Fluid Components International (FCI) has released its new Model ST51 mass flow meter for owners, operators and manufacturers of biogas production and methane capture and recovery systems.

The new Model ST51 provides high performance in an explosion-proof instrument that is easy-to-install, safe and requires virtually no-maintenance, the company says.

‘This flow meter is designed specifically to solve the unique challenges to flow metering in bioprocess generated methane,’ says Randy Brown, FCI’s marketing manager.

In anaerobic digester produced biogas, gas flow measurement is challenged by the wet, dirty nature of biogas, FCI says.
