ifm keeps an eye on the consumption of costly industrial gases

Accurately measuring the usage of expensive industrial gases such as argon, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and helium, is easy with the new SD range of high-performance flow sensors from ifm electronic. And because they maintain high accuracy over their full measuring range, the new units also function as an invaluable aid to …
