3 Quick history of Flow at GE
2002: Panametrics becomes part of GE 2002: Launched Transit Time clamp-on gas 2003: Launched Tag Correlation clamp-on gas 2004: Focused on simplification and quality improvements 2005: Launched intrinsically safe, loop powered clamp-on meter. Continue work on simplification and quality. 2006: Started custody transfer for liquid program - major design initiative : Vortex and Coriolis products added to flow portfolio. Launched loop powered, wetted process meter. 2009: Launched Sentinel LCT for allocation and leak detection. Started developing platform for SIL applications to replace existing line of xx868 meters. 2010: Certified Sentinel LCT for OIML. Added high velocity capability to flare meters 2012: Released low flow flare capability and XGF868i, Panaflow HT and C-ET high temp transducers.
