Thermal Flow Meter Helps Semiconductor Manufacturer Solve Boiler Fuel Gas Mystery for Multi-Building Campus

When the plant team at a large semiconductor manufacturer in the northwestern region of the U.S. found its boilers were consuming an unusually large quantity of natural gas, the numbers simply didn’t add up. Something mysterious was going on with the boilers, which incorrectly showed gas consumption above plant permit levels, and this situation would eventually cause regulatory reporting problems later on.
