year) field reliability studies of thermal-mass gas meters and the future of gas metering.
The presentation is followed by a round table discussion and Q&A session with four experts involved in different aspects of gas meters: Francesco Rampazzo (SIT), Jim Shields (Secure Meters), Henri Shouten (NMi) and Mark Hornung (Sensirion).

Thermal-mass technology is a proven means for measuring the flow of gasses and liquids. The recent technological advances and miniaturization have enabled the use of the technology for high-volume, cost-sensitive applications such as natural gas metering. Two studies published in 2021 now also confirm the long-term reliability of this technology for applications in harsh environments. The studies investigated thermal-mass gas meters following operation in the field for up to over 10 years. They concluded that all meters were operating well within the accuracy limits prescribed during service and that the majority of meters still fulfilled the requirements for brand-new gas meters. Coupled with the release of a dedicated European standard in 2021 (EN 17526), thermal gas technology is therefore a cost-effective, proven and reliable solution for gas metering that is already powering millions of gas meters worldwide. Additionally, it offers extensive self- and network-diagnostic capabilities and is ready for a wide range of natural gas compositions including hydrogen blends and pure hydrogen.
