ThalesNano has launched a new form of gas meter called QuantiFlow that was developed in a research collaboration with MOL, an integrated oil and gas company in Central & Eastern Europe.

The company said that the system was designed to overcome the shortcomings of gas flow meters currently on the market: unlike other gas meters, QuantiFlow is not dependent on gas composition and so is ideal for measuring the flow of gas after gas liquid separation where gas composition may change over time.

According to the company, QuantiFlow is reliable, simple to calibrate, and requires little or no maintenance.

The system is perfect for laboratories in the chemical, food, and petrochemical industries where experiments may be conducted over several weeks or months, the company claimed.

The company added that originally, the QuantiFlow was developed as part of ThalesNano’s P-Cube and H-Cube Maxi reactors.
