qMix, Sierra Instruments’ new flow meter gas mixing software package, is now included with every QuadraTherm 640i/780i thermal mass flow meter on a beta trial basis. qMix is a user-customisable gas mix feature that allows users to create custom gases or gas mixtures to compensate for gas compositional changes in the field.
Use qMix when the gas composition changes in the pipe or when moving the meter to another location with a different gas composition.
The major benefit is that now for the first time with thermal technology, you can retain accuracy without returning your thermal mass flow meter to the factory. If your flow meter is used in industries such as biogas or oil and gas, where gas compositions change over time, you will no longer need to send your meter back to the factory for gas recalibration every time your gas changes.
