Burner consumption measurement with all-in-one flowmeter

Pressure and temperature compensated flow measurement benefits plant safety


The operation of a burner requires a huge amount of energy and is therefore costly. Continuous monitoring of the natural gas consumption of the burner is necessary to always allow the burning process to be as efficient as possible. Another measuring objective of the burner consumption measurement is to determine maintenance requirements early on and carry out furnace overhauls according to schedule. In glass melting processes the soot level has an impact on the performance of a burner which can cause an unexpected interruption.


Intelligent OPTISWIRL Vortex flowmeters with integrated pressure measurement always indicate the static pressure and furnace overhauls can be scheduled accordingly. This leads to a significant increase in plant safety.

Safety benefits

  • All-in-one in one device for direct output of standard flow, temperature, pressure, mass

  • Increase in plant safety: High measuring accuracy and reliability due to multiple measurements at only one measuring point

  • No losses due to changing operating conditions: high transparency and safety in the process despite changing temperature and pressure conditions

  • Enables targeted control of maintenance measures in the energy system as well as optimisation of the system with regards to energy management according to ISO 50001 

  • Measurement of the static pressure indicates the service status of the burner

  • Notification alerts can be classified from purely informative to device errors with failure current output (acc. to NAMUR NE107)
