Press Release Summary:
GHG Certified mass flow meters totalize methane or natural gas burned, enabling calculation of CO2 equivalent emissions. Boiler-Trak(TM) thermal mass flowmeters suit stationary combustion applications, while Model 640S, with 100:1 turndown and no moving parts, is optimized for landfill gas. Model 780S, for gas and electricity producers, measures methane to process equipment. All conform to EPA Rule mandating that companies emitting more than 25,000 tons/yr of CO2 equivalent report emissions.

Sierra Introduces Range of Measurement Solutions for EPA Mandated Green House Gas Reporting
This week, Sierra Instruments introduced a line of mass flow meters Certified by Sierra for Green House Gas (GHG) reporting. All Sierra GHG meters now conform to the new EPA rule (40 CFR Part 98), which mandates that as of January 2, 2010, companies in the United States that emit more than 25,000 tons/year of CO2 equivalent must report GHG emissions. It is estimated that approximately 10,000 of the country's largest businesses will be affected.
Sierra's GHG Certified mass flow meters provide an economical way to totalize methane or natural gas burned, enabling the calculation of CO2 equivalent emissions. Sierra has extensive experience in producing highly accurate and repeatable mass flow meters for methane (CH4) as well as N20, SF6, HFC's, PFC's and CO2 as called out in the EPA mandate.
"This is really our strong suit," says Matthew J. Olin, President of Sierra. "Our customers saw the environmental writing on the wall some time ago and we have been steadfastly pursuing both sustainable and profitable industry flow measurement solutions ever since. To make it easier for our customers facing this measurement challenge to find the meter they need, we've established a dedicated webpage
