Sierra Instruments has announced the publication of its new free 40-page Sierra Clean Energy Guide in printed format.

The guide offers engineers, scientists, plant managers, and designers alike an up close look at how Sierra is partnering with customers from all over the world to develop sustainable solutions to some of today’s most pressing environmental problems.

From high performance flow measurement tools that help create biofuel from solid wastes, to unlocking the carbon history in Antarctic ice to determine how much CO2 the ocean can digest, the Sierra Clean Energy Guide details a broad range of problem/solution scenarios.

“The environmental and economic challenges we face right now are huge,” said Matthew J. Olin, President of Sierra, “and we’re doing everything we can to support the visionaries that are passionately pursuing a more sustainable future. Our new Sierra Clean Energy Guide introduces some of our most innovative partners and the unique solutions we have developed by ‘Thinking Ahead’… together.”

“Geothermal and Solar industry insiders will find this guide invaluable.”

The guide shows how Sierra’s 241 insertion vortex mass flow meter drives steam measurement efficiency with improved accuracy, wider turndown, and reliability at a lower installed cost, while end-users in the Biogas, Wastewater and Landfill industries will see how challenging applications in these sectors are met using Sierra’s best-selling thermal mass flow meter offerings, the Model 640S and 780S.

In addition, the guide explores how water and energy conservation efforts are met using the Model 205 clamp-on, non-intrusive ultrasonic flow meter designed to measure thermal energy flow rate and totalised energy consumption in liquid heating and cooling applications.

These are just a few of the powerful solutions that readers will find in the Sierra Clean Energy Guide.

The publication of the guide follows the news that Sierra Instrument’s Smart-Trak® 50 Series OEM flow controller was honoured by the readers of Flow Control Magazine in late 2010, with their 2010 Product Innovation Award for its advances in flow control technology.

The award marked the fifth consecutive annual innovation award given to Sierra by the readers of Flow Control Magazine.
